We scheduled this tour at the beginning of our time in Quebec to get a lay of the land before we toured on our own. Quebec is such a walkable city that it was perfect for that. It happened to be snowy day which made it even more special. Our family found it to be a great value for the experience.

Great experience! The guide was very knowledgeable and very engaging throughout the tour. Very good to see the city with another perspective and knowing the history behind everything you’re looking at!
