Ideal Shore excursion private tour

The Very Best way to visit Quebec and countryside on a short stay is this excellent full day tour offering the historic city it is with so much to see and plenty of photos to take. Learn how in the countryside settlers established in difficult climate and where it became a main area supplying goods to the colony. The Seigneurial system of the French expanded on the North shore Beaupré Coast as well as on to Ile d'Orléans, 2 major areas we will visit. All of this to see during the tour with a pause for lunch on a historic property with quality menu and service. Plenty of interest in a little time at a comfortable pace that will surely want you to come visit Quebec again for more.


The tour begins where pick up is determined and will start with the city portion of the tour with a visit in the pedestrian area of New France establishment "Petit Champlain". The city portion also includes the Château Frontenac, Dufferin Terrace, Fortifications, The Citadelle, The Plains of Abraham, Parliament Hill, St. Jean street and more. We are driving here around the most interesting sites including stops where desired. Lunch will be determined with your choice of options I will suggest. More probably within the countryside portion for the afternoon. The countryside portion involves the beautiful Island of Orleans, Montmorency Falls, A unique Copper museum, Ste. Anne Basilica and more. So you can expect the Best on this tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Danny G was a terrific guide for our group of ten adults. He worked with us to design a tour that included pick-up and delivery back to our vacation rental home and stops that were of top interest to our group. Danny was born and raised in Quebec City so he knows the city and the region very well. Several members of our group are from Vermont and have spent time in Quebec, but they all agreed that they learned a lot from Danny. Our thanks for a very interesting day!
