Anne gave an excellent overview of upper and lower town in Old Quebec. It gave us a lot of ideas along the way for things to see and do in our short time in Quebec City. Try to do this tour on your first day if you can. It does not take up a lot of time but you learn a lot about the history of Quebec and learn more about things you might miss if trying to see everything on your own.

and it didn’t disappoint. The guide was just wonderful. She smiled and chatted to everyone and answered everyone’s questions. She appeared hugely knowledgeable, while all the time, checking that the group was hearing her and we were getting as much as we could from the walk. After our walk we met friends who had gone on a later walk and when we met they raved about their guide. It was Marie the very same person as us. She is good, very good

Our tour guide was Carol (there are 2) … she is from the area and was very knowledgeable about Quebec. We started the tour with my two young adult daughters and a family of 5. It was raining, windy and cold at the start so the family of 5 dropped off after 15 minutes. We ended up having a private tour which was great! The weather cleared within the hour and it was fine for the remainder of the walk. Carol has a thick French accent but we could understand everything she was telling us. This is a great way to get a quick history lesson on Quebec. The tour is a great value.
