A List of the Top 10 Quebec City Tours

From guided walking tours to themed tours, to tours done by helicopters, bus and train. Here is a list of the best tours in the city (although not in any particular order, but of course we like to believe we’re number 1)!

10. Fortifications of Quebec

The Fortificaitons of Quebec offer tours on Artillery Park, a historical national site. In 1959 it was recognized by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada as having significant military installations, which were part of the city’s defense system. Come and discover its stories and amazing architectural work.

9. Le Train du Massif de Charlevoix

Despite the fact that this isn’t a classical, conventional tour, it is a great way to see the amazing scenery of the city. The train runs along the St. Lawrence river from Quebec City to Malbaie. During this ride you can sit back and relax as you admire scenic views and savor a meal from foods strictly prepared and grown in Charlevoix.

4. Ghost Tours of Quebec

This is a costumed tour that begins only once the sun has set. The excursion is all about nightly storytelling and the darker side of Quebec’s history. The tour is great all year round, but exceptional in the month of October. The guides are interesting and exciting, however it is not recommended for small children, due to its scary content. (Make sure to bring good walking shoes).
