Bienvenue à Montréal, the second largest French-speaking city in the world. Meet your ACIS Tour Manager and begin your visit with a walking orientation tour of Old Montréal. Your tour will end with dinner amidst the ancient stone walls and hand-hewn wooden beams in the heart of Old Montréal.
After breakfast, walk to Notre Dame Basilica, for a tour of “the Jewel of Montréal”, and one of the most beautiful churches in the Americas.

(If unavailable, the group can take part in a historic Chasse au Trésor that will test you on what you have learned thus far about the rich history of New France). This afternoon spend some time exploring and souvenir- and gift-shopping in Montréal's Underground City. After dinner, transfer for an evening of ice skating at a 10,000-square-foot, indoor ice-skating pavilion.
Breakfast at your hotel, then transfer to the Parc Olympique, the venue of the 1976 Summer Olympic Games for a private tour of the Olympic Stadium and pools.

Your visit will begin with a walking orientation tour that will introduce you to the historic Château Frontenac, the Terrasse Dufferin, and the beautiful Notre Dame de Québec Cathedral. After dinner, pause for a group photograph on the Promenade des Gouverneurs.
After breakfast, meet the bus in front of the hotel and transfer to a tour the Morrin Centre, Québec’s first public prison where you will be put in the shoes of a convict who was incarcerated there. After your history lesson, board the bus for a brief city sightseeing tour that will end back in the Quartier Petit Champlain where you can have lunch on your own. Next, we take to the ice for a lesson in curling – Canada’s favorite sport after hockey and an afternoon you won’t forget.

Tonight, enjoy an all-you-can-eat dinner at an authentic French-Canadian cabane à sucre, where you'll spend the evening learning traditional dances and folk songs. The evening will end with a parting taste of maple syrup served on snow.
