Utakachofanya

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 17th century.

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 nearby the Château Frontenac 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! ^^

This was our favorite thing we did while in Quebec! Xavier was knowledgeable, funny, friendly, engaging, entertaining and considerate throughout the entire tour. The route was thoughtfully planned out; stopping at monuments that guided us through the timeline of Quebec’s history and making it easy to follow along. We really enjoyed the thoughtful perspective he shared on all parts of Quebec’s history and culture and hope to tour with him again next time we visit Quebec!

Although I was the only one on the tour, Xavier was very generous with his time and wealth of information about the history of Québec. As we walked around and spotted numerous statues and historical sites, he went into great detail about the early history, like during the 17th century when the French settlers were just tradesmen and why they relied on the indigenous population as business partners. He talked about the construction history of Château Frontenac. And he also went over the modern period of Québec from the Quiet Revolution to today. Additionally, there were plenty of times he allowed me to sit down on the tour and soak up the view. So, all in all, the tour gave me a better appreciation of the city. And I would recommend his tour even if this is your second time here! There is so much to learn!:)

I’d highly recommend booking a tour with Xavier! He is so personable and informative and it didn’t feel like 2 hours of walking. Definitely a good idea to book with him if you’re visiting Quebec City

Did the walking tour with Xavier first thing after reaching Quebec city, and it turned out to be a great decision. His tour provided the historical and cultural context for everything I saw in the city for the rest of my stay. Xavier is a fantastic and very knowledgeable storyteller.
