“Beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

Old Quebec if beautiful. You feel as though you are in Europe as you walk the streets. There are a lot of tourist shops, etc. But the experience here is amazing and what an interesting part of Canadian history.

“Picturesque and full of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Old Quebec is a picturesque place, nice and full of history. There are Canadian landmarks here like Chateau Frontenac. Views from the Upper Town are incredible. Is like a small piece of Europe in the middle of America.

It is also a very good place for long walks, specially the Terrasse Dufferin area, Cote de la Fabrique and Rue St-Jean. These two streets are full of stores and restaurants.

“Great City, Great People!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Everyone was so nice. My french language skills are poor at best but everyone was so helpful. An important historical stop for anyone interested in the foundations of Canada.

“Definitely a great place to walk around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Just like I said above in the title, it is a good place to 'walk around'. Driving here can and will be HORRENDOUS. Not to say that it can't be done but it is difficult and also, why drive around here? It's a gorgeous place that you need to take in SLOWLLLLLLY on foot.

Lots and LOTSSSSSSSS of picturesque areas. You won't run out of things to photograph. The quaint little shops and restaurants are amazing. Hardly a boring moment at all!

The view of the river is SPECTACULAR!

GO! GO! GO!
