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.

A must when visiting Quebec

We were fortunate enough to have Francoise Vidal as our tour guide, the information he relayed over the tour was so very interesting. We had a diverse group and he had everyone engaged. He brought Quebec to life. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon.

Fabulous. Robert Vandermeer was the guide for us. Extremely knowledgeable, stays current on city information, and loves his job. The 2.5 hour tour was just the right length. Good balance between talking, walking, and stopping. Since he had lived in the old town for 10...More
