My name is Samuel Dubois, and I’ve been living in Quebec City since I was born!
When I travel, I love taking walking tours. I think it’s the best way to start off a trip and learn about a city through the eyes of a local tour guide.
After a one-year course at the College Merici in Tourism, I received my tour guide license. I am now ready to guide you to where tour buses won’t take you!

During the tour you will laugh (at least three times!). It is made to be one of the highlights of your trip!
What to expect?
We met the No. 1-rated walking guide in the city, Samuel Dubois. He’s a Quebec native — with bushy beard and red-and-black wool plaid shirt — with a wonderful sense of humor!
Our guide Samuel was extremely eloquent and entertaining and whilst hitting the highlights of Quebec also delivered against his promise of showing us facets of Quebec we would not see on a coach trip. We found the tour nicely easy-paced and very interesting and certainly appreciated the local flavour that Samuel brought.
This was my favorite walking tour and guide in Canada. Despite the bad weather conditions, Sam made the tour extremely enjoyable. He was knowledgeable, I learned a lot about the city and on top of that - Sam had a great sense of humor. I can strongly recommend!
