ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.

Really enjoyed the Artistic Journey Program in Montreal and Quebec City. The coordinator, Sylvie, is outstanding which makes the program even better!

I thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance when visiting Montreal and Quebec. Found the French Canadians very kind and welcoming. I learned a lot about our lovely northern neighbors and their great country. Accommodations, food, tours and entertainment were excellent. Andree Story, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Montreal and Quebec were not cities I had on my "bucket list"; however, I would recommend visiting them to anyone. They are interesting cities and the people are so very friendly!

This was a fantastic program. The food and accommodations were excellent and tour guides were very imformative as well as funny and personable. We even had a private jazz performace and a demonstration of the organ played in one of the basilicas. There is alot of walking and in Quebec there were a few places with many steps/hills but definitely do-able. I think the rating of "active" level was accurate. We had a great group and Sylvie and Andree were helpful, informative and FUN!

They trip was great! I met wonderful people. Its amazing how you really get to know about different cultures and how people relate to each other. Don't always judge a book by its cover, read its contents.

This is one of the best trips my wife and I have attended. Our group leader, Sylvie, was a joy to spend time with: she was knowledgeable, accommodating, humorous and also completely in control and able to handle unanticipated “glitches” quickly and efficiently. Perhaps the most unique and appreciated feature of Sylvie’s program was the use of taxis to shuttle the group to/from many of the attractions. This allowed participants to leave a site after spending enough time for themselves, thus eliminating the usual “dropping off” followed by a “pick up” at a specified time where you were forced to stay at a location perhaps well beyond your limits.

The program itself was an excellent balance of history, culture, art and entertainment. Both Montreal and Quebec were clean beautiful cities, and our hotels were perfectly located for both group and individual exploration and were both first rate. Our concern of a possible language barrier, since neither my wife or I spoke French, was totally unwarranted. We encountered nothing but friendly helpful natives who spoke excellent English as well as French. We highly recommend this trip.
