I checked many reviews before deciding on Old Quebec. I was planning a 25th wedding anniversary for my wife. We only had the weekend. We luckily.chose Quebec City. The pictures of old Quebec in the winter are right-it is magical especially if theres snow which just came the day before we arrived. German Village in the middle of Old Quebec... More

Took the Funicular to Old Quebec. Streets lined with shops and restaurants. Many interesting sightseeing opportunities. Decorated for Christmas and stunning. A few "street performers". Two different groups singing Christmas Carols, in French! Absolutely amazing. Very old world!

Quebec City is the most gorgeous city I've ever visited in all of Canada. It really does have something for everyone! Old Quebec has so much history! Just don't try driving around there. If you're lucky enough to get a hotel close by walk over. The old churches and buildings are well worth it. In the summer they have gorgeous... More

This is one of the nicest cities I have visited. It has a wonderful French feel and is loaded with interesting buildings, hotels, stores. Even the railway station is unique. We will return soon.

We love Old Quebec City, it's perfect for walking around shopping and eating. That's really all we do when we're there. The shops are great, there's a perfect mix between small, local shops and chain boutiques. In the lower city is where you'll find a lot of art, mostly local. There are always street entertainers, who rotate their time throughout... More

Old Quebec is a unique experience in North America. The big hotels are just outside of the Old (walled) City. Be prepared to walk on cobblestones !

Delightful old Quebec is much like visiting Europe although it is a lot easier to get to from North American cities. Lots to see and do. Good place to learn about the settlement of Canada by the French. Lots of hotels and good restaurants. The Fairmont Chateau Frontenac is the most visible landmark from all parts of town. Nice place... More

Stayed in the old city for three nights, found plenty to do even with chilly temperatures. Excellent restaurants to choose from. Very pretty with Christmas decorations and a little snow.

We went to the upper and lower part of Old Quebec. Definitely has a European feel to it and it was very clean. It was so pretty and historic, definitely worth a visit. There`s so much to see and there`s lots of quaint shops and cafes. You can just spend the day strolling around. We had no problems with communication... More
