Help needed for June celebration trip to Quebec City/Montreal

Jump to last reply

I've never been to Quebec City (nor Montreal, which is the second half of the trip) and the more I look at the pictures and read the reviews the more I fall in love with it. We will be in Quebec City 4 nights (but won't have much of the first day because we are traveling most of the day) and Montreal 3 and then Kingston 1 night on the way home. I had planned on doing the trip as Kingston, Montreal and Quebec City but the Grand Prix is the weekend we would be hitting Montreal and I have no interest in being there for that!!

I believe we (husband and I - no kids) have settled on Hotel 71 in Quebec City. As we will be driving from Detroit and they have a summer package for a very good price, and it includes valet parking. The hotel looks charming - as do most of the hotels in Quebec. It will be nice to deviate from the Marriott-chain type places we usually stay in. I don't have a hotel booked yet for Montreal. I'm thinking downtown vs Old town would be better. One, less touristy and two, we will be coming from Quebec where we will get our fill of 'old town'. Is that right?

My questions...while I'm still in the planning stages....are as follows:

Walking tours - I love them. Thinking about taking one the first day we are there in each city. Which walking tour do you recommend?

Guided tours - yup, love those too. Do any of the museums/historic sights have them. I believe Notre Dame does, correct? And in Quebec City the Parliament Building does.

Lastly - where do the locals go? What place is that tucked away hidden gem?

Interests: art, history, tours, culture, foodie (will need one extra special dinner for a birthday celebration), and photography

In Quebec City we are considering taking a day and driving to Montmorency Falls, and then Ile d'Orleans to visit a winery or two.

On the list of things to do for sure in Montreal are : Museum of Fine Arts ((specifically for the Chihuly Glass exhibit), Botanical gardens (yup, I'll be camera-ready) and Notre Dame.

On the way home we are planning on a boat tour in the Thousand Island area with a tour of Boldt Castle and one last night in Kingston.

Thanks in advance everyone!! <3
