There is much to do in Quebec City, and taking a guided tour will ensure you don't miss any of it.

Quebec City is an awesome place and the port places you right in the middle of the old town. There is so much to do and see and as long as you are able to walk, you can access most of what you need to see in town. The city tour was a bit long for my taste and we really only got out of the bus at the citadel, a park and for the elevator ride for the panoramic view of the city. We were glad that we explored the old town at length and on foot the day of embarkation and the morning before the tour.

I will repeat this many times, but you could easily have found an independent contractor to give you a better, shorter, more self-directed tour for the same (if not lower) price. Also, while they are more than happy to sell you the tour, HAL does not send staff members on them to maintain the quality/consistency of the experience for guests. This tour was just OK.

A great tour if, like us, you've never been. We had a very sharp guide and the coach gives you the ability to get a real feel for that part of the world.

Very knowledgeable guide showed us the lower and upper sections of the city, let us run through the Frontenac, pointed out some side streets and shops and then took us to the Battlefield are before heading to Montmorency Falls. With her overview we were able to spend the afternoon on our own and had a great time exploring the area.

We had 2 days here and walked from the ship to explore the old town by ourselves on the first day. There was a shuttle but the line was very long and the walk only about 3/4 of a mile. Very easy walk. We took the Grand Tour of Quebec on day 2 and went to the Chateau Frontenac, Ste Anne de Beaupre, Montmorency Falls and Ile d'Orleans. It was a very nice tour and included a lunch at a farm style restaurant.

Upon arrival we went on Historic and Modern Quebec tour. It was a quick ride around the city which gave us a quick overview and familiarization. We were able to get off at the Chateau Frontenac and walk around for about half hour. The following day we did a Grand Exploration Of Quebec excursion and visited the world-renowned shrine of Ste-anne-de-beaupre & Montmorency Falls. Many kudos to our tour guide Johanna who was with us for two of the tours.

Quebec City is the essence of French Canada. Very interesting historical buildings; the Chateau Frontenac is not to be missed. A carriage ride offers a great way to experience the city.

The visit to Island of Orleans, the incredible countryside, the sugar shack farm and the Mauvide-Genest Manor were so much fun. Excellent tour guide and excellent, comfortable bus. The visit to the sugar shack was awesome. We could have spent more time there. The falls at Montmorency were ok.
