Quebec City Waterfront

While docked at the Port of Québec, begin this half-day in the country with a Port of Québec pickup, or meet the guide and the rest of the tour group at the Musée de la civilisation (Museum of Civilization), located in historic Old Québec near the cruise ship pier by the Saint Lawrence River.

Follow Avenue Royale through the traditional villages and farms of the Beaupre Coast, approximately 15 minutes north of Quebec City. Visit Montmorency Falls, an 83-meter-high waterfall on the Montmorency River (it’s 30 meters higher than Niagara Falls), and the legendary Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, where many a miracle has occurred.

Additional stops include the Chocolaterie de l'Ile d'Orléans, with 24 flavors of ice cream during the summer season and a wide variety of chocolates made from only the finest ingredients imported from Belgium. At the Cuivres D'Art Albert Gilles, learn about the art of embossing copper, visit two museums and stop by the gift shop for a souvenir. Finally, at the Chez Marie bread oven, discover a traditional bakery where fresh bread is made in 150-year-old outdoor ovens.

Well worth it and a must see. The Falls was spectacular and Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre was a church you don't want to miss. Next to the Vatican, this one is quite amazing.

It was a great tour. Besides Montmorency Falls and Ste-Anne Cathedral which was one of the most awesome we have seen anywhere they took us on a tour of Orleans Island, stopped at a candy/ice cream store and then a most remarkable bakery. Thank you so much.

It was a very organized trip. I like that the bus was small and made the group easy to manage. The bus driver,tour guide, was great. Very informative about the area and also shared stories of growing up in area.
It was a good day even with the ugly weather, which of course is anyone's fault. Would recommended this trip.
