Private walking tour.

When booking I indicated that there was a member of our party who was in a motorized wheelchair and was assured that the tour could accommodate his needs. I asked if he could do the cobblestone streets and was told the tour would be adapted for him. In actuality we were unable to see much of the city because it was too difficult for him to navigate the streets. I would have appreciated being told that it was not going to be a good idea for us to book this tour. We would have made other plans to make the tour easier for our entire group. We would probably have done the walking tour for 4 members of the group anyway and the other 2 could have selected a tour that was more handicap friendly. Our tour guide, Marize was excellent and did the best she could under the circumstances.

Clarisse is the best!!! We were a party of 2 off a cruise ship and looking forward to being away from the 'others'. Clarisse met us at the port and customized the tour to allow my husband to get cigars at the end. Thanks Clarisse for your care and the wealth of knowledge about Quebec that you shared!!

We had a GREAT time with Simon our private walking guide. He was knowledgeable and nice. He met us at the cruise terminal. There were just 4 of us, so we probably didn't do a "typical" tour, but walked everywhere and had a great time. If you can, ask for Simon!

After a little problem finding the guide, we were pleased with the rest of the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and well versed in all the history of the city being a 12th generation inhabitant!! We saw many parts of the city and he recommended restaurants for our lunch at the end of the tour. One would want to be sure that the 3 hour walk on cobblestones and pavement is something that wouldn't cause a problem. We enjoyed it very much. And Quebec City was our favorite stop on our cruise.

Doing a private tour is the best way to go! We were able to pepper the guide with our questions and he even brought in a few things around the Louise Penny novels my mom loves.
