A-7 hour private tour to discover the treasures of the Greater Québec City area

This tour is tailor-made to discover the picturesque Island of Orleans and "Côte de Beaupré", the spectacular Montmorency Fall, much higher than Niagara Falls, and the reknown Shrine Basilica of Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré.

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 later, at "Le Musée du Fort", to a sound and light show of the famous Battle of the Plains of Abraham.

During our tour, you'll also admire the French and British architectural treasures of the Old Quebec, including its imposing cathedrals and, of course, the iconic Château Frontenac which overlooks the St. Lawrence River on Dufferin Terrace.

You will fall under the charm of and will be delighted by the sites and the breathtaking scenery that offers its region.

A Recent Review of this tour

My mother and I could not have had a better experience. It was a farewell tour for her at 88 years old. Claude designed a perfect tour with our special needs in mind. We had a lovely day. My mother said that Claude made the trip to Quebec city the highlight of our week, and I agree. I would recommend this guide in particular for his ability to be in tune with his customer at every step of the journey. We would request him in particular in a future visit to this fine city.
