Gregory FrescolnUnited States
Steve is knowledgeable, interesting and is a great advocate for Quebec, its culture, and history. Not only does he act as a guide, but he provides his personal experience and knowledge of the people of the region as an offering to his customers. Rarely have we met a guide with so much personality. He was fun to be with and if we lived here we would want to be his friend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour monsieur and madame Frescoln, thank you so much for your kind comments. It was such a pleasure to spend the day with you and share the beauty of Quebec City. Cheers, Steeve
Janet SteinerUnited States
Steeve was truly an exceptional guide. We spent about 5.5 hours with him in Quebec City and the four of us were most impressed by his knowledge of the history and of the local color. We walked for the first part of the tour and enjoyed beautiful historic city streets and then drove to see the countryside enjoying special stops along the way. Steeve loves his job and his statement "When I no longer have the passion for being a tour guide, I'll find something else to do" sums up that enthusiasm.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour madame Steiner, merci for your kind comments. I really enjoyed spending time with all of you and am glad you enjoyed the city and its surrounding. Cheers, Steeve
Chuck GreimanUnited States

Teresa GongUnited States
Look no further, book Steeve! He is a very nice and professional guide. His knowledge of history, architecture, religion & politics of the area, art seemed limitless. He knows a great many of the business owners, local farmers and artists, so just tell Steeve what the needs and interests of your group are and then sit back and enjoy your day. Steeve was our first guide along a 13 day trip. Although we had other good tours, NO ONE was as good as Steeve.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour madame and monsieur Gong, merci beaucoup for your kind comments. It was such a delight to spend the day with all of you. I think that what the two of you did for your family is invaluable! You are so kind...I sincerely hope our paths will cross again and rest assured that when I get back in your area I will let you know and would love to come and visit! Cheers, Steeve
Herb HeichertUnited States
Steeve is an incredible guide with amazing knowledge and pride in Quebec City. His enthusiasm is contagious and his organizational skills brought us to so many sights in one day. He always dropped us off near whatever we were there to see and parked the car so we didn't need to walk too far. He has a voice that even with hearing aids my husband could hear every word . Wish we could have spent another day with Steeve.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour madame and monsieur Heichert, it was such a pleasure to spend the day with all of you. Guiding you was not a job, you made it so easy for me. I am glad you appreciated visiting our beautiful city and I hope our paths are going to cross again... Cheers, Steeve

Sherwood SterlingIndio, CA, United States
If there were a 10 star rating, Steeve would deserve one. My wife and I have enjoyed many guides from Tours by Locals all over the world and we never have had anyone so knowledgeable, thorough and considerate. I cannot recommend Steve more highly and enthusiastically. We hope to return and visit with him again soon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour, thank you so much for your kind comments! It was such a delight to spend the day with the four of you. I sincerely hope our paths will cross again one day! You were very kind! Cheers, Steeve
The tour we took with Steeve was a highlight for our holiday in Quebec city! Steeve was a great host and customized the tour to our interests, highlighting the history and local culture as we toured through old Quebec as well as the surrounding countryside. We were all so impressed with his knowledge and how everyone seemed to know him at the various bakeries, gourmet shops and markets. In the end, he was so generous, courteous and made us feel like a dear friend and welcomed guest to Quebec.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Ladies! It was such a pleasure and privilege to spend the day with you and meet you! Thank you so much for everything and for being such nice people. I would love to have our paths meet again and rest assured that I will let you know if I show up in your areas! Merci beaucoup! Cheers, Steeve, xxx
Merry EvansUnited States
Steeve was fantastic! He was friendly, knowledgeable and easy to be with! He knew all the perfect stops to make, all the highlights of Vieux Quebec--and treated us to several local artisan foods that truly gave us a flavor of Quebec! All the way around, it was an extraordinary day! Don't hesitate to book a tour with Steeve. You'll be glad you did! Four Happy Travelers from Florida and Maryland

Carol J.United States
Steeve was parked in a convenient spot on the dock and was easy to find. One of our party of 6 was a recent amputee, and his comfort and needs were considered. Very knowledgeable on local history, which was well presented and kept everybody interested. Impressed with variety of stops. Lunch stop was well-chosen for quality and price. Good job, Steeve!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour madame Jacobson, thank you for your kind comments! Too bad you could not join us on this tour...so kind of you to leave your spot to your family members... I had a very good time with them and they were well behaved!!!! Just joking. Please give them my regards, cheers, Steeve
Richard B.Stinchcombe, United Kingdom
The perfect guide for such a perfect place. Looking back now, Quebec was one of the highlights of our tour of Canada and Steeve just made the day. Well done and I recommend him to all!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour monsieur Bartlam and thank you for your kind comments. I am so glad you enjoyed our beautiful city and that I helped you enjoy it. Happy holidays, cheers, Steeve
Karen GodwinUnited States
Steeve's love for his city and the people comes brought in the tour. The four of us on the tour agreed it was one of the very best, if not THE best, we have ever taken---and we have taken many, many tours. Steeve tailors the tour to fit your group, he knows his history, but doesn't lecture, he knows all the local places to get great food, and he makes it fun. Out of 5 stars, my husband and I give him 10!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Madame and Monsieur Godwin, thank you so much for your amazing comments. It was such a beautiful day we spent together! The weather, the food and eachother's company! Hope our paths will cross again, cheers, Steeve
Carrie HillUnited States
Great overall highlight tour of Quebec! Steeve is very knowledgeable and entertaining . We had an incredible day thank you !!

