Tour Details

The cradle of French civilization in North America and the only walled city north of Mexico, Quebec City and its ramparts are home to a myriad of treasures that will delight you.

In the company of a professional Quebec guide, this Old Quebec City walking tour will take you through all the important sites of one of the oldest European settlements in North America. You will meander next to Quebec's historical sites, such as the Citadel/Musee Royal 22e Regiment. Located on Cape Diamant, the Citadel (which is also called the Gibraltar of the Americas) is a national historic monument and an official residence of the Governor General.

You will also walk by the Chasteau Frontenac, which holds the Guinness World Record's title of "most photographed hotel in the world." Although several of Quebec City's buildings are taller, the landmark hotel is perched atop a tall cape overlooking the St. Lawrence River, affording a spectacular view for several kilometers. The building is the most prominent feature of the Quebec City skyline as seen from across the St. Lawrence.

You will also spend time at the Place-Royale. Often referred to as the birthplace of French America, the Place-Royale is a small square with a big history. Samuel de Champlain chose this site to construct a trading post in 1608. It grew throughout the 17th and 18th centuries to become a bustling town marketplace and the heart of business and industry in Quebec City. Located in Quebec's picturesque Lower Town, the historic plaza is now a lively social center and a very popular visitor attraction.

This tour is one of the best ways to see this beautiful city and uncover a few hidden Quebec City sites!

Reviewer: Rosa Werner
We loved the walking tour in Quebec. The guide tour is a very knowledge person in history to explain us the details of how this city was built. We walk at a good pace and stop for explanations. It was pleasant and we did not finish tired. We had a great time and we recommend 100 percent this tour.

Really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide made everything very interesting. He not only showed us the history, but also informed us on what it is like to live in Quebec City. The instructions said to take a taxi from the ship, but if you are healthy enough to take a walking tour then you are healthy enough to walk to the meeting location. I would suggest that they give instructions for this option also.

Reviewer: Christie Stevens
Our guide was excellent. He was very eager to show off his city and share his family's part is the history of Quebec City. He maintained a brisk pace and we covered a lot of ground but he also stopped frequently to talk about what we were seeing or talk about the history of Quebec City. Everyone in our group was able to keep up. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk a couple of miles.
