Unique cultural interest and visit format. Very personalized. Select activities and depth of visit from their menu of choices. This one flies below the radar and is not for everyone, but if it seems like it might be of interest it will probably be very interesting.

The presentation and information about the Huron tribe was excellent and gave a seemingly realistic glimpse into the past hardships of the native community. The guides are from the Huron reserve and answer questions about their heritage.

Small theme park with very nice gift shop. During the guided visit we obtained very good information on the history of the Huron indians. The other indian tribes were also explaned as well as the Canadian history. Our guide Dominique was perfect!

We visited Huron Village quickly from Quebec City before heading back to Ontario. It only took about 30 minutes by car from our hotel to get there. It appears misleading at first. The Huron Village is located in what appears to be an very urban town. It is surrounded by parking lots and a factory or two. The only hint... More

Located approximately 30 minutes by car from Quebec City. Or, two buses are necessary to reach Wendake from Quebec City, then either a 40 minute walk or a taxi trip to the site. Informative & interesting reconstruction of a traditional Huron Indian village. A must-see to appreciate the original custodians of this part of the world. Reasonable entry price of... More

Want to see a well run native reserve - then visit Wendake ( Loretteville) just a 20 min. Ride outside Quebec City. They have a shuttle bus starting June 27 from the tourist information centre near Chateau Frontenac. Make sure to experience the museum at the hotel Premier First Nations and Site Traditionelle, an open air museum of the Huron... More

Our guide was wonderful! We saw the traditional long house, played traditional games, and learned about Wendat culture. This was a real native American sharing his background. We started off with lunch in the restaurant which was basic but good (bison burgers and soup with bread). This was my favorite part of our trip.

Well maintained and well presented view of Huron Indian life. Guided tour was informative and not glitzed over as a tourist trap. Restaurant offered authentic Indian food with a purposely limited menu. Gift shop was even authentic Indian crafts.

Interesting history but a very small site. After visiting Ste Marie in Midland Ontario this site fell short of expectations. Friendly staff, nice gift shop but after all the hyped up brochures it was underwhelming.
