    Cheerful and entertaining
    , Dec 2021
    Fiona was excellent. She was our guide when we did Morrin Center Prison tour in October 2021. We were very delighted to see her again. She is very entertaining, enthusiastic, with a radiant positivity that is infectious. Our tour day was very snowy with slippery roads, but she made everything very comfortable and super-fun!
    Entertaining and Educational

    Great experience, very entertaining host! Due the terrain of Quebec City not great for anyone with mobility issues.
    Fun interactive walking tour
    , Oct 2021
    Funny and informative walking tour. Our guide was great. The tour is interactive and you really do walk across old Quebec City.
    Slow, boring and historically dubious
    , Oct 2021
    Slow, boring, historically dubious and unnecessarily sexualized. We brought our 15 year old son on the walk because it was listed as family friendly. We knew the content would include grim elements from Quebec’s history... what we didn’t know is that the tour guide/actress would make a joke about “hair pie” and it would go on and on and on for 20 minutes! The entire adult crowd kept repeating the joke. “I bet they’d like a piece of Carol’s PIE! HAHAHAHAHA!” Not once or twice or three times...over and over from stop to stop. Pie pie pie. Yes, we all know what pie is a nickname for. Well. Now our son has heard it repeated by 10 adults about 50 times as if it’s the funniest joke in the world. In addition, the woman running our tour was light on history and heavy on puns, bad jokes and repeating the phrase “Let’s just say...” over and over again. She had a smarmy attitude and repeated everything 3-4 times. Slow, boring and repetitious. Her basic understanding of history was fine but she heavily editorialized. The result was something more like an episode of Drunk History. Let’s just say this pie-obsessed 90 minute walk sucked.

    Thank you for your comment I'm surprised about what you mention. This guide work with us since more than 3 years and always received some great reviews from customers.Our activity is very popular and appreciate by couples and families. In this type of activity, it is often the customers who create the atmosphere of the tour...maybe you just weren't compatible. I'm sorry if that wasn't what you expected and I hope you enjoyed your stay in Quebec.
    Must do!

    Very entertaining from start to finish. History & humor together. My wife and I give it a 10/10. Lots of walking/stairs so make sure your capable of walking hills and stairs.
    Not scary but informative

    We went in the pouring rain, the animator she is the best, she stayed in carecter the hole time. And very informative. Don't forget to tip the actor, they deserve it.

    Save your money and time. The tour took about 90 minutes and 15 minutes in WE were ready to walk away. We were hoping this tour would give us more historical content.

    Not that hreat
    , Aug 2021
    Not as interesting as I thought it would be. The guide basically got us to act out stories by repeating every word she said. The interaction was awkward and kind of boring. It would have been better just to tell the stories and let us listen. Saw some cool parts of the city though.
