    • Royal Canadian Mounted Police

      Vancouver Jan 23, 2017 at 3:23 PM

      For many years I've wanted to see the Royal Canadian Mounted Police show and I note that they are preforming at the Rotary Club of Kamloops Aurora Centennial and at the Victoria Military Music Society in August. I've googled both of these organisations about the details with zero success. Does anyone please have any info about these events. Many thanks

    • Weather April/May

      Quebec Jan 6, 2017 at 12:21 PM

      To those of you who have helped and advised with the NZ trip I'm grateful but we simply can't afford it - so we're heading back to Canada

      Our rough proposed plan is to fly into Boston drive up through Lake Placid and on to Montreal/Ottawa/Quebec City -not sure if it's worth visiting Halifax so might well come back a more direct route. Thinking of visiting April/May but what about snowfall? All suggestions much appreciated - not into outdoor activities but very much folk music and historic sites - we've done Niagra

      Also on my want to do list is to see the Canadian Mounted Police show - I'm visiting their website daily but from past experience is there liable to be a show in Ottawa at this time of year

      Where to have Christmas Eve dinner?

      Quebec Nov 15, 2016 at 3:52 AM

      Hi. I will spend Christmas in Quebec this year (so excited!) I am just wondering where is a good restaurant to have Christmas Eve dinner? Most of the restaurants are closed and one of the nice restaurant I saw (Panache) only accept reservation from their hotel guests for Christmas Eve. Is there any other restaurants you can recommend? Also, if we don't make a reservation, can we likely find a restaurant that is open on Christmas Eve on that day? Thanks in advance!

    • 2 week itinerary for Gaspesie tour

      Gaspé Sep 27, 2016 at 8:30 AM


      We are planning a visit to the Gaspesie region next summer - end of Aug/beginning of Sept. If we go in the beginning of September, will everything still be open? We will have our 2 year old son with us so we want to break up the driving into smaller chunks. We would also prefer to spend a few days in one place in Gaspe instead of moving from motel to motel. Can you please comment on this itinerary? Thanks!

      Day 1: Leave from Quebec City. Visit Kamouraska. Stopover for the night in Matane.

      Day 2: Visit Sainte-Anne-de-Monts. Arrive in Gaspé.

      Day 3: Stay in Gaspé. Hiking in Forillon National Park.

      Day 4: Stay in Gaspé. Visit Percé and Bonaventure Island. (Is one day enough time to visit the town of Percé and go out to Bonaventure Island or should I visit Percé one day and go out to Bonaventure Island on a second day?)

      Day 5: Stay in Gaspé. Whale watching (Where near Gaspé is good for whale watching?)

      Day 6: Stay in Gaspé. Beach (Which beaches are recommended?)

      Day 7: Stopover in Chaleur Bay (What is a good town to stay in Chaleur Bay that is about halfway to Rimouski with lodging, restaurants, and beaches? Carleton-sur-Mer or Bonventure?)

      Day 8: Stopover in Rimouski. Visit Bic National Park (Do I need a second day at Bic National Park?)

      Day 9: Arrive in Quebec City

      Day 10: Quebec City

      Day 11: Return home.

    • Which island to visit - Mingan

      Havre-Saint-Pierre Jul 18, 2016 at 4:10 PM

      We'll be spending a day in mid-October in Havre Saint Pierre via cruise ship. The cruise ship offers a number of excursions offered to see some of the nearby islands. I would most like to see and photograph the monoliths, I think, but other things interest me as well. The choices I have will be a trip to Ile Niapiskau to hike a trail with oddly-shaped monoliths plus flora and fauna, a trip to Petite Ile Au Marteau (with lighthouse and flora and fauna), a trip to Ile Quarry (by zodiac, I believe), and passing Ile du Fantome before landing and exploring the Quarry monoliths, and a land trip to the Cetacean Research Center (& Innu Culture) plus photo stop at Point-Paradis. They all sound good. The difference in cost and time isn't terribly different from one to another, and physically I'm able to do any of them, so I can't decide which one to take. What I love best is photography - so I'm leaning towards seeing monoliths. However, I'm also a big lighthouse lover (have seen over 400 of them) so the chance to see a lighthouse is tempting me as well. I'm not crazy about museums, although the Cetacean Research Center sounds pretty interesting.

      If anyone has opinions I'd love to hear them!

      Central digs, or otherwise ?

      Montreal May 12, 2016 at 8:15 PM

      Hello ! Two of us will be in Montreal later on this year. It has been many years since I was last there, and my partner has NEVER been there. I am having great difficulty with 'deciding' WHERE we should pitch a tent: Downtown (Central) or vieux Montreal or Quartier Latin or The Plateau. I understand that with Metro (we will not be driving) we will be able to access all areas in reasonable time. We are budget travelers; but prefer something 'above' a bed in a dorm (inexpensive hotels / B&B's are fine) I am well aware that there are many options in the St. Laurent / East of 'The Main' neighbourhoods- but I read conflicting reviews on various travel sites. Is it worth it to opt for Central accomodation- and then rely on Metro for access to neighbourhoods where there are fantastic options in respect to dining, clubs, shopping, arts & culture, etc...? Whatever help / tips / advice any of You are able to provide will be much appreciated. Thank You.

      Nice town to stay overnight on west side and east side of Gaspé Peninsula

      Gaspé Apr 6, 2016 at 12:16 PM

      My family is planning a road trip in July. We will be starting off with a couple of days in Quebec City, then on to the Gaspé Peninsula; and eventually we'll make our way to PEI to visit friends and then onto les Îles de la Madeleine. The only things we've decided on regarding our time on the Gaspé Peninsula is that we want to spend a couple of nights in the Forillon National Park. But obviously there are other places to see along the way and we're not totally sure where to stop, particularly where we should stay for the night?

      So I'm trying to figure out a few things and I'm hoping you can help!

      1) We'll be leaving Quebec City in the morning and will start our way up the west side of the peninsula. What town/village would be a nice place to stop for the night between Quebec City and Forillon National Park? Is planning to stay somewhere just one night ridiculous, or should we take more time to make our way up to Forillon? Any recommendations for a nice place (or two) to have dinner and spend the night? We'll have a 4 1/2 year old with us if that makes any difference.

      2) Following our two-night stay in Forillon Park, we'll be heading in the general direction of Prince Edward Island. Any suggestions for where to stay on the east side of the peninsula?

      Thanks so much,

      Montreal Feb 12, 2016 at 2:56 PM

      Wow!! Thanks for the info. I have spent many hours looking at all the wonderful places in the Eastern Townships to visit, but would like some advice on specifics. Two youngish senior couples that like food trying to decide between Magog, Brome, Sutton, and other towns for 2-3 days in July. One commenter said Magog is quite crowded in the summer. We are from NY and Cape Cod so that may not be an issue. So, any one town to be our base???.. Looking for a nice B&B, say between $100-150 (US) per nite with a good breakfast, that is near good restaurants and interesting sites. We have a car so that makes getting around OK.

      our plan is to allot 1 day travel time from philadelphia to quebec (and another day back) since we have a baby in tow and would involve a lot of stops... without stops, google maps says its 10 hours travel time

      can anyone please suggest the must-visit places for both montreal and quebec? so far i have the following:

      day 1: travel time from philadelphia to quebec (leave early morning)
      day 2: tour quebec (old city - chatteau frontenac, any more?)
      day 3: travel to montreal / tour montreal ( what to visit? )
      day 4: travel time back to philadelphia

      a good place to eat too and place to stay would be nice too..... nothing fancy because we'll be travelling with an infant...
      again, we'll be visiting in May.
