Customized to my family tree!
Jan 2020
Thank you Xavier for a wonderful tour of Levis! He researched my family tree for me and customized the tour to show me statues of ancestors and important parts of my family history. At his recommendation, we also added a tour of Old Quebec at the end because he wanted to show me our history there as well. He did a great job of tell me about my family while also incorporating it into the larger historical context of the region and cities. On top of all of that, he's a great communicator, very adaptable, super knowledgeable, and a wonderful person!

Detailed and Prepared-- and a darn nice guy.
Oct 2018 • Solo
I am a historical fiction writer. I wanted a private tour focused on Benedict Arnold's activities in 1775. Xavier was incredibly knowledgeable and prepared. His historical understanding is deep-- it goes beyond mere dates and locations-- he helps you feel the evolution of his wonderful city.
Finally, (and importantly) he is very pleasant person.
I highly recommend him!

Thank you Steve for you review. It was a pleasure to provide a private tour tailored for you. We started in Lévis to see sites related to Benedict Arnold, the American attempt to take Quebec City and the aftermath (like the chapel St Anne). Then we took the ferry and checked many spots related to the same theme (original houses from 1775 or earlier). Since 1775 the city evolved a lot : new buildings, landfilling. My goal was you understand how the city used to be, how the topography impacted the strategical choices, what happened then and why. Thanks to your review, I can say the mission is accomplished ! I'll be really happy to read your book when you'll publish it.
