What to Expect
Meet your private guide at a central location in Quebec City’s Upper Town, and then set out on foot through the narrow cobbled streets of Old Quebec—the city's center and the historic heart of French Canada. As you walk, take advantage of your time with your guide to chat about local history, culture, and landmarks, pausing as often as you wish to take pictures or learn more. The itinerary is fully customizable, but some must-see highlights include the Fortifications of Quebec; Notre Dame des Victoires Church, one of the oldest stone churches in Canada; the Citadelle de Quebec, the official residence of the Canadian monarch; and the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, the city's iconic hilltop hotel. When the walking tour concludes back in Upper Town, your guide can give you tips on the best things to see, do, and eat during the rest of your time in Quebec City.
