Great tour guide but very disappointed with the tour of the Chateau Frontenac. We only visited the entrance, ballroom, corridor from ballroom to kitchen , hallway with photos of celebrities and round ladies room. I was expecting to visit all the 5 different units that were built at different times along with a suite and view from the top. Really not worth the $53 we paid for.

The guide was punctual, informative, well versed and knowledgeable about the Castle, and extremely entertaining when the opportunity presented itself. The tour is a short one, one hour, but we learned a lot in that short period of time. Worth the hour!

A history of Château Frontenac in great fun. Told in an animated way that was so captivating. How Frontenac outwited the British. How and why it became into a hotel. Fires, reconstructions and additions. The place where D-Day was planned and other august guests that stayed plus intriguing trivia re the wife, the mistress, guest wishes and lost letters.
