Itinerary

This itinerary is the starting point for your tour, but it’s not set in stone. If there are days you would like to change, or specific places you’d like to go, we can work with you to create a personalized program that fits the needs of you and your students.

Day 1: Montreal

Depart the USA and get ready to say bonjour to Montréal, the second-largest French-speaking city in the world. Meet your ACIS Tour Manager and explore some of the city on a walking tour through to Place Jacques-Cartier, ending at dinner. Afterwards, walk to Place d’Armes where you will begin an animated ghost walk through the cobblestoned streets of Vieux Montréal. Other options this evening could include a visit to the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium or ice skating at L’Amphithéâtre de Glace.

Day 2: Montreal

Begin your day with a visit to Notre Dame Basilica, fondly called “the Jewel of Montréal”, and one of the most beautiful churches in all the Americas. Then, walk to an accredited French language school for a comparative class taught by local language teachers focused on either French cultures or survival Quebecois skills. (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). Head over to Centre Eaton, Montréal's Underground City for lunch on your own and some time to practice your French while souvenir-shopping in “la ville souterraine”. This afternoon explore more of Montréal with a sightseeing which includes the Chalet de la Montagne at the top of Mount Royale, and a visit to the Oratoire St-Joseph. Your day will end out in the countryside with an all-you-can eat traditional dinner and an evening of French-Canadian music and folklore at an authentic French-Canadian cabane à sucre.

Day 3: Departure

In 1976, Montréal hosted the Summer Olympic Games and this morning, after your group photo, you’ll get to see this beautiful venue with a private tour of the Olympic Stadium and Pools. Next, you will ascend 556 feet on the Funiculaire to the top of the world’s tallest inclined tower for a panoramic, 50-mile view of Montréal, the St. Lawrence Seaway and the surrounding countryside. On a clear day you can see all the way to the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains of New York. Have lunch on your own here or back at Place Jacques Cartier before heading home.
