We took 3 guided tours during our stay in Quebec City, but this one was by far the best. We enjoyed seeing interesting areas inside the building, and liked the informed and costumed guide who not only gave his presentation but was also able to answer all of our tour group's questions knowledgeably. Great tour!

Very interesting history along with guided tour of hotel, going to several parts of the hotel a wandering visitor either would not have access to or would not get the history of. Our guide, Joseph, the mayor of the time of the beginning of the hotel, was very well informed and gave an entertaining guided tour.

Overall, I was underwhelmed with this tour. I really wanted to love it but I think we spent more time seeing pictures from a binder of the hotel VS actually seeing the hotel. We saw two important rooms/aspects of the hotel and then the rest was walking through crowded hall ways on our not so private tour. The tour guide was really knowledgeable and liked the topic a lot. It was clear! But I wished we’d been able to see more of the “unseeable” things (a room, servants quarters, ballroom etc). This tour took place mostly in crowded hallways and narrow landings. If you’re looking for an actual tour of the hotel itself, this isn’t it.
