Thank you for choosing me as your local tour guide in the beautiful Quebec City. Here’s how to prepare to ensure you have the most memorable experience ever. Remember, a well-prepared tourist is a happy tourist!

Disclaimer: I’m a native French speaker. English is not my first language. I learned English at school, but I mostly learned it by watching The Simpsons and listening to rock/metal music. So, I might have made a few mistakes in this blog post. If I did, please tell me—it’s the best way for me to improve!

Here Are 5 Tips To Get Ready For An Amazing Walking Tour With Nomad Tours Québec!


Weather in Québec City can change quickly throughout the day. It is advised to check the day’s forecast and dress accordingly. For cold days of winter, make sure to wear a hat, warm gloves and 2 or 3 layers of clothing.

During the summer months, please make sure to wear comfortable clothing and on cloudy days, make sure to bring a umbrella or a rain jacket. The weather can change quickly here.

2-Shoes, shoes, and shoes!

Due to the cobblestone streets in Old Québec, it is very important to have proper footwear that gives you support. Being comfortable is more important than style! During summer, please wear good walking shoes (that means no heals!).

During the winter months, please, I beg you to wear insulated winter boots. Winter here is no jokes and warm winter boots are a must!


Are tours cancelled in case of bad weather (rain or snow)? No, your guide is not afraid of bad weather. Will you be visiting Quebec City during winter? Please watch this video made by my colleague and friend Evelyne and learn how to dress up for extremely cold winter temperature.

In this video, Evelyne will show you exactly how to Layer for an EXTREMELY cold winter.

During the summer months, it is wise to bring an umbrella or a rain jacket.

4-A suggestion

If the tour starts or ends in the lower-town, you may prepare $5CAN (each person) to pay for the Funicular. We can also take (or climb) the stairs and hill to get to the upper town but its very steep. The Funicular saves you the steep climb back up.

5-Ok. I’m at the meeting point. How do I recognize you?

I’m tall, have brown hair and always wear my blue and white tour guide license. To help you recognize me, here’s my picture!
