Full description
Our evening of interactive street theater will take you back to an intriguing time in Old Quebec when the area was known as New France. You’ll learn about the city’s seedier side and its criminal element! The old city was at one time a den of inequity for a fairly large number of criminals. New France has emerged from its infamous past and our performer/guide will tell you about the sordid crimes committed hundreds of years ago. Our 2-hour, unique Ghost Walking Tour offers a fascinating step back into the past. You’ll walk through the heart of Old Quebec City accompanied by Marie Rivière or Jean Rattier, your extraordinary ghostly guides. Throughout this street theater performance your performer/guide will keep you captivated as you are introduced to the ghosts of 10 past criminals and you learn about the nature of their crimes.

    The group of actors are so much fun, immersive, and knowledgeable. You will not regret spending 2 hours with them while exploring the stories of Quebec's criminal history. This was fabulous for our kids of ages 10 and 12 as well. What a wonderful way to bring history to life. Congratulations on a brilliant performance.

    Our guide for the evening, Marie Rivière, played by Marianne, was fantastic! We really enjoyed visiting new and dark corners. Several characters joined our hike with a captivating way of informing us of their deeds and deaths. What a beautiful evening through Old Quebec. It was a more than fascinating guided tour. Thanks to Marianne and all the other actors who participated! An experience that will stay in our minds for a long time! :)

    Incredible tour. We did ours on Halloween night, the winds were 80km/hr and it was pouring rain. The guide and actors did an amazing job keeping the group entertained and interactive. The story telling along with scenic views were a great representation of what Old France was like. Great job!
