The Old City is like an open-air museum, and the best way to explore it is on foot with a local guide. A variety of excursions are also available to take you easily and comfortably beyond the historic district to other local attractions such as Montmorency Falls, Île d’Orléans, Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine, Ice Hotel, whale watching, and more.

Let us suggest 3 different ways to explore Québec City and Area:

Guided Walking Tours and Theme Tours 

All kinds of guided tours are available, whether you prefer classic, themed, or personalized outings.

River Cruises and Boat Tours

One thing’s for sure—the view of Québec City from the St. Lawrence River is spectacular in any season!  A variety of thematic excursions depart from the Old Port in summer and fall. Colliding chunks of ice add an extra magic to winter ferry crossings.
