We had a wonderful tour of this old city, conducted by a knowledgeable informative guide. The instructions to the meeting place were good and we were able to walk there in a short period. I would caution that the tour starts in the upper city and if you opt, as we did, to walk rather than take the funicular it is a quite steep uphill walk. The tour begins in the upper city and ends in the lower city, but we still had several uphill strolls.

Roberto gave us a great tour of the city. While we were only supposed to have a two hour tour, he spent three hours telling us about this beautiful city.

Our guide Simon was knowledgeable and dedicated and made our tour absolutely fascinating with his insights and real interest in Quebec. Also it's a very picturesque and historical centre.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

What a wonderful 2 hours touring this city with a great guide. She gave just enough information to keep the tour interesting. The Quebec Marathon was going on while we were there so the streets in Old Town were very empty, giving us lots of time to walk through the streets. The guide also told us about the inexpensive ferry that runs across the harbor -- a great way to take pictures of the Chateau Frontenac and the skyline from the water.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017
