Get to know Québec City and its top attractions on this guided sightseeing tour from Montreal. The full-day adventure begins with hotel pickup in downtown Montreal. Climb aboard a comfortable motor coach and enjoy the 2.5-hour journey to Québec City, with commentary from your guide along the way.
Explore Old Québec, the historic heart of French Canada and the capital of the province of Québec, with its narrow streets, stone buildings and European feel. Learn about the city's history and culture while rolling past attractions like the Fortifications of Québec, Citadelle of Québec, Notre-Dame-des-Victoires Church and many more.
Visit Place Royale, often referred to as the birthplace of French America, and the beautiful Plains of Abraham, where the famous Battle of Québec between the French and English armies took place in the Seven Years’ War in 1759. Also, enjoy views of picturesque Place d'Armes and take photos of the towering Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, Canada’s most-beloved hotel.
Then follow Avenue Royale through the traditional villages and farms of the Beaupre Coast, approximately 15 minutes north of Québec City to visit Montmorency Falls, an 83-meter-high waterfall on the Montmorency River (it’s 30 meters higher than Niagara Falls).
After the tour, there will be ample time to explore Old Québec at leisure. If you're visiting between May and October, upgrade your ticket to include a 1.5-hour cruise along the St Lawrence River.
The tour ends with a return trip to Montreal and hotel drop-off.
The Quebec City tour guideRocky? was excellent! He covered what we needed to see/do for a day trip. Trip was well worth it. Was in Quebec city for the winter carnival over 40 years ago. It was great to see the city in its Fall splendour.
Great trip and a must city to visit. We liked our tour guide Katie who referenced in her narratives things she had learned from people on the bus making it fun. She provided just a right amount of information: not overwhelming and easy to remember.
Amazing trip. Our tour guide Katia was very knowledgeable of the history and made everyone feel welcomed. Katia showed us so many interesting places and recommended how we should use the free time we had. Since we did not do the cruise we had so much more time to explore the city and have an authentic lunch. Would recommend this tour very highly.
This day trip exceeded our expectations! The driver was highly skilled, the tour guide when we reached Quebec City was so personable and knowledgeable! We enjoyed the cruise and the opportunity for free time! It was a tremendous value for the money and time spent!
Good trip and excellet turism guides
Had a. terrific experience. Our guide was over the top knowledgeable in history. I could spend days discussing history with her and never get bored. Our driver was first rate. Coul not ask for a better one day trip. Thanks
Great trip but a very long day. Andre was our guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. Good tips and a great tour with him. I didn't realize how beautiful Quebec City was until we visited. It was a great day
Fantastic trip with really friendly and professional guides. A long drive for a few hours but well worth it. Quebec is truly beautiful with loads of history and the people are friendly and helpful, even if you don't speak French. The tour company is excellent I've recently had a very bad experience with another company - see my Ottawa review and this has restored my faith in people. It would be difficult to see how this trip could be improved upon.
loved quebec and the falls wish had more time there. plan to go again
Our driver, Andre and our guide Roch were both excellent!
Quebec City is so beautiful and rich with history, we enjoyed a great day.
