If you want to learn about the history of Quebec and Canada then this is for you. It does not require a lot of stamina as the walking is done at a reason pace with a lot of stops. Learn a lot about the architecture in Quebec and the people responsible for its founding.

Our guide made the tour fun and very informative. It was about 2 hours 15 mins. Learned a lot and he had an interest in all the attendees; asking each of us questions like where we are from, then tailored the information to be of great interest to the group. Great exercise too. Wear sneakers. Lots of hills, uneven terrain and cobble stone walks. Fredericton, NB
