  • Very beautiful, helpful staff who actually care, and the tour was a very informative experience (although a bit bland). The clock tower tour had a magnificent view and was well worth the 30-minute wait for admission tickets (which were free)
  • We went there around 10 a.m. for booking english tour for free. 12:00 tour was the earliest one. Good place to visit for tourists. For the time being construction, we entered temporary entrance. For the admission, ID required and we went through security check.
  • Google says this place closes at 2:00p, but I just came back from a 2:15p English tour. It was comprehensive. Learned and got bored. This place needs a major renovation. It is coming apart and it is not very impressive. But it was a good way to learn about French Canadá (according to South Park, it's the best Canadá).
  • I went to an English guided tour on Nov 3 15:15. The staff is very nice, very knowledgeable. Thanks very much!!!
  • This is the great place to visit in Quebec City. It is not only full of history of Quebec but also the birth of Canada as the Province of Lower Canada. There are French and English tour and it is free. Highly recommended.

Where to stay in Quebec City

Most accommodations cluster on the west side of the St. Lawrence River, with the city's split-level old town offering the widest range of options and best access to top attractions. Stay in the upper town to be close to the castle and enjoy views over the river. What the lower town lacks in panoramas, it makes up for in historic charm and access to riverside cafes and restaurants. If you want a less-touristy experience, consider the up-and-coming neighborhood of St. Roch, whose cafes, bars, restaurants, and artistic spaces make it an alternative traveler's paradise.
