What people are saying about Quebec City

We LOVE Julie!! What an incredible experience. The tour is so full of great historical stories and the guides are incredibly knowledgeable. It’s such a fantastic way to see the city while it’s lit up in all of its glory. We had so much fun and we can’t recommend this experience enough.

The Guide was very knowledgeable, very inspiring, very easy going, and made sure everyone was included even my mom who walks with a cane. He was very pleasant.

Our guide was wonderful! He was very knowledgeable and seemed to really enjoy showing and telling us about his city. I wouldn't hesitate to book another tour.

Rene’ was a charming guide, working the Christmas ‘magic’ into a tour full of history and fun, spanning upper and lower old Quebec City.

Very much enjoyed. Learned a lot about history of Quebec and Christmas.