Michael IgoeAurora, COLORADO, United States
Excellent! A great sense of humor, and a wealth of local information. Very pleasant raconteur. Safe driver. Solicitous of his client's health and welfare. All around, as I said, an excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Michael, thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you. I really enjoyed sharing our stories and you made me laugh!! Hope you had a safe trip back, cheers, Steeve
Paul KalmsUnited States
Our group of four spent 2 days touring with Steeve and we only have good things to say. Excellent guide, very flexible, superb knowledge of history and current events, fluent English, and generally a most interesting person to spend our days with. We would highly recommend him and would definitely tour with him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour la famille Kalms!!! What a great time I had with you over the two days. You were so into it and eager to discover. You know how to travel and get the best out of the places you visits. Hope our paths will cross again, thanks again, Steeve
Kelly HeitkampUnited States
Steeve is not only from Quebec, but he LOVES the history of Quebec. It is evident he has been a student of the city for his entire life. He explained intimate details that one could only learn by being present when events happened or from those who had. These are small things but collectively it made the tour magical. The following day I overhead a few guides stumbling through questions that Steeve answered in detail, an example is "the cat in the window." Brilliantly enchanting!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow!!! Thank you so much for your kind comments. You know, it was such a pleasure to spend time with you and the girls. I just adapted to the situation and we just walked and talked about the history and the culture but it seemed to be so easy and it was so fluid and no pressure... I would do that again anytime! You are a kind person Madame Heitkamp. Thank you for being you! Cheers, Steeve
Sharon SouzaUnited States
Excellent tour. Steeve is very knowledgeable about the history of Quebec and the Orleans Island. He made the tour very fun and interesting. Stopped whenever we wanted and always asked if we wanted to go different places before we went there. Couldn't have had a better guide! One of the best tours we ever had!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour madame Souza, merci beaucoup for your kind comments! I had an awesome time with the 4 of you. Cheers, Steeve
Patti ThorsonUnited States
Steeve, THANK YOU for a most wonderful day!!! We all so enjoyed the tour and zip lining Montmorency Falls. The whole experience far exceeded our expectations and we all hope to be able to come back to Quebec on another trip soon. Thank You again for everything!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Patti, merci beaucoup for your nice comments. I had such a good time with you. So exciting that I forgot my drivers licence at the zip lining place...I got it back but thank you for letting me know. You have a very nice family and now I can just hope I will be in the type of shape your dad is in at his age!!! Cheers, Steeve
David ChapmanNew Zealand
Absolutely fantastic! He was great company, very informatic with an amazing knowledge of the area. We had an wonderful tour that was thoroughly enjoyable,relaxed and most interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour madame Roth, thank you very much for your comments. I had an awesome time with you and your sister. You were very pleasant and entertaining. I learned a lot about the food industry. Cheers, Steeve

Excellent all the way around. Started promptly and did not make feel rushed. Took our desires for sights to see into account as well as the ones we had walked to on our own the day before. Very, very knowledgeable. Very friendly. A world traveler able to relate what we were seeing and visiting to other of our travel experiences. Showed us much more than the major tourism sights. We enjoyed the day immensely. You cannot go wrong booking with Steve.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour madame et monsieur Trenta, thank you so much for your very nice comments. I really enjoyed my day with you as well. There are some amazing people in this world and you are among those people. Faith is a wonderful thing! Safe travel, cheers, Steeve
Curtis AmenUnited States
Our 7 hour private tour with Steeve was the hi-lite of our cruise to New England and Canada. Steeve was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Quebec and fit this with the history of the US. We were a family of 5 with some physical difficulties and Steeve made sure we all were able to see and enjoy it all. We were able to see what is included on the walking tours and he took to areas that were not on larger tours. Steeve is proud to be a native of Quebec and let this pride show through!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, monsieur Amen, I had a great time with you. No offense but your wife's mother was the highlite of my day! It was a pleasure to share that wonderful day with you all and I hope the futur will bring you happiness and health. Thanks again, Steeve
Donald PachUnited States
Steeve did an excellent job for our group of five adults. He was courteous and knew the city and environs with great expertise . He met our expectations and then some. All in all a good value. We would surely recommend him to others with a first time visit to Quebec City. Sue and Donald P.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice comments. I certainly enjoyed your company all day and do not hesitate to contact me if you are ever back in our beautiful city! Cheers, Steeve

