Wat je gaat doen

Discover the history of Quebec City and Canada as you walk with us in Old Quebec Upper Town, a UNESCO world heritage site. We will go in busy streets, off the beaten track and we will travel in time as far as the 17th century.

We'll tackle major themes such as colonization, wars between empires or the Quiet Revolution and Quebec separatism. We will talk about architecture too, and food naturally. Of course you can count on us to tell you a few anecdotes that make this experience so interesting.

You'll see the highlights of the Upper Town, such as the Château Frontenac, the cathedrals, the city hall, the Price building, the Parlement and at least one fancy gate. You'll see countless of old & beautiful residential buildings and many fascinating monuments.

Thanks to this introductory guided tour, you will have a better understanding of modern Quebec society, you will know how to orient yourself in Old Quebec and you will better appreciate this magnificent city of Quebec.

We'll start nearby the Château Frontenac and we'll end in front of the Parlement.

Check weather forecast and dress appropriately. We provide the tour rain or shine.

We're going to walk approximately 2km (1,24 miles), during 2h.

Passionate about history since I know how to read (very recently of course), it is always with great pleasure that I introduce Old Quebec to travelers as well as rooted locals.

I try to be informative and entertaining by using little stories to explain history.

I'm a professional guide since several years now, providing mostly private tours that I tailor live. I constantly learn thanks to conferences & books.

My colleagues working with me are as passionate as I am and are all licensed tour guides like me. Yes... it's all legit! ^^

This is an above and beyond tour. Principally, Xavier is very knowledgeable about the topic, and always had an answer for the 1.000.000 questions I asked through the course of the tour. The price you pay for the very well organized historical information you get is a REAL DEAL! This experience definetely set the base for such meaningful trip a Ville de Quebec. If you, dear searcher are reading this, please look no more and book your spot for his tour - Xavier is your guy!

We got a private tour for our family with Xavier today. Even before the tour I had contacted him for sightseeing suggestions & things to do around QC. He was very prompt and suggested very good places including hidden gem, Beaupot Basilica. He was able to relate historical/political point of views with great details. I would suggest everyone to take his tour when in Quebec City.

If your contemplating between this guide with Xavier, or one with a bigger company, Xavier is the right choice. With Xavier we had the opportunity to experience the most popular tourist attractions, but also explored locations off the beaten path. His tour includes a plethora of history hacks that help you understand your surroundings for when you continue exploring alone. We learned how to differentiate between stones and time periods, how to tell if they were built by the English or French. Xavier helped us by informing us future sight seeing opportunities, told us of local coffee shops and breweries, and described places to see different styles of architecture. The tour itself was personal, engaging and thought provoking. The walk was comfortable, with barely any up hill treks. The tour was worth every penny and great value for money. I recommend this tour to anyone that wants a genuine and local experience. I feel much more confident continuing our trip by foot with our new knowledge of Quebec City layout.

This tour is a most if u are visiting quebec. I had the benefit of been the only one on this tour and it was quite an experience. Xavier is really an expert on the subject and could answer all my questions. He also made the experience fun and he gave a neutral opinion/perspective (because he is french) and from a QC perspective (because his wife is from QC).
