Terrific and informative way beyond the highlights. Given by a real local who has grown up there and schooled there and his children. Gives you a real feel for the place and people from historic to today.

Tour guide was excellent

While the guide was very good, the walking was extensive on cobbled streets. There was a lot of noise from construction which is just the nature of summer time in an old city. We enjoyed the walk but as two women in our late 60's and mid 70's, we were vert tired and sore after the 2 and a half hour walk. Despite the challenges, we very much enjoyed the tour and are glad we took the tour.

We had a wonderful tour of this old city, conducted by a knowledgeable informative guide. The instructions to the meeting place were good and we were able to walk there in a short period. I would caution that the tour starts in the upper city and if you opt, as we did, to walk rather than take the funicular it is a quite steep uphill walk. The tour begins in the upper city and ends in the lower city, but we still had several uphill strolls.

What a wonderful 2 hours touring this city with a great guide. She gave just enough information to keep the tour interesting. The Quebec Marathon was going on while we were there so the streets in Old Town were very empty, giving us lots of time to walk through the streets. The guide also told us about the inexpensive ferry that runs across the harbor -- a great way to take pictures of the Chateau Frontenac and the skyline from the water.
