The tours I do:
The Grand Tour and private walking tours of Old Québec as well as bus tours, for Quebec City and the surrounding country side including the island of Orleans, the Montmorency falls and the Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré basilica.
My favorite anecdote:

I traveled all the continents either for pleasure or for work
Before being a guide:
I enjoyed a forty years career in international affairs.
Why did I become a guide?
I settled in Québec after retiring and quickly fell in love with the city. Seeking to keep active I became a guide. Through guiding, I manage to increase my knowledge of the city and share it with visitors.
I my tours, I like to focus on:
When giving a tour, I challenge myself to give an as comprehensive and as coherent as possible presentation of today’s Québec city based on its history and on the people who have made it the beautiful city that it is. As far as possible, I try to make links with our visitor’s own perspective.
