Quebec City and Orleans Island Tour
Quebec City & Orleans Island – Thursday, May 31st from 10:30am-4:00pm, $140 per person
Depart from the Delta Québec and follow your guide off the beaten paths and you will be charmed by Old Quebec, the only walled city in North America. You will be impressed by this UNESCO World Heritage site where fine old buildings and proud monuments line winding streets and picturesque places such as: the National Assembly and Parliament hill, the Battlefields Park, the Citadel, the Château Frontenac, Notre-Dame-de-Québec basilica and Place d’Armes. A stop will also be made at Place Royale, the cradle of French civilisation in North America, in the heart of the old Lower Town along the St. Lawrence river-front.
Then discover the Parc-de-la-Chute-Montmorency: the most spectacular falls in the province, one and a half times higher than Niagara Falls! You will enjoy the outstanding view from the suspended bridge overlooking the St. Lawrence River! Also enjoy a good lunch in a historical mansion located at top of the Falls.
Americans inhabited the Ile d’Orléans long before Jacques Cartier set foot on it in 1535 and named it in honour of the Duc d’Orleans, son of François 1er, King of France. Its rich natural elements and its outstanding architectural treasures offer a diverse collection of charming and breathtaking landscapes. Known as the “Garden of Quebec”, its rich soil has allowed the local producers to create unique tastes, which contributed to a long-standing reputation of quality and authenticity of many products derived from agriculture.
