I have been a Quebec City historical Tour Guide since 2004 and I am very enthusiastic when I talk about New France History. Having strong communication skills in English, I really enjoy meeting tourists from all around the world.
I hold a Quebec Bachelor Degree in Teaching since 1983. In fact, I used to be a High School Teacher. Later on, I studied Tourism and I obtained a Quebec Diploma of College Studies in Tourism. During the 80's and the 90's I've been travelling in Europe, United States and Canada.
I am an excellent Historical Tour Guide who has many years of experience. If you want to see a lot of details in Quebec City's architecture, the Walking Tour of Old Quebec and the Historical Lower Town would be the best one for you. As a second choice I offer the Walking Tour of the Modern Lower Town. The two first tours can be done in winter, but you will need warm clothes.
I also offer 3 Car Tours : Orleans' Island /Montmorency Falls, the Old King's Road and Charlevoix Region.
I could offer a Quebec City and Levis City Car Tour or a City of Levis Walking Tour as a Customised Tour.
If you choose a Car Tour and you want to be picked up at the airport to start the tour, you need to know that guides are not allowed to wait outside of the airport terminal. We have to park our car in the parking lot and then everyone pushes their suitcases to the parking lot. That's a new rule since 2019. PLEASE, don't forget to mention the size of your suitcases and how many you have. I own a Car not a Mini-van. . .
Compared to other cities in the world, Quebec City is not very old; however, it is the oldest city north of Florida. (St. Augustine being the oldest city, founded in 1565)
