Great tour. Even thought some locations were closed for the Christmas holidays, the tour was very good. As a side benefit, out tour guide Harry, also gave us a free history lesson about the the city. Definitely a must do if visiting Quebec.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Canada. Our tour guide was friendly and informative. I was travelling with my two sons aged 18 and 20 years and it was as interesting and fun for them as for me. I liked the small group and ability for us to share experiences as well. Despite the freezing temperatures we enjoyed the walk and talk. Best part was the apple wine and food at the christmas market.

I booked the Christmas in Quebec City - Small-Group Gourmet Food tour on-line for my boyfriend and I and we were really glad we did. We thought the tour was enjoyable and worth the money. We felt that our guide Richard did a great job and was quite knowledgeable, as we learned a lot about the history of Quebec and specifics about the Old Town. We also enjoyed the route that we took, along with the variety of food samples along the way. Out last stop of the tour was the Christmas Market which gave us a chance to get out of the cold and taste some great apple wine. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Quebec City during the Christmas Season.

Despite not so favouriable weather, this was the best start to our Christmas Eve in a great city. Our guide Harry was great, knowledgeable, fun and happy to share personal traditions and stories about "his" Quebec while introducing us to the sights and tastes of Christmas in Quebec.
The stops were good, the food yum and all-round a great time and something a bit different to experience in the city.

My guide, Neil, was awesome! Not only was he informative on the food scene but he was entertaining and equally informative on city sites and history. He was most enjoyable and I would suggest others go to his tour in the future. I love Quebec City and now I love it even more.

The tour took us to places that we may never have discovered on our own. The visit to the market down by the St. Lawrence was fantastic, and the tastings were so delicious that we returned to several of the tour stops during the remaining days of our visit.
