Charming city, so amazing to be in North America but feel like you are in Europe. Very nice walk--if quite steep!--from the ship straight into the city. I suggest taking the funicular (glass tram) UP the hill and walk back down unless your primary goal is better fitness. Even with the funicular, expect some hilly walking if you tour this city by foot. We spent no money (except a few dollars for the funicular) but saw many interesting things. Walking on the old city walls was a highlight for us, as well as the many beautiful works of art in public spaces. It was a hot day, and my children enjoyed splashing in a fountain with local families. Read Less

Quebec is beautiful and very accessible to the port. We walked, we took the bus, we tried to take the subway. Beautiful churches, interesting Citadelle experience--please take the road to the entry of the Citadelle and don't climb the embankments like we did! Exhausting. Chateau Frontenac was disappointing. It is an active hotel, so there are many limits to your roaming. The old town square is quaint and historical, obviously, with churches, stores, memorials, murals, shops. Unfortunately, it was a record heat day when we were there and that curtailed our outdoor activities somewhat. Read Less

We got out early in the morning and were able to get fantastic pictures before the streets became more crowded. Although we didn't book an excursion from HAL, we took a horse and buggy ride. They have an established price of C$80 for 45 minutes. It seems high, but we knew we wouldn't be doing too many excursions during the cruise, and we enjoyed every minute of it, esp. since the weather was beautiful. You have to go inside the Frontenac Hotel even if just to see it. Quebec is much smaller than I expected and the old town can be covered by foot if one is an avid walker. Oh, and it absolutely oozes charm. Read Less

We were here for two day. The first day was a rainout for walking about the city. We did our walking on the second day and enjoyed it.

Quebec is gorgeous, but what a tourist trap! Prices way too high; poor exchange rates and not particularly friendly people. The city is a photographer's urban dream. We had very chilly (45 degree) weather with a cold wind, which forced us back to the ship earlier than we had planned on. We had had an enjoyable previous visit 25 years before in the middle of June and had only pleasant memories of the place. We are Floridians and feel the cold which clouded (no pun intended) our experience. Read Less

Undoubtedly the most European city in North America, Quebec City is an absolute treasure of colonial splendor and beauty. Our two nights here at the Htel Le Germain-Dominion preceding the cruise provided many opportunities to tour and investigate the charms of this ancient city. The hotel's proximity to the Cruise Terminal was also a tremendous "plus," with only a block to drag our luggage. Anyone who has yet not visited Quebec City has missed an experience of lifetime.

To save time & energy, we took a taxi from the port to the Citadelle and after touring that, walked back through the upper and lower towns, which worked out very well, although we walked rather fast as the wind was icy cold. But we had time to poke into shops, churches, the Fontenac Hotel & the Muse de la Civilization, where the exhibit about the First Nations was especially interesting, as well as the temporary exhibit about Rome.

We only spent two days there, which was not enough. There is so much to see. It is like a town in Europe. We were there in mid October and it was very cold and windy, so you need to dress warm.

Had to buy a 2 day bus shuttle pass for $12.00 to center of city because we were docked so far away. First day I walked and climbed steps to Upper Town. Toured the fort and Chateau Frontenac-both very interesting. Also went in one church. Also toured the French-American museum-very interesting. Second day toured the Interpretative Center Museum,and the Museum of Civilization-both very interesting. Place Royale was just interesting. Read Less

The old walled city of Quebec is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it is easy to understand why! The city is very clean, safe, and walkable, and the buildings are historic and stunningly beautiful! There is a very active arts scene and unique purchases to be made everywhere! Tours of the surrounding country side take one to spectacular locations within minutes of the city. One can enjoy over 400 years of French history in a day of walking! Quebec City rates as one of my favorite stops of any cruise - any where! Read Less

If you have time to go the the old walled city and the waterfall across from Orleans Island, do both. If time is limited, go to the Old Walled City adjacent to the Plains of Abraham and on the north bank of the river. There is plenty to see and do there. Excellent photo opportunities. Next Port was Saint John, New Brunswick. Rent a car and drive to St. Martin or go on a whale watch. Read Less

Loved this little city! Quaint to walk and shop. Don't wear high heels, the streets are cobbled.

Really liked Quebec. We didn't have very good weather there but even so we could easily have spent more time there.Should also mention that going along the North Atlantic coast and the St Lawrence river to get to Quebec was lovely, in spite of pretty awful weather. We saw whales spouting, and lots of seals, and sea birds. Read Less

This was our fourth time in Quebec City. This is an overnight stop. We did not get off the ship the first day. The second day we got off and took the Funicular up to the new part of town and walked up to Joan of Arc Park, which is all decorated for Halloween. It's part of the Plains of Abraham. We love walking around there. We walked back down via the Governor's Promenade walkway. Read Less

Do not pass up the opportunity to stay an extra day or two in Quebec. It is very easy to walk around the old city. Lot's of great restaurants there - never heard anyone complain about any of them.

Certainly one of the most scenic citiies in North America. Historic areas in town, Chateau Frontenac, St. Anne de Beaupre chruch, Montmorency Falls, etc. A full day in town barely scratches the surface.
