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.
