My wife and I had a wonderful, relaxed and educational day with Diane. We were never rushed and she had excellent knowledge about this beautiful place. She was clearly personally familiar with some of the artists we visited and through that connection made us feel very much at home. I would recommend her if someone is looking for an intimate personal tour of Quebec City and the surrounding area. If you come in late October be sure to bundle up for the weather.. We had such great fun with Diane!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for excellent rating !

The weather caused us not to go across the river, but Diane took us to nooks and crannies in both the upper and lower town.....that were fabulous. Diane's love of the city shows in every minute of touring. She is a font on energy and information. We highly recommend her as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much fro your rating !

Our day with Diane was the highlight of our trip. She went out of her way to show us the actual house my ancestors lived in. She did the research on her own. She is like a personal friend showing you her city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you !
Ellen JohnsonUnited States
Diane was a superb tour guide!! She saw that I walk with a cane and immediately made a few modifications to the stops. She was also very solicitous, helping me with doors and stairs. We saw everything on our wish list and more, a full six hours. Diane had many "insider" stories to share and a great amount of historical detail. We chose to have her drive our Honda Odyssey, and she was very careful and capable. Can not recommend her more highly—10 stars!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comments ! You are a lovely lady !

What a fun afternoon with Diane. Very knowledgeable about the history of Quebec and Quebec city. Crammed an awful lot into 2.5 hours without our feeling rushed.

Our tour guide, Diane B. , was wonderful! She was very nice, very knowledgeable of the history of the area, and went above and beyond doing additional research on our ancestors who were settlers in Quebec City area. Our tour with her exceeded our expectations, and we were very pleased. Thank you Diane ��
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your rating. You are a very nice lady.

Diane was the perfect tour guide. We were on an ancestry tour. I gave her the names of my ancestors beforehand and she was able to take us to the spots that had personal significance. I highly recommend her for any tour you are thinking about doing in QUEBEC CITY and surrounding area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your rating ! You are a very nice couple. I really enjoy doing ancestral tours. Diane

We had an excellent tour of Old Quebec and Orleans Island with Diane. She was very flexible in accommodating our needs and requests, and she had excellent suggestions for stops at a bakery, chocolate shop and grocery store. It was a beautiful autumn day and Diane's enthusiasm for being on the island that day was infectious. We felt as if it was a day trip with a friend. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your rating. I really enjoyed being with you and your mother.
Martha BryantUnited States
Having spent the first three days of our visit to Quebec City, mostly in Old Town, we wanted to experience some of the other, more rural parts and opted for the Orleans Island-Montmorency Falls tour. We had previously had Diane as a guide for a walking tour at the beginning of our trip and were very happy to have her once again for this one. Besides the falls, she drove us to many other interesting sites and told us fascinating stories along the way. We would be happy to be on any tour with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for you wonderful message. It was a pleasure to be with all of you ! Diane
Martha BryantUnited States
Diane did a great job giving us the highlights of Old Town on our walking tour. She was very open to requests and made sure our small group of four senior citizens were comfortable the whole time. It was a great introduction to our 5-day tour of the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating ! You are a happy and easy-going group ! Diane
Edward JahnUnited States
Diane gave us a great tour with almost six hours showing us (first time visitors to Quebec City) what the City is like from the old city to middle class neighborhoods, Orleans Island, the Falls, the Huron reservation and their unique hotel, and a delightful place for lunch. You will learn about the uniqueness of Quebec and how the dominance of the French language has lead many anglophiles to leave but how Quebec has (twice) voted to remain a part of Canada rather than becoming an independent country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating and wonderful comments. You are a very nice couple !

Claudia RozukUnited States
Diane is a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable. She has a good sense of humor that she uses to highlight the history. I would highly recommend walking with her. She recommended a restaurant and we took her advice for our good-bye dinner and it was a lovely relaxing atmosphere and great food. We had a family tragedy the evening before and one of our group got many phone calls during our walk, but Diane was patient and took the distraction in stride. I appreciated her patience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your rating, I enjoyed every minutes with the three of you !

Susan KintnerUnited States
Diane gave us a very thorough tour of Old Quebec. Her enthusiasm and knowledge made the time fly. We had an interesting interaction with an older Ursuline nun in the chapel at the school. It was totally unexpected and quite lovely. Also tea at a gallery was very fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Kintner, I had a great time as a Historical Tour Guide of Quebec City. Your great interest was a blessing to me.
We required more spontaneous information, particularly regarding the history and development of the region. The information provided was good
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am a Historical Tour Guide in Quebec City, so my tours are mostly historical. My information is accurate as I hold a Tourism College degree from Merici College in Quebec City, where I learned about our ancestor's life. Diane
Henry LiebermanUnited States
Diane did a fine job with this tour. It was a bit repetitive since it featured houses in the countryside but overall a fine job
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your rating. I did a Best of Old Quebec Walking tour in the morning and immediately after a countryside tour.

Roger BylundUnited States
Our Tour was comprehensive and provided the history of old Quebec as well as current attractions. Diane was friendly accommodating and very informative. We enjoyed our time very much and highly recommend her tours. She is an accomplished guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. and Mrs. Bylund, I really enjoyed sharing my historical knowledge about New France Era with you and your wife. The Best of Old Quebec Tour is one of my favorite tour because I recount short anecdotes and we have plenty of time to see the French architecture of our ancestors' houses. Diane
Kenneth SimonsUnited States
Made the extra effort to arrange a meeting with a distant relative ( an ancestor tour). Researched information that was not part of the typical tour. Very personable and accommodating. Made all scheduled (requested ) stops , satisfied the terms of the arrangement . Would recommend tour guide to others wanting to tour Quebec or I'le d Orleans,
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Simons, Thank you so much for your excellent comments ! It was a pleasure to do this tour with you and your family ! Diane
Judy EvansUnited States
Diane was well organized and had planned our customized tour wonderfully. She was delightful and we enjoyed our day! We visited 3 parishes in the Quebec City area, and were able to find the graves of my 3 x great grandparents. I would highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Evans, I had a wonderful tour with you and your husband. I learn a lot while preparing this unusual tour. The King's daughters are the ancestors of so many Quebecers. Last week-end, I visited an other cemetery in the north of Beauport; seeing all those flowers everywhere on the site made me realized that there is a lot of love in a cemetery. And also, it help me understand that there is a link between the dead people and the living. I'm sure glad that I got to know you ! Diane
Kurt LysneUnited States
At our request, Diane provided a somewhat non-standard tour. We were delighted with her response to our request. Diane is full of enthusiasm and vitality, and she clearly enjoys her heritage in the Quebec City area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback, we had a wonderful tour!
