Visit the best sites of Quebec in the mysteriousness of the night
Are you someone who prefers the dim light of the moon to the heavy day sun? Do you prefer the calmness of the night to the buzzing, touristic day?
I totally understand this mindset, and this is why I offer this tour. The feel is different when you visit the iconic locations without the crowd and the noise. Instead, it offers a much more personal experience as we're pretty much left alone with the monuments.
So let me take you through town, as we come across some of the best architecture in Canada, have a drink at the Artefact bar lounge and enjoy the beautiful setting of the shadows.
The tour begins with a tour of the upper town to see its iconic parts. This includes the parliament, the Quebec Citadelle which offers an overwhelming view, St-Jean street up to Côte de la Fabrique where we will see Notre-Dame cathedral of Quebec as well as the seminary's courtyard. We will then move towards the Château Frontenac to go down to the lower city.
Arrived in the lower city, we will admire Place-Royale and Place de Paris and walk on Little Champlain street (chosen most beautiful in Canada). After this will be our time to take a drink at the Artefact bar lounge. We'll then be able to admire british neo-classical architecture as we pass on St-Pierre street towards the Old Harbour. After seeing the marina at night, the tour will end near the Gare du palais or at your hotel.

We really enjoyed both seeing the sights and learning more about the Québécois perspective on being Canadian. Jean-Simon was knowledgable about local history and very responsive in modifying our tour to accommodate what we had already seen.
