Visit Quebec City highlights with plenty of time to stop for photos

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.

Great 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.

Amazing and Informative Tour by Robert!
Aug. 2020
Our private tour led by Robert was great! Robert took us to all of the important stops around Quebec, and answered all of our questions. He was funny and made the whole tour very enjoyable. He answered all of our questions, took us for a mid-tour coffee stop, and shared some of his fondest memories of Old Quebec. It was my first time visiting Old Quebec and I'm happy I was able to learn so much about its' history. I will definitely be back to Old Quebec in the future, and I would tell anyone who wants to learn about the city to take this tour! Thanks Robert!!!

Richard meets the Rocket
My wife and I decided on a private tour to avoid crowds and noise. We were assigned Richard as our tour guide. Richard etait parfait. English...Richard was perfect. His knowledge of the city and it’s glorious history was magnificent.

We were shown the detail and pain staking time our ancestors put into every statue, monument and buildings.

There are not enough words for me to thank Richard, whom met the Rocket on an ice rink shooting a Grecian formula commercial in the 70’s.

To Richard, Merci. Personal touch to your magnificent city was excellent, exactly what we were looking for.

Highlight of our visit!
Nov. 2019
We had a wonderful holiday in Quebec City, but our absolute favorite was our private walking tour with Jocelyn of Tours Voir Quebec.
We prefer private tours when possible - although a greater financial investment, we have found the engagement with someone who has a passion for sharing the history and culture of their city and has the flexibility to spend time on the things that we find interesting and amazing adds so much to our travel experience.
This was certainly the case with our tour with Jocelyn. Her love and knowledge of Old Quebec City is obvious. She squeezed so much into our time together! We are still amazed at how much we learned about the cultural history - absolutely fascinating.
She was so patient with our many questions, and patient as well with our interest in the many different styles of architecture. She was most generous with her time and her knowledge.
We would absolutely recommend Tours Voir, and Jocelyn in particular, as a wonderful was to begin any visit to Quebec City.

Excellent
Great walking tour of old Quebec. Lasted about 2 hours. Not strenuous except for anyone who has trouble with long staircases. Learned so much of the history of Quebec. Our tour guide was excellent, taking time to explain and keep the entire group(about 12 of us) engaged. Great way to learn the old city, then go off on your own to your points of interest.

Quebec City girlfriends retreat
Oct. 2019 • Friends
We booked a private tour for the 4 of us. Maryse was our guide and she was fantastic. We saw everything we wanted and she had personal stories and recommendations that really made it feel we were visiting a friend who was playing tour guide. It was a good pace and we saw the old city and the lower town along with galleries, antiques, shopping and good places to great crepes. Over 15k steps! All my girlfriends agreed, best money spent! Highly recommend especially if this is the first time in this beautiful city.
