Quebec, Canada

New France to the Conquest & Beyond

with Paul D.

Paul D.

French explorer and military man Samuel de Champlain established Quebec City in 1608, twelve years before the Mayflower voyage to the Colony of Virginia.

After a little more than 150 years, New France fell to the English in 1759 in a pivotal battle that helped determine the eventual foundation of Canada.

Explore the first habitation of Champlain in and around the quaint Place Royal in Quebec's lower town. Then, after an exhilarating stroll to the upper town, see the famous Plains of Abraham and how the battle was fought.

Finally, visit the the present day Parliament of Quebec, its gardens, fountain and history - the culmination of over 400 years of Quebec City history.

This itinerary can be modified according to your interests and priorities. Please communicate with me for more details and made-to-measure tour.

Children 17 years and younger are FREE when accompanied by a scheduled adult.

The climb to the upper town can be facilitated by using the Funiculaire, a cable-rail tram that brings you up the 45 degree cliff face ($2.25 extra fee payable to service provider).

Funiculaire or no, this itinerary requires a fair amount of walking and stairs so, as a minimum, fair to good physical form is recommended as is good footwear.
