Icon guided tour Québec by lantern light 

Take an interactive, guided tour and learn about the daily lives of settlers newly arrived in Québec in 1847. Fleeing famine, you are among the Irish who survived the crossing and are now trying to start a new life. Along your path, meet an assortment of characters who reflect troubled times in the city. Like these immigrants, you will be faced with the realities of this military city. Will you be able to avoid the pitfalls that await you, such as begging and unemployment? Will you be able to achieve a respected position in the colony?

Mysterious places, a trek on foot to go back in time, breathtaking views and five colourful characters to bring a fascinating story to life.
