Description: The darkest years of New France are just around the corner with Promenades...
The darkest years of New France are just around the corner with Promenades Fantomes : The Original Ghost Walking Tour. In the very heart of old Quebec City, this unique and interactive experience will offer scares, laughs and history. Our friendly and knowledgeable ghostly guides will gladly uncover the darker side of history of the colony, recounting the stories of worst criminals, sentences and even torture practices of the French or English regimes. Meet some of the colony’s worst scoundrels with our interactive street theatre “Crimes in New-France” Discover local superstitions and legends of yore, and visit scenes where death has left its mark with “Legends and superstitions”. On a lighter note, our jolly ghosts invite you to come relive the old Christmas traditions or experience winter as the French settlers did in our tour “Christmas in New-France”. The executioner Jean Rattier and his wife Marie Riviere summon you, but one question remains: Will you dare to try it?

We had a blast! Very impressed with our tour guide's (JAMIE) historical knowledge and story telling abilities . Her English was excellent and her improv skills impeccable. Would recommend this tour to anyone who loves the kind of tour that shows the history of an area in a very ghoulish display of man's inhumanity to man! A real behind-the-scenes look... More

This was our first experience of Quebec City on our School Trip this past April. What a wonderful experience! The walk was excellent! We learned a lot of history about the area and the guides were very entertaining! I was very happy to do this with our grade 9 students! Awesome.

I really like this ghost tour. You got to see lots of upper-town and lower-town in the old city. The guide wasn't just wearing a cape, but was actually in full makeup and costume, and played the part. Some parts are a bit gruesome (it is about crime and punishment), so I wouldn't recommend it for very young kids or... More

My wife and I participated in this tour last evening. The group consisted of four participants, so almost a private tour! The guide was dressed up as the ghost of Marie, the wife apparently of an executioner who had been sent from France to help populate the French colony. Our tour focused on aspects of Marie's life, for the most... More

We were lucky enough to get a private tour... but that was basically because it was 2 degrees oF outside. Therefore, it was very personal. We had a great time on the "Crimes of New France" tour, learning about a few Québécois criminals and chatting with our guide, "Marie Rivière", even if she was a bit confused about our magic... More

It's more gruesome than scary. The tour is led by a zombie/ghost of a real-life person from the early days of Quebec. There's not really talk of ghosts or hauntings but more about crime and torture. There are some interesting stories and it's fun to learn about the history of the city as well as some of the shadier characters... More
