  • Excellent views of the city from all sides. Very knowledgeable staff on hand to answer questions
  • This is one of the tallest buildings in Quebec City and probably the best place to see the city from above, including historic Old City and the Saint Lawrence River. Highly recommended for cityscape fanatics like me!
