The tour was a great way to start our Quebec vacation learning about both the history of the hotel and a little of the City too. Our guide, Thomas, was filled with good humor and charisma.

It was excellent performance by the lady guide (I forget her name) who owns a horse named Bob. She was informative, clear in her enunciation and witty.

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our guided tour of Quebec. The guide was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to.

Excellent customer service, entertaining and knowledgeable guide tour. Alain made the trip fun!

Guy, our Guide, was very interesting and informative.
