A great tour but there are a lot of stairs which was difficult for me while wearing a mask as I have asthma. Nonethless, a beautiful place to see.

Didn't live up to expectations

The guide was a colourful narrator and played the part well. Unfortunately, we didn't see too much of the Frontenac. We expected to hear more historical stories and see more of the back areas and hidden gems of this amazing place.

Bonjour, Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions with us. We are happy that our guide was able to meet up your expectations but sorry that you felt like not enough back areas were included in the tour. Considering that the Château Frontenac is a very popular hotel with a high occupancy rate and hosting quite a few business events, we must admit we sometimes face a few challenges in terms of room/area availability. Unfortunately, this is out of our control as an external tour company, despite the excellent collaboration with the Château Frontenac team. But all of our guides are definitely trained to deal with such situation and will do everything possible to compensate the unavailability of certain rooms in order to minimize the impact on the guest experience.

Great history of the place offered and got to see some of the spaces you may not get to see otherwise. Definitely cheaper than staying there!

This was a TERRIFIC tour. There’s no way we could have learned so much by walking around ourselves or by reading. The hour flew by. Our “guide” in costume as the mayor of QC in 1890 made it really easy to move your thoughts back to that time. Best way to spend an hour in Quebec.

The tour was great even though we started outside in a down pour. The history of the Château Frontenac and learning about the different phases of construction was fun

I enjoyed seeing Mr Frontenac in traditional attire. He was knowledgable about the history of the Chateau, providing interesting facts about each room we saw. Although he was not able to answer a few trivial questions (l suspect there may have been a slight language barrier) he is a pleasant guide and worth the money. If you enjoy history l definitely recommend taking the tour.
