    The guide was in period costume and stayed in the character as one of the original architects which was fun. The tour started with just a few mins outside and the rest is inside. I found the hotel to be quite warm so dress in layers (no coat check available). The tour was informative and provided access to meeting rooms that are available for personal/business use. If you have several days in Quebec City, it’s worth it, if a short visit, I recommend a history or food walking tours instead.

    Our guide met us in the rain outside the designated coffee shop. We gathered and quickly moved inside, then a short walk to the hotel lobby. We were taken into the bar, a restaurant, an historical corridor, and the ballroom.

    Our tour guide was knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. The tour was informative and memorable. The size of the group was small enough that it was easy to hear. A good choice.

    I was going to rate the tour a 3 but have given the extra star for the guide. She was dressed as Emily Post - there is a connection I don’t want to spoil. She was an excellent guide and very engaging, she made the tour. The hotel was fully booked the day of the tour with two very large conference groups and perhaps this detracted from our experience. I wanted to see more of the hotel itself, perhaps one of the rooms and the “behind the scenes” as advertised, unfortunately this was not the case. With the exception of a private but very boring room downstairs we did not venture far from the lobby which I could have done myself.

    We enjoyed the tour very much. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining.
    We had no problem in finding our start point. All the extra information about the surroundings of the Chateau were very informative.

    Our guide was really friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was not as extensive as I would have thought, but well worth going in to see and hear the history of the Chateau

    We had a fantastic guide. She was informative and ready to answer all questions. However, I expected more of the Chateau property. I have seen other Fairmont properties, and I found this Chateau to be much less grand in comparison. The outside is impressive, but the inside was much less impressive.

    This tour was very interesting. Filled with lots of history and fun facts. Must be able to do stairs

    Our tour guide was very informative and knew the answer to any question asked of her. If you want to know the history of the hotel, this tour is the one to take.
