This tour is tailor-made to discover the picturesque Island of Orleans and "Côte de Beaupré", the spectacular Montmorency Fall, much higher than Niagara Falls, and the reknown Shrine Basilica of Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré.
At the Citadel, in the heart of the Fortifications of Quebec City, you will attend the traditional ceremony of Changing of the Guard featuring soldiers decked out in their scarlet red regimental dress and bearskin cap, and later, at "Le Musée du Fort", to a sound and light show of the famous Battle of the Plains of Abraham.
During our tour, you'll also admire the French and British architectural treasures of the Old Quebec, including its imposing cathedrals and, of course, the iconic Château Frontenac which overlooks the St. Lawrence River on Dufferin Terrace.
