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

I took a tour for this event during the Halloween Night and I was really impressed by the intensity of the activity. Everyone should try this once in their life if they traveled to Quebec City! I was so impressed by the acting of each actors and actresses and besides, it was educative on the history of New France by... More

We took an English language tour (crimes of New France) on October 2nd. This is great tour that focuses on crime and punishment in 18th century New France. MO is an outstanding guide. Wear your walking shoes and dress for cold wind. We also took the tour before orienting ourselves to the city, but the locals were helpful getting us... More

First, if you don't speak French, ask for Kristiana, she was incredible. Second, make sure you have good walking shoes and maybe a light jacket or sweater, as you will be out and walking a lot. Third, just enjoy and try to go along with the story telling, it was so much fun. And watch out for the beasts that... More

I have to say that I have done a Ghost Tour in every city I have ever visited. This one was no different with the exception that it was not what I expected. Generally I am used to following a guide who would tell stories as if we were surrounding a camp fire. I was pleasantly surprised to find out... More

A fun and interactive way to learn about Quebec history walking around town. Marie Christine was exceptional and so were other members of the group. Highly recommended but might not be suit abs for easily spooked children :-)
