  2. Wow!

    Second time for me and have already started booking next summer's Bonjour Québec! Great itinerary, well-planned but with wiggle room for spontaneity. Wonderful tour guide and bus driver. Felt safe and well taken care of while out and about and in the hotels. Nice mix of educational activities and just for fun.

  3. Beyond expectations

    I throughly enjoyed the Canada experience. As a coordinator for IB, this was the perfect way for my students to use their language acquisition in French. The experience with shopping to understanding the old Quebec history was well worth it.

  4. Amazing trip

    It was the the first time my child was flying without me. But the chaperones and the organization made it so easy for me as a parent. I wasn’t worried at all. He loved it and I probably next year will take part of this amazing experience again. They even created a chat group to allow every parent and children to share all these precious moments. That’s something he will never forget. Thanks to my son’s two teachers to give him such opportunity to discover a part of this world. See you next year. Thanks to the EF team as well. You rock.

  5. Extraordinary Trip

    I took my group of French students to Quebec with EF and since returning it is clear that for many students it was a life changing event. The visit to the sugar shack in Quebec City provided so many of my students with a time to unwind and let loose. I witnessed my shy students come out of their shells. It has also boosted interest in the French program at my school. I have had students asking when the next trip will be and are excited to make their own memories. The EF tour directors and consultants were amazing and really made the trip memorable. I would recommend this trip for anyone who would like to gain a better understanding of a francophone culture.

  6. C'est Incroyable!

    My trip with EF Explore America tour to Montreal and Quebec was, in a word, incredible. From the well-planned excursions such as the walking tours and the Sugar Shack (hands down the best part of the trip!) to the simply playing in the snow at Montmorency Falls with the students, there was never a moment I didn't want to be there. The scenery was incredible, the restaurants that EF Tours picked were fabulous, and I felt like we used our time so well in exploring Canada. My only regret is that our trip wasn't longer! I absolutely loved our tour director who ensured that we had everything we needed and wanted and who went above and beyond in forming personal relationships with the students and chaperones. I am beyond thankful for such an incredible trip and miss it more than I can say.

  7. Super expérience!

    We were kept busy and entertained with various activities that helped us better understand historical & cultural facts in the most interactive of way - always having students engaged & interested. The schedule had enough built-in flexibility to include last minute Fat Bike Riding or to be able to participate in Saint Friday ceremony at a nearby cathedral for students who wanted to, for instance. As well as, a bountiful schedule that never exhausted, neither bored. Absolutely marvelous time & wonderful memories! Merci EF :-)

  8. Awesome experience

    Our trip to Quebec was amazing. The kids had a lot of fun and learnt a lot about the history of Quebec. The several workshops were not only entertaining but educational. Our tour guide Isabelle was fantastic, very helpful and really connected with all of us. My students claimed that it was the perfect trip for them as first time international travelers for they felt comfortable enough to try to speak French knowing that they could always communicate in English as most people we conversed with, were bilingual. Not once did we feel unsafe. it was really wonderful. Exploring the different churches/basilicas was inspiring. The kids loved the spectacular Montmorency falls.

  9. Superb and Culturally Sound

    Our tour guide was second to none. Our step-on guide in Montréal as well as our walking guide in Québec City were phenomenal with cultural information and their historical accounts of each city. We can't recommend the sugar shack experience highly was incredibly memorable.

  10. Even better the second time

    This was my second year in a row taking students on the "Bonjour, Québec" trip and we had even more fun than the first time. Every day was packed with fun activities at just the right pace. We ended our trip with a great evening watching an outdoor concert which our tour guide went out of her way to add to the itinerary.
