Richard - tour of Quebec City

Richard was wonderful! So knowledgeable and passionate about the city and it's history. He also rolled with our family which included two teenage boys, an 8-year-old girl and a grandmother. He adjusted his facts, humor, pace and itinerary based on their interests and questions. We can't speak highly enough of him or our experience! Casey

We had a great tour with Dominique. The weather was exceedingly foul -- we were actually a little surprised it was a go -- but we had a great 2+ hour tour. Learned a lot ... it was fascinating! Dominique gave us recommendations for additional destinations to pursue later on. Highly recommend!

Marie was an excellent guide. She is a retired French teacher and attended the girls’ school that we visited. She added humor to the presentation. We got a good historical overview and a learned about the physical layout of the city. Good way to get acquainted with the area before heading out on our own.

Standing tour, not walking
pleasecallblack
, Sep 2019
Normand was very knowledgeable and his family has deep roots in Quebec. His English was impeccable but I was disappointed in the tour because I felt we spent too much time standing in one place while he explained the history in too much detail. It seemed we saw fewer sights because so much time was spent standing in one place. This was not what I would call a “walking” tour.
