Since we live on the east coast of the US, it is hard to learn and experience the life of the native americans/first nations of the continent. So while vacationing in Quebec City, it was a great chance to learn about these cultures. We took the extended discovery tour. Well worth the time. At first we viewed the museum, small... More

The Huron village is crammed onto a very small site. A small long house and other structures like a sweat lodge are included, as are non-Huron structures like a tipi. What made the site worthwhile was an incredible, very informative tour by a native guide, who explained everything from politics to history to religion in great detail - staying interesting... More

Very informative and people were welcoming. We did the tour and archery-we didn't eat in restaurant. Gift shop was great. It is a two hour event-don't plan to be there all day-

From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed. Our tour guide, Pierre, was outstanding! Very informative and respectful. The food, the atmosphere and the people were amazing. We learned a lot, that day, about a culture that is most important to this country. I thought the dance show was excellent as well. It was great to see the young people... More

This was a very nice visit, you automatically get a guided tour when you pay your entrance fee, and you can also get some activities/food for a little more. Our guide was the real deal: a pow wow traditional Wendat dancer who knew his history and from whom we could learn loads even though I know my history pretty well.... More

As a person of Aboriginal descent I was intrigued to visit this site and see the recreation of the traditional village. To start was highly disappointed to see poor recreations of the outfits worn by traditional Huron-Wendake. We observed the welcome dance as part of our tour/package and a peace pipe sharing at the end; as I watched each selected... More

We were looking forward to experiencing and learning more about native Canadian culture and history. The guided tour didn't disappoint as we learned lots of interesting information. We would happily have listened to more. Thank you to our guide Kim. Our children really enjoyed trying out archery too. However we were extremely disappointed with the traditional dance show (which we... More

Leaving Quebec City, we took a short drive to visit the Wendake First Nation Reservation. There is so much that we don’t know and/or contest about our aboriginal people. A traditional welcome dance invited us to experience a glimpse of First Nation history and culture. Our tour included traditional long house dwellings, weapons and hunting methods, the curing and smoking... More

As some other travellers have noted, there is very little told about the native tribes of Canada, which I found quite frustrating while travelling the country. I was really looking forward to that visit. The guide was awesome, and explained a lot of elements of the Wendat lives and culture. The shop definitely had a lot to offer. I just... More
