We start on the side of the Parlement of Quebec and end the historical guided tour nearby the famous Château Frontenac. On the way, you'll learn more about the women who made Quebec City (and Lévis), their reality, their struggles and their legacy.

It is definitely a unique and original way to discover Old Quebec!

I'm a professional tour guide in Quebec City since couple of years. I mostly provide private tours and I currently try to provide thematic tours open to everyone and more affordable than my tailored private tours.

I like to go off the beaten path and I thought it could be very interesting to focus on women history, which is not well known. A local historian helped to build this tour dedicated to the history of the women in Quebec City and I'm very proud to be the only one to offer such guided tour.

The tour starts on the side of the Parlement and the we go to Old Quebec Upper Town, inside the fortifications. We'll see the highlights (but with a focus on women) and we'll also go off the beaten path.

I'll use mostly statues and building to talk about nuns, business women, women in politics, art, etc. Some are famous, most are unknown or anonymous.

This is a unique tour! Xavier is very passionate and knowledgeable. A wonderful experience for me and my two friends! The two hours flew by and we experienced many less known parts of Quebec City. Thank you!!

This is such a unique way of seeing and exploring the city. Xavier is knowledgeable and you can tell he enjoys giving this tour. This tour is well researched and allows you to experience the city and Quebecs history through a different lens. Definitely a tour that shows a different lens of the unknown history of Quebec City. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Learning about the role of significant women, both known and unknown, in the establishment of Quebec City both in historical times and those years not so long ago was very interesting as well as inspiring. Although Quebec City is well known for the it's rich history, very little has ever been told about the women that contributed to its growth or culture. Given the recent shameful acknowledgement of Indigenous treatment, hearing information on figures such as Marie L'Incarnation who made sincere efforts to transform children's lives through education was very interesting. This tour is not just about women for women, it is a tour that provides a more balanced overview of how things were and the resiliency of people.

A really unique and interesting way to see and explore Quebec. Xavier has a wonderful way of drawing your attention to things that are important to the history of the city that would otherwise be overlooked. The tour focused on how women have shaped the foundations of the city and its society, as well as focusing on some exemplary individuals. A thoughtful, insightful tour that’s enjoyable for anyone.

Book this. Having experienced well over 300 tours across 4 continents Xavier is by far the most passionate, knowledgeable and innovative tour guide I have ever toured with. Myself and 3 of my daughters came from the experience with both knew information and a desire to continue with independent research on topics that came from the tour. Be sure to ask about genealogy tours if you are of Quebecois heritage.
