My two girlfriends and I booked a day long tour of Quebec City, Montmorency Falls, and St. Ann's and it was the highlight of our Canada trip. Claude is everything you expect a guide to be - but he offers so much more. He accommodated our slow place and changes to the itinerary with aplomb and grace. He truly wants you to have a great experience and love Quebec as much as he does. Take one or more of his tours you won't be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. Your comment goes straight to my heart. I too had a great day with your friends and you.

Claude designed a perfect tour for us. We avoided the big crowds and saw all the sights with expert commentary. He never rushed us and encouraged us to enjoy at our own pace. But kept us on track to see everything in the scheduled time. He was professional, knowledgeable, and engaging. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Thank you Claude and Tours by locals !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this so positive comment. As travelers are on vacation, I always make sure to give them time to enjoy the charms of this beautiful historic city. You've appreciated the tour I'm happy. Take care.

The Ideal Tour for Cruise Passengers was our first experience with Tours By Locals and—thanks to our guide/driver, Claude B. —it is the beginning of a longstanding relationship. The tour was well paced, including a walking portion at the onset & concluding with a chauffeured portion towards the end. Claude was knowledgeable, punctual, adaptable, and gracious. As a native of Quebec City, Claude is justifiably proud of his hometown and willing to share its treasures. The tour made our day memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment. As David Swanson rightly said, "we never have a second chance to make a good first impression," I am pleased to have made your first experience with Tours By Locals such a positive experience.

Claude willingly adjusted the tour to our wishes. Although we took several other tours earlier in our trip, he found many things for us to experience that we hadn't done previously. He is engaging, lively, is very interested in providing his guests a great experience, and informative. I would encourage anyone who wants to learn more about Quebec and Quebec military history, to take his tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment ! It was a challenge to propose different and interesting activities, especially since you had the time, during the two previous weeks, to discover most of the attractions of Quebec City. It's important to adapt a tour to meet the traveler's expectations. I am very happy that I've taken up this challenge to your satisfaction.

The weather was bitter cold when my husband and I disembarked from our cruise ship a few minutes late. Claude was there, out in the elements, waiting for us. We had a nice tour, with stops here and there for a breather while Claude explained some of the highlights of Quebec. Our time together was just a few hours, but with Claude we saw and learned about things that we otherwise would not have noticed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. I really appreciate. I’m always happy to introduce travelers to this beautiful city, rich in history of which Champlain, the founder, would surely be very proud today!

Great walking tour of Quebec City with a drive to see Montmorency Falls and Ile d'Orleans and also the shrine to the east. Loved the history and the views of the area. I particularly enjoyed our walk through the Old Town and the falls. Thanks for a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. It was a great day for me too ! It's always motivating for a tour guide when travelers are interested in the information we provide about the sites, attractions and history.

Claude was a wonderful guide, and very accommodating to my 89 year old mother (who had recently broken her arm). He designed a perfect tour that included both car rides and short walks to see tremendous sights in Quebec City. All three of us were delighted!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your comment. The satisfaction of every traveler is really important to me. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour I designed. Special greetings to your lovely Mom!

Claude went above and beyond to make our private tour complete and informative. He was flexible to the itinerary in order for us to see what we wanted to see and to eliminate a few things we had already seen. Since my group of 6 were Americans, we were pleased Claude spoke precise English. We appreciated his sharing some personal knowledge and since we were all Catholics, we appreciated his sharing of his Catholic life as we toured a gorgeous cathedral. Would highly recommend Claude for a tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment. I'm very happy that you've appreciated the tour. I have a precious memory of this tour of Quebec City and area.I spent a wonderful day with you and your friends.

Claude created a custom tour that fit our needs perfectly. His knowledge of Quebec's sites and history was excellent. My wife and I would highly recommend Claude to anyone traveling to this beautiful destination.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice comment. I am always happy when travelers appreciate the customized tours I crete for them. This means that I have well understood their needs and expectations. I am especially happy to have given you the taste to come back to Quebec City in a next future. Be happy !
Margaret MayUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow! What could I say more than THANKS for this beautiful testimony of appreciation. I had a wonderful day with you. I hope to see you soon in Quebec City. An hug to you and to your lovely Mom. Take care

Our tour was so wonderful, we decided we wanted to return to Quebec and spend more time! Our guide, Claude Beauchamp, was friendly, personable, knowledgeable and easy going as far as our pace and desires of what we wanted to see. We recommend Claude highly.

This was the second tour with Claude this past weekend. It was excellent, but see the comments on the first tour for more details. We highly recommend Claude.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for that comment and thank you for the two great tours of the last week-end. It's always motivating for a guide to accompany tourists as interested and passionate as you. I really enjoyed this weekend. For my part, I give you 5 stars without any difficulty !
Roger BarnaUnited States
We enjoyed two Quebec City tours with Claude. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible to meet our specific needs. We were interested in genealogy and history as some of my wife's ancestors settled in New France in the 1600's. Claude helped us find their land and memorials, and understand more of their lives and times. He recommended restaurants and museums to supplement our tours. Thanks to Claude we had a delightful and productive visit to Quebec City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: This tour was very informative for me too and your great interest in genealogy was contagious. I have already undertaken research to learn more about my ancestors. Thank you for being so passionate. Be happy and stay healthy!
Joseph DreyfussUnited States
Claude was extremely knowledgeable and very gracious. We had a wonderful time with him and we were able to see everything that Claude promised. We would recommend Claude highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I also had a wonderful day with you and your wife and I am really happy to have lived up to your expectations. I always do my best to meet the highest expectations of each traveler. Thank you for your recommendation. I really appreciate it. Take care!

Claude provides us with a professional yet personal tour. I had requested a visit the cemetery where my 5 and 4 times Great Grandparents were buried. He researched the information I sent him, and took us right to the church and cemetary. The church was closed, but he went back a few days later and took pics inside the church and emailed them to me. We were also able to visit other important areas of Quebec City. Excellent guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comment. I really appreciate. You know, I'm always proud to share my passion for Quebec City and its area and to add some extras to increase the satisfaction of the travelers. It's my way of thanking them for the confidence they have given me in choosing me as a guide.
