Low Price Guarantee
Filled with narrow lanes and pedestrian-only streets, the historic center of Quebec City is best explored on foot. This guided walking tour ensures you won’t miss the details that make the city so fascinating. Take advantage of Quebec City’s layout by following a downhill route from beginning to end, as a guide shares stories from the fortified city that’s the beating heart of French Canada.
What to Expect
Make your way to a central location in Quebec City’s Upper Town, and then join your guide for a small-group tour of the historic center—a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Set out on foot to running commentary on the modern-day culture and long history of Quebec City, passing stone buildings with a distinctly European feel. You’ll see the Fortifications of Quebec, and learn the important role that the city walls once played.
Pass La Citadelle de Quebec (Quebec Citadel), an active military installation and the official residence of the Canadian monarch, then take in Notre Dame des Victoires—one of the oldest stone churches in Canada.
Cross Place Royale, often called the birthplace of French America, and wrap up the tour near the base of the Old Quebec Funicular, where you can hop a ride back up to the Upper Town without retracing your steps uphill.

I still remember the hand motions!

We arranged to do a walking tour with the concierge at the Chateau Frontenac when we couldn’t find any tours listed on the company websites in the winter. Louise was marvelous - don’t miss out on this even if it’s cold. It was so much...More

We also had Robert, he was great. Lots of walking and stairs, if you have mobility issues be warned. Lots of history, and time passed so fast!

great tour

We did a tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide who was part native and part French Canadian and spoke good English with a French-Canadian accent. We got the tour through the tourist center. Great tour.

Christmas Food Tour

Was a lovely walk around town tasting all the wonderful delights that Quebec City had to offer. Our guide Jocelyn ( sorry if I’ve spelt it wrong) was excellent. Had a lovely time well worth doing.
