We rescheduled with Ma. Over the phone because we had a conflict. We are scheduled for 10 am on Tuesday. Please check your records and confirm he made this change. I got no confirmation from you at all, so I am nervous the change was not made. This conversation was on Sunday morning around 9:30 am. Thank you. My phone is 630-865-2454. Thank you.

Grand Scale, Inside as Well as Outside

How can you go to Quebec City and NOT explore the “elephant” in the skyline? The Hotel was built well over 100 years ago, and on an incredibly grand scale. I wanted to see if the inside was as grand as the outside- and it is!

Short and to the point tour that covers the amazing history of the hotel. Highlight of tour was visiting the room the FDR and Churchill used to discuss Operation Overlord....blow away by being able to stand in the same room as some of the greatest leaders the world has ever known.

I took this tour with my 12 year old grandson. It turned out to be one of his favourite activities in Quebec City. Because we stayed at the Chateau Frontenac this tour made our stay there so much more meaningful. A lot of information was packed into an hour, perfect amount of time.
