Quebec City Christmas Magic: Guided Walking Tours of Old Quebec

One of the most magical places in North America during the Christmas holidays is Quebec City. C'est bon! And a most fun and entertaining way to see it is with Cicerone's Christmas Walk Tour. The two-hour tour is led by a historical figure garbed in authentic attire from New France. You'll walk through Old Quebec and the Quartier Petit-Champlin district with all its colorful holiday decor -- plus learn more about the 400-year history of the city and how local Christmas traditions evolved in Quebec City.

The tour is given in both French and English every Saturday and Sunday during the month of December -- plus daily from Dec. 24, 2011 through Jan. 2, 2012. Meet at Hotel du Vieux Quebec (1190, rue St. Jean) at 11 AM for the French tour and 1:30 PM for the English tour. Rates are $21.95 CAD for ages 13 and up, children are free.

I had two great photo tours in France, one in the night and the other in the daytime. I learned a great deal about photography as well as how to identify a picture in a scene, composition, and camera settings. David tuned right into me and my skill level and knew how to teach me what I most needed to learn. He was wonderful, even taking a subway to a hardware store in order to fix a technical problem with the camera I had brought with me, and bringing an umbrella because it was raining on the second day. I recommend this service to anyone interested in good service great photography, and a wonderful learning experience also we attend all tours in France especially in Paris.
