Approximately 7½ Hours
Learn the fascinating history of Québec as you are whisked back in time to relive the city's 400-year legacy, followed by a journey along the St-Lawrence River to the Beaupré Coast. This is one of the most picturesque areas of the Province of Québec.
You will first visit the Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine, where popular belief holds that Ste-Anne saved numerous shipwreck victims off Cap Tourmente.
Head over to the Island of Orléans for a scenic drive through pastoral landscapes and an exquisite lunch in a beautiful setting.
Visit an authentic cabane à sucre (sugar shack) to see how maple products are made, and taste sweet maple taffy.
As you make your way back to Québec City, you'll stop at Montmorency Falls. Cascading down a 272-foot cliff, the falls are 1½ times higher than Niagara Falls. See the powerful forces of nature as the water of the Montmorency River roars down the cliff to eventually meet with the St Lawrence River.
Inside the fortress walls of Old Québec you will discover the strength and beauty of the cradle of French culture in North America. This city is a remarkable mélange of Amerindian, French and British heritage, evident in its narrow cobblestone streets, stone gates and ramparts. Drive by Dufferin Terrace and the Château Frontenac Hotel -- Québec's most famous landmark -- for panoramic views over the Old City, the Lower Town, the St Lawrence River and the surrounding countryside.
Please note: The Best of Québec & Countryside is a comprehensive tour. If you purchase this tour, you should not purchase Countryside of Québec or Historic & Modern Québec, as they visit many of the same attractions.
