I was very intrigued when I read about this on the internet... There aren't many places in Canada that you can go and learn about the first nations people from the people themselves. It costs $13 for the tour which is informative enough, but could have had a little more information for those of us who wanted to delve into... More

Wow! Glad I took a 20 minute walk from hotel to visit village traditionnel! You could go there by car too. Lots of parking. Well worth the visit. There were some group visits but I opted to go alone and was able to follow trails and signage. Writing is only in French for the most part so if you cannot... More

I was able to have a solo tour with the lovely English-speaking guide. The village is a small recreation of a traditional village. It is not al all slick or high tech but rather as it should be rustic and handmade.I was very interested in the display of canoe construction, the sweat "lodge", and the long house. I had difficulty... More

Our tour guide was very nice and informative and it was nice to hear his stories. Sad to hear how most of the culture was destroyed obviously. Food at the restaurant was okay but this is one part that could be improved as the quality was not amazing although the service and decor inside were nice.

We visited the Musee Huron-Wendat and this time around did not have time to continue on to the Site Traditionnel Huron, which the museum does not particularly advertise. While I would definitely consider the museum an excellent introduction to the Huron-Wendat culture I would skip the (one-hour) guided tour and continue on to the Site Traditionnel Huron. It's a few... More

Did not expect much once we arrived at its location in an industrial park, and my expectations were met. For $12 you get a guided tour (about 30 minutes) of the small park which has exhibits that illustrate aspects of native life. Our guide was a native fellow dressed in traditional garb. He was personable and reasonably entertaining. Overall the... More

The staff was very friendly and accommodated our request for an English-speaking tour - since we were the only 4 English speakers at the appointed time, we ended up with a private tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and open to questions. In addition to learning about the Huron culture, there are things from other indigenous North American cultures, such... More
