Our responsible person, Danielle Bougoin, is working hard to bring you the best options for your great enjoyment.

Montreal Amphi-Bus Guided Tours

The adventure begins in the streets of Montreal, then it continues on the St-Lawrence River.  The Amphi-Bus is a vehicle which offers an open outlook on Montreal and on the river.  Sometimes on the road, sometimes on the water, this boat/bus will take you to a guided tour from the cobblestone streets in Old Montreal to the roaring rapids of the St-Lawrence river.

Discover Montreal on trolley, double decker or motor coach luxury bus 

Visit Montreal in a unique way by hopping on and off a London-Style double decker bus.  Gray Line will help you discover Montreal’s rich history and culture as being interesting and diversified.

Discover the Laurentians and the village/station Mont-Tremblant

www.tremblant.ca

The Laurentians are a large range of Quebec mountains and one of the oldest geological formation in the world.  They have ended their formation about thousands of years ago.

Mont-Tremblant : Whether you are coming to Tremblant for its majestic ski mountain with a breathtaking view on the Laurentians or to live the ultimate experience on two of the best public golf courses in Quebec, you will be delighted by the warmth and authenticity of our unique four season global destination.

Discover Ottawa

www.tourismeottawa.ca

In December 31, 1857, Ottawa was chosen capital of United-Canada province by Queen Victoria.  It was chosen because of its geographical location on the border between Upper-Canada and Lower-Canada (in order not to favour neither the English-speaking people and the French-speaking people) and also to keep one’s distance from the U.S.A. border, protecting Ottawa from a possible american attack.

  1. Hi Sol, I notice that information for the workshops has not been on the English website for a few weeks but is on the French site.
    Hope you had a good Christmas
