The guided tour was very informative and interesting. The guide was in period dress which added to the historical feeling of the Chateau. Would definitely recommend this tour if you are interested in the history and architecture of the Frontenac Hotel.

Our tour guide was so informative, funny and knowledgeable. This tour is well worth the time and money to discover the history of this beautiful building and see areas not open to the general public.

We really enjoyed our tour of the Chateau Frontenac. Our guide was awesome.... She knew her history of not only the hotel but if the whole area. She was very easy to understand and hear. We certainly wouldn't have learned as much as we did without taking the tour

A great tour but there are a lot of stairs which was difficult for me while wearing a mask as I have asthma. Nonethless, a beautiful place to see.

Didn't live up to expectations

The guide was a colourful narrator and played the part well. Unfortunately, we didn't see too much of the Frontenac. We expected to hear more historical stories and see more of the back areas and hidden gems of this amazing place.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2021
Bonjour, Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions with us. We are happy that our guide was able to meet up your expectations but sorry that you felt like not enough back areas were included in the tour. Considering that the Château Frontenac is a very popular hotel with a high occupancy rate and hosting quite a few business events, we must admit we sometimes face a few challenges in terms of room/area availability. Unfortunately, this is out of our control as an external tour company, despite the excellent collaboration with the Château Frontenac team. But all of our guides are definitely trained to deal with such situation and will do everything possible to compensate the unavailability of certain rooms in order to minimize the impact on the guest experience.
