Jean-Simon P.

Québec City, QC, Canada

I'm Jean-Simon (feel free to call me Simon), I was born in Québec City and always lived here.

Since I was very young, I was interested in history, art, culture and architecture. This passion only grew with time, and family, friends and strangers often looked up to me for this type of knowledge, which I would gladly give them.

It was in 2016 that I decided that I should make use of this passion, and I studied at Collège Mérici to become an accredited guide. Being a direct descendant of the French colonists who founded Canada, I will proudly share with you our heritage and culture, and I will not be satisfied with myself if after your visit, you do not love this beautiful and ancient city as much as I do.

I love meeting people from different places, each encounter is unique and interesting. As such, I really am looking forward to our tour!

A Recent Review of this guide

Jean-Simon was an excellent and informative guide who led us through beautiful Quebec City. His love and understanding of the history of the city which he shared made the tour fun and educational as well. It was a great afternoon.
