    Anne was amazing, loved how she told the story of Quebec, pointed out the architectural aspects of the buildings and combined modern day information into the tour. We went with 5 kids ages 2-11 and she included them in her stories, and accommodated our stroller as much as possible. Such an enjoyable morning!

    Jean was an exceptional guide. He was super informative and was able to answer all our questions. We ended the tour with a much better sense of the city we were visiting. The tour was scheduled for 2 hours, but with the groups permission, it went over to almost 3 hours. I highly recommend taking this walking tour of Quebec city.

    Louise our guide was superb! She told a thorough and detailed history in a highly engaging way. I wasn't always a fan of history, but she has caused me to reconsider. There was a great deal of sensitivity to the people and cultures involved. I would take the same tour all over again. Thank you!
