More a talking tour than a walking tour.

When you book a "walking tour", you expect to cover a bit of territory, but our guide simply took us around a very tight local area, and we were stopping for 15 minutes every 10 minutes. OK, we learned a bit, but it wasn't what...More

All the tours leave from the city centre in front of Hotel Frontenac. I would just walk there, there was public parking at the Hilton - about a 10-15 minute walk for me.
