Old Quebec city was brought to life By our dynamic informative guide! She provided historical facts as well as personal interest stories throughout the tour. We enjoyed her perspective on the history of the city. Truly the best tour of our entire trip!

The tour was extensive, covered a lot of ground in the old city and went to many important stops, all with a very detailed history and background talk. We really enjoyed it. Well worth the money. Recommend.

Michael O'Reilly was our guide and he was a great one! His knowledge of Quebec City, particularly the architecture was excellent. He really personified love for Canada. It was a great walking tour and gave us plenty of time to do further exploration of the city before we had to board our cruise ship.

Old World Charm
February 03, 2020
Old Quebec City truly has an old world charm. The walking tour was a good way to get a history of Quebec, an appreciation for some of it's architecture, and a sense of the pride the residents have, as evidenced by our guide. The mural was especially interesting and informative as our guide explained it.

I wish we could remember our wonderful guide's name! She was so full of knowledge & love for her city. After this walking tour, we felt very comfortable exploring the old city a little more on our own. Definitely recommend this excursion!

Our tour guide Louise was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We had a group of 15. The size of the group together with the sheer number of people visiting Quebec, meant that the tour was a bit slower than it might have been, however it was great and Louise kept us all together. Very interesting.

Great Tour!! Our guide was knowledgeable and also entertaining. She knew everything there was to know about the city and the French settlements in Canada. She also planned the tour well, that most of the walking was downhill. I would recommend this tour!

Good tour on a windy rainy day
October 14, 2018
We learned a great deal from our tour guide on this walking tour. He was very knowledgeable about the city and its history. Unfortunately it was cold, rainy and extremely windy which made it very difficult to hear and appreciate the information we received. He tried to find out of the weather spots so we would be better able to enjoy the tour. I would recommend this tour
Reviewer: Nadine Troccoli DiNizo
Great guide and lovely city
October 11, 2018
Even though it was freezing cold outside and many were not warmly dressed, our guide persevered and did her best to find us places to get out of the cold and wind. She was excellent and I am just sorry that I can't remember her name and sorry that the weather did not cooperate!

What a city
September 28, 2018
Again guide was knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Started in upper city and finished in lower city. About 2.5 hour walk. Walk was outside except for chapel of some nuns which was beautiful. Explained city history. Took us down some interesting back alleys. Walked from terminal to visitor center where tour began. Used funicular instead of stairs.

Astonishing and beautiful Quebec

We loved the walking tour in Quebec. The guide tour is a very knowledge person in history to explain us the details of how this city was built. We walk at a good pace and stop for explanations. It was pleasant and we did not finish tired. We had a great time and we recommend 100 percent this tour.

Really enjoyed the tour. The tour guide made everything very interesting. He not only showed us the history, but also informed us on what it is like to live in Quebec City. The instructions said to take a taxi from the ship, but if you are healthy enough to take a walking tour then you are healthy enough to walk to the meeting location. I would suggest that they give instructions for this option also.

Excellent walking tour
January 04, 2017
Our guide was excellent. He was very eager to show off his city and share his family's part is the history of Quebec City. He maintained a brisk pace and we covered a lot of ground but he also stopped frequently to talk about what we were seeing or talk about the history of Quebec City. Everyone in our group was able to keep up. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk a couple of miles.

Enjoyed Quebec History
December 17, 2016
We found the Old Quebec City Walking Tour to be enjoyable and informative. Michael O'Neill, our guide, was well informed of the history, and had personal stories to tell about living in Quebec. The tour was small enough in size so everyone could hear. There were people on the walking tour who were staying in hotels, and also from other ships. Because our Cunard ship was late in debarking, we were the last to show up (our ship docked at 8am but did't debark until almost 9am and the tour was at 9am). The guide had waited an extra few minutes and was anxiously looking for us when we arrived. The tour departed from our pier. Apparently there are other piers in Quebec and there were detailed directions given to reach the tour from those piers. This was the 1st tour we have booked through Explore Cruise & Travel shore excursion program, and we were pleased how it turned out. We would definitely take the walking tour again & would consider doing other shore excursions with this program.

Best Tour We Took

Robert Vandermeer was our guide and he provided a very personal and relevant commentary. Since the group was small he was able to adjust the tour to meet the needs of the group. At the end he offered suggestions for lunch where the locals ate. We had taken a tour in each port and I would highly recommend Robert and this tour.

Didn't know what to expect as this was our first tour booked with OLVC and not the cruise ship. It was GREAT! The tour was much more than we expected. The city is beautiful, and our guide showed us some really nice places. He knew his stuff. Just be prepared to walk up some pretty steep hills. If you're in shape, the hills won't bother you, but if you're not, you might want to take a bus tour. Highly recommended.

August 05, 2016
Excellent & very informative. Our tour guide Marie loves this city & conveyed that in all the info she gave us. She asked first if we had a little extra time, so this tour lasted longer than the 2.5 hours which was great for us! I've used Shore Excursions for two different trips & have never had a bad experience. They use local guides & are more affordable than the ships excursions
July 31, 2016
The tour was just wonderful! Our guide was a native and very knowledgeable. Be prepared to hike up some serious hills should you sign up for this one. Our only snag was that the guide did not meet us where our tickets told us to meet her. We waited at the assigned place, and finally had to scramble around looking for them - came close to missing this.

Very informative Tour
November 06, 2014
A very detailed walking tour that got into many areas the bus tours cannot attempt. Michael was a great guide that had a wealth in information about the old City and Palace Royal area. Not a tour for those that cannot walk a couple of miles, lots of stairs and uneven cobblestone streets like any older European City
