Meet and greet the tour guide and group at a bike shop in Old Québec City’s Lower Town district. After getting fitted for a bike and helmet, there is a brief safety orientation before beginning your ride around and through Lower Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cruise along mostly bike-friendly, flat terrain during this relaxing bike ride.

Pedal along the waterfront to the revitalized Old Port and nearby Musée de la Civilisation (Museum of Civilization), the most popular museum in Québec City. Then continue to Place-Royale, the first permanent French settlement in North America. 

Far from the hustle of the large shopping centers is Quartier Petit Champlain, with its many stone building boutiques, cafés and restaurants along cobblestone streets. From there, quaint urban parks lead the way to the banks of the Saint-Charles River and the Cartier-Brébeuf National Historic Site, a beautiful city park on the river’s north shore.

Wealth of Knowledge and Fun!

Seeing Quebec by bike was one of the best things I did! My guide, Guy, was informative and shared history with pictures and relevance. He was fun, interesting, and accommodated the bike ride's pace to my needs. It was gorgeous to see the fall colors by bike, alongside the St. Charles and St Lawrence River. My friend wanted to join me but her bike skills were too limited. Guy and his colleagues tried idea after idea to try to have her be able to ride. I was so impressed with their kindness, caring, and determination. The tour itself is excellent. Fascinating facts about the current landscape and what had occurred on these sites. I would do it again!

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!

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!
