Michel S.

Old Québec, Quebec, Canada

Bonjour! Born in Quebec City and now living within the walls of Old Québec, genealogy and local history led me to the fascinating story of the French, British and Spanish who shaped North America. . . and Québec.

I would be more than happy to make your family and friends discover the treasures of our outstanding World Heritage city and its region. And why not coming to my 1845 residence to share a drink for a "happy wrap-up" or a hot beverage in winter?

As a licensed guide, I pride myself on offering visitors comprehensive historic and cultural overviews of the role played by Québec, capital city of the French in America, and the strategic St. Lawrence River, gateway to the center of the continent, from the 1500s to present day.

My tours are supported by original graphic material - maps, topographical painters' views, old photos - and are accurately documented from top reference books about the History of Quebec, Canada and the United States of America.

I now travel North America in quite a different way, always trying to find ties between Quebec City's military, religious, social and political institutions and the cities I visit! My most recent destinations were Louisiana, British and Acadian Nova-Scotia, Oregon to British-Columbia, South Carolina to Northern Florida!

Before becoming a tour guide myself, I had not hired a lot of tour guides… Now, I never visit an interesting city without doing a tour with a passionate and knowledgeable guide! And I have to recognize these tours are quite often the highlights of my trips!
