The Hunt for Quebec City’s secrets.
Our Scavenger hunt is a fun activity and it is designed to suit visitors of all kinds. Developed so that participants work in teams of 2 to 4 to find the right answers to the questions that we have prepared.
This is the ideal activity for "team building" while allowing to have fun. The sense of deduction and observation are honored, the hunt is a competition and a team is declared winner at the end. Participants also learn about the history of Quebec City through all the questions and the presence of professional tour guides that supervise the activity.
Our Scavenger Hunt browse’s through the most important sites of Old Quebec, from Chateau Frontenac to Quartier Petit-Champlain.
In addition, since one or more professional guides oversee the group, we offer a mini walking tour, after completing the Scavenger Hunt, to allow greater interaction between participants and guide. This tour is, of course, optional and brings no additional costs.
The meeting point is inside the Tourist Information Centre (12, rue Sainte-Anne, Vieux-Québec), at a time most convenient for you. The hunt is completed in a maximum of 2 hours.
Private City and Country in vehicle (8h)
Embark on a tour that will lead the group to the Beaupre coast. Travelling along a scenic route with magnificent views of the mighty St. Lawrence river and the Laurentian mountains, including the incredible Montmorency falls and the shrine Saint-Anne-de-Beaupre. The Shrine is a major Roman Catholic place of pilgrimage and has the only copy of Michelangelo's Pieta.
Continue your travel to Montmorency Falls where you'll be sure to get the best views and photos of this natural beauty. Located between the river and the cliffs, it's one of the province's most spectacular sites. With its 83 meters high, Montmorency Falls dominates the landscape. Cross the suspension bridge or even take the cable car that goes from the base to the top of the falls.
Travelling on, with more great views of the countryside we're off to Ile D’Orleans, right across the way from the falls. The island is home to many, mostly family owned farms, and famous for its Maple products, local producers and wineries. Ask your guide to stop at one of the many stands along the way, so you can taste the sweet local favorites.
By now you will have worked up an appetite for the fine taste of locally produced foods and we will stop for lunch!
(If you've worked up an appetite, along the way, the guide could suggest a stop for a quick bite.)
We recommand lunch at the restaurant Moulin St. Laurent, housed in an old flour mill, dating back to 1720. It offers fine regional cuisine using only local products and an opportunity to relax in its beautiful setting beside a waterfall and facing the St. Lawrence river.
Having seen and experienced Countryside we will slowly make our way back to Vieux Quebec and discover historic Quebec City (Upper and Lower Town) through its history, architecture and culture. This tour allows sufficient time to visit not only the must-see walled city and the historic lower town but also to venture beyond the fortifications: Parliament hill and Battlefield Park, the famous Plains of Abraham. During the tour, we will stop a few times to walk through some areas inaccessible by vehicle, walk on Dufferin Terrasse, Place Royale (the oldest settlement in North America), and other historic sites in Old Quebec.
A private tour is of course flexible, at your demand.
This tour lasts 8hours. The departure time and meeting point, if within the historical district, are at your convenience.
