Our tour guide was Robert. He was excellent! The tour started right on time. Robert was knowledgeable, friendly and made the tour interesting. It rained that day but we still managed to make the most of it and we didn't even feel as if we missed anything. Robert even went a bit over time (with all of our permissions) to ensure that we got our monies worth. It was great to learn the rich history of the city and see the many sites. I would definitely recommend this tour and suggest that you ask for Robert :-)

Best decision - taking a guided walking tour of Old Quebec!

My husband and I really enjoyed the walking tour - learned so much history even though as Canadians we know the general outline. But the history from the First Nations, the French and the British. Also really enjoyed learning about the architecture from different periods. When you learn the history then you understand so much better the magnificent murals. Prepare to walk 2.15 hours but it goes quickly. No sauntering. Louise, our guide, was very pleasant and kept us hopping! Mary Ellen

Our tour was conducted by Louise. The meeting place was easy to find and the tour started promptly. Louise was very informative, knowledgeable and passionate. She obviously loves Quebec City and enjoys sharing the things about it that she loves. We learned a lot and had a great walk with her. Old Quebec is beautiful and has a fascinating history. I highly recommend this tour.

It was a spectacular experience in one of the most picturesque cities in North America. Our guide, Anne Tanguay was extremely knowledgeable and was eager to answer all of our questions. I'll also commend her on her stamina; we (the tourists) got ample opportunities to sit down and rest however she remained on her feet through out the 2+ hour tour. I'll recommend doing this tour as early in your trip as possible - that way, you'll have a list of places to revisit later in your stay.

Our guide provided a good history of old Quebec and some interesting antidotes. Also he worked around the construction noise as much as possible. Well worth the money.
