Discover the legends, history and secrets of Quebec City


Old Quebec is a charming 400-year-old town nestled in the narrowing of the beautiful St-Lawrence River. During this tour, I will be more than happy to show you why Quebec City is regularly ranked among the world's top destinations.

This UNESCO World Heritage site has a lot to offer, from old winding streets to trendy local restaurants, from traditional French architecture to proudly standing monuments. Needless to say, the best way to discover this fortified city is definitely by foot, following me through four centuries of history.

Itinerary

This tour is my traditional version of a city tour by foot. It is also meant to be adapted to your interests and pace. Our walk is planned with the goal to show you as much as possible, passing in front of most of the main attractions in the Historic area and I can be very flexible on the itinerary. Along the way, here are the main attractions we may see together:

The National Assembly and Parliament hill
The fortifications
Château Frontenac and Dufferin Terrace
Notre-Dame-de-Québec Basilica
City Hall
The Old Port district
Without forgetting Place Royale and the Petit-Champlain area where tiny boutiques, restaurants and houses of the 17th century are located.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

End Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Transportation

This is a walking tour. Although Quebec City is very hilly, most of the tour is a light exercice. You must be able to walk and/or stand for the duration of the tour. However, many stops along the way will permit you to sit and rest for a moment.

A Recent Review of this tour

Djany was great. Very enthusiastic and you can tell she loves this city. Very informative and showed us several secret passageways. Also provided us with printed guide of restaurant recommendations and a map. Very much appreciated. Our feet started wearing out at end as we toured Montreal for several days before and she was very accommodating. Thank you for a great introduction to this beautiful city.
