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

Firstly getting charged $27 for looking at wood and animal skin is a total rip off !! No english tour or guide. All the explanations are in FRENCH ! Took almost half hour extra to find the place. The worst tourist attraction ever. The only positive side is that the effort made to preserve the culture is worth crediting.

We went to this location with a guided tour group. We had 50 students and it was great. Lots of local history and great insight into another of our First Nations cultures. It was very cool! Great gift shop at the end also showcasing local foods and arts.

We had a great evening here as a part of a business conference. The food was great, live French Canadian music and nice gift shop with Aboriginal art and items from across Canada. The youth who performed were excellent. Some of the displays are dated and need sprucing up. To me this site showcased the ways that the Aboriginal people... More

So even though I emailed to ask about an English guide, and they told me to come anytime on a certain day, when I arrived, there was no English guide. And the French tour had left 10 minutes earlier (on the hour, although they said in their email that there was no schedule of tours). Luckily I managed to catch... More

Interesting cultural site. They rebuilt the building the Huron Wendat were living in or using. The guide gives a lot of interesting information of the way of living if that first nation more than 400 years ago. A must if you come to Quebec City but not easy to get there if you don't have a car.
