I went on this tour with a teen and a woman in her young 20's. I am in my early 50's. We all were hoping to learn about the history of the city and enjoy the characters along the way. The tour was fun for about the first hour, but became very repetitive and boring as we on past two... More

I have traveled extensively and have my favorites and not-so-favorites. I have not posted a review to TripAdvisor before, but waned to do so for this tour as I felt they really deserved high praise. I was not surprised to see all the other terrific reviews posted here -- I made a point of reading the ONE poor review because... More

Our "Jean" was friendly, informative, & entertaining. He was also a trooper as he led our group despite a pretty steady drizzle. Just the right amount of time. Came away from the tour having learned more about crimes & punishment in New France.

It was a hot summer night and the actors were very demonstrative. The stories were good; however it went on too long and got a bit wearisome at the end.

This ghost tour was one of the highlights of our trip to old Quebec city. Our ghost guide Matthew a.k.a. Jean was animated, informative, amusing. We highly recommend this tour and especially this guide!

Absolutely loved the Interactive Street Theatre Crimes in New France tour. Lots of fun banter between the actors and participants. Good mix of history and theatre.

Our guide, who was in costume, met us right before sunset and we were off on the "crime and punishment" tour. Along the route we were told information related to many of the buildings and sites. Our guide also was partial in character and told of us the types of crimes and punishment committed by locals in Quebec City. The... More

We debated between the two ghost tour companies and eventually picked this one because the interactive street theatre sounded interesting. They don't have an office to buy tickets, and to buy online you needed to give a phone number and we didn't want to wait around by our hotel room phone, so we decided to just go to the meeting...

We had the 90 minute "crimes in new France" version, which was fun and informative. Our guide told us stories about criminals, their crimes and their punishments as we walked through Quebec City. He also told us interesting historical tidbits along the way. He was very, very funny and entertaining.
