Special Offer

Private walking tour of the UNESCO Historic District of Old Québec

This tour will show you the most important parts of the Historic District of Old Quebec, which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1985. Starting with the first nations, we'll go through the history of the city with the arrival of the first French settlers, the creation of the Royal colony of New France, the emergence of Quebec City as capital of British North America, the creation of the Dominion of Canada, leading to the contemporary era. Almost 500 years of history! I can do rigorous in-dept guided tours, but I can also do light and amusing ones with many fun facts and anecdotes! My philosophy is to listen to my clients needs, and tailor-made a visit that will measure up to their expectations and hopefully beyond.
