 Professional Local Guide

Walking around iconic buildings, public squares and archeological sites, revealing 400 years of history through people  and events.

Like a time traveler, discover the multi layers of history on buildings and city layout, revealing the footprint of the XVII century French urban plan which capitalized on the topography of Cap Diamond.  The Tour highlights architectural adaptations to the climate as well as the  trends, periods and strategies enabling Québec City to remain the only Walled City North of Mexico.

 

During this Tour, we will talk about the challenges of the first settlers confronted with the conditions of a subarctic climate. Isolated from their motherland for most of the year, they had to rely on the knowledge and generosity of the First Nations who shared and helped them learn and cope with the unfamiliar natural elements.
