What I Do

I am a Québec City tour guide. I explain the history, the architecture, and the vibrant culture of this beautiful city to the tourists who come here. I have to admit, though, that the city itself does most of the work. It is, in my opinion, the most beautiful in all of North America.

I also teach others the arts and knowledge necessary to be a guide for the city. In order to be a guide, one needs a license from city hall. And to have the license, a year of coursework is required at one of two accredited colleges in town. I teach at Collège Mérici. I turn lovers of Québec City into licensed experts on it. It is a responsibility that I take very seriously. Quebecers are proud of their city – they have reason to be – and the fact that I am trusted to train its first-line ambassadors honors me greatly.
