    What to Expect
    While docked at the Port of Quebec, get to know Old Québec City and its top attractions on this educational and entertaining walking tour. The adventure begins in the Upper Town district, following a leisurely downhill path from beginning to end. Meet the tour guide and the rest of the group and enjoy an ongoing commentary of interesting facts and stories about this historic Canadian city. Learn about the past and present and get a glimpse into the future of Québec City, a UNESCO World Heritage site, while walking along from one location to the next.

    Explore Old Québec, the historic heart of French Canada and the capital of the province of Québec, with its narrow streets, stone buildings and European feel. Learn about the city's history and culture while strolling past attractions, like the Fortifications of Québec. See and learn about the important function of the city walls from centuries ago and gain a better understanding of the defense system of North America's only remaining fortified city. Québec City is the only walled city north of Mexico. 

    There’s also the Citadelle of Québec, an active military installation and official residence of both the Canadian monarch and the Governor General of Canada; Notre-Dame-des-Victoires Church, one of the oldest stone churches in Canada that stands on the very spot where Québec began; Place Royale, often referred to as the birthplace of French America and many more.

    The tour ends near the Old Quebec Funicular. It truly is a fun and fast way to get to know Old Québec City and the many amazing attractions it offers.

    We had a great tour with Guy. There were only about 8 people in our tour so it was easy to hear him and follow him around. The tour was informative and well laid out throughout the city.

    All the tours leave from the city centre in front of Hotel Frontenac. I would just walk there, there was public parking at the Hilton - about a 10-15 minute walk for me.
