This was a terrific tour. Paul Burroughs, our guide, is intelligent, articulate, and fun. He has expert knowledge of his beautiful city and even showed us a few lesser known spots in Upper Town. I highly recommend him!

OK - we are not old, but we are 'older' and had some doubts about a long walking tour in hilly Quebec City so I will start with saying, our guide waited. That may seem like a small thing but it means a lot. It means that he wasn't just pushing us through a script. It means that he cared about our experience along with everyone else's. Our group had ten in it plus the guide.

The tour was well planned and sometimes surprising. Our guide was incredibly well informed. He responded to questions with a depth of knowledge and sometimes a bit of wit that made the time pass. In the end we were sorry to say farewell. We discovered a great deal about New France, the people, the places, even some little bits of background scattered as we paused made for a great way to orient us to the city.

Our first visit to Quebec City and had SO much to see and experience. We walked our buns off and filled our minds with wonderful memories and knowledge. This tour is a must.

Jacque was terrific. He told us about all of the history not only of Quebec, but how it affected the United States during the Revolutionary War. We toured the whole old city for 3 and a half hours. It was supposed to be only two hours, but not only were we hungry to learn, he was so interested and proud of his city that he wanted us to take it all in...and we did. Superb!

This tour was well worth the time and money even on a day with temps well below zero!. Our guide, Clarisse, was so friendly, knowledgeable and informative! She answered all of our questions and shared some fun tidbits about Quebec City.
