Really enjoyed the day trip with stunning winter views and hiking across frozen lake Louise! Tito was super friendly and helpful with photos, knowledge and also took us to a couple of ‘surprise spots’ because we were making good time. 10/10 for the play list and for the calming serene views!

This was a lot of fun. Although some of the clues are outdated as places have shut down or moved, we had accumulated enough gems for the hints to help us out. Be prepared to walk a fair distance for the last few clues, as they will take you outside of the Distillery District.

Great day out in Quebec city. bus driver was very pleasant and the guide was very informative.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant. Highly recommend this tour!

It was very uncomplicated and super organized! We recommend:)
