With the music festival going on, the buzz here is incredible. And despite the number of people, nothing is unbearably crowded. Can spend hours a day every day walking around, and taking in the music in the evenings.

Beautiful, clean, friendly city--Old Quebec! A piece is France/Europe without having to fly across the ocean. Historical and quaint. Restaurants galore! We will be back!

Just left after a great few days. Definitely bring walking shoes. Lots of hills. Lots of history here. No problem if you can't speak French-most people switch to English. Stayed at Hotel du Vieux and it was great.

Cute stores, little outdoor cafes, lots of scheduled street performers to keep you entertained between shopping an eating.

We did a two-week tour of Southern Quebec province, including Saint-Mathieu-de-Beloeil, Montreal, Quebec, and St. Nicolas. We loved many of the aspects of our visit, the various townships and neighborhoods, but Old Quebec was by far the finest experience. It is truly a staggering piece of European excellence smack in the heart of North America. Highly, highly recommend.

There is so many old beautiful buildings to see in Old Quebec. The sidewalks are lined with patio restaurants in the summer.. There is a ferry you can take across to the other side for $3.50 and get a beautiful view of the city. Lots to see and do.

The upper Quebec streets are crowded and the better restaurants are busy in the high season so plan accordingly. Remember just because a restaurant isn't busy they may be very good. Also just because they are busy doesn't mean they are good.
