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

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
