Old Quebec City is a compact area that can be explored and understood quickly but continually holds surprises. It's filled with tourists (particularly during the musical festival week), but has abundant parks, restaurants, and other options for rest and revitalization.


This was the perfect program to begin my experience with Road Scholar. I highly recommend it.


This is a short trip packed with fun sights, cultural experiences, and scenic beauty. It was the perfect getaway for me--a single traveler with experience traveling to other continents. I hope to return for more Canadian adventures.


The Independent Quebec City program provides an excellent introduction to the area. It nicely mixes formal programming with free time and covered a great deal of ground in a relatively short time. I appreciate the focus on walking as central to understanding a city.


Other than the frequent rain, I thoroughly enjoyed this trip, my first Road Scholar adventure that will definitely not be my last. Sylvie Nadeau was an excellent host, and the speakers were great too. The hotel was centrally located in Old Quebec City within the wall and within walking distance of all the sites. Five stars


Very good


My brief trip to Quebec was terrific. I learned so much more than I would have had I gone on my own. It was a really rich experience. The guides and hotel were excellent.


Andre is the "parfait" guide:)


Your website has been valuable and helpful to us. I don't have any suggested changes.


The Quebec City Tour was excellent. We liked the location and accommodations at our hotel. The program was just a delight and 4 nights was perfect to take in this lovely city. The people in the city were very friendly & welcoming.


Loved this trip! I lost a day of trip due to airline cancellations but one I arrived I enjoyed the travels immensely. Tour guide was a joy and the group itself was very friendly. Quebec City is such a wonderful place to explore and I would love to return on my own to see more of the sights.


We enjoyed the program, limited by our delay in arriving by a storm at Chicago which resulted in two cancelled flights. I can recommend the program which is something like visiting a European city without leaving North America. The story of the French arrival in N. America began at Quebec City which makes it an amazing walk through some history.


A charming city with plenty of beautiful sites! Superb program leaders, delicious food, and life long memories! This was my first Road Scholar trip and look forward to more. Go ahead and sign up, you will be so glad you did!!


A great experience in terrible weather. We experienced Quebec City in three days of rain and wind. Nevertheless, an outstanding group leader who adapted to the weather conditions, superb speakers, and the charm of this accessible and welcoming town made what could have been a disaster into a terrific learning experience. Kudos to Road Scholar.


Quebec City was our first Road Scholar tour and we are hooked. We came home and began looking for our next tour.


This trip was a great one for those who want to try Road Scholar,like me, as it iss short in duration, and allows plenty of free time to explore. The old section of Quebec City is very manageable in size. The educational components are given by knowledgeable local people with great presentation skills. This was my first Road Scholar trip, but it won't be my last. Almost all people in Quebec City are English speaking, though I enjoyed trying my French. The city has history, beauty, culture, shopping, and wonderful cuisine in all price ranges.


The independent cities tour of Quebec City was fabulous! I had never been on a Road Scholar tour before, so this was a great way to get to know they type of programs that Road Scholar offers. Everything was well organized and coordinated, so there was no time wasted. I also liked having plenty of time to explore the city and museums on my own or with my travel companion. The food was outstanding too, due to great restaurant suggestions.


There's no better way for first timers to explore Old Quebec City than this Roads Scholar Independent Quebec City tour!


An old world experience in todays time.


Independent City Discoveries: Quebec City is a delightful experience for all your senses. Andrée Girard is a friendly and knowledgeable leader, supported by instructors who will help you appreciate this amazing city and its history. You must be able to climb lots of stairs and negotiate hills and some cobble stones, but if you have no physical limitations to your walking, this program is a terrific way to experience charming Quebec City.
