I first discovered Canada's most intriguing province as a student and continue to enjoy Quebec's great food, all-season, unique outdoor activities and genuine good value and hospitality in accommodations for all budgets. Both Montreal and Quebec City have much to offer visitors seeking a true French experience in North America. I invite you to share the vibrancy of French Canada as I am sure you will love Quebec as much as I do. Bon Voyage!
