Overview
Filled with narrow lanes and pedestrian-only streets, the historic center of Quebec City is best explored on foot. This guided walking tour ensures you won’t miss the details that make the city so fascinating. Take advantage of Quebec City’s layout by following a downhill route from beginning to end, as a guide shares stories from the fortified city that’s the beating heart of French Canada.
What to Expect

Make your way to a central location in Quebec City’s Upper Town, and then join your guide for a small-group tour of the historic center—a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Set out on foot to running commentary on the modern-day culture and long history of Quebec City, passing stone buildings with a distinctly European feel. You’ll see the Fortifications of Quebec, and learn the important role that the city walls once played.

Pass La Citadelle de Quebec (Quebec Citadel), an active military installation and the official residence of the Canadian monarch, then take in Notre Dame des Victoires—one of the oldest stone churches in Canada.

Cross Place Royale, often called the birthplace of French America, and wrap up the tour near the base of the Old Quebec Funicular, where you can hop a ride back up to the Upper Town without retracing your steps uphill.

Our favourite part of the trip

We had a wonderful time on this tour. François was entertaining, kind, and knowledgeable. We opted for the shorter tour (2h30) rather than the longer one (4h) but we would happily have done the longer one. Definitely recommended.

Great walking tour ... even in the blowing rain!

Mike was a great guide and not only oriented us to the old city, but to the history of Quebec as well ... French, English, and Canadian. It was rainy and cold, but still informative and fun.
