At the Citadel, in the heart of the Fortifications of Quebec City, you will attend the traditional ceremony of Changing of the Guard featuring soldiers decked out in their scarlet red regimental dress and bearskin cap, and visit the somptuous Official Residence of the Governor General of Canada.

Afterwards, this tour will allow you to sites and breathtaking sceneries of its countryside, including the picturesque Island of Orleans and "Côte de Beaupré", the spectacular Montmorency Fall, much higher than Niagara Falls, and the reknown and gorgeous Shrine Basilica of Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré.

A Recent Review of this tour

I rarely comment on anything, but Claude's tour was incredible! This was a first "private" tour for all four of us. We've seen many group tours, and now realize how impersonal they can be. Claude far exceeded our expectations with his lifelong knowledge and sincere desire to share with others. He had Historical information, but also keeps up with current events. And, he is very well known and appreciated throughout the Province, providing a VIP experience at each of the venues. Easily a 5 star booking!
