My husband and a I are completely enjoyed our 3.5 hours with Louise our amazing guide. We did the tour on our first day in Quebec City which I would highly recommend. All the knowledge we gained that first day made the rest of our trip much more relevant. Worth every cent!

Do you know what a TREASURE you have in Marguerita sp?? This woman is one amazing individual. Taking us around the city, explaining the history, geography, ethnicity and more of your lovely, lovely city was only half of what she had to offer. Interspersing her commentary with tidbits of her own personal life and history made this city come alive for us. I only wish we could have rented her FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK WE WERE THERE!!!

This was my favorite tour. Fabienne was our guide. She was great! She is very knowledgeable and a local for sure. I believe she said that her family went back fourteen generations. It was very nice to get to see some of the special places that the travel books don't mention.

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!
