The Real Québéçois

Tour the charm and culture of the first French settlement in North America from its time mellowed cobblestone streets and ornate Baroque architecture to the stately Chateau Frontenac and the magnificent Palace Royal.  Go on an exhilarating whale watch, get lucky at the casino and take a sunset dinner cruise on Lake Champlain…the fun is non-stop on this guided tour.
