What you'll do

A historical guided tour is always the best way to discover a city, its history and its architecture. Old Quebec is definitely a fascinating old city to discover... but Winter is cold. Colder than you could imagine. For that reason, I made an itinerary adapted to the cold season : less windy spots, some warm breaks inside buildings and some secrets to keep you warm. My Winter Walking Tour of Old Quebec is an introduction to local history and architecture, but it's Winter and therefore I'll focus a little bit on this season. Its impact on architecture, history and culture. You'll learn about New France, the Conquest, the American revolution, the evolution of the city, the French-Canadians & Anglo-Canadians, but also about the ice bridge and the Winter Carnaval for example. Finally, you'll discover a quaint city where every street corner is a postcard. Yes, you can enjoy a 2h walking tour in Old Quebec, from November to March, without losing a frozen toe, without frost bite. Nota bene : if you would like a tour in French, please contact me (Tours Accolade Quebec), I could add a tour in French. For Spanish, a colleague can provide a private tour.

Your hosts

I'm a professional guide in Quebec City since several years. I mostly provide tailored private tours for American and Canadian travellers. I know Old Quebec like my pocket and I'm also able to guide in less known neighbourhoods like St Roch, St Jean Baptiste, Old Lévis or even in Old Lauzon. Of course I still provide private tours and during the high season I schedule thematic tours (military history, women's history, off the beaten path). I'm happy to work with some of the best tour guides in Quebec City. All my co-hosts are certified, passionate and skilled guides. Marie-Pierre: former scout, she mostly provide private tours and enjoys photography. Ask her for the best spots to take pictures! Pierre: from Old Lévis, he guides for years here. He has many fun stories to share and speaks Italian too!

Where you'll be

We'll start INSIDE the Musée de la Civilisation, warm, charming and interesting place for an introduction. After spending some time in Old Port, we'll go towards Petit Champlain, the quaintest neighbourhood of Quebec City. We'll go to Upper Town. On the way, we'll see the Château Frontenac (outside only). In Upper Town, we'll discover the area between the Post Office and the Price building, maybe more depending on the itinerary of the day.
