We met our guide on the Dufferin Terrace just outside Château Frontenac where we had an overview of the construction and architecture before going inside. The lobby was amazing, we got to see one of the empty rooms and got the chance to go into the Salon Rose where the historic secret Quebec Conference took place in World War II. The tour is just 1 hour but provides a great overview of such an amazing place and things you would not know if just walking through on your own.

All our fellow passengers on cruise ship were jealous of our Frontebac adventure.
