While at Quebec City we have had good and less good visits. This one was the best. Now you can do a pay as you go, or all inclusive. We did pay as you go ! We had tried to not pump the kids too much, but the visit of the 'long house' was great, light basic information. And our... More

I came to see Huron site without expectations. And in the beginning even made a fool of myself : the white hosts at this place did not inspire me to be serious. It all changed when during the tour I learned that the Hurons, and here I stopped calling them this French name, they are Wendat in their native tongue,... More

I definitely would recommend visiting this place if you are with a family or just a couple or a bunch of friends. It's fun, interactive and interesting... Well for those who like to learn about other cultures. The restaurant that offers traditional food is great. Nothing crazy on the menu, worth the try! I did the medicine wheel activity while...

I was surprised how few people seem to have heard of this place. I personally jumped at the idea of visiting a genuine open-air museum of native nations and saw it twice so far, enjoying every minute of it every time. About 30 minutes from Quebec City, the place provides a specific cuisine restaurant, a large gift shop and guided... More

We visited here not knowing what to expect. The Site is located in a reservation. We learned a great deal about the Huron and their lives and the lives of other "Amer-indiens" in Canada. The site may be small but well worth the visti.

Excellent guided tour and depiction of First Nation history and way of life. We really enjoyed the guided tour and appreciated the opportunity to gain an understanding of First Nation culture and challenges past and present.

They have a traditional village, great tour guides, interesting dances. Restaurant food was pricy for a small sample of elk, bison, deer, boar-depending on the menu you selected had 3 choices priced at $19+Canadian. It does include cranberry tea (weak) and sunflower soup (Ok ) not my favorite. They do have senior prices if you ask. Price is such that... More

Being from the US we had the concierge service book the Site Traditonnel Huron with an English speaking guide. She was young, professional and knew the information of her people. Being Huron, she knew the history and could also relate 2015 information of how things have changed and what the current living situation for the Hurons is like. All the... More
