Anne-de-Beaupre Basilica, and the Island of Orleans. (2B, L, D)

Day 5 : As we leave Quebec City, we will have a memorable experience in store – visiting the unique “European” city of Montreal. We will be treated to delicious cuisine and fully guided sightseeing in Montreal, including a visit to the Notre Dame Basilica. (B, D)

Day 6 : We will head toward New York State and charming Alexandria Bay where we will enjoy a narrated cruise of the 1000 Islands. (B, D)

Day 7 : A scenic day of travel will carry us back to Pennsylvania with many wonderful memories. (B)
