Xavier

St Henri, Quebec, Canada

Hi ! I will be delighted to help you discover Québec-City, Lévis, Trois-Rivières and the surroundings.

Although I am a native of Strasbourg (Alsace), where I was a guide, especially for ToursByLocals, I studied three years in Trois-Rivières (Québec) and I now live for several years near Lévis (Québec).

This is what you can expect from my tours:
- a friendly tour,
- a good overview of the place, without going too fast,
- a brief overview of the local history,
- learn about amusing anecdotes, little stories that give the flavor of the place,
- understand the political issues,
- learn many things about the French-Canadian culture (gastronomy, language, customs, architecture. . . ),
- answers to your questions and some tips about the good spots.

I'm not just a tour guide. I am also on the board of a local historical society and I am a beekeeper. I was an amateur oarsman (sweep and sculling) in Strasbourg and now I'm an indoor rower. During Winter I work for the Hotel de Glace (ice hotel) as a guide and night guide.
