OK - we are not old, but we are 'older' and had some doubts about a long walking tour in hilly Quebec City so I will start with saying, our guide waited. That may seem like a small thing but it means a lot. It means that he wasn't just pushing us through a script. It means that he cared about our experience along with everyone else's. Our group had ten in it plus the guide.

The tour was well planned and sometimes surprising. Our guide was incredibly well informed. He responded to questions with a depth of knowledge and sometimes a bit of wit that made the time pass. In the end we were sorry to say farewell. We discovered a great deal about New France, the people, the places, even some little bits of background scattered as we paused made for a great way to orient us to the city.

Our first visit to Quebec City and had SO much to see and experience. We walked our buns off and filled our minds with wonderful memories and knowledge. This tour is a must.

Jacque was terrific. He told us about all of the history not only of Quebec, but how it affected the United States during the Revolutionary War. We toured the whole old city for 3 and a half hours. It was supposed to be only two hours, but not only were we hungry to learn, he was so interested and proud of his city that he wanted us to take it all in...and we did. Superb!

This tour was well worth the time and money even on a day with temps well below zero!. Our guide, Clarisse, was so friendly, knowledgeable and informative! She answered all of our questions and shared some fun tidbits about Quebec City.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

Clarisse was very knowledgeable and pleasant. It was a very cold and windy day and she made sure we were able to go in and out of places to warm up, while still sharing her history and love of Quebec City. I came away with a new sense of respect and interest of Quebec City. Job well done! Definitely a must do..

Very informative tour, which was just at the right pace. The tour guide also provided a little bit of humour in her narrative.

The city tour was very informative and the travel guide was amazing! He shared historical stories with us throughout the trip and it was very useful. Although it was a bit cold because it's winter, it was nice because of a smaller group.

Clarisse was our guide and she was great. She lives in the immediate area and clearly is both knowledgeable about the history as well as pleased to share it with visitors. The tour nicely covers the core of the upper and lower sections of Old Quebec finishing at the foot of the funicular not included which is a nice way back to the top. If you get Clarisse, be sure to ask her about her flag collection.
