This was definitely the crown jewel of this cruise!!!!!! The Walled City and the lower city are cobblestone narrow roads full of restaurants, shops and artist show their works on the sideways and alleyways. The Citadel tours is worth the $10.00 fee. Starting in Mid June, tourist are able to watch the changing of the guard. There are two museums within the fort walls and if you are luck to take the 11:45 English speaking tour you will have the privilege to witness the noon gun be fired. The view from the Citadel walls of Quebec City, the harbor and river is breathtaking!!!!! After the Citadel, head out the walled city and over to the Parliament House see the the 24 life-size status of some of Canadian most famous citizens which stand along the walls and windows on the four stories and four walled building. When you walk back through the gates of the walled city you have to remained yourself your are in Canada and not Europe. We also visited the Open Market next to the harbor. It's a foodie's dream come true. Fresh meat, seafood, fruit, veggie, honey, maple syrup, cheese, bakeries, and spices that offer wonderful tastes, sights and smells for your senses. The Jewel of the walled city the Le Chateau Frontenac hotel which towers over the city of Quebec during the day and at night. Also be should to visit the Notre-Dame de Quebec Basilica-Cathedral it's a beautiful architectural vision. Three days is not enough to see all of Quebec city but you do get to see a lot of the lower section and walled section to make you would to come back again. The view from the ship's deck 12 departing from Quebec is a chance to see the Montmorency Falls (1 1/2 times higher than Niagara Falls) if you didn't get a chance to see it up close. Also to see the small towns and working farms along both sides of the river is a wonderful way to enjoy the sunset as you head back to sea. Read Less

Old town Quebec City is nice both daytime and nighttime, very small. Not enough time to drive to picturesque villages - hyped sites such as Ste. Anne de Beaupre, Montmorency falls, Beaupre canyon don't live up to expectations.

Excellent port of call. Very near the town, with a walkway through to the old town and old port, with a wonderful farmers market. We took the funicular up to the Citadel and the Heights of Abraham, which is now a beautiful park. We had a guided tour of the Citadel which was compulsory because it is a working garrison. It only cost four Canadian dollars. The old town is full of very expensive shops, but we had dinner in a restaurant in Sous le Fort, which was very French and lively. Day 2 we went on an excursion to Montmorency Falls and the Sugar Shack, where we tasted maple syrup poured onto 'snow' and made into toffee. Quebec is like France, but the people are kind and appreciate you speaking French, so it is like France only more welcoming. I would go here again. Read Less

We were not moored at the cruise ship terminal. We were pier 30. I thought it was because the other terminal was being worked on, wellllll... I was wrong. There was another ship that was moored there later. Extremely unhappy about the walk thru commerical port and marina area to get anywhere. Even at 8pm it was kind of creepy to walk thru. Shuttles should be set up if cruiselines and the city expect people to enjoy the port. If you want Montmorency Falls and are moored at #30, go over to the VIA Rail station and take the 800 bus.

I walked around the old town and up to the citadel. There was some graffiti scrawled in French on a Boer War memorial that basically said ‘go home English colonisers’ I thought the ignorance and hypocrisy of that was breath-taking.

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

Booked a hotel near the dock so we would be close to the ship, ship moved on the other side of town. Seeing and of Quebec was near impossible.

Quebec is gorgeous, but what a tourist trap! Prices way too high; poor exchange rates and not particularly friendly people. The city is a photographer's urban dream. We had very chilly (45 degree) weather with a cold wind, which forced us back to the ship earlier than we had planned on. We had had an enjoyable previous visit 25 years before in the middle of June and had only pleasant memories of the place. We are Floridians and feel the cold which clouded (no pun intended) our experience. Read Less

Excellent port - love the overnight visit. Day 1 Old City and Day 2 rented a car to visit St Anne's Basilica and the Falls. The basilica should be a bucket list item. It is amazing.
