Guided Walking Tour with David Mendel
Guided walking tour of Old Quebec with David Mendel
David Mendel studied at York University in Toronto, and at the University of Paris La Sorbonne, before moving to Quebec City in 1976 to complete a master thesis in art history and undertaking doctoral studies at Laval University.

He is often called upon to give talks about the history of Quebec at international conferences and has given numerous tours of the city for visiting dignitaries. A resident of Quebec’s historic district since 1976, he is very involved in preservation issues. He is President of the Foundation of the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity - the first Anglican Cathedral to have been built outside the British Isles – and a member of the Consulting Committee for Religious Architecture of the City of Quebec. 

In the visit “Quebec, World Heritage City” the tour begins on the Dufferin Terrace, a magnificent boardwalk overlooking the St. Lawrence River. Next stop is the Seminary of Quebec, founded in 1663, now occupied by the Architecture School of Laval University. Also visited, the magnificent interior of Notre-Dame-de-Québec Basilica. In the lower town, a must see: Place Royale where the Government of Quebec has restored merchants’ houses from the time of New France.
