Simon, the English bike tour guide, was excellent. He and his colleague accommodated the fact that my wife was having difficulty keeping up with the others in a very cheerful manner. He gave us some interesting historical facts about the places we stopped at and even gave us a good recommendation for a microbrewery La Barbarie!

Terrific trip, our guide, Denis', was informative and enthusiastic. The ride itself was a joy, a great way to get the lay of the land in Old Quebec.

This was a great tour for my entire family! I have two kids, ages 13 and 9, and both loved the tour and felt they got a lot out of the history and sites. Uli, our guide, was fantastic as she was thorough in her instructions when biking, her knowledge of the city and showed a great interest in making sure my kids - who were the only kids on the tour - were attended to the entire time. Would do this tour again in a heartbeat! Thank you!!

We had a wonderful time riding through lower town with our tour guide Denny. It was a great opportunity to chat with a local and get his perspective on all sorts of interesting topics. Quebec City is well set up for biking with bike paths through beautiful parks and along the river. There were only 3 in our group, so we felt like we had our own personal tour guide. This was definitely the highlight of our trip!

We had a fabulous time on this tour! The guide was excellent and we learned an incredible amount about Quebec City during our 3 hour ride. My son and I agree that this is the very best way to learn about -- and get you bearings on the layout of the city.

This was our favorite tour of the trip. The guide knew his history which I really appreciated. Beautiful bike paths. The scenery was beautiful and it was nice to see more than just the center of the city. If I were to go back I would do it again and maybe even rent bikes for subsequent days. The parks were beautiful.

This was a highlight of our trip to Quebec. The ride was great, and we got to see areas of the city that we never would have gotten to on our own. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very patiently answered our thousands of questions. We would highly recommend!

We booked the two hour Quebec City Tour which departs from old Quebec City. The Team were very friendly and helpful. They took the time to make sure that we were happy with our bicycles and knew how to use the gears etc. The pace was easy and with very little hills. We had frequent stops along the way so that our guide could explain the history of the city he was very informative and made the Tour interesting for everyone in the group. I would definitely recommend this Tour.
