Your 2.5-hour bike tour begins when you meet the group at the bike shop, where the staff will size you up to be sure you have the right bike and equipment for your experience level. Once you're ready, roll out to explore Quebec’s historic Lower Town district with your informative guide. This easy ride covers 8 miles (13 km) on mostly flat terrain. Most of Lower Town is car-free, and very bike friendly!

Pedal along the waterfront to reach the Old Port (Vieux-Port), where your guide shares interesting tidbits about the revitalized cruise port and the Musée de la Civilisation that sits just around the corner. Continue to Royal Square (Place-Royale), the first permanent French settlement in North America, and admire the colorful murals depicting this heritage on the side of centuries-old buildings.
Over in the nearby Petit Champlain district, take note of the fairytale stone buildings along the cobblestone streets, then head down a path fringed with quaint urban parks along the St Charles River. Glean a few more facts about the city at a monastery built during the French regime and the Cartier-Brébeuf National Historic Site that dates back to 1535.
Your guide will lead you back to the bike shop where you can continue exploring Quebec on your own.

  • Simon, the English bike tour guide, was excellent. He and his colleague accommodated the fact that my wife was having difficulty keeping up with the others in a very cheerful manner. He gave us some interesting historical facts about the places we stopped at and even gave us a good recommendation for a microbrewery La Barbarie!

  • Terrific trip, our guide, Denis', was informative and enthusiastic. The ride itself was a joy, a great way to get the lay of the land in Old Quebec.

  • This was a great tour for my entire family! I have two kids, ages 13 and 9, and both loved the tour and felt they got a lot out of the history and sites. Uli, our guide, was fantastic as she was thorough in her instructions when biking, her knowledge of the city and showed a great interest in making sure my kids - who were the only kids on the tour - were attended to the entire time. Would do this tour again in a heartbeat! Thank you!!

  • We had a wonderful time riding through lower town with our tour guide Denny. It was a great opportunity to chat with a local and get his perspective on all sorts of interesting topics. Quebec City is well set up for biking with bike paths through beautiful parks and along the river. There were only 3 in our group, so we felt like we had our own personal tour guide. This was definitely the highlight of our trip!

  • Our guide Guy was great. A cold windy day but great sites and history. Would highly recommend. One of us was not a regular bike rider but he adjusted the tour and we all had fun.

  • Loved this tour.
    Great guide and a great way to learn about the city while being active.
    A lovely way to learn and see.

  • Wonderful trip with a knowledgeable guide . Only a short walk from the cruise terminal , we were lucky that Sunday morning as my wife and. We're the only two people on this tour . Both of us being in good shape we were able to see a lot more of Quebec on bike than most . I would highly recommend this trip and this company , top notch from start to end .
