Learn all about Québec City’s history and culture, while visiting landmarks including the Fortifications of Québec, the Plains of Abraham, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac and the National Assembly. But don’t stop there: this tour takes you outside the walls for an experience of surrounding neighbourhoods.

For a spectacular finish, take the river shuttle back to Québec City.
