I traveled recently to the Quebec City, and now it’s winter time but nobody stop me and I could say this is one of the best tours in my life, the tour guide was so kind!! I learned a lot about history, things to know, etc. Totally worth it, I would take it again if I could❤️

On a cool winter December day our tour guide, Lord Dufferin, was full of warmth and information. Our tour started promptly at 11am, we like when tours start in time, and due to the size of the group, the tour group quickly split the 24 people into two groups. Perfect. Lord

We certainly enjoyed our tour of the Chateau Frontenac. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained everything so well and easily. Our tour was not large, maybe 15 so it gave everyone a chance to ask questions and take part. We would do it again.
