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.

Rejeanne was a wonderful guide! We had already been in Quebec City for a few days (book early - I couldn't get a tour until Sunday after arriving on Friday), and she adjusted her tour to take into account what we had already seen in depth. She was very knowledgeable about the city and its history, but kept it pithy and never lost the interest of me, my husband or our 16 year old. She moved at our pace, and leaned into our areas of interest. I highly recommend the private tour - in a city like Quebec with so much history, you get to hear and experience it all without many people crowding around you in a small space.

We highly recommend Louise of toursvoirquebec who gave us an excellent 3 hour guided walking tour of Old Quebec City and brought the place alive with her knowledge of the town and all its history and human stories. She was able to answer all our questions and keep us all interested - she also gave us helpful recommendations for restaurants and shopping. The time whizzed by and we could have gone on for hours more!

Marie (Maria?) was outstanding. She is one of the best tour guides we have ever had. You can tell she really loves the city and is an expert about its history. She was able to answer any question that we asked her and was professional and polite. She showed us wonderful parts of the city and we learned so much about the founding of Quebec.

While the tour guide was kind, she did not provide a cohesive tour. She rambled from stopping point to stopping point without giving us proper history and in-depth knowledge of the site or context to the overall city history . I could have just as easily read a tour book to gain the same information. I expect tours to provide more interesting and in-depth information. I also expect a history timeline of the city. I did not gain any of that.

Bonjour, we are very sad that you did not enjoy your tour with us. We ask our guides to always go beyond the simple description of guide books and we are convinced that is what they do. In order for us to do a proper follow up, is it possible to communicate with us in order to give more information about your guide, please? Either by email at info@voirquebec.ca or by phone at 1-866-694-2001. Thank you!

Marie was a wonderful tour guide. She is broadly knowledgeable about the history of Quebec and able to tell that story in a clear and cohesive fashion as we walked through the old city. She was always eager to listen to and answer tour questions and was also made many wonderful connections that we would have missed if we were on our own. She knows quite a lot about architectural styles and we particularly enjoyed her observations about the differences between early French and English architectural styles and how those reflected different approaches to domestic life. Her deep personal connections to the city were evident throughout the tour, most especially when we stopped at the school she had attended and where, prompted by us (both retired school administrators) told us stories about the school's history and gave us a tour of its chapel. All in all: a fascinating tour with a premiere guide.

Often, when travelling abroad, we do walking tours to get introduced to an area and learn its history. We decided that would be a good way to start out our stay in Quebec City with a private tour and update our knowledge of Canadian and Québécois history. We spent 2 1/2 hours with our lovely guide, Marie. She filled us in on the history and also life in Quebec City. She was very accommodating and constantly checked to ensure we were comfortable with our pace and happy with everything we did. It was a really enjoyable way to spend our first morning and get us off to a good start for our time in Quebec. As we are seniors, Marie was able to work with us to provide for a nicely paced, informative tour

MAY 1st visit. Francis was a wonderful guide: attentive to our wants and needs, informative and fun. We were a tough audience as I am a tour guide as well in another city and my boyfriend had no interest in doing this tour.
It ended with him being impressed with everything he learned and me having nothing but good things to say. Highly recommend this company.

Having a private tour was the perfect way to explore the city at our own pace and learn so much about the city’s history. Our guide Dominique was so knowledgeable and passionate and shared so many facts and stories throughout the tour! We never would have experienced so much without a guide. Thoroughly enjoyed our walk!

If you plan on going to Quebec City do not skip this walking tour! Its a great way to start off your sight seeing experience. You will find little parts of the city skipped by most and all of the larger attractions as well. You will learn so much about the history and architecture. You will also hear of some great food stops, and become familiar with where things are located. Our tour guide was impressive with her knowledge of the city and of history. This is in the heart of Old Quebec. I went last weekend and I am going back asap! I feel I can go alone now, with the knowledge I gained from the tour and do my own thing. Its absolutely breathtaking! GO! You will never regret visiting this "city" that is really more like an old village....or taking the tour.

This was a great introduction to Quebec City. We learned so much about the history from our knowledgeable guide. Take it early into your visit to the city so that you’ll learn what sites you want to see. This tour was worth every penny!
