Cross the Saint-Lawrence River and see Quebec City perched on top of Cape Diamond
Before booking a tour, please ask me if I am available on that day.
This 4-hour tour provides a more interesting perspective than a car tour, because you can see more details. So let yourself be transported back in time.
We will walk at a moderate pace in the narrow streets of Old Quebec, you will see all its historical and romantic aspects, as the 18-century houses, and the prestigious Chateau Frontenac Hotel. My explanations will help you relive the New-France History while recounting short anecdotes and the daily lives of our ancestors and how the city has evolved. You'll see the oldest house north of Mexico which was built in 1677 and the Latin Quarter.
You will have the chance to see some ancestors' houses in Place Royale where Quebec City was founded.
We will take the Ferry Boat to cross the river and see the magnificent Quebec City perched on top of Cape Diamond.
PLEASE NOTE that between September 10 and October 26, I won't be fully available, I have few tours already booked.

Diane is a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable. She has a good sense of humor that she uses to highlight the history. I would highly recommend walking with her. She recommended a restaurant and we took her advice for our good-bye dinner and it was a lovely relaxing atmosphere and great food. We had a family tragedy the evening before and one of our group got many phone calls during our walk, but Diane was patient and took the distraction in stride. I appreciated her patience.
