If you want to hear interesting stories and facts about old Quebec City and history, take this tour. This is my third visit: in the first two I took bus tours but now I decided to take a walking tour and I'm not disappointed. Thanks to Gangreen (I might spell it incorrectly) I got to know about the city much more than during my two previous visits. Well done!

Very thorough. Great way to learn about the city. It's not a very big place so there wasn't a lot of walking required. It brought the history to life. The docent was very professional and was able to communicate both the facts as well as what led to events occurring they did.

The tour itself was excellent.

The tour was excellent. However, we booked online and the printed tickets had the wrong address for the start of the tour. Even the online reminder we received the evening before the tour had the same wrong address. After arriving at the wrong address, it was another 15 minute walk to arrive at the correct address to start the tour. Very frustrating when you are in an unfamiliar city and are given incorrect info for a scheduled tour!
