Old Quebec City Walking Tour

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!

I wish we could remember our wonderful guide's name! She was so full of knowledge & love for her city. After this walking tour, we felt very comfortable exploring the old city a little more on our own. Definitely recommend this excursion!

Reviewer: Wendy Davis
Our tour guide Louise was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a group of 15. The size of the group together with the sheer number of people visiting Quebec, meant that the tour was a bit slower than it might have been, however it was great and Louise kept us all together. Very interesting.

We had a very nice woman who was very knowledgable. She broke our group in two so that we were a smaller group and could hear better.
