This was one of the best city tours we've ever taken. Brian was the best tour guide ever! He was very knowledgeable about Quebec City's history and architecture. I felt like I knew everything there was to know about Quebec City. The tour was supposed to last two hours, but it actually went about 20 minutes long, and he was in no hurry to finish. The tour operator split a large group into two groups, so our group only had about eight people, which was really nice.

Our tour guide, Clarise, was an amazing guide with deep knowledge of Quebec and a wonderful family history to share. We learned a lot and felt like we traveled back in time with her anecdotes and commentary.

Our guide's name sounded like Hellen ( not quite sure, unfortunately) I took her walking tour on 7/15/2018 on 3:30 PM. In one word, she is a great guide who explains what anyone would want to know in any walking tour about this town, Quebec city. I would love to take another tour for another place if she is our guide again. She is delightfully serious and funny, but never made any jokes to offend anyone ( trust me , there are a lot of guides who spit out sad, and unnecessary joke or comment to make things funny)
Thanks to her, we learned a lot about Old Quebec city in a very meaningful and positive way.
A great guide!

This was one of the most informative and entertaining walking tours that I have ever taken. The guide obviously loves is work because he was so entertaining and brought Quebec history to life in his guided walk. History can be dry but he was able to present it in an entertaining and humorous way and made it lively and interesting. Highly recommend it.

Louise was our tour guide and was amazing you can tell she has a passion for her town and country. She was so knowledgeable and had wonderful stories. Pay attention so she will give you a story treat at the end. Her tour will go long we loved it. Her recommendation for the crepe restaurant at the top of the stairs was spot on. Go on this tour.

This was a terrific tour. Paul Burroughs, our guide, is intelligent, articulate, and fun. He has expert knowledge of his beautiful city and even showed us a few lesser known spots in Upper Town. I highly recommend him!

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.
