We begin the day with a sightseeing tour of Montreal’s highlights; Mount Royal, lively Saint-Catherine Street, Notre-Dame Cathedral and quaint old Montreal. In the afternoon, we will take a fascinating guided cruise on the St. Lawrence River. Sailing from the Old Port of Montreal to the Boucherville islands, you will be carried away by the maritime history of the Metropolis.
Our first stop today is Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. For generations the local artisans here have depicted French Canadian customs through sculptures displayed throughout the village. We will visit the Woodcarving Interpretation Centre and enjoy some time at leisure. Later we continued to Rivière-du-Loup on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River for a 1-night stay.
On our guided city tour we see Place Royal, little Champlain Quarter, the Plains of Abraham and more. In the afternoon we visit the iconic Château Frontenac for a guided tour and a special lunch overlooking the Saint Lawrence River. The rest of the day is free to explore Old Quebec’s enchanting streets, historic buildings and views of the majestic St. Lawrence River from the Governor’s Promenade.
