Old Quebec : Touch & Feel

Home » Quebec City (QC, Canada) » Old Quebec : Touch & Feel

Close your eyes, smell at the air, listen to the ambient noise and touch old stones and statues. Visit Old Quebec as you never thought! This unique tour is for blind and visually impaired people but is open to everyone.

When we visit a city, we mostly rely on visual perception to interpret, understand and enjoy the place. Why not using hearing, olfactive and haptic perceptions ? This walking tour is open to everyone, but primarly made for blind and visually impaired people.

We’ll use environment of Old Quebec to explain local history, architecture, urbanism and topography.

Unique characteristics of this guided tour

The size of the group will be smaller than usual. Ticket is free for companions (one companion per blind or visually impaired person). A companion ensure the safety of the accompanied person and actively contribute to the visit by describing what the accompanied person touches. Guide dogs are welcome. This tour is also available as private tour. Because touching monuments is exhausting, we’ll do several breaks during the tour.


This tour was made possible thanks to the Regroupement des Personnes Handicapées Visuelles Régions 03-12 invaluable help. We are happy to contribute to the accessibility of history and heritage to blind and visually impaired people.
