Brian J.

Québec City, Quebec, Canada

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

Combining that experience with my university credentials, allows me to discount the typical streaming of historical facts and instead profile distinctive 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.

Since becoming a tour guide, I've given over 140 leisurely tours, painting what I hope are insightful portraits of Québec City's history, architecture, culture, using traveler questions as my colour pallet.

Au plaisir

A Recent Review of this guide

Very knowledgeable, personable, and friendly. Was able to customizes our tour and give us more warm breaks due to the cold weather.
