Day 1

We'll begin our getaway with an early morning pick up in Belleville at 7:00am. From there, we'll continue along picking up other passengers in Kingston, Gananoque, and Brockville.

Once everyone is on board, we will make our way to Sucrerie de la Montagne in Quebec. We will enjoy our included all you can eat buffet and personalized visit of their maple syrup production facility around 11:00am. Located in a forest of century-old maple trees, this sugar shack offers its customers a real experience into the past of Canadian history. After experiencing an authentic Quebecois celebration, we will continue our journey to Quebec City.

We will check into The Hotel Clarendon around 5:15pm; built in 1870, it is the oldest operating hotel in the city.

Dinner will be on your own tonight. There are plenty restaurants right outside of your hotel but if you feel like staying close to your room, check out the Brasserie Les Mordus. Located in your hotel, this friendly restaurant specializes in seafood. With a relaxed atmosphere, it could be just what the doctor ordered after a day of travelling! The rest of the evening is yours to enjoy at your leisure.

Day 2

Our day will begin with a delicious included buffet breakfast at our hotel. Next, our motorcoach will meet us and we will disembark on a fun and educational tour of Quebec City hosted by a local guide. On our tour we will see several historic sites including the Parliament Building, the Plains of Abraham, the Chateau Frontenac and Place Royale. There will be 30 minutes of walking on this tour; make sure to wear some comfy shoes!

At 12:00pm our group will arrive at the Petit Champlain District for lunch on our own. Along with amazing restaurants, this area offers one of the prettiest streets in Canada and is also one of the oldest shopping districts in North America. Adorable shops line Rue du Petit-Champlain selling countless items - leave room in your suitcase for some treats to take home with you.

At 1:15pm, our motorcoach will pick us up and take us on a tour up the St. Lawrence River to the stunning Montmorency Falls. The large waterfall on the Montmorency River in Quebec serves as the perfect photo-op!

Next, we will visit the Albert Gilles Copper Art & Museum and discover how a passionate craftsman and now 5 women in his family continue the tradition of embossed copper. Their workshop has decorated more than 35 churches across North America, including the doors of the Basilica of Ste-Anne-de-Beaupre, our next stop!

For over 350 years, people of all ages have been gathering at the Basilica dedicated to Sainte Anne, the grandmother of Jesus. Our tour will educate us on the history of this beautiful religious site.

After our full day of touring, we will make our way back to our hotel for 5:00pm and the rest of the night is yours to relax and have dinner on your own.

Day 3

This morning our buffet breakfast is included at the Hotel Clarendon. We will have a relaxing morning before joining our group to enjoy our afternoon in Quebec City.

We will make our way to Chateau Frontenac for our guided tour at 10:00am. Experience the Castle Life during a guided tour of this iconic hotel located on one of the most beautiful sites in Quebec City. You will discover the famous people and historical events that have shaped the identity of the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac over the years, as well as its architectural development and facelift undergone in recent years.

Once our tour is over, our motorcoach will pick us up at Chateau Frontenac and take us to The Grand Market to pick up some locally sourced and handmade treats to take home with us. The Christmas Market brings together more than 200 food companies, artisans and artists. This market offers 100% locally made gifts for your friends and family - and maybe you will even find something for yourself!

We will then head back to Old Quebec where we will spend the afternoon enjoying the German Christmas Market. It is a magical place that comes to life in the heart of Old Quebec a few weeks before Christmas. As you enter this European inspired market, you will find a warm atmosphere with beautiful decorations, a great selection of delicious German treats and gifts for all of your loved ones. This is a unique and unforgettable experience that you will never forget!

Lunch and dinner will be on your own today.

Day 4

This morning, we will enjoy our included breakfast buffet before checking out of our hotel at 9:30am. Our adventures in Quebec are not over yet!

We will board our motorcoach and make our way to CF Promenades St-Bruno (same owners as the Toronto Eaton Centre). We will have some time for some holiday shopping and lunch on our own. Afterwards, we will make our way down the street to satisfy our sweet tooth at Chocolat Belge Heyez Pere et Fils. This chocolatier has been making people of all ages smile for 75 years.
After 40 years of calling Belgium home, the founders Janine, Charles and Hubert Heyez, relocated Chocolaterie Heyez to St-Bruno in October 1986. You will never get tired of tasting their Belgian chocolate!

Now that we are all set for the holidays, we will enjoy our last meal together and relax at the McIntosh Inn. Located in the picturesque St. Lawrence Valley in the Eastern Ontario town of Morrisburg, the Inn was established over 30 years ago as "Paddy's Inn" and was the gathering spot for locals and travellers to the community. Today, the Inn continues to be a destination offering delicious food in a unique setting.

After our included dinner this evening, we will board our motorcoach and make our way home.

We can't wait to get away with you again soon!
