Fascinating, very informative tour took us to many parts of the old city we had never seen before, despite our many visits. Very memorable and enjoyable way to experience the history of Quebec. We both highly recommend it, and our guide, “Guillaume Pelletier.”

Our guide was excellent, brought the city's history to life.
Lots of up and down hill walking, so wear comfortable shoes.

Like everything I experienced in my several days stay in old Quebec City, this walking tour was excellent. Our guide was in character as the first white woman to settle in Quebec City and gave us a unique view of the life and history of the times. The stories she shared from a 'first hand' viewpoint were invaluable in gaining an insight into the realities of life and its hardships, and the politics, centuries ago. Loved it!

Our family all agree that this tour was a highlight of our trip. The costumed guide had a delightful personality, working hard to engage two children and the adults. She had a real story of being a Kings Daughter true of a long ago ancestor which she used to bring Quebec City alive.

This tour was fabulous! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the city of Quebec. He also told us places to go to after the tour to learn more, we highly recommend this tour.

I especially liked the parts of the walk in the lower town. It gave me a good introduction to the old city in general because I did it on my first day. The guide stayed in her character so that helped with the history of the city.

The tour guide was excellent. We visited many of the cathedrals in the area as well as many of the other historical highlights. The tour was well worth the price.
