The tours I do:

The Grand Tour of Old Quebec; private tours on foot or by car, as well as group tours by bus. I like to discover both the old town and the surrounding area, i.e.: the tour of Île d'Orléans, the Montmorency Falls, the Côte de Beaupré including the Basilica of Ste-Anne de Beaupré.

Travel experiences:

My curiosity pushes me to go to the end of the roads, which led me to visit South Africa (5 countries), Argentina and Chile, Australia. I also like to discover the exoticism that certain countries can offer me, such as: Tibet, Nepal and India. We must not neglect the classic of Europe: France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Belgium and Holland. It's all well and good to travel around the world, but it's important to know your own country, so I visited Canada from coast to coast. And of course, I took the time to visit our neighbor to the south: the United States.

Occupations before being a guide:

I have spent my professional career in the representation of financial products. This allowed me to understand the needs of my clients and it is also an area in which I was able to develop my pleasure in communicating. In addition, at the end of my career, I am offered the pleasure of returning to university to complete a bachelor's degree in geography and sustainable tourism.

The reasons why I became a guide

I am a native of Lévis and I have always lived in the vicinity of Quebec. I find it an immense privilege to live in the region. I'm in love with Quebec City. My biggest wish with my clientele is that they love the city as much as I do at the end of our tour.

On what aspect I insist

The great courage of our pioneers remains an important aspect that I like to highlight, both for our first settlers, as well as for religious institutions and the King’s daughters.

Having a background in geography, I also like to integrate the geological aspects of our environment.

The particularities of our terroir represent our signature; I therefore like to insist on our agriculture and the fact that Quebec remains a gastronomic destination.

On the other hand, mainly for me, I try to understand the needs of my customers. I know that the material is heavy to integrate, so I want the visit to be fun and laughter.
