At a Glance

Does music sound grander when played on a gigantic organ? Is a greeting friendlier when it’s spoken in French? Do waterfalls look more beautiful up close? Find your own answers to these questions as you and your grandchild explore the French heritage, language and food of Québec City and Montréal. Travel by train from one fascinating city to the next through the beautiful Québec countryside, and ride a cable car to see the rushing waters of Montmorency Falls. Learn a little French and try using it with Québecois at a local market, and hear a musical performance at Montréal's famous Notre Dame Basilica.
