Det skal I lave

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! ^^

Thoughtful and well put together, much better than just dates and places. Xavier made sure to check regularly to see if we were enjoying ourselves.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Quebec City Upper Town walking tour with Xavier. The information sent up front was helpful and we appreciated his recommendations - the communication was excellent. His stories were great and although both my husband and I have been to Quebec City many times we were introduced to a few new spots, stories and themes. We highly recommend this tour.

If you want a personable and knowledgeable guide (teacher) to take you around Quebec City upper town to learn about the history of the city, look no further - Xavier is your guy. I thoroughly enjoy his tour. He also gave excellent restaurants recommendations. We went to one of his recommended bakery cafe and had an amazing lunch.

Very glad we did this tour! We wanted a refresher on our Canadian history and Xavier delivered that and more. Added a lot to our appreciation of the city and understanding of Quebec culture. The pace was very easy and we didn't walk far (we might have preferred more walking but understand he has to accommodate all ages and abilities). Thank you & we highly recommend!
