Quebec City Walking Tour - Exploring French America


One-of-a-kind Old Quebec tour that traces back famous figures and institutions that shaped French North America from Acadia to Louisiana, and then from St. Louis up to the Pacific Northwest after the Louisiana Purchase.

Former capital of New France, Quebec City inevitably witnessed and played a role in the development of the continent. Quebec City’s French heritage can be observed and heard all over the historic district. Therefore, if many North America’s French settlements originate from Quebec City, it should be easy to find here and there imprints of those who set foot in the city. You will see, symbols of historic significance are everywhere - statues, plaques, residences, streets, religious estates - and they give us the opportunity to tell you the history, once important or still alive, of French-speaking North America.

  • Tour lasts 2.5 hours.
  • $200 CAD for your group of 1 to 6 participants. Sales taxes are NOT included.
  • All private tours can be customized to your needs.

Meeting point: your Hotel in Old Quebec, or any other location of the Historic District we agree upon.
