Quebec City Walking Tour

Highlights

  • Experiencing Quebec City with a guide means you’ll see and understand more

  • Visit pedestrian-only sites in the heart of the historic city

  • Follow a gentle, downhill-only route from Upper Town to Lower Town

  • Finish by the Old Quebec Funicular, which links Lower Town and Upper Town

Summary

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.
