Our guide was promp, courteous and very informative. We scheduled this tour after our guide from another service scheduled through Viator did not show up. She was a local and was able to share what is was like in old Quebec through her grandmother’s, mother’s eyes and herself as a child. The pace of the tour was perfect. The guide gave us great historical information and was just delightful .

Ann was wonderful and so accurate. She took time to answer all our questions. I would strongly recommend her to anyone traveling to Quebec City. 10+++++++ Mary and Ray Naperville, Illinois

Our guide, Marie, was superb. Knowledgeable and great communicator. We learned so many new things about Quebec City and were able to recall many of the facts we learned in high school.

Francis, our guide was informative and knowledgeable. He told interesting stories and we appreciated his balanced views of past events.

She is amazing and explained very well. Best guided tour so far
