This was our second trip to Quebec, my husband has a cousin there, so we are fortunate to have a Québécois showing us his town. This was the first we had heard of Wendake village, having known them as their more European name, the Hurons. We had a young woman guide, a member of the tribe. She was very good,... More

We loved our visit! It is a small site but lots is packed in and very informative! We had an English speaking guide which was very helpful and meant a smaller tour group (only the two of us spoke English at that time!). We bought the harvest special package which meant as well as the tour we could watch and... More

I booked my visit here through the tourism center in Quebec. I first inquired about the full tour where I would have an opportunity to see traditional dances, etc. However, I was told that they no longer have that option in English and was directed to the 2 hour tour instead. I was given the impression that it was a... More

This is close to the hotel but not part of their museum. There are tours in English and French. The tour guide we had was extremely knowledgeable. She gave us much information about how her people lived in the past but also about the dynamics of the reservation today. The longhouse and other structures are very interesting to study. They...

Allow plenty of time here. We took the shuttle bus from the Tourist Information office, (about a 20 minute ride) and got there just after 12 o'clock We had an early light lunch at Sagamite - one of the on site restaurants. We took the 1.30p.m. guided tour of the site with an extremely knowledgeable native guide who was very... More

Since we live on the east coast of the US, it is hard to learn and experience the life of the native americans/first nations of the continent. So while vacationing in Quebec City, it was a great chance to learn about these cultures. We took the extended discovery tour. Well worth the time. At first we viewed the museum, small... More

The Huron village is crammed onto a very small site. A small long house and other structures like a sweat lodge are included, as are non-Huron structures like a tipi. What made the site worthwhile was an incredible, very informative tour by a native guide, who explained everything from politics to history to religion in great detail - staying interesting... More

Very informative and people were welcoming. We did the tour and archery-we didn't eat in restaurant. Gift shop was great. It is a two hour event-don't plan to be there all day-
