Discover the beauty of this 400-year-old winter capital in North America with a private guide
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.
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 fortified city is definitely by foot, following me through four centuries of history.
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 main attractions we may see together if time permits:
The National Assembly and Parliament hill
Château Frontenac and Dufferin Terrace with the famous tobogganing slide
The Old Port district
Without forgetting Place Royale and the Petit-Champlain area where tiny boutiques, restaurants and houses of the 17th century are located.
If time permits, we may visit the Farmers Market where you can sample and taste local products such as maple sirup, cidre or ice wine.
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: We can meet in the lobby of your hotel if located downtown Quebec City or at a walkable distance from the Historic area.
End location: I will end the tour wherever you would like in the Old Town to continue your exploration of our beautiful City. I can also end the tour back to your hotel if located at a walkable distance from the Old Town.
Duration: 3 hours
Winter in Quebec City can be very unpredictable and cold. As we are walking outdoor for most of the tour, the itinerary can vary and be adjusted to the weather conditions. However, if you book this tour, I strongly suggest you wear all the gear necessary to enjoy as much as possible your visit of the historic area: mittens, hat or tuque, scarf, winter jacket, as many layers as possible, good winter boots and thick socks.
This is a walking tour.
My services as a professional tour guide, one tobogganing slide per person for the more adventurous, one trip on the funicular from Lower Town to Upper Town per person if necessary, one small-sized hot chocolate at a local coffee shop per person to warm you up during the tour.
