Getting To Know Quebec City

Quebec City is the only walled community in North America and is deeply engaged in preserving its vibrant history and unique place in Canadian culture. Situated on the St. Lawrence River, Quebec became a strategic port for trade in timber and furs. It is the Provincial Capital and the seat of the only Francophone government in North America.

Our All-Inclusive Visit

In the morning, our coaches depart for the Plains of Abraham, at the point where the battle between the invading English forces and the defenders took place as they stormed the upper city and captured the town. Then it’s onwards to pretty Place Royale in the lower-town, which in 1759 was bombarded from across the river when fire ships were dispatched towards the port. We then drive out of Quebec City to see the majestic Montmorency Falls, during which you will be able to take a cable car ride to the top, for magnificent views across to the Ile d’Orléans. In the afternoon guests are encouraged to stroll out of the port at their leisure to explore the nearby lower town and visit the Petit Champlain, or take the funicular railway to the Château Frontenac for a stroll along the magnificent Dufferin Terrace.

More About Quebec City…

The name “Quebec” most likely has its origins in the Algonquian world for “narrowing of the river.”
