  • I visited as I walked the fortified walls of Quebec City. It was well worth checking out. I adored the Governor’s Walk especially.

  • Highly recommended attraction in Quebec City. Loved the tour. We did both the Citadel tour and the Governor’s quarter tour. Beautifully kept site and well trained staff with great story telling. At the end of the Governor’s quarter tour (free), we got to go to the terrace to take in the view. Breath taking and educational at the same time. I will remember!
  • Nice place. Clean and well prepared. You'll have 2 organized visits. You will not be allowed to explore the place yourself. Change of guards every 2 hours something worth to see. Nice overall. Kids will be bored.
