Ride there and back for a nice view. Not much to see in Levis. Walk (or bus) up the huge hill to Chocolats Favoris, 32 Avenue Bégin, Lévis, for the most amazing chocolate. They do soft serve ice cream with one of 12 chocolate dips. This is dipped chocolate like none other. Get several of their smallest cones with different... More

Visited with a group of photographers staying in Levis we took the very short ferry ride across the river to Quebec City. Quebec City is a very walkable city reminiscent of old Europe. Within an hours drive there are many sights to see. We visited St Anne Canyon, Montmorese Falls, a winery, churches and more. Be sure to check out... More

We took this ferry recently and it is truly one of the best views of Quebec there is. Even in the freezing snow it was fun and I would recommend. Around 13.00 rt and worth it.

Take this short ferry to get a great perspective of the Old Town layout. Fantastic photo's will be your reward for a $13 round trip. We went in November, the ferry was spotlessly clean but due to the season had no cafe facilities other than vending machines. The 30 minute turn around time was just enough to buy a Tim... More

great way to see the Quebec City Shoreline. I went at night and the lights were fabulous! It really doesn't cost much - only about $7.00 American round trip

The Levis ferry is the best way to prepare for your stay in Quebec. The views are amazing, with the Frontenac looming on the cliff above the ferry terminal. The ride with a vehicle is only $11 and the ride is ~15 minutes. Worth every penny.

Thank Jon F
