Old Quebec with a Photo walking tour

Quebec City, Quebec, Canada

Experience hosted by Arthur

  1. 2.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English and French

What you'll do

Arm yourself with your favourite camera or phone and off we go to explore the side streets and byways of our 400-year-old city. We'll take our time so everyone can discover their own perspectives and take unique images. I'll be there to provide ideas and guidance to help improve your approach to outdoor photography. During the roughly three-hour tour, we'll have time to stop and maybe grab a café or a croissant, visit the market or chat with the local artists on the rue de Trésor, our famous outdoor art street.
The emphasis is on the artistic and cultural life of Quebec which inevitably includes some of the best historic sites that are part of the DNA of the city. We'll also see how old and new architecture can live harmoniously side by side.
The tour route is flexible, depending on your interests and the festivities in busy Quebec, however we'll always see the highlights.
Limited to a maximum of 10 people, everyone is assured of receiving individual coaching.
At the end of our visit, we'll share each other's best photos and moments of the day.
Please note we will avoid the larger hills and depending on the route, we'll take the Funiculaire if necessary.
Other things to note
The tour route will be adapted to the walking ability of the group, but if we go up the steepest hill, you'll have the option to take the Funiculaire, the outdoor elevator that costs $3.50

Arthur was a great tour guide with a wealth of knowledge that surpassed our expectations. He was funny and also very knowledgeable of the sites and the history. We were particular happy with how he tailored the tour for us. Taking us to the nurses hospital museum because Crystal is a nurse was a great touch. Also great to talk to. Overall we had an amazing experience with Arthur and would tour with him again in a heartbeat. He also has some wonderful art that he does that you should check out as well.

Arthur was very nice and informative, he was also vey kind to offer to pick me up as I didn’t have a car. He shared few options before we started the tour to customize based on my preferences. We ended up driving to tourist spots and we stop for photos and history talk so i was able to see more He also shared some good restaurants suggestions and places to explore on my own during my stay in Quebec. We shared interest in photography and he gave me few tips on how to take better photos. I had a pleasant experience with Arthur and I would definitely recommend the tour with him.

I had the opportunity go on a tour with Arthur when visiting Quebec. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make it amazing and highly customized to my interests. We discussed on the phone of things to do and I met Arthur waiting for me in his car. We drove around, discussed North-American history, took many pictures with lots of helpful suggestions from a local Artist who also was my guide, it was pretty cold on the day and driving in a car was helpful to make the most of the time. I highly recommend taking this tour. Thank you and hope you enjoy!

You must have Arthur take you on a tour! I highly recommend spending an afternoon with him. He was really flexible and as it was pretty chilly outside he offered to drive me. He showed me parts of the city that I wouldn’t have known to go on my own. It was the best way for me to wrap up my trip to Quebec City. Arthur gave me an insight into Quebec City, beautiful locations to visit in the province and some of the matters that are affecting the city economically. It was beyond what I expected. I saw Quebec City through a different lens and he even drove me to Cap- Tourmente. Don’t forget to ask Arthur to show you his art, it is worth it! This tour was the highlight of my time spent in Quebec City!
