Yay, Quebec City is on the list of options! Anyway, the old town of Quebec City is beautiful, feels like Europe in many places. Thank goodness for the Funicular because walking up and down those steep hills is too much for me. How do they do it in the winter?? Anyway, loved Quebec City. 100% charm. Read Less

This was definitely the crown jewel of this cruise!!!!!! The Walled City and the lower city are cobblestone narrow roads full of restaurants, shops and artist show their works on the sideways and alleyways. The Citadel tours is worth the $10.00 fee. Starting in Mid June, tourist are able to watch the changing of the guard. There are two museums within the fort walls and if you are luck to take the 11:45 English speaking tour you will have the privilege to witness the noon gun be fired. The view from the Citadel walls of Quebec City, the harbor and river is breathtaking!!!!! After the Citadel, head out the walled city and over to the Parliament House see the the 24 life-size status of some of Canadian most famous citizens which stand along the walls and windows on the four stories and four walled building. When you walk back through the gates of the walled city you have to remained yourself your are in Canada and not Europe. We also visited the Open Market next to the harbor. It's a foodie's dream come true. Fresh meat, seafood, fruit, veggie, honey, maple syrup, cheese, bakeries, and spices that offer wonderful tastes, sights and smells for your senses. The Jewel of the walled city the Le Chateau Frontenac hotel which towers over the city of Quebec during the day and at night. Also be should to visit the Notre-Dame de Quebec Basilica-Cathedral it's a beautiful architectural vision. Three days is not enough to see all of Quebec city but you do get to see a lot of the lower section and walled section to make you would to come back again. The view from the ship's deck 12 departing from Quebec is a chance to see the Montmorency Falls (1 1/2 times higher than Niagara Falls) if you didn't get a chance to see it up close. Also to see the small towns and working farms along both sides of the river is a wonderful way to enjoy the sunset as you head back to sea. Read Less

In having a night stay over in Quebec City, we had a chance to see the city at night & a day to walk the upper city. Did not take a tour, but had a free shuttle from the Dawn to the a drop off point in the lower part of the city. Walked up to the upper city to see everything above. Then went to the tourist info center & found a city bus -$10 Canadian($16 US) round trip- to Montmorency Falls 40 minute bus ride which was a highlight of the day. Read Less

Great port for ability to take unguided walking trips from the ship. Great sights close-by. The Quebec Citadel is worth the walk (or you can take organized bus tour).

We walked the streets and toured the main area on our own. We decided to take a horse drawn carriage ride through this historic city which was well worth it.

Ah, Quebec City! European, yet with all the conveniences, bilingual citizens, transportation, currency exchange of any US large city. We ate lunch in an off-the-main track French Restaurant, and loved every bite of the crepes. Be sure to check out the art market; we like to buy a small oil or watercolor of each place we've toured in the world, and there were many talented artists from whom to pick. We only wish we could have spent more time in this gorgeous, historic city. Read Less

explored on our own for 3 days (had a extra day do to cancel stop at PEI) easy walking from pier to Old town. But town is on steep hill, is a tram you can take from lower level to upper level and back for $2 Canadian or $2.25 US. We walked up to see shops on road and took tram down. Lot of shops and history in town. Did have friends drive us around 1 day, to see sights out side of town. Read Less

Great port and amazing city. The city has steep hills but cabs are easy to catch and all take credit card and US currency. If possible, when staying overnight try to stay on a Friday or Saturday night as the city tends to shut down about 10:00pm on weekdays. A cab tour is also a great way to visit the falls and understand the city, highlights, and where you want to go back to visit when the tour is over. Read Less

Old town Quebec City is nice both daytime and nighttime, very small. Not enough time to drive to picturesque villages - hyped sites such as Ste. Anne de Beaupre, Montmorency falls, Beaupre canyon don't live up to expectations.

