Great Experience

Such a great experience. Our tour guide, Jacques, was very informative and very accommodating. It was just my sister and I on the tour since we were the only ones crazy enough to walk 2 hours in -27°F weather, but we essentially got a personalized tour of the city and were able to go indoors to warm up every half hour or so. Jacques also added an entire hour to our tour, which was so kind, and also offered great conversation. Overall, my sister and I were very satisfied and highly recommend this tour!

Francis was a great guide, very knowledgeable about the old city and its history. We ended up having a private tour with him because it was a very cold day (-21C wind chill) and other people left the tour halfway so that I and my wife were the only ones left. We had a great time.

The guide was excellent and knowledgeable. Provided a very interesting summary of the history of Quebec City. We were extremely cold on the tour (despite being dressed appropriately) as we were standing in the wind quite a bit. There were no warming spots or stops for coffee, which would have been nice. Unfortunately we had to leave the tour early as we were too cold to continue.
