Wonderful morning with Richard
Thomas_R
, Jun 2022
Richard was an incredibly engaging guide who combined his knowledge of the history of Quebec with his personal experience of having grown up in the city. He really encouraged questions from the group, and the 2+ hours felt much more like a conversation than a lecture. We went on the walking tour our first day, and that really helped orient us for the remainder of our time in Quebec City. I'd highly recommend this experience!
