What you'll do

The charm of Old Québec is more than its past, it's what moves it into the future! To start, your tour guide will greet you at a cozy local café to give you a lay of the land. (Come early to grab a warm drink!) Be prepared to be wowed by the narrow streets of Old Québec by exploring on foot, at a nice relaxed pace. As we walk along the massive city fortifications, we'll talk about how they made Quebec the stronghold of French North-America. We'll explore cobblestoned streets, pass centuries-old British & French architectural gems, and catch views of ships at its historical dock. We'll learn about the impressive Chateau Frontenac and why it has the most beautiful view on the Saint-Lawrence river. But Old Quebec is also new! We'll show you how the area has evolved over time and what is bringing locals back into the neighbourhood. We'll warm up inside in a state of the art library, beautifully renovated inside a historical concert hall. Québec has a lot of staircases, and we mean a lot! That's why we include a ticket to ride to the legendary funicular, which will take us down to the foundations of the city and its oldest neighbourhood. Enjoy a personalized experience - each guide has their own favourite spots & stories and will tailor their tour to you and the small group.

Shea & Diego

We both founded bike tour companies out of laneway garages 10 years ago, on different continents - Diego launched BA Bikes in Buenos Aires, and Shea launched Fitz & Follwell in Montreal & Quebec. We've combined our passion to offer top-notch bike & walking experiences here in Quebec City - the kind we look for when we go traveling ourselves. We'll show you the best art, architecture, urban development, nature, and local events & festivals, but we also aren't afraid to show you the grit, imperfections, and realities of what living in Quebec is like.

Where you'll be

First we'll meet in a local café and roasting house, then we'll go exploring! Secret cobblestone alleyways, local fortified pathways and majestic views await. Then we'll warm up in a library... not just any library! This one has an impressive contrast between old and new, a local favourite. From the opulent Chateau Frontenac we'll take a ride in the funicular all the way to Place Royale, surrounded by stunning 18th century French architecture!