Steve was a wonderful guide. He was able to pace the tour so my parents with mobility issues were able to enjoy the day. I would highly recommend his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Steve, I like that pace as we take time to tale it all in. Was great to spend the day with the three of you...
Barbara BennettUnited States

Janis SalinUnited States
I feel so lucky that we selected Steeve as our guide. I truly believe that no one could've done a better job of showing us the culture and beauty of Quebec City and the Orleans island. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and thoughtful. When we come back to Quebec, we'll be requesting advice and suggestions from Steeve.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci madame Salin. It was such a delight to spend the day with you two. You brought us the sun as well! Hope our paths will cross again! Cheers, Steeve
John PalmerUnited States
Steeve does an absolutely fantastic job. We had several requests and he made sure the trip was exactly as we requested. His total focus was on insuring we had a great time. We have taken many tours and Steeve is by far the most professional, interesting, knowledgeable guide we have ever experienced. If you have the opportunity to use his services, grab him if he is available. He knows how to treat visitors and actually trains other guides.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much monsieur Palmer. I had such a good time with you all. Your smiles and willingness to explore and learn about our beautiful city made it that much more interesting. Cheers, Steeve
Owen CarterUnited States
Steeve met us on schedule at our ship, and we jointly set a schedule to allow one visitor to return to the ship after four hours, while the others continued on. He provided a very diverse tour of Quebec City and the adjacent island, showing us both world famous sites and local items of interest. His descriptions were both interesting and thorough, and his knowledge was very broad. He arranged for us to lunch at a local restaurant with great atmosphere. He is a competent,interesting,and entertaining guide.
We had a really wonderful tour. Walked lower town, lots of delightful shops and interesting buildings. Travelled to Isle d'Orleans and visited interesting businesses all the while Steeve giving us anecdotes about people on the island. Had a tasty lunch at a bakery, bought many apple products, chocolate and a wine tasting. Also a visit to the Montmorency falls.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour madame Parsons, indeed it was a good day and I am glad you keep a good souvenir from it. Great meeting you all! Cheers, Steeve
Dorothy BoughtonUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Quebec city with Steeve. He was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. We had some sites we wanted to see and he was very agreeable to adjust his tour to accommodate these changes. He also showed us sites not normally on tours that added greatly to our knowledge of the area. We would highly recommend him to anyone and know that they would also have a great experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Dorothy, thank you so much for your kind comments and I enjoyed every minute of my day with you as well. You are very kind people. Aurevoir, Steeve
Patrick TimmsUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Steeve coming off a Holland American cruise ship. He met us off the ship and was able to accommodate our day around a bicycle Grand Prix which had most of Quebec City closed. We had a wonderful visit to the Falls and Island of Orleans. He was very considerate to the needs of my wife who had mobility issues following several leg surgeries. Steeve is very personable and knowledgable about Quebec City and took us to many out of the ways places where the tour buses do not go.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Doctor Timms, thank you so much for your kind words, but even more, thank you for your immense flexibility during our tour considering everything that was happening in town. I had a wonderful time with you and your wife and I will be waiting to hear from you about that salmon recipe! Cheers, Steeve

Marianne LongUnited States
I have been traveling for over 45 years and would rate Steeve is one of the top tour guides. He's someone who gives it his all and shares his love of the city, culture and history with you. It was the highlight of our vacation. No one can top his passion and dedication to what he does. We had a group of six people and everyone was felt the same way about this tour. He made us all want to come back again. He accommodated our every request and whim. He treated us to many unique food experiences.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Madame Long, I had such a good time with you guys. You were so open minded to learned and try new things. Guiding with people like you makes it so enjoyable. Thank you so much, Steeve
Jaime RoblesgilUnited States
My family and I had a great experience with Steev. Charming personality and very knowledgeable ... he made the trip interesting for my kids (7 & 9) as well as for my wife and I. He took us to obvious locations and told us fun and interesting stories about them, but also took us to not so obvious places which were a delight. Overall great experience and fully recommended.
Donna SebrenUnited States
Steeve picked us up at our condo and that was the beginning of an awesome tour of Quebec City. He was informative of the history of the area and told some great stories. He adjusted our itinerary to what we could do with our walking disabilities. We toured the Old Town and Quebec City in a van. We then went to the Falls and accross the bridge to isle de Orleans and the fall foliage was beautiful and picturesque farms and small villages. After a day with Steeve we felt like good friends.
George OverendUnited States
We had an excellent tour of Quebec City with Steeve. We could not have been more pleased and recommend him unhesitatingly.
Rex WilliamsUnited States
We travel alot and this tour was without question one of the best we have ever had. Steeve was a superb guide with an outstanding grasp of the history of Quebec City and the surrounding area. His dedication to his profession was obvious beginning with him finding us even though our ship did not dock at its projected terminal. If you are visiting Quebec City and only have a day for a tour, this needs to be the one you take.
We had a fantastic day with Steeve. He was very personable, knowledgeable and professional. He provided a really good itinerary, and then adapted it to our personal interests. We loved our tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comments Pam! I had a great day too! Kindly, Steeve
