Quebec: Self-Guided Driving Audio Tour App

2. Quebec: Self-Guided Driving Audio Tour App

Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app, which will function as your personal tour guide, audio tour, and map. Purchase one tour per car, not per person. Everyone listens together! Note: This 17+mile-long tour covers the essentials of Quebec City in 3-4 hours. Once we have done that we can begin our tour of Quebec City from the parking area directly across from Parc Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde. From there we'll drive along the Saint Lawrence River until we reach the Petit Champlain area. Dating back to the 17th century, this historic district is the oldest shopping district in North America! Next up will be the Place Royale where we will learn about the French King Louis XIV and his peculiar contribution to the flourishing of what was known as New France. Driving through Old Quebec, we will get to know the different sections of the City and understand why the settlers chose to build it in the way they did. It will be impossible to miss the gorgeous City Hall which combines the Second Empire and the Chateau architectural styles into something which is truly amazing. Then we will come across the Morrin Centre which today is the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec but in actual fact was originally the first prison in Quebec. Continuing onwards, we will drive along the fortifications erected in the early 1800s to protect against possible invasion by the United States of America. These walls are the main reason Quebec was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Looking ahead, we will see the stunning Chateau Frontenac which is the most iconic building in Quebec. It is the largest and most luxurious Hotel in the City and the most imposing architecturally. After this we will see the Cathedral Basilica Notre-Dame de Quebec and the Holy Trinity, two of the earliest churches in the City of Quebec.   Heading on to Parliament Hill, we will discover the beautiful Parliament building which honors the figures integral to Quebec's founding. Progressing on, we will arrive at the sprawling park known as the Plaines d'Abraham where we will come to an overlook which it would be impossible not to photograph. From here we will be able to see La Citadelle, a fortress built in the 1820s to defend the City from invaders. Moving on, we will pass by the Musee Des Beaux Arts, home to more than 38,000works of art. Beyond that will be the Terasse Grey where British and French armies battled in 1759. Finally, we will drive down La Grande-Allee, a truly lovely avenue lined with shops, restaurants and cafes.   Our tour will conclude back on Parliament Hill just a short distance from where we began.

3. Quebec City: Historic District Walking Tour (3h)

This tour will show you the most important parts of the Historic District of Old Quebec, which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1985. Starting with the first nations, we'll go through the history of the city with the arrival of the first French settlers, the creation of the Royal colony of New France, the emergence of Quebec City as capital of British North America, the creation of the Dominion of Canada, leading to the contemporary era. Almost 500 years of history! Having studied and work for almost 15 years inside the old city walls, I'll take you to see hidden gems off the normal tourist path. You'll understand why the "Quartier latin" is my favourite area of the city. Of course, I'll give you great recommendation for food, but I'll also warn you all the tourist traps you should always avoid, such as a terrible restaurant that serves a "rosé" mixing red and white wines leftovers…!

Our tour with Tommy Byrne was excellent. Very knowledgeable on the questions we asked concerning the items on the tour and the history surrounding them. Was one of the highlights of our trip to Quebec city. Would highly recommend taking this tour.

It’s a great way to explore if you want to walk around yourself. It only really explained the French v British battle, so didn’t get too much more context about the city. But it was a nice way to spend some time.

The questions are not always easy and it pushes us to visit the city from a new perspective! I can't wait for the next one!!!

Tommy was a superb historian, who brought depth to the history and discussion around Quebec and the area

The activity is interesting but we had to go through some challenges due to construction.
