Brian J.

Québec City, Quebec, Canada

I logged 5000 hours as a bush pilot (helicopters) - hundreds touring Québec City from above - then 5000 hours sitting in the back of airliners, travelling the world as an air transportation industry lobbyist.

Since becoming a tour guide, I've given over 130 leisurely tours, painting what I hope are insightful portraits of Québec City's history, architecture, culture, using traveler questions as my colour pallet.

Discounting the typical streaming of historical facts, my background allows me to profile surprising socio-economic and geo-political links between, people, places, events and I try to deliver them in a manner that is as much fun, as it is interesting.

The use of electronic communications equipment makes walking/driving safer, while enhancing the tour experience for clients.

Au plaisir

A Recent Review of this guide

Brian's tour provided incredible insight into the history and buildings of QC--And amazing back stories. He knows so much about QC that served as a great start to our visit. He is also very easy-going and quite friendly. Overall we had a wonderful 3 hours strolling through Old QC with Brian.
