Only time for one tour? Here’s a quick breakdown:
Upper Town of Quebec City Bike Tour– best for first-time visitors, or those that want to visit the core of the city. It’s not all Old Quebec though, this tour also visits a residential neighbourhood, the huge Plains of Abraham park, and offers incredible views of the Old City and the St. Lawrence River from above.
Lower Town of Quebec City Bike Tour – best for those that want to dive a little deeper into the lifestyle and pulse of the city. This is the tour that will even impress locals as it visits both major sites (such as Lower Old Quebec, the Old Port, and the Old Port Market), but also some tucked-away spots like riding laneways in the neighbourhood of Limoilou.
All of our tours can run rain or shine. We even offer rain capes on bike tours to keep you dry! Only in extreme weather conditions shall a tour be cancelled. This decision is always taken at the meeting point of the tour and never before the departing time. In the rare event a tour is cancelled we will attempt to place you on another departure, or offer you a full refund.
Almost everyone yes! Ours tours run at a relaxed pace, and include plenty of breaks and informational stops along the way. The tours stick mostly to bike paths, although we occasionally run along quieter city streets and through parks.
Those who know Quebec City will know there are a lot of hills – but don’t worry, we’ve chosen routes that minimize the hills, and we’ve also chose bikes that are very comfortable and easy to ride.
Lastly, riding in a group is helpful and we always provide tips for smart and safe riding at the beginning of each tour. If you’ve ridden a bike before, you’ll be more than fine!
For our regular tours, cancellations made more than 24 hours in advance are fully refundable (A 5% cancellation fee applies). Tours cancelled with less than 24 hours notice are non-refundable.
If a date and time is sold out, there is always a good chance that we will add an additional tour on that day. Please contact us to let us know what date you are interested in if you do not see availability.
