I rarely comment on anything, but Claude's tour was incredible! This was a first "private" tour for all four of us. We've seen many group tours, and now realize how impersonal they can be. Claude far exceeded our expectations with his lifelong knowledge and sincere desire to share with others. He had Historical information, but also keeps up with current events. And, he is very well known and appreciated throughout the Province, providing a VIP experience at each of the venues. Easily a 5 star booking!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The great quality of a private tour is that the relationship established between the guide and the visitor goes further than the showcase of the destination. A conversation takes place, a dialogue is established and, at the end of the tour, everyone will have learned from the history, the culture and the knowledge of others. And all that, without being stressed and rushed by the clock. Thank you for taking the time to highlight this big difference between group tours and tours with a private guide.

Claude was an excellent tour guide. Fluent in English. We had a group of six people and his vehicle was clean and in good condition. He even provided umbrellas, snacks and drinks! He seamlessly adjusted our tour to deal with weather conditions - and was very accommodating to our wishes. He also provided helpful information on local restaurants and even sent a list of other things we might want to do on our other days. Highly recommend this tour and this guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Steven for this review and also for recommending me as a tour guide. Know that I would also recommend you as a traveler to all my colleagues from Tours by Locals all over the world ! Please pass on my regards to your friends.
Claude surpasses all expectations . He was attentive, knowledgeable and extremely personable. He showed pride in his home and culture and imparted it very well. My wife and I could not have been happier with our choice. His English is very good and we would certainly use him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for this review. I spent a wonderful time with your wife and you. When you’ll come back to Quebec City, contact me. We’ll continue the conversation. Take care

Just enjoyed our wonderful tour with Claude today. He was warm, professional, and so thoughtful during our entire tour. We had an informative walking tour of downtown Quebec, the citadel, an amazing lunch and so much more ! We LOVED him.... Would reccomend this tour to anyone wishing a wonderful overview of the city that Claude clearly loves.

Claude was the most fantastic guide. He was pleasant, knowledgeable, personable, and organized.I , my wife and granddaughter spent two glorious days with Claude. we toured Old Quebec city and learned all the history of Quebec and Canada. we also went to the falls, Isle of Orleans, and for our granddaughter we went to Air Canyon. This was Claude's suggestion. It was great for us and fantastic for our grandaughter. Hire Claude it will be the best time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: WOW ! I do not know what to say after such a comment. These two days in your company have also been fantastic for me. Thank you for trusting me and having embarked on the adventures that I have proposed for you and your wife, as well as for your granddaughter. She is so lucky to have grandparents like you ! Best regards.

My two girlfriends and I booked a day long tour of Quebec City, Montmorency Falls, and St. Ann's and it was the highlight of our Canada trip. Claude is everything you expect a guide to be - but he offers so much more. He accommodated our slow place and changes to the itinerary with aplomb and grace. He truly wants you to have a great experience and love Quebec as much as he does. Take one or more of his tours you won't be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. Your comment goes straight to my heart. I too had a great day with your friends and you.

My mother and I could not have had a better experience. It was a farewell tour for her at 88 years old. Claude designed a perfect tour with our special needs in mind. We had a lovely day. My mother said that Claude made the trip to Quebec city the highlight of our week, and I agree. I would recommend this guide in particular for his ability to be in tune with his customer at every step of the journey. We would request him in particular in a future visit to this fine city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! What could I say more than THANKS for this beautiful testimony of appreciation. I had a wonderful day with you. I hope to see you soon in Quebec City. An hug to you and to your lovely Mom. Take care

Claude provides us with a professional yet personal tour. I had requested a visit the cemetery where my 5 and 4 times Great Grandparents were buried. He researched the information I sent him, and took us right to the church and cemetary. The church was closed, but he went back a few days later and took pics inside the church and emailed them to me. We were also able to visit other important areas of Quebec City. Excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. I really appreciate. You know, I'm always proud to share my passion for Quebec City and its area and to add some extras to increase the satisfaction of the travelers. It's my way of thanking them for the confidence they have given me in choosing me as a guide.
