Because this was the final destination and we were stopping for five days, we didn't feel a need to do a tour. We were lucky that on the Sunday (we arrived on the Saturday) they were offering free tours of the Citadel, that was really interesting, although very busy. We were there for the midday firing of the cannon which was extremely loud (nearly dropped my phone that I was filming it on haha). Quebec City is just beautiful, do a horse drawn carriage ride, its a great way to see the place and get all the information you need. We were so lucky that the colours were changing, and a trip to ile d'Orleans, great little island. Read Less

The 1st thing we saw was Montmorency Falls while we were still on the cruise ship (starboard side). The Summit was docked right under the Frontenac Hotel. We took the local bus and got off at the Parliament building, saw the Fountaine de Tourny, the St. Louis Gate in the Ramparts of Quebec City, Plains of Abraham & the Martello Tower, the Joan of Arc statue & gardens, walked down La Promenade des Governeurs stairs (easier than going up!) walked the Dufferin Terrace past the Frontenac Hotel. Took the Funnicular down to Petit Champlain to see the 3D frescos & then we had lunch a fresco & finally Place Royal before heading back to the ship. Read Less

We just visited a few locations on our own, a hop on hop off would have been the way to go.

Our cruise ship docked overnight in Quebec, just as well as you need this amount of time to look at everything that is on offer here. The port is over-shadowed by the beautiful Chateaux Frontenac, a beautiful castle that is now a 600 room hotel. We jumped on Quebec Tours red bus, which you can buy tickets from vendors on the street. Can take a bit of time to organise, so you can buy tickets online. We took the All loops 2 days pass and cruise for $CAN59.95. To pay separately for these tours would cost $CAN 82.95. It was well worth it. On the first day we did the Red line which gives you a double-decker bus with outside seating topside. This really gave you an excellent view of the city. It can be a bit chilly though, so ensure you have a warm jacket. This tour takes you past 12 of Quebec's top tourist sites and is fully narrated in 6 different languages with free ear buds to listen to the commentary. You can hop off at which ever site takes your fancy and rejoin the bus later. The tour takes approximately an hour and buses run every 30-45 minutes. When we completed this tour we then jumped on the Blue line which takes you to Montmorancy Falls. This is just a standard bus with no commentary. Here your can take a cable car to the top of the falls. From here you can walk the suspension bridge and walk down to the base of the falls or onto several different viewing platforms. The cable car cost was $CAN13 per person, quite an experience and great photo opportunities. We there for about an hour, but you can take as long as you like with buses returning approximately every 90 minutes. On our return to Quebec City, we walked around the streets and lane ways to discover a myriad of art stalls, coffee shops and fashion stores. The shop fronts were starting to be decorated for Fall and Halloween which gave the streets a very festive air like Christmas. There were many street performers to keep you entertained on your journey. On our way back to the cruise ship we top the Funicular. This is like an elevator that goes down the side of a cliff. Very interesting ride if you are not afraid of heights. The cost of this was about $CAN2.50 each way. The Funicular takes you down to the Old Port. WE were to catch the Black line ferry, but unfortunately they did not do the final cruise of the day at 4pm. So we waited until the next day. The Old Port is again a myriad of art galleries, souvenir shops, clothing shops and also the home of the most fantastic tasting maple syrup toffee. This is the first time I have tried it and I wish we could have it here in Australia. It is a very interesting place with lots of street art and religious grottoes. Many an hour and lots of cash could be spent here. On the second day in port, we headed up top via The Funicular to discover more of the City and to buy up those last minute mementos of this beautiful place. In the afternoon to top off our stay in Quebec we took the Black line, which is a ferry cruise on the St Lawrence River up to Mountmorancy Falls to take on view from another perspective. The cruise is narrated through out in both English and French by a tour guide dressed in period costume. The cruise was a great way to see the port and river as it was raining that day. The cruise does have food and beverages on board for purchase. We did miss out on the green line as this bus was not running to the stated timetables. This is something that you need to be wary of if you are undertaking this tour. Overall Quebec is a magical place. Read Less

To my surprise; this is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. Very walkable and the people are so friendly. We will go back.

If we had it to do over, we would have boarded the Big Red Bus and had dinner in the city.
