A history of Château Frontenac in great fun. Told in an animated way that was so captivating. How Frontenac outwited the British. How and why it became into a hotel. Fires, reconstructions and additions. The place where D-Day was planned and other august guests that stayed plus intriguing trivia re the wife, the mistress, guest wishes and lost letters.

I liked seeing parts of the interior of the hotel and knowing about their history. I was hoping to see at least one of the guest rooms to have a more complete picture of the interior of the building. The tour didn't include that so I really missed that part.

Our group of 4 people did five different tours/bookings while in Quebec City, and this was the highlight/favourite for three of us! The tour group had around 12 attendees. The guide was excellent! He stayed in character and shared the history of Chateau Frontenac in a creative and intriguing manner. The first part of the tour is outside and then you have the opportunity to visit a handful of rooms inside, a number of which are closed to the general public. The Chateau is truly gorgeous and has so much history. We would absolutely recommend this tour to others!
