7-hour tour to discover Old Quebec, Montmorency Fall, Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine and Island of Orleans


As soon as we leave the cruise terminal, you will fall under the charm of Old Québec, which is designated as a "UNESCO World Heritage City". You will discover the rich religious and military heritage of the only fortified city in North America. You will notice the French and British architectural influence on the buildings and houses lining its parks and narrow streets.
Finally, you will admire magnificent works of art, frescoes and monuments that adorn Old Québec and Plains of Abraham.

This tour is also tailor-made to discover the picturesque Island of Orleans and "Côte de Beaupré", the spectacular Montmorency Fall, much higher than Niagara Falls, and the renowned Shrine Basilica of Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré.

Three visits are also planned throughout the tour for different tastings of local products: cider, wines, cheeses, chocolate, maple products: it's your choice!

Sure, you'll be delighted by the sites and the breathtaking scenery that's offered by the Quebec City Area.

A Recent Review of this tour

Claude Beauchamp is without exception an excellent tour guide. His knowledge of Quebec City is enhanced by his previous career working for the department of tourism. He speaks English very comfortably and yet my wife enjoyed speaking some French when possible. We were given a broad overview of Quebec City starting with the plains of Abraham, touring The Citadel, driving out to visit The island, seeing The Falls, returning to the Old City. We saw it all. If I could rate Claude higher than 5 stars I would.
