  • This is one of the best tour of Quebec, an open area with a beautiful view to the river that bisects the city. In addition, the hotel's dufferin, which is very nice too.

  • Place of Quebec! In winter, enjoy the slide back to childhood, make a stop to taste of maple taffy and warm up in a coffee shop. In summer, enjoy the view on the city and the river and the Château Frontenac and climb the steps that lead to the plains of Abraham. I go back every year and never I never tire of! It's so beautiful!

  • Nice walk on the wooden deck of Quebec City. Must-if you are visiting the city. Often entertained by musicians and street performers. In summer, nice view on the St-Lawrence River.
