Claude Beauchamp is without exception an excellent tour guide. His knowledge of Quebec City is enhanced by his previous career working for the department of tourism. He speaks English very comfortably and yet my wife enjoyed speaking some French when possible. We were given a broad overview of Quebec City starting with the plains of Abraham, touring The Citadel, driving out to visit The island, seeing The Falls, returning to the Old City. We saw it all. If I could rate Claude higher than 5 stars I would.
