Discover the legends, history and secrets of Quebec City as well as all the main attractions in the historic area
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.
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
Château Frontenac and Dufferin Terrace
City Hall Place
Saint-Jean street, where you can find some of the best restaurants and cafes in the city
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.

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.
