My Winter Walking Tour of Old Quebec is an introduction to local history, architecture and culture.

You'll learn about New France, the Conquest, the American revolution, the evolution of the city, the French-Canadians & Anglo-Canadians, the Quiet Revolution but also about the ice bridge and the Winter Carnaval for example.

You’ll discover Old Port, Petit Champlain (with Place royale & Batterie royale), the Château Frontenac, the City Hall, the Seminary, the Morrin Centre, the St John Gate and more. Itinerary is designed for Winter: less windy spots and some secrets to keep you warm.

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.

Full instructions how to dress appropriately when you book.

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!

Her skal du være

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.

The tour was great value for money. Xavier was on time with the schedule and i appreciated the tips on proper clothing which made me endured the 2 hour tour without freezing 😃 He was so knowledgeable and was patient and friendly in answering my questions. I also love the recommendations after the tour. Thank you so much

Great introduction to the heart of Quebec City! You will gain the history of all the key attractions of Old Quebec from the historical Quebecois perspective. Xavier was very knowledgeable, funny, open to answering questions and brought the history alive. He even provided toe warmers to place in our shoes before we braved the -18 cold for this tour! You will learn a lot and have some funny tidbits of Quebec history to share with your friends :)

Xavier was an amazingly competent, preparared, intelligent and quietly comedic guide, all of which made the tour of Quebec City enjoyable and informative on a day when the temperature was -15F. He was able to place the modern city of Quebec in the context of its fascinating history, both the good and bad. Xavier's grasp of the complicated religious and politcial stresses that forrmed Quebec made history come alive. Hence the tour was far more than a description of old buildings and battlefields but a walk down the memory lane of history that will not be easy to forget.

Nous avons passé un excellent moment en compagnie de Xavier. Il a une très grande connaissance historique de la ville de Québec. Il a vite su nous mettre à l'aise et a adapté le parcours à nos questions. Je recommande fortement!

This was our first trip to Quebec, so a tour of Old Quebec seemed like a good starting point. This tour with Xavier went far beyond my expectations. First, he sent a message before our January tour advising about the weather and how to dress. Excellent advice. Listen to him! The tour covered so much that helped me understand this unique and beautiful place - history, culture, and the land and the diversity of the people. I'm not big on guided tours but this one shouldn't be missed. It's given me a lot of ideas about how to spend the rest of my time here. Thank you, Xavier!
