What a gorgeous city from top to bottom. There are so many wonderful cafes and shops to see as soon as you get off the ship. We did not do any excursions but fellow passengers said the bike trip to the waterfall was excellent.

Quebec City was our favorite port and probably one of the nicest places we have ever visited. We walked from the ship to the quaint town, got caught in a brief downpour, and then took the funiculaire up the hill for even more shopping and a break for lunch! No need for a tour hereit's just too beautiful for words. There was even a harpist playing music along one of the main shopping streetsalong with a variety of other street performers and entertainers. Read Less

Beautiful city! We walked uphill to the Artillery Park Heritage Site. This is one of Quebec's National Park and Historic Sites. We paid $10 for our family to visit which included reenactments/period costumes on sight. We ate fresh baked bread from an outside brick oven. Tours were given in both English and French. What a nice surprise! We would definitely like to go back. Read Less

This city is an architectural gem. The ship docks right in the heart of the old city. We did not do any of the standard tours, but we did walk a lot. There is a ton to do and see, but if you want something very close to the ship, we'd recommend the Musee de la Civilization -- it's a wonderful museum with presentations in English as well as French.

Belle, belle Quebec! We had an overnight here and so had nearly full 2 days to explore. We had visited Quebec previously, so had prebooked a car from Budget in the old upper town which we drove out to Ile d'Orleans. Here we really saw the full autumn colours that we had missed on our journey up the New England coast, because of the warm autumn weather. Ile d'Orleans is well worth a visit, as it turns from very urban near the bridge across the St Lawrence river, where people commute to Quebec city, to a real rural environment where they grow wine grapes, potatoes, strawberries, apples for cider, as well as all sorts of vegetables, corn, pumpkins. We stopped at La Boulang about 2/3 of the way around the southern part of the island and had a wonderful cake and coffee. We also visited a Sugar Shack where they sell Maple Syrup products. Found a wonderful restaurant in Basse Ville (lower city) called Le Lapin, (The Rabbit), 52 Rue du Petit-Champlain, where they cook and serve rabbit in all sorts of ways. We had rabbit cassoulet and a rabbit pie, both stunning. Then maple syrup creme brulee for dessert with calvados, superbe. A word or warning for driving in Quebec on Sundays. It is a one way system that is already confusing, but on Sundays they close a lot of streets for pedestrian access, making driving very difficult. Don't use a car unless you want to visit outside the city and ask about road closures and the best way to get back to the Car hire place after you have finished driving. Read Less

I felt like I was transported to Europe. Beautiful old building and wonderful history. I wish I had booked a tour here; but we walked both the Upper Town and the Lower Town in the old part of Quebec City. Just gorgeous.

Both the lower town and the upper town are great for walking around. Make sure to dine out in some pretty authentic French restaurants.

Loved Quebec. We just walked around. We would have kicked ourselves if we had taken a tour or rented a car. It's perfect on foot if you are able to walk without trouble.

Embarkation was very smooth and well organized. 30 minute trip to ship; arrived about 3:30 and had about an 30 minute wait to get on the ship. Baggage arrived at 7:00 pm. We spent the night on the ship in Quebec and it was right across from shopping and restaurants. The port is the gem of this voyage so take advantage of it. We took the Quebec Countryside Tour excursion and it was well worth it. A visit to Montmorency Falls for cake and tea, a visit to the Sugar Shack and New Orleans island was great. Read Less
