5 tips for Quebec City

I’m 100% sure you want to get the most out of your trip (and your guided tour) in Quebec City. A prepared tourist, is a good tourist! Here are 5 tips for Quebec City from my tool box I prepared for you to help you plan your stay here. Enjoy!

1-Write down my phone number somewhere and bring it with you

Your smart phone may not work here in Quebec City and you can be out of data. Grab a good old pen and a piece of paper and write down my phone number. You never know what can happen on the day of the tour so it might be useful! You can also write down information about our meeting point and the time of our tour.

2-Learn some basic french

Yes, you’ll have to face it. Quebec City is 95% French speaking. But that doesn’t mean we do not speak English! In most restaurants and shops in the Old City, people will be happy to have a conversation with you in Shakespeare’s language. However, never take for granted that a Québécois speaks English. We all had to learn English in school and, for most of us, we never speak English at home. Just a little Bonjour and Merci makes a HUGE difference and people will love your English accent!

I really like Mark’s videos and I believe he does a great job here at giving good basic French expressions.

3-Look at these wonderful posts I prepared for you on my blog

I have made these blog posts about Traditional Quebec food and another one about my favorite restaurants, bars and pubs around Quebec City. Enjoy!

Traditional food of Quebec is as rich, vibrant and diverse as the province itself. The strongest influences on traditional Quebec cuisine come from France, British and Ireland.
