This was our first visit to the beautiful city of Quebec City. It was extremely important to find the best tour guide possible to relate the rich history of Quebec City. Francine proved to be everything we had hoped for and more. She is extremely professional, great fun, and knowledgeable in the history of Quebec and Quebec City. We greatly appreciated her flexibility in modifying the arranged tour to areas that were more important to us. I would highly recommend Francine as your future tour guide.

Francine, Fall colors, Fabulous Falls and Fantastic Ice Cider! Francine took us for a tour of Quebec and surrounding countryside that was fun, fun, fun. She is so knowledgeable about 5e area. We visited Montmorency Falls and witnessed the power of that cascade of water up close. She was respectful of our picture-taking needs and we never felt hurried. Francine guided us to a great restaurant in the shadow of Chateau Frontenac, then took us on a tour of upper and lower Quebec City via the funicular.

Francine did a great job taking us on a 6 hour tour of Quebec and the Countryside. Her knowledge and professionalism made the tour both stimulating and enjoyable. The Falls are magnificent, but seeing them from the suspension bridge was breathtaking. A short stop for cider tasting and chocolates was fun! Our driver (I forgot his name), was very pleasant, polite, and cautious. A great way to acclimate to Quebec City. I'd definitely recommend it!

Three ladies on a road trip thru Canada. Francine made our day in Quebec City very memorable. From our morning visit to the falls and the island, a lovely lunch then walking tour thru the city. She made it fun and interesting. I had been to Cassis Mona &Filles before and asked Francine if we could bring my friends there. She said of course it's your tour and that was incorporated into our tour. Francine is personable and extremely knowledgeable about her beloved city. Thanks Francine for a wonderful day

Francine was knowledge organized and took us to interesting places not on the typical. She also selected an excellent restaurant in Quebec City for lunch . A great day that we were sorry to end.
Eva LayneUnited States
This was the best tour of our 12 day cruise. Francine was wonderful and modified our tour to meet our needs. She was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor which was a must with our group! She even spent some extra time with us on the walking tour which was above what we were expecting. All four of us agreed!

Linda JohnsonUnited States
Francine gave us an excellent tour of Quebec, we covered all the key points that highlighted our first visit to the city. We spent a lovely time on the Orleans Island. She covered the history of this quaint countryside and included a stop at an apple farm and a chocolate factory. She picked out a small but very nice restaurant for lunch and then we continued our tour of the city on foot. Francine gave us a great opportunity to see Quebec through the eyes of a well educated local. A most enjoyable day!

What a wonderfully enjoyable day! Lunch with Francine was so charming. She was also a wealth of information about France, Spain, and Portugal.
Cheryl ArztUnited States
Francine gave us a complete tour of Quebec explaining anything the four of us, (two senior Grandparents and an 18 year old and 20 year old) asked about. Our driver was very good at getting through the narrow streets. Francine spoke English very well, slowly, so that we all could understand and hear her. She showed us everything on our tour, but we all loved the falls and island tour the best. We highly recommend her to any age tourists. We will call Toursbylocals again because the tour was excellent.

Randall ScottUnited States
Our guide, Francine, was excellent. We had customized the standard Quebec Old Town tour to include a trip to Mt. Saint Anne where my wife and I met more than 20 years ago. Francine skied a lot at Mt. Saint Anne and she was able to describe the changes that have happened at the mountain since we were there and was able to locate the trail where we first met. We had a great lunch with our guide and thoroughly enjoyed our tour of historic Quebec. It was an excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice comments. I am happy to know that your visit to commemorate your romance was a good experience Francine

Joseph ProsserUnited States
I've been to Quebec City before and taken a bus tour. No comparison! Having Francine as a personal guide was like having a friend show us around. Her knowledge of the region is extensive and we enjoyed every little morsel she could give us. A bike race hindered our moving around in town, but getting to see some of the race was a plus. Had a nice lunch too. Francine tolerated my attempts to speak French, so I give her a perfect score. I just can't believe she has never tried poutine.

Francine was very nice, but we want to hear more on the old section of Quebec City & history. The driving part was good, but the walking section was not. She was always 25 feet ahead of us. My husband is a slow walker and we always felt we were at a run just to try to keep up. We were a little tired that day, but she should of walked at our pace. Need more on Citadel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry that you felt disconnected from me,that day the sidewalk was crowded and it was not easy to walk side by side with 3 people.I stopped to wait for you as much as possible and also started the tour 3 hours later to accommodate your requests.Please also note that the Citadelle was not a part of the tour that you booked. I will take your comments into consideration for the future, thank-you. Francine

The tour that Francine planned and provided for us (3 women on vacation in Quebec City for the first time) was excellent! She knows the area and its history so well and included sights that other tours don't include. She is personable and professional. We took the 6 hour tour that includes driving out to Montmorency Falls and Isle d'Orleans and a walking tour through Quebec City. We loved our tour and it made our time in Quebec City much more enjoyable! Thanks Francine! The three Leos

She was knowledgable about the culture, sites to see and about Quebec's fascinating history.She was easily understood and frequently checked with us about our interests and desire to make slight changes as needed ( quick bite for lunch). Being in her company was relaxing and enjoyable.

Andrea KaiserUnited States
Francine set up a wonderful day of touring outside Quebec City. We toured the falls, the famous church, visited some beautiful and historic neighborhoods, had lunch in a old inn with terrific food and great charm. Spending a day with Francine is a pleasure for the curious intellect and for her personal knowledge of the area. We saw the sites through her eyes and were very moved. She is also great fun! We looked forward to our third of three days together. Wish there could have been more!
We really enjoyed out tour with Francine. She is very knowledgeable about the history and local area. She loves her city.....it really shows making the tour even more enjoyable.

Arnold ChaseUnited States
Francine was an excellent guide to Quebec City and particularly sensitive to Arnie's physical limitations. We enjoyed going to the Ile d'Orleans, visiting the chocolate factory and the vineyard. Francine chose an excellent place for lunch (La Panache)and was a delightful lunch companion. Her knowledge of the City and the area was deep and told well without lecturing. If we come back, we will surely contact her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment and I will be very happy to be your tour guide again
