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.

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 main attractions we may see together if time permits:

The National Assembly and Parliament hill
The fortifications
Château Frontenac and Dufferin Terrace with the famous tobogganing slide
Notre-Dame-de-Québec Basilica
City Hall
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 Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building, Suggested by Guide: We can meet in front of the Statue of Samuel de Champlain standing proudly by the famous Chateau Frontenac.

End Point Options: Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

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.
