Quebec Grand Tour… so as not to miss anything

Duration: 2 to 8 hours

Rate: To be determined according to the duration of the tour

 

You have your own vehicle and don't want to miss anything... Avoid headaches and let me accompany you and guide you through the city of Quebec and its region.


This private tour will be tailored to your interests and expectations. You will have the opportunity to visit Quebec City, the Parc de la Chute-Montmorency (waterfall),  the Côte de Beaupré and its famous Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré as well as the Ile d'Orléans.

After your city tour a short ten minute drive along the St. Lawrence River will take you to the magnificent Montmorency Falls ($). You will be impressed by this waterfall, which exceeds the height of Niagara Falls by 30 metres. This unique site will enchant you. On site, you will have about ½ hour of free time at the bottom of the falls to stroll, take pictures and admire the breathtaking scenery. If you wish to take the cable car to the summit of the falls, visit the Manoir Montmorency, its interpretation centre, or cross the suspension bridge you will have to plan 30-45 additional minutes on site.

By taking the Avenue Royale also called Route de la Nouvelle-France, the oldest road that could accommodate wheeled vehicles in the region dating from the early 18th century (1734), you will succumb to the charm of the beautiful landscapes of the Quebec countryside. Pilgrims have travelled this way for years to the Basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, a world-famous pilgrimage site. This sanctuary, the most famous in North America, whose history began in 1658, welcomes every year more than a million pilgrims from all over the world. You will be amazed by this imposing 100 meters high Neo-Romanesque granite cathedral , the beauty of its stained glass windows, its murals, as well as several other artistic treasures, including the only copy of Michel Angelo's Pieta. Outside the basilica you will be impressed by the man-size Way of the cross as well as the Memorial Chapel and the Holy Stairs. A visit of 45-60 minutes is recommended.

On the way to the Basilica you will have a chance to taste Maple products ($) (allow 20-30 min), visit the Unique Copper museum-boutique (allow 30-45 min) or visit a vineyard ($) (allow 45 min).

At the end why not enhancing your tour with a visit to the island of Orléans, cradle of rural French America. You will fall under the charm of this island where the landscapes, the heritage and the agritourism unite to enchant you. If you only have 30 min I propose a visit to the village of Sainte-Pétronille (western tip of the island) which will remind you the picturesque charm of rural life of the 19th century and offers a spectacular view of Quebec City.

If you have more time then you will have the opportunity to explore the villages of St-Laurent, St-Jean, Ste-Famille and St-Pierre founded in 1661 and 1679. You may visit one of the many art galleries on the island, an old mill, a manor house dating from the French regime ($), a rural church built in the XVIII century, a sugar shack ($), a vineyard ($)... or stop at one of the many kiosks along the way, to taste the local delicacies such as wines, ciders, chocolates, cheeses, fruits and vegetables... (allow a min of 90-120 min).
