The best way to see the old city of Quebec is definitely on foot and with a private guide. We my kids and I were especially fortunate to have Brian Jenner as our guide! Experienced, informative and entertaining, he was a fountain of local knowledge and quick to pick up on our specific interests so we felt as if the tour had been customized for us. We only had the one afternoon in Quebec, and it was very full, but there is clearly a lot more to see, so we will be back for more. Thank you Brian and La Vacanza Travel for an unforgettable afternoon in Quebec.

This was a great tour we were four 2 of them teenagers. We were lucky to have Jacques Loiselle as our guide he was engaging, knowledgeable and personable. It was a great introduction to the city's history and culture. Jacques recommendations were on-point. Highly recommended.

So worth the additional expense as the guide was able to take my friend and I around at our pace friend had a knee injury. Despite the slower pace we still saw all the areas on the tour which he graciously extended for us as we were the last tour of the day. La Vacanza Travel also arranged this tour to start slightly later than advertised as we were coming from the airport and wanted to maximize our time as much as possible.

My wife and I had the privilege of spending 3 hours, with our wonderful guide Simon, hearing about, seeing, and experiencing the history, architecture, and culture that has made Quebec City what it is today. The intimate size of our group coupled with a well paced tour provided for an enjoyable and memorable adventure. We would recommend this trip to anyone and remind them to tell their guide what they are into as the guide can tailor the tour to your liking. Have FUN!

I had an excellent tour with Jacques! He's got a lot of passion for Quebec City and knew his history. He presented it in an easy to understand way. It was a great way to start my trip and gain an understanding of the city, the people and get to know the areas and places I'd want to go back to. And I appreciated that he was a fast walker like me so we were able to see a lot more. I highly recommend this tour!!
