A 5.5-Hour tour of Historic City, Fall, Shrine, Island and Amerindian Reservation

As soon as we leave the cruise terminal, you will fall under the charm of Old Québec, the only fortified city in North America designated as a"UNESCO World Heritage City". You'll see the buildings, cathedrals and houses lining its parks and narrow streets and admire magnificent works of art, frescoes and monuments.
This tour is tailor-made to discover the scenery of the Great Quebec City region. Island of Orleans, the harvest of Quebec, the picturesque "Côte de Beaupré" with its old houses, street chapels and root cellars, the spectacular Montmorency Fall, much higher than Niagara Falls and the impressive Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine Basilica

Finally, we'll visit an attraction that is often forgotten in traditional tourist tours, the Huron-Wendat reservation where you'll discover the history, the culture and the lifestyle of Hurons of the past and of today.

A tour especially designed for those who do not want to miss anything from each of the cruise liner stopovers.
