What people are saying about Quebec City

Our guide, Dominique was passionate about the history, architecture and food of Quebec. She was proud of her heritage and her city and was enthusiastic about sharing her passion with her guests. The group was a good size so we could hear everything and she managed to keep us moving and together, even though there were road closures due to the Popes visit. There were so many interesting places highlighted that we could go back to visit to explore in more depth.

I enjoyed this fantastic 2hr walking tour of Quebec with Francis. He was a fun, informative, interesting, entertaining and engaging guide. Francis brought the old town to life with his historical stories and knowledge of life in Quebec. Phenomenal guide and well paced, interesting tour. I would definitely recommend.

Marie, our guide, was excellent: knowledgeable, passionate, attentive to the group's questions and simply charming. Many, many thanks! PS. As a tour guide of many years in Moscow Kremlin, I would humbly suggest just one thing - smother transitions from one stop/topic to another.

Our tour guide was so well versed and clear! We learned a lot about the history of Quebec! It was absolutely worth it!

Thorough but not too tiring. Our guide Francis, was very good. I’m Glad we did it.
