Your Itinerary at a Glance

Day One

Welcome to Quebec City! Your Tour Leader will greet you and get the show underway with a walk through the Upper Town, where you'll see the St-Louis Gate, the Château Frontenac, the Dufferin Terrasse, the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity and more.

Next, you'll experience the daily military life of a British soldier in Quebec City as you become a soldat de la tour at the Martello Tower.

It's time to head off to the Village Huron in Wendake! Located in the heart of Wendake just north of Quebec City, Village Huron is a portrait of First Nations life past, present and future. You'll explore the site with a guide, tuck into an amazing authentic meal, and partake in traditional dances and legends. Onhoúa Chetek8e!

Day Two

Bon matin! Take in the view of the mighty Fleuve St-Laurent and the famous Pont de Québec, the longest cantilever bridge span in the world, on your way to a healthy breakfast of croissants, scrambled egg, fruit salad and a bowl of chocolat chaud at le Cochon Dingue, a quaint café in the historic Quartier Petit Champlain.

Time for an epic sightseeing tour with a local guide, featuring all of Quebec's greatest hits, including the Plains of Abraham, Parliament, Grande Allée, Quartier Petit Champlain, Place Royale and Château Frontenac, a.k.a. the most photographed hotel in the world!

Now that you're familiar with Old Quebec, let's enjoy some free time! Here's your chance to explore with your friends, grab lunch (at individual expense), and practice your conversational French.

The Côte-de-Beaupré, aka Québec's breadbasket, has deep agricultural roots running back to both the First Nations and New France's earliest settlers. We're spending the afternoon there.

First stop: beautiful mosaics and a replica of Michelangelo's Pieta during your self-guided visit of the Ste-Anne de Beaupré shrine.

Quebec has a rich tradition of oral history, and you'll be treated to this with iconic legends and stories during your visit of l'Atelier Paré, wood sculpture studio that includes a musical spoons workshop!

The Montmorency Falls are a true Quebec icon. They're the tallest waterfalls in the Province, the site of historic battles and legends, and John Keats even references them in his poetry. Plus, there's a sweet suspended bridge spanning the top, and you're about to walk across it. Acrophobics: prepare to conquer your fear!

Next stop: the SUGAR SHACK! On your journey, your Tour Leader will teach you how the people of Quebec managed to brave the difficult winters through the tradition of maple syrup production.

We're here! Let's party like it's 1699. At Érablière du Cap, an authentic French Canadian cabane à sucre, you're going to feast on a 17th Century meal and get down to traditional songs and dances. You'll even break a sweat attempting to make your own maple butter. Don't forget to add some syrup to your pea soup (we're not kidding).

Day Three

After breakfast and check-out from your hotel, we're taking you to a Grocery Scavenger Hunt at Le Marché du Vieux Port, Quebec City's favorite farmers' market! You'll rely on French signs and local merchants to fill in the blanks we've left in our favorite food-themed French Canadian expressions. Prizes for the winners! Stay sharp, otherwise les carottes sont cuites.

You might also want to grab a couple of fresh snacks along the way (at individual expense).

Next up: the Musée de la Civilisation, the perfect place to explore Quebec from many angles - pop culture, politics, science and more. There's something for everyone!

Time for lunch and to explore in Old Quebec! Grab some food (at individual expense), do some shopping and practice your conversational French.

Strike a pose! Let's get a photo of the whole squad in front of the Château Frontenac before bidding à la prochaine to la belle province.
