Discover the well-hidden secrets outside the traditional areas and get to experience the local life


Old Quebec is a charming 400-year-old town nestled in the narrowing of the beautiful St-Lawrence River. During this tour, I will be more than happy to show you why Quebec City is regularly ranked among the world's top destinations. However, you will explore its other side of the fortifications. The more local and authentic one.

This UNESCO World Heritage site has a lot to offer, from old winding streets to trendy local restaurants, from traditional French architecture to proudly standing monuments. Needless to say, the best way to discover this city is definitely by foot, following me through centuries of history.

This tour is meant to show you all the well hidden secrets outside the touristy areas. You will discover places and neighbourhoods you might have missed without following me or during your first visit of the Old Quebec.

Itinerary

This tour is meant to be adapted to your interests and pace. Our walk is planned according to your desire and I can be very flexible on the itinerary. Along the way, here are the well-hidden secrets I would like to show you taking the most beautiful streets off the beaten-paths:

The vibrant and revitalized St-Roch district
St-Jean Street (outside the fortifications of Quebec) with its famous chocolate museum Erico, the best gelato place in town, Tutto Gelato, and one of the oldest grocery stores in the country, J. A Moisan
The Fortifications with a view from the top for the more adventurous
Montcalm district, where the French and English bourgeoisies settled during the 19th and 20th century
Cartier Avenue, full of local shops and restaurants
