About
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.

Highlights
  • Experiencing Quebec City with a guide means you’ll see and understand more
  • Visit pedestrian-only sites in the heart of the historic city
  • Follow a gentle, downhill-only route from Upper Town to Lower Town
  • Finish by the Old Quebec Funicular, which links Lower Town and Upper Town
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.

Great Fun & Learned Lots too
We had a fabulous time on this tour. Our tour guide was so much fun and also very informative. We learned all kinds of fun facts about the city, and loads about the history too. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and très animé, keeping us all engaged and interested. The limited group size of 12 also made us feel very safe. Highly recommend booking!

The best way to tour Quebec City!
Oct 2021
Annabelle is Quebec’s greatest Ambassador! We had booked only the night before but they were able to accommodate us easily. The group size was about 14 but she could easily be heard. She is a native of Quebec and has a tremendous knowledge of the city’s history. Our group did ask questions and she knew most of our answers!
The city is on a hill, so they start at the top of the hill beside the Chateau Frontenac and spiral down catching a huge amount in the tour. It is listed as a 2 hr tour but plan on having 3 hrs free. She was not slow, but made it a point not to rush through the presentations and it was closer to 2hr 45. We tipped her well! I would do the tour again with her WHEN I return to Quebec. It is a beautiful city.

Fantastic Walking Tour with Jocelyn!
Oct 2021
We had a most enjoyable 2.5 hour walking tour with Jocelyne B. She was knowledgeable, charming, enthusiastic, responsive and a really good facilitator - what a truly great way to explore the city. We learned more about Canadian history in 2 hrs than in our formative education! We even ended up googling a number of the events and facts she told us about to learn more once we returned to our accommodations. Very memorable and very worthwhile. The walk is not arduous and there is a lot of standing and walking short distances at a conversational pace, then stopping and talking before carrying on again, so this isn't a tough go and was quite manageable for all of us.
