What a wonderful introduction to the city! Francois was a truly well-informed and very engaging guide. Three hours just flew by, and I can't believe how much I learned about Quebec, its history and its people.

If you have a chance to take a private walking tour -- and are lucky enough to have Francois as a guide -- you should definitely take advantage of the opportunity. Well worth the investment of time and money.

My three friends and I agree: our walking tour of old Quebec was the best any of us has ever experienced. This was due to our extraordinary guide, Robert, He was knowledgeable, funny and personable. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see underneath the t-shirts and coffee cups on sale everywhere to get to truly know Quebec City. And Robert was simply the best!

Neil was a terrific tour guide! He was focused, energetic and engaging in his presentation as we moved about the old quarter of Quebec City. He also provided extraordinary support for my friend who was traveling in a transport chair. Neil adjusted aspects of our tour to accommodate us and that was far more than I could have expected. Kudos for a job well done!
