Old Quebec City is just that; old. The building's dates range from French regime 1600s to British regime 1800-1880s. Fascinating. The Funicular elevator between Upper and Lower town is fun, but cramped and sweaty on a hot day. It's the only functioning funicular in North America.

Lovely old town, but be prepared to do the mountain goat hills. The old town is picturesque, be prepared for relatively high prices, languages are French and English, with a us continental twang But a nice friendly folk. If it weren't so far from home I'd return next month

I could review all the individual places, however, all of Quebec City gives the overall feeling of old world experience where people 400 hundred years ago settled and build their city. So much to do and see. We were there 3 days and that was not enough time, Be prepared to walk - this is a walking city and if... More

Our last visit to Old Québec goes quite a while back. What a pleasurable surprise to notice all the improvements and the enhanced focus placed on the history of the town, the place where North America begun. Take your time stroll in all the little streets and make sure to stop by the tourists information kiosk and load up on... More

It reminds me of New Orleans, BUT it is clean, safe, cool, and low humidity. The food is much more French and varied that New Orleans. The people were very friendly showing that Canadian niceness overcomes French rudeness :-) (Joking). The people appeared to be less ethnically diverse than New Orleans. French is the first language, but English is spoken... More

We drove all the way from Detroit, MI for a good time off and to a place with a different feel than what we see in US. This place did not let me down. It has a European feel because of the narrow streets, small blocks and the buildings/shops. City is clean and local people are friendly . This city... More

My wife and I loved the idea of Quebec City going to the Old city because it was like going to Europe but in our time zone. This Ville Quebec has so much going for it. It is very walkable, historic and friendly. The locals are great, the food is tasty and there is more than enough to see and... More

Visiting Old Quebec is a little like visiting Europe in North America. All the buildings are really old, many French restaurants mixed with French Canadian restaurants - do not confuse the two cuisines - . Walking there, even with kids, is great. Many things to see, to do, and lots to eat and drink.

Lots of art galleries, ice cream shops, patios of restaurants and the views are stunning. We enjoyed sitting on a bench and enjoyed being surrounded by old buildings full of character.
