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 1600s.

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 in front of the statue dedicated to pioneers 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! ^^

Highly highly recommend his tour, we had an exceptional experience with Xavier! His wealth of knowledge, passion for his job, history, and culture made the tour very enjoyable. He will put 1000% effort into answering the most random or trivial questions that you may have. The tour will definitely broaden your perspectives of the past, present, and future. We'll definitely look for another of his tours next time we visit the area.

This was really a great experience! I learned so much about not only Québec, but Canadian history in general. Xavier has so much knowledge and makes sure to personalise the tour. I really recommend booking this tour!

Merci à Xavier pour sa visite du Haut Québec. Visite très intéressante, avec beaucoup d'Histoire et d'anecdotes pour découvrir la ville et ses habitants, de la conquête à nos jours.

Xavier was a really great tour guide. We learned a ton about the history of Quebec City, and he even personalized some of the facts based on where people were from and their last names (if they were relevant ie had family from the province). He took the time to ask questions and get to know everyone before starting the tour, which was really nice. Would definite recommend for anyone interested in brushing up on their Canadian history while taking a walk around a beautiful town!

Xavier is as talented as he is passionate about tour guiding. His knowledge and stories are relayed in a transparent yet in depth manner, which makes for a highly recommendable way to explore Quebec City!

My husband and I had a wonderful time exploring with Xavier. He is a thoughtful and passionate storyteller. He knows so much about the history and provided thoughtful answers to all of our questions. Had we had more time in Quebec, we would have booked an additional private tour with Xavier. Must visit experience! Thank you Xavier for your time and expertise.
