The see most World Heritage Sites Tour


On this 2 hour tour you will discover that Old Québec City is like a theme park, dedicated to 500 years of North American history. You will see the principal sites that made our City a UNESCO World Heritage Treasure. You will learn why Place Royale became the city's birthplace, how Champlain created a fur trading network through the midwest, down to New Orleans, how he set the stage for colinisation and why the Bristish, then the Americans, desperately wanted Québec.

I will provide a geo-political sketch that connects the dots between Québec City and the French Indian/Seven Years War, as well as the American War of Independance.

Electronic communications equipment make this a truly "private" tour.
