This walking tour put it all together for us. Quebec has a fascinating history, from the First Nations to the French, English and Canada.

This was a great tour. The tour guide made it fun and interesting, and we learned a lot of history on about Quebec. The tour hit all of the major sites within the Upper and Lower town, and took just the right amount of time. I would definitely recommend it.

Tour enjoyment seems heavily dependent upon the tour guide and we had the BEST - Mike O'Farrell. He's true gem, full of historic and non-historic tales. He's engaging, thoughtful and funny. We had booked this tour for day 3 of our 5 day Quebec adventure and I was planning to be disappointed. After 3 days in Quebec you have really seen most of it. Completely wrong. Although Mike took us places we had seen already, he livened up the tour with his wit and humor. He loves Quebec and history. Great guide and person. Thank you Mike.

I took this tour in October 2015. Excellent tour!!! Our tour guide was wonderful and had a whole notebook full of additional pictures and maps that she shared with us. It was a great tour and a great history lesson!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Yes, the trip was wonderful. Even though the weather was cold, rainy, and windy. But we were dressed for it so hit the ground running and saw everything we intended to see. Loved the history, language, food, people, architecture - all were wonderful. I'll be back!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Great and informative tour of the upper and lower Quebec cities. Jean was a local so he knew all the history and his English was superb. Strongly recommend.
