The guide that took us around is very knowledgeable about the history, the architecture, etc. he was also very pleasant. The city is magnificent. I had been there twice before but in the Summer. This time the tour was during the Christmas holiday with all the decorations and a light snowfall to round out the perfect setting. Truly an outstanding experience.

Reggie was the best!! Would highly recommend taking this tour when you first get into old Quebec... helps you get the ‘lay of the land,’ and understand the history of where you are walking.

Louise is an all star at knowing the city she calls home. Lots of history with links to modern day. She was wonderful to deal with. The tour is well worth the price to get a feel for all Quebec City has to offer.

Enjoyable 90 minutes plus. Our guide (Anne) was informative, spunky and overall had a very engaging and kind demeanor. Made everyone feel welcome, was not dismissive. Very good value in my opinion

We enjoyed a small group walking tour with Robert. The guide was both knowledgeable and entertaining. It is an excellent tour to schedule for you first full day in Quebec City. It covers a couple of key highlights that you can visit on tour but also provides good acclimation to the layout. The 9:30 tour finishes in petite Champlain where you can have lunch and plan the rest of your day and visit

Our first morning in Quebec City was with Robert guiding us through the upper and lower towns. It was the perfect way to learn the layout of the old city and to get a very interesting history lesson. This is a very good tour.

This walking tour was excellent. RIchard was an excellent speaker, fun and gave us a lot if interesting information. We are both over 65 and fairly fit and the amount of walking was just right.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area as she lives in one of the historic homes. She gave interesting facts about the building construction and where the materials came from, the ladders on the roofs, Le Chateau Frontenac, the famous mural, etc. She recommended taking the funicular up the hill (it's a good hike if you don't) where we had a nice lunch after the tour

Maryse was a wonderful guide. What made this tour so special was the history that only a true Québécois could present. It was a combination of her knowledge, enthusiasm and love of what she enjoyed sharing with our small group. Much of our tour was in a substantial rain. She never allowed the weather to dampen our enjoyment of the walk through old Quebec City.

Michael was awesome. He connected his personal history to the cultural history of Quebec City. He took us through some quieter streets away from the crowds as well as some main historical viewpoints.

Margarita was a excellent guide with a great amount of history to share. We started at the top of old Quebec City and ended at the bottom. Comfortable shoes is a must for this tour. No stopping for refreshments, so don't go hungry.

Quebec City Walking Tour was one of the best walking tours we have ever taken. Obviously Quebec City is a wonder land of things to see. However, our tour guide who lives and was born in the city was extremely informative and made the tour very enjoyable. Lots of details and history.

Our 2 hour walking tour ended up as a 3 hour tour with our excellent guide, Robert who is very dedicated and knowledgeable and most eager to educate as well as entertain. We learned a lot about Quebec city while walking all around the old town. Robert gave us several recommendations for shopping and dining and made our tour very enjoyable and worthwhile. He is a real treasure.
