We love Old Quebec City, it's perfect for walking around shopping and eating. That's really all we do when we're there. The shops are great, there's a perfect mix between small, local shops and chain boutiques. In the lower city is where you'll find a lot of art, mostly local. There are always street entertainers, who rotate their time throughout... More

Old Quebec is a unique experience in North America. The big hotels are just outside of the Old (walled) City. Be prepared to walk on cobblestones !

Delightful old Quebec is much like visiting Europe although it is a lot easier to get to from North American cities. Lots to see and do. Good place to learn about the settlement of Canada by the French. Lots of hotels and good restaurants. The Fairmont Chateau Frontenac is the most visible landmark from all parts of town. Nice place... More

Stayed in the old city for three nights, found plenty to do even with chilly temperatures. Excellent restaurants to choose from. Very pretty with Christmas decorations and a little snow.

We went to the upper and lower part of Old Quebec. Definitely has a European feel to it and it was very clean. It was so pretty and historic, definitely worth a visit. There`s so much to see and there`s lots of quaint shops and cafes. You can just spend the day strolling around. We had no problems with communication... More

We spent two nights in this interesting old town. It is very easy to walk, look in the stores, taste various foods as you wander. This city has a charm about it that will bring you back time and again.

My wife and I decided to take a 4 day escape to Quebec City. We had a great time learning the history of QC via the 2 hour bus tour and then the one hour tour of The Citadelle. Everyone we met was super pleasant even though my 2 years of high school French (50 years ago) was of little... More

When I had been there, the weather was perfect! I could feel that I were in a place similar to France. This is a very beautiful and lovely city.

I had only one night to take a walk through the wall gates into the city. It all decorated up for Christmas, well kept buildings, clean and felt safe walking around. The parks on the edge of the city looked like a great place to hang out during summer months.
