Loved walking in the narrow old streets, its a very live place. I went in the winter so there was one shop that had maple taffy on snow, my children really enjoyed that!

Walking around the area and seeing the shops and restaurants was a fun part of our couple's vacation. The whole old town is beautiful and unique. Visiting Quebec felt a lot like visiting a quaint European city with the cobblestone and picturesque architecture.

If you prefer by bus or train to Old Quebec City, I suggest you better join bus tour in Toronto. The price is affordable/reasonable, (not expensive). They include accommodation (3.5-5 star), is really a good deal,
