Cicerone guide Mario Langlois, who incarnates Louis Hébert during the walking tour, stands in front of the statue which honours Hébert and his wife Marie Rollet, and their three children.

Marcus Tillius Cicero (106 - 43 BC), a famous Italian orator, Epicurean and esteemed thinker, serves as the model for Cicerone Tours, guided walking tours in Old Quebec City. The word cicerone refers to the wordiness of Italian guides.
