It's a must see at 10am in the morning if it's not raining. It's an active military base and with a great view of the Château. Must see event while visiting Le Vieux Quebec

I took a walking tour of the fortifications and I really enjoyed it. There was more history and military history than a regular walking tour so I learned more about the battles that took place and the strategies involved.

I recommend this tour for people who are interested in learning about the military history of Quebec city.

Worth it if you've never seen such a site, but so touristy it was a distraction from the history. You really had to step back to imagine how it might have been. Buildings are beautiful and it was very walkable.

A good walk through a piece of history. Cannons and cannonballs were on display. We could picture how the soldiers protected the city against invasions. Museum had good pictorials of history of the fortifications. Docent was very helpful. Clean restroom.

A great way to walk around old Quebec city, although we were disappointed to see the graffiti in some areas and trash left behind.
