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.

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.

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.

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.

Quebec City was my first adventure with Road Scholar and I will definitely be returning to this organization for travel. The tours and lectures give a great description of the key areas of the city, the planned meals are offered at superb restaurants with generous choices, the personnel involved were terrific, knowledgeable and very approachable, and oh! The hotel on this trip...gorgeous, historic, a 10+ on service. Make your reservation today!

Quebec is a beautiful city with a rich history and cultural heritage. Our tour guide, besides being highly organized and fun to be with, was extremely knowledgeable, as were the additional guides for specific outings and educational sessions. The Chateau Frontenac was lovely and the meals there and elsewhere were done well. A well-planned and interesting time made even more enjoyable by the interesting people we met on the tour and around the city.

Quebec City is a fascinating city with a unique history described in detail through both educational lectures and visits to key city landmarks. Accommodations are excellent and the tour itself is well organized and run smoothly. A lovely 5 days for both fun and education.

It was obvious that during our visit the people of Quebec were intent on showing us why Quebec is so great to visit and live in. So much history, many sights and activities in proximity. I could not have had as great a Quebec experience on my own. Well done, Sally, Stephen, Harry and Road Scholar!

Great Trip! Our leader, Sally Kelner, was very organized. She was able to keep everyone on track and moving in a very friendly and personable way. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with information about places to see on one's own during the free time. Harry Hunkin provided excellent presentations on Quebec history. Daily schedule was well thought out and allowed us to see the maximum amount in 5 days. Dividing group of 24 into two groups of 12 was very helpful. Manoir Victoria Hotel was perfect location for both starting tour days as well as exploring on one's own. All the meals were delicious. One suggestion: ask the restaurants to provide one lighter alternative at lunch. I would highly recommend this trip!!

I had a wonderful time. The participants were welcoming to me, a solo traveler. The location, Quebec City, was one I had wanted to see for years and to learn more about its history.

Signature City--Quebec City was a wonderful program. We learned a lot of the history of Canada and Quebec, as well as learning about the current situations and culture. The city is hilly but appropriate for active participants. We visited many interesting sites.

This was my first Road Scholar program and I loved it. I had a depth of experience that exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed the coordination of a well thought out and well planned trip that I didn't have to plan myself.

Signature Quebec was a delightful experience in a city unique in North America. We had long wnted to see Quebec City and this program satisfied each and every item on our wish list. Well worth the time.

So worth every plane delay and Customs hassle! The hotel is in a perfect spot for easy walking everywhere. The food was incredibly delicious, with just the right combination of buffet and plated dishes. Great idea to have a full afternoon on Thursday, once we had a good sense of where and what we wanted to do on our own. Tour guides were all very interesting, especially Harry and Simon. Sally did a great job making everyone feel at home in her hometown, adding her special knowledge of the area, and making sure we were all comfortable and enjoying ourselves. Beautiful city and very friendly people. I would go again!

Dear Road Scholar readers. My experience of the 5 day Quebec City tour was absolutely WONDERFUL! As I had dreamed of seeing the Frontenac (LIVE) since I was about 9 years old (when my parents visited and took and brought home photos in the early 1950's), I have yearned to visit there myself. This trip gave me the history and current updates that made the visit even more meaningful than I could have imagined. Especially Excellent Guides. Thank YOU!

Certainly one of the best R.S. trips that I've been on. The quality and location of the accommodations could not have been better. The local tour guides were all very good, and everyone in Quebec made us feel welcome to be there. And I can't really say enough about how good the food was, from the breakfast buffet at the hotel to the set meals at local restaurants. The only caveat that I have is that the entire town consists of a lot of ups and downs, with some steep streets and stairs. The routes taken as part of the itinerary were not too stressful, but if you want to do a lot of walking on your own -- as we did -- your legs will definitely feel it!
