Our unlucky night
I read so many 5 star reviews about this tour but sadly ours was so terrible we left halfway through it. It seemed to he pure gibberesh as the "actor" babbled about incoherent stories. Weve done many, many tours and this just seemed to be amateurish improv. Very sorry to give a negative review but as the kids say, it is what it is.

Fun, informative tour
It was very cool to walk around the city and hear about old punishments - our tour guide was Elizabeth and she was great! Her English was absolutely perfect and she really bring her character of Marie Riviers to life.

Wondered what my explorer ancestors were up against!
Oct 2019
We took this tour as I was wondering what my settler ancestors of New France were up against law wise back int he good old days. Our guide, Madame Rivier met us on time...a group of 8 of us and off we went for a walking tour of upper and lower QC from the point of laws and punishments inflicted on lawbreakers of New France.... if you think being a settler was difficult wait until you hear the "crimes and punishments"!!!! And, the British outdid the French when it came to cruelty.....It was an interesting spin on the history.....and we always take bus and walking history tours...love it....and we have taken ghost tours in the past in other towns...but this tour was more history based and interwoven in the biographies of some of its famous "criminals"........even back then there were misfits for sure.

My husband and I started off our visit to Quebec City with this tour and talked about it the entire vacation! Our tour guide was Vincent, and he was great the entire time! He was very funny, engaging and educational. We really enjoyed learning all the punishments and crimes and it was a good way to get acclimated to the city!

What fun!
My husband and I decided to do this tour on our last night and I’m so glad we did! Our tour guide Leenie was a wonderful actress and played her part well. we heard some great stories of the past and she took us to a few areas we hadn’t seen that we would’ve otherwise missed. Great, inexpensive activity for everyone!

Lots of Fun and you learn something too
Sep 2019
We took the tour in September 2019. Our hostess/ghost was Elizabeth (real name) who in the character of the executioner's wife from 17th century New France gave us a flavour of life in Quebec at that time. We enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anyone visiting the city.

Fun walking tour
Aug 2019
We had an engaging two hours with our small tour group. Our guide, Vincent, was funny and knowledgeable. Although my family arrived a few minutes late, it didn’t throw him off his game! The tour was enjoyable and I got it a lot of steps! I would recommend this to friends.
The trip started at the Morrin Centre and ended at Place Royal in the lower city. We took the funicular back to the upper town ($3.50 per person).
Bring a camera that can take good pictures in low light and wear good walking shoes, and be prepared for the uneven cobblestone streets. August nights can get chilly, so i brought a light jacket. Also bring cash to tip your tour guide (most of our group appeared to tip between 15% and 20%). Be prepared to take part in the story, you won’t be disappointed if you have a sense on humour.

Something special
Jul 2019
Having only arrived in Quebec City a few hours before we loved having this on our first night's agenda. We had dinner and then walked over to meet the group. There was no formal meeting area but the guide(s) quickly became very evident.

Identifying themselves and separating the mass into the appropriate groups we met with our english speaking guide for a quick overview, introduction, and business.. after that - we were off!

We walked through the streets as a group learning an interesting side of the history of QC. The guide seemed so into the character I found myself wondering if it wasn't an act.

He was engaging, patient, and entertaining. He kept the entire group interested and involved and taught us fun facts.

While the history of the city's crime may not change, I could definitely see us trying this again if/when we go back. We'd definitely look into a similar tour in other cities we visit with the hopes they live up to this one!
