I just returned from Signature City Quebec and recommend it to everyone. The city is beautiful, historic, navigable. The guides/lecturers are well-informed and friendly. As a single woman, I always felt welcomed and safe. I keep thinking I would love to see it in each season.

I couldn't have asked for a better trip. I'm glad I chose the Signature City Quebec trip. The guide was terrific and the lectures and tours were interesting and informative. The location of the accomodation was conveniant and the breakfast was perfect. You will definiately enjoy the selection of restaurants during your stay.

Do not hesitate to visit Quebec City with Road Scholar. It's a fascinating place considering its place in the history of the French colonization of America. Also, be sure to check out some of the books on the reading list!

Website ok. Program great. Travel side of program was not good. I was able to negotiate in Quebec to change flight for connection free but your travel People wanted to charge me $400.

Chantal Bellon! Chantal Bellon! Chantal Bellon! She was ALWAYS near when needed and if she didn’t have an answer for you immediately she got back to you with one in a timely manner. Her coordination and encouragement of the other guides was excellently done. She kept the trip moving at a Goldilocks pace, not to fast and not to slow. She made sure that all of the participants were consistently accounted for and cared for. In summary, she REALLY cared about ensuring we all had a VERY positive experience and went home with more appropriate knowledge and experiences of Quebec City than we could ever have hoped for.

Do not go on this trip unless you can walk up steep inclines easily. There are many in old Quebec City.

This reviewer did not give a star rating.

Guess I lost the email on rating aspects of this trip . First, I had problems with air travel due to a storm in Chicago and was rerouted way out of my way and didn’t get to Quebec City until after 11 pm! Thus missing the first evening dinner and meeting . I had called the special number on my information and told a young man what was happening. He did not contact Chantel the guide so she had no idea what happened to me . I was exhausted and NOT Ready for breakfast at 7 30 Missed the first lecture. Then Chantel in her enthusiasm to keep us all together called me to hurry for beginning of the “keep the pace” marathon. It definitely was a pace setting event And the little headphones we wore were problematic . I think I needed more information on how it all worked and that it was a military history trip mostly . I loved Chantel and the others and it was fantastic to see Quebec City . On a scale of 1-5 , I’d give the whole trip a 3.5. It was a nightmare coming back through Chicago and customs!! At least a thousand people snaking their way to the computers many of us didn’t know how to use. Then having to get on a ground bus with standing room only to get to my gate where I barely made it in time I will say NEVER AGAIN on Chicago . I’ll do my own flights in the future if there is a future . All the people were nice, mostly couples that like to be with other couples, but I was always in the front of the group walking! I’m still getting over my tiredness two weeks later . Mary Helen Roper

The programs that Road Scholar offers are wonderful. I have done four and plan to do more. Be sure to check out the grandparent trips with your grandchild.

The Road Scholar tour of Old Quebec City was excellent - good communication helping to prepare for the trip, excellent accommodations, and excellent program leaders.

John

Generally good, except that the requirement for extra use if user names and passwords increases complications. The steps to be used for getting to and entering information for additional members of my group could be better explained.

Quebec City is a beautiful and interesting city and the tour guides are very knowledgeable. The accommodations and food were wonderful. There is a lot of walking but be prepared because the walking is up and down the hilly city streets. However, I am so glad I made the trip. The group was only 24 people and we were divided into groups of 12 for the walking tours. Everyone was very friendly and made my first Road Scolar trip very enjoyable.

Mark

This trip is a good model for diving deep into a city and its history. I will look for similar tours in other cities as a result.

Judy

We just completed a wonderful, interesting, well planned and carried out Roads Scholar adventure in Quebec City! Very enjoyable! Highly recommend!

This is an active program that provides an overview of Quebec City history, culture, and social events. It allows for free time to pursue activities on your own or after hours with the Group Leader who led walks throughout the City we might not have otherwise experienced. Chantal, our group leader, was well informed, great at problem solving, and welcoming to all participants.

John

This is an excellent introduction to one of my favorite cities in the world.

The “Road Scholar” tour of Quebec did not disappoint. I especially appreciated our group leader, Chantal, who was easily approachable, compassionate, and attentive to details. She made our tour even more enjoyable than we could ever have imagined.

Quebec city is very charming beautiful city with lots of history and culture. Walking around upper and lower town was manageable to me,nobody got hurt. Food were delicious with good service, good walking distance most of time. Our group leader Chantal was very attentive,funny and she made sure everyone had fantastic time. We had good local expert, Harry ,Francois and Marie had great knowledge and good sense of humor. I enjoyed walk while listening music everywhere. I learned that Canadians are happy people and get along well. No murder for last 5 years are very impressive to me since I am from Top Ten high crime city. I am hooked to Road Scholar and look forward another trip soon.

For those of us of a certain vintage, Road Scholar offers a unique opportunity to study in-depth interests that we may have postponed early in our lives. We have the chance to mingle with our contemporaries, explore cities, start new hobbies, or enjoy the arts, all at an activity level that meets our individual needs. As an experienced traveler, I have found no better value and no more enjoyable way to spend my vacation time.

Donna

Wonderful trip! the trip was very well organized and the history of Quebec was led by informative instructors. Accommodations were great and all food and hospitality were great. The field trips were led by knowledgeable instructors. Wonderful city to explore!! I'm looking forward to many more Road Scholar programs.

You could have no better guide to Quebec City than our leader, Chantal Bellon. She provided the zest to a most important city in both Canada's and the US's history. Staying in the city allowed us time to explore the broad spectrum of its history with Europe and First Nation People. Simply beyond all my expectations.

Linda
(5)

Road Scholar exceeded our expectation. Our tour director and guides were interesting,informative and added wonderful anecdotes along the way. Quebec City was on my list of places to visit, and I cannot imagine having done it any other way. My husband and I definitely look forward to traveling with Road Scholar again.

Karen
(5)

This program was excellent! We saw Quebec City by walking its streets and enjoying the local restaurants. And yes, it is almost like Europe. Our group was smaller, so we were able to interact with all the participants. The hotel was comfortable and centrally located. Our leader, Chantal, was excellent, always able to answer questions, give advice, and share a smile. Her evening walks were a highlight for me.

Martha

If you read Louise Penny or want to learn about Quebec City, this is the perfect program.

Curtis

An outstanding program if you want to learn about Quebec and the early history of how French has remained the dominant language and culture in this province of Canada.

Tim

This is a "Must do" program. One of the best I have participated in.

William

This trip filled a longtime desire. It packed a lot into four days and was both fun and enlightening. Chantal was a fantastic group leader ever ready to be helpful and has a great sense of humor. All resource people were top notch. I even got the chance to dredge up my high school/college French. This was a memorable trip!

We had the most phenomenal group leader and the friendliest group. Very educational and fun. Slightly more active than we expected but not too much of a stretch. An excellent introduction to Quebec and to Canada.
