Add To Plan

In addition to a delightful historical tour of Quebec City, you will venture into the unspoiled countryside to a thundering waterfall that's 90 feet higher than Niagara Falls.

Commencing from the pier, you will drive directly to Place-Royale, a lovely square on the site of the original settlement. Here, you'll receive a fascinating overview of the founding of the city while standing in the shadow of Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, the continent's oldest Catholic church. Then, it's on to Dufferin Terrace, where Samuel de Champlain built his fort in 1620, and Château Frontenac, a castle-like hotel that has been an icon since opening in 1893. You'll discover even more about the history of Quebec City at these two historic sites and enjoy some brief free time to browse on your own.

Next, it's on to Cap Diamant, the promontory that overlooks the Plains of Abraham, where the French and British clashed in battle numerous times. After stopping for photos and to enjoy sweeping views of the St. Lawrence River and Laurentian Mountains, you will head for Montmorency Falls, which thunder down 275 feet into the river. Explorer Samuel de Champlain named the falls for his patron, the Duke of Montmorency, and it's a memorable tribute as they are higher than Niagara Falls. After a 30-minute stop to capture some unforgettable photos, you will re-board your coach and travel back to the pier in Quebec City where your tour concludes.

Please note: This tour is primarily panoramic in nature and walking is mainly at the guests' discretion during the stops. The surfaces to negotiate are generally flat in nature. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Scooters under 60 lbs. are permitted. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Rain resistant layered clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. The tour sequence may vary.
