Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Old Quebec (Vieux Québec) is split into Upper and Lower Town, divided from Quebec City by the only remaining fortified city walls north of Mexico. Inside the UNESCO World Heritage site, history is both in plain sight and along hidden streets. Your guide shows you where to find it in Lower Town.

What You Can Expect

Quebec Lower Town Historical Bike Tour

Learn about Quebec's history as you pedal around Lower Town

Meet and greet the tour guide and group at a bike shop in Old Québec City’s Lower Town district. After getting fitted for a bike and helmet, there will be a brief safety orientation before beginning the 2.5-hour ride around and through Lower Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
This relaxing ride covers eight miles (13 kilometers) on mostly bike-friendly, flat terrain.

Pedal along the waterfront to the revitalized Old Port and nearby Musée de la Civilisation (Museum of Civilization), the most popular museum in Québec City. Then continue to Place-Royale, the first permanent French settlement in North America. 

Far from the hustle of the large shopping centers is Quartier Petit Champlain, with its many stone building boutiques, cafés and restaurants along cobblestone streets. From there, quaint urban parks lead the way to the banks of the Saint-Charles River and the Cartier-Brébeuf National Historic Site, a beautiful city park on the river’s north shore.

It was an amazing way to see Quebec City. Our guides were very knowledgeable and kept us safe. I went with my wife, and 2 daughters ages 14 and 10. We all loved it. The course was relatively flat and easy to navigate. I would highly recommend it.

We had a fabulous time on this tour! The guide was excellent and we learned an incredible amount about Quebec City during our 3 hour ride. My son and I agree that this is the very best way to learn about -- and get you bearings on the layout of the city.

This was our favorite tour of the trip. The guide knew his history which I really appreciated. Beautiful bike paths. The scenery was beautiful and it was nice to see more than just the center of the city. If I were to go back I would do it again and maybe even rent bikes for subsequent days. The parks were beautiful.
