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!

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.

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

Francine did an excellent job of answering questions and communicating prior to the tour, arrived at our meeting point as scheduled and completed all the points of interest we had requested and many, many more. She is very well educated in the culture and history of Quebec City and province, giving us much information on the area and sites as we toured. I would definitely use Francine again and would highly recommend her to those interested in the many benefits of a very personalized individual tour.

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

Francine was very fluent in English and French. She had a career as a teacher, and understood Quebec and its culture extremely well. She helped us understand the Quebcans' viewpoints. We toured the countryside and then walked through the town, with her explanations filling in the history of the great city. An excellent and very personable guide.

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

Francine was delightful guide for our first visit to Quebec City. 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.

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!

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.