Saturday morning we woke to see Quebec City on the banks of the St Lawrence come into sight. It is overcast and breezy. Our string of picture-perfect port weather has reached its end. We exited the ship with my parents to have photos taken at the two photo ops. The first was great! A group of local ladies, dressed in period costume, were signing a welcome song and posing for photos. We had prebooked a “Grand walking tour” at 10:00 followed by a Zodiac river tour at 2:30 through Tours Voir Quebec, the highest rated tour company in Quebec City on tripadvisor. We caught the “Ecolobus” for $1.00/person (the cheapest tour in town!) to take us from the port up to near the Fontainebleau hotel, where the tourist information is across the square. Tours Voir Quebec shares a building with the TI office. The walking tour was very informational and we did see a lot. We went into three churches and walked many narrow streets. As advertised, the tour was 90% plus downhill. The tour ended at the lower end of the funicular in lower town. From there, we headed back to the Summit for lunch. DW isn’t feeling 100% especially after the constant going in and out of the increasingly windy and cool outdoors and the heated churches. She decides to take a nap and forgo the Zodiac tour. I headed out to the designated meeting place and found one other couple there. I knew eight had signed up for this tour. The others postponed until Sunday, hoping for better weather. We heard Sunday was supposed to be worse, so just the three of us went out with the captain and we head upriver, motoring past the Summit, a Canadian Coast Guard icebreaking ship, several old waterfront neighborhoods, and up to the bridge crossing the river that prevents ships such as the Summit from sailing further up the St. Lawrence. At that point, the river is just 200 feet across but very deep with strong currents. We turned around to find that it had begun raining (we were blissfully unaware of this as the rain had been hitting our backs and we were clothed in wetsuit type of coveralls). Heading back downriver we were now also facing into the wind! The ride back was not “Full of fun,” but we persevered and made it back in one piece. The 90 minute Zodiac tour took over two hours as we needed to move at a reduced speed due to the waves on the river. Our captain did take us very near to right under the bow of the Summit. It was an interesting view, to be sure, but I kept expecting a coast guard vessel or the Canadian version of homeland security to come swooping in to make sure we weren’t up to some mischief! Sunday morning the wind is still howling, but it’s not raining. We are off the ship by 8:00 and catch the Ecolobus to the farmer’s market (just two stops away). We wander the market and purchase some authentic Quebec Maple Syrup to take home. We want to take the Ecolobus back up the hill to explore some more and see the inside of the Fontainebleau hotel, but the bus just drives right past us as it is full. There are now four ships in port and passengers are awake! We cross the street and wait for an Ecolobus heading the other way. Plenty of space so we get on board and take a grand tour back to the Fontainebleau. When we get off the bus we are literally blasted by the wind. Being several hundred feet above the river, and with no wind-break, it is obvious the winds are gale force. We quickly take a few photos and find our way inside. The inside of the hotel is magnificent and several photos are taken. Next we head straight to the funicular for the ride down to the lower town. Here, among the buildings, the wind is not as ferocious. DW is kind of looking for a hooded sweatshirt, so we are in and out of the ships, but nothing appealing in the desired price range is discovered. We walk back to the ship meandering through the narrow streets trying to avoid being in the open along the waterfront. Four ships in port seem to have brought out many of the locals to take in the spectacle, despite the cool temps and wind. We are back on board by noon, and about 1:00 is begins to rain. By mid-afternoon the rain is a deluge. Read Less

Quebec City is a beautiful old,charming piece of North America & the only walled city. We stayed at Auberge St Pierre in lower town the night after our cruise & really loved it for it's ambiance, location (walking distance to the ship) & food. The desk clerk was very helpful too. We booked a tour there that took us to Montmorency Falls, a chocolate place, a bread & maple butter place on Ile d'Orleans, then a copper business that prepared us for the fine work the owner had done on Ste Anne de Beaupre Basilica. This was a lovely tour that cost about $50. The clerk at the hotel recommended a bistro which was Cafe le St Malo which was like being in Paris. The food & ambiance was very good. There's a lot more to do in Quebec City but this was not our first time there. Read Less
