Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your tour begins with a narrated walk to Place Royale via Place de Paris and rue Saint-Pierre.
Place Royale is a handsomely restored square in the heart of Lower Town boasting 17th and 18th-century stone architecture. The site of Samuel de Champlain's first settlement, the square is home to Notre Dame des Victoires, one of the oldest stone church still standing in North America. Next you'll make your way to Petit Champlain Street, a pedestrian-only street adjacent to the Place Royale featuring boutiques, shops, cafés and restaurants housed in 17th and 18th century buildings.

You'll hop aboard the Funicular Railroad for a short ride to the historic, walled Upper Town. You'll walk through three centuries of history, including Place d'Armes, one of the most important intersections in the old city, filled with café-goers, street performers and musicians. You'll also stroll through Dufferin Terrace, a landscaped promenade that offers panoramic views of the St. Lawrence River, Ile d'Orleans and the Laurentian Mountains. Also on your itinerary is Place de l'Hôtel de Ville and Ursuline Convent, the oldest institution of learning for women in North America, as well as the Seminary of Québec and the Old English Walls. Your tour concludes with your return to Lower Town and the pier. If you prefer, you can remain in town to shop.
