  • A great way to begin your visit to beautiful Quebec City. The skyline looking down towards the St. Lawrence river and the Old City is just spectacular!
  • Overall, the Quebec City skyline is just not that beautiful. Add to that this building's horrendous look, and you will find yourself having a very middling experience. The actual facilities and services of the building, however, are perfectly fine.
  • It is a perfect place to have bird eye view of old Quebec. Historical photos, interesting videos are so attractive.
  • 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!
