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!

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!

Great tour! Our guide, Mike, gave us the layout of Old Quebec with so much insight into the history and important sights. He was funny and always willing to answer questions. He was excellent and really seemed to love his role as tour guide.

Denise was well-informed. I don't think anyone of our group of 16 max allowed asked a question she didn't know the answer to. Great introduction to get your bearings for further exploration on your own. She recommended the Chocon Dingue for lunch in the lower town and we were very pleased with the experience.
