Activity #2 : Visit of the Château Frontenac and Cruise on the M/V Louis Jolliet
The excursion begins with the visit of the Château Frontenac. Built in 1892, this hotel stands witness to over 100 years of history. You will be guided by a 19th century character, who will have you discover the “world’s most photographed hotel”. Your guide will tell you the hotel’s secrets and details not many people know. Most often, it will be on tiptoe that your guide will allow you into the hotel’s intimacy, where whispers and secrets abound.
After the visit, walk down to Place Royale for a lunch at the Côtes à Côtes Resto-Grill. Offering an enchanting view of the Château Frontenac, it’s the restaurant closest to the St. Lawrence River in this part of town; their terrace is set for you to benefit from the nice views. A real haven of tranquility in this lively section of the Old Quebec!
From 2:00 to 3:30 PM, discover the city from a whole new angle aboard the M/V Louis Jolliet.
Sail away on a captivating 1.5-hour guided cruise on the Saint-Lawrence River aboard the M/V Louis Jolliet. You will learn a little more about the Old Capitals’ history, the river and the surrounding region. Throughout the cruise, take in spectacular views of the fortifications, the Château Frontenac, the Montmorency Fall, the Orleans Island, the Beaupré Coast, and the Laurentian Mountains. A truly lovely and instructive cruise!
