Overview
Best must-do experience for Americans visiting Quebec City; In-depth and fun historical overview you can relate to; Exclusive access to a private lounge for breaks / snacks; Convenient meeting point: your hotel in Old Quebec. Many Americans do not know to what a great extent American and Canadian history are intertwined, and thus our tour focuses on the ties that link these two countries. Do you know the link between French-speaking Canada and YOUR part of the continent? There is no better place to study these connections than in beautiful Quebec City. Our tour examines how early French settlers, the French & Indian War, the Boston Tea Party, the American Revolution, the Louisiana Purchase, the War of 1812 and the American Civil War shaped Quebec and Canada. During this 3-hour walking tour, we will explore sites in both the Upper Town and Lower Town, sites that highlight the significant role played by Quebec City in the history of North America and in the creation of modern Canada.
