Old city tour
Our family (kids ages 14, 12 and 10) enjoyed a private tour of the old city with Louise Labelle. She was entertaining, humorous and informative. She kept the whole family engaged. Highly recommend!

Hello Miriam P, Super glad to know that we had made your Quebec City vacation memorable.. for the WHOLE FAMILY. As a mother myself, I know how hard it is to keep teens entertained ( especially in person now days...) Come back again to try our Quebec City Gourmet Food Tour and come hungry!

Beware: Company lies. Hire a private guide on your own.
Feb 2020
Unfortunately, my family was not able to go on the private tour we booked. Our flights were cancelled due to a major winter storm in Quebec. 12 - 16 inches of snow with winds that reduced visibility to 0 at times. When we called to cancel all other activities that we had scheduled in Quebec, we were able to with refund, even if they had a 24 hour cancellation policy because of the severity of the storm. Our dog sledding place even lost electricity due to the storm! When I spoke with HQ Services Touristiques, they stated that they were not able to offer a refund because we booked through Viator and Viator would have to refund. When I called Viator, they said they would refund but would have to get the okay from HQ Services Touristiques.
The Viator representative called HQ Services and was told that there would be no refund from them. I called HQ Services back and asked why they would not refund as Viator was willing, then she gave me a new story saying that they book a private guide and he had a cancellation policy. So a new story in order not to refund? I thought I was dealing with a tour company that had their own guides, but now it appears that they are just a middle man. An unusual, severe winter storm and no compassion from HQ Services. Many more tour places that will care about people and will not lie and change their stories to take your money. Will not ever book with HQ Services Touristiques again!

Bonjour Stacy, I am sorry that your weekend getaway was canceled due to bad weather, and you had to live through hours of waiting and negotiating in the airport. I have been there and totally understand your disappointment, frustration and tiredness. We are a company that accommodate our guests by bending lots of "rules". We have changed tour dates for guests due to weather, we have changed/cancelled tour for guest that pass the 24 hour period. Unfortunately, when it is severe weather within the 24 hour cancellation period, we believe this is really a travel insurance issue, where damage should not be done to neither travelers nor to tour operators. On the phone with you, my original phrase was: we have booked one of our guides for your private tour. We can not just cancel a private guide last min without cost incurred.  😏 1: You booked via Viator with a "Free Cancellation up to 24 hours in advance policy. " 2: On our company website, we have the same policy "Cancellations will be accepted up to 24 hours prior to the tour departure." 3: Your departure time was on Feb 28th 2020 9AM EST. 4: You called us on Feb 27th 2020 3:13 PM EST and Feb 27th 2020 3:27 PM EST to inform us the situation. Fact: 1. You have missed your cancellation window from both companies. 2. We have conducted multiple pre-tour communications with you to insure the best service. 3. We have booked one of our guides for your private guided tour. 🤔 Should our company get punished for an problem --"refund" that can be solve by your credit card's "Travel Interruption/Cancellation Insurance" ? 💔 🙂 Nevertheless, sincerely, we are sorry about what you had gone through in the airport. Come back to Quebec City next time and come see us, your guide Dominique would be glad to show you what we have to offer. Hongying Tang, owner of HQ Services Touristiques Inc. hongying.tang@hqst.ca

It was fun, interesting, exciting, and full of hidden gems. Lynn explained the history, its quirks, and we gained a real appreciation why Quebec is Quebec.

Excellent Tour Experience with Lynn
Dec 2019
Our group of 6 (3 in their 20's and 3 in their 50's) did a two-hour walking tour of Old Quebec City with Lynn as our tour guide in late December, 2019. If you are considering a tour of the old city, then I don't need to remark on what a wonderful place it is. We are definitely going back. It is completely deserving of its UNESCO status in our humble opinion (something the UN will relieved to hear, I am sure). As for our tour guide, Lynn, we can only say that she was excellent. We recommend you ask for her, if you can. She was extremely knowledgable, pleasant and candid. Everyone on our tour commented on what a great job she did for us. She even managed to get us into a restaurant that evening that was otherwise full up, which ended up being the best meal of our trip. We all agreed that our tour was the highlight of our 3 days in Quebec City. We came away from the tour with a very much improved understanding of the history of the city and of early Canada. Our family has hired guides for private tours in Rome, Venice, Florence, Barcelona, Paris, Munich, Vienna, Prague, New York City, Montreal and Bali. Many were more expensive ...but none better than Lynn. We highly recommend her.

Fell in Love with Quebec City
Sep 2019
Our guide, Denis Laberge, met us at our hotel which was near the Parliament Building. We strolled along at a comforable pace for two 75+ year olds, taking in the beautiful sights and hearing history at each stop. The flowers along our route were blooming, adding to our impression that this is one beautiful city. Denis gave in depth history, and there was never a time that he couldn't fully answer our questions. We spent a wonderful afternoon and recommend him to all visitors.

Personable and informed
Jul 2019 • Family
My family had a 3 hour walking tour with Francois. He was well prepared and responsive. We had been particularly interested in the history and architecture of the Old City and he was able to tailor the tour to our curiosity. We planned to be in the old city for several days and the tour materially added to our appreciation of the rest of our vacation. I would use this company again.

Bonjour Darlene N, Francois is one of our superstars, a living history book, a walking architecture guru, and a laughing+jiggling gentlemen. Thank you for giving us the positive recognition.
