Stayed in Levis for the night and decided to go to Quebec City for supper and a bit of a walking tour. Decided to take the Ferry across rather than drive. We're not disappointed. Was not real busy. Workers were very helpful and very pleasant. Reasonable prices and perfect opportunity to get some nice pictures of the City at night... More

We took the ferry instead of paying a bundle for one of the cruises. We had every bit as good of a view of Old Quebec and the Frontenac hotel as any cruise. If we hadn't been limited on time, I would have walked to the top Levis town for more views.

This activity was recommended by our innkeeper. It was a cold sunny winter day and the river was filled with chunks of ice. We went to a microbrewery in Levis then returned to Quebec City at sunset. The view of the Old City was AWESOME! At $7.00 return per person this was a fabulous way to see the city from... More

This is the best way to see Quebec City and great fun too. Also great fun to see and hear the ice breaking by the bow. CAD2.50 each way. A lot of fun on a very cold February day.

This is the best way to arrive in Quebec, ESPECIALLY if you happen to be staying at the Chateau Frontenac. The majestic hotel is just a bump on the horizon as you depart on the ferry from Levis, but it grows larger and larger and larger until the ferry is berthed at the terminal in Quebec as the Chateau fills...

The journey from Québec to Levi's only takes a few minutes but is an excellent way of getting some good views if the St Lawrence and excellent photographs looking back towards old Québec and, in particular, the Château Frontenac

A trip to Levis is a must to see the gorgeous Quebec City skyline! It's easy to buy tickets, and takes around 90 minutes from start to finish.

The traversy Is not long, about 5-10 minutes, but is definitely a good activity to do, on summer or winter is a good activity. On summer is gorgeous, the view of the Chateau Hotel and the wonderful colors. On winter, I recommend just when the river is iced, a great and unique experience, must go!

I need to be mindful here. The ferry over to Levis is nice. Well run. Clean. Timely. Safe. Professional. Great views. It was winter so there was plenty of ice on the St. Lawrence River so watching the ferry cut through the ice was really cool. However, the town of Levis was a major disappointment. At least for us in... More

Fantastic experience hearing the ferry crack through the ice on the river, wrap up warm as it gets very cold if you wNt to stand outside although it was lovely and warm inside. Views of old Quebec were fantastic from the ferry, something you wouldn't see from the shore. Well worth the trip which takes about an hour - you... More
