Francine was delightful. I have a walking problem so she had to do it all with car. We saw everything. Because we finished a little ahead of time because we did not walk around she even took us to the waterfall. She then dropped us at Chateau Frontenac where we had a lunch reservation.

Francine was a wonderful guide in her city. She grew up and retired there, so the history and information we received were truly from a local. Francine was a very gracious host and answered all of our questions about the culture there. She is also very in the know about the local restaurant scene, with all of her recommendations being spot on. The tour was 3 hours with my wife and I. We've used Tours By Locals 4 times now, and have always had tremendous guides, with Francine being no exception!

Francine was a delight to have as a guide. Always concerned with the itinerary and that we were comfortable and able to see/visit the sites. Her knowledge of the area and history of many of the sites was most informative. Montmorency Falls is spectaculare and the trip to the Isle was very interesting and informative. Do not miss the visits to the cider and chocolate shops - you will really enjoy the stops. Definately the way to travel if you are interested in the area outside of Quebec City.

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!

Delightful, knowledgeable guide that made the three hours pass very quickly. She pointed out many factoids about sights, restaurants, and history that allowed us to return and follow up the next day for more detail or visits to museums. She really loves Quebec and it shows in her delivery. This is a "must" tour and Francine is a "must" guide for all first time visitors.

We saw everything we wanted to see and more at a pleasant pace for two 60+ parents and two 13-year-olds. Francine tailored the tour for the four of us, and was very sensitive to our needs and interests.

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.

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 knowledgeable and accomodating on our tour. The tour was for my partner and I, and my parents. My parents walked very slowly, and Francine accomodated by stopping frequently for us and finding places to sit while she explained the sites. She totally tailored the tour for our needs, and my parents got a lot out of it. My partner and I have been to Quebec City before too, but we also learned a lot! It was a great tour, highly recommended.

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

We contacted Francine about our tour in early May. We wanted a tour of Québec city that a local, unbiased citizen would give us which was things that they thought were interesting and worth seeing in the city. Francine did a wonderful job of coming up with a tour which was just wonderful. She is personable, she is very knowledgeable, and I definitely would use her again were I coming to Québec City.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tanks again ,you are welcome here

We had set up tour of the Wendake Native American village for our 1st half day in Québec city Québec. When our boat pulled in to the harbor they transported us to our hotel. The people in the hotel got in touch with our guide, Francine. True to her word she arrived at 1 PM on the dot. She turned out to be quite good at her job and very personable as far as my wife and I were concerned. It was a long taxi ride up to the village and she explained things as we went so that we would understand what was to hap

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Tanks for your coments

Francine was great. We had a little bit of a cold day, but Francine took us to places sheltered from the winds for a great tour of the old city. Francine mixed comments on architecture, history, politics, local food options and general information into a great blend of information for us and our two teenagers. Really nice and highly recommended.

Francine was an absolutely charming, personable, and extremely knowledgeable guide for our walking tour of Quebec City. A true local who's lived in the city virtually all her life, she is proud and passionate about Quebec and it's history, and obviously enjoys what she's doing. A great afternoon at a very comfortable pace - we can't recommend her highly enough!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice comments Hope you will come back soon Francine

Of course, it didn't hurt that we had a sunny, clear, crisp October morning to enjoy the spectacular Fall foliage at spectacular Montmorency Falls and on picturesque Isle d'Orleans! But Francine simply made our day one to remember -- she was a superb guide: charming, informative, interesting (and interested!). Our pace was perfect -- we never felt hurried or "herded!" SO much more enjoyable than a guided tour on a bus!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your Nice comments

a very pleasant person, she showed us everything and several things that were not Fodor's high points, and made some great recommendations for things to do on our own. Would highly recommend 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
