Maritime Bus

Pros: Amazing view everywhere. Cons: Add the opening staff in the ticketing window because the volume of the people is non stop so the line up will flow smoothly. Tips: Should be early all the time before your trip to avoid any hassle.

City Information

Montreal

Effortlessly blending quaint old buildings with the high-rises of the 21st century, Montreal is an exciting destination for adventure-seekers as well as introverted travelers. We even propose Montreal as a fantastic bachelorette party destination to consider. At the beating heart of this modern city is the quarter of Old Montreal, where you can find horse-drawn carriages and cobblestone streets. As you meander through the area, don’t miss out on the chance to marvel at the architectural genius of the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal, which is one of the most iconic structures of the city. For those who wish to stay close to nature, the gigantic Parc du Mont-Royal will satisfy all your needs. In the warmer months of the year, you can rent a boat and row on Lac des Castors, which offers amazing views.

Montreal is heaven for fans of French cuisine. The top-rated traditional French restaurants converge in the Old Montreal quarter, and some local favorite names include Toque, LOV, Crew Collective & Cafe. For those looking for Canadian specialties, head over to Schwartz’s.

The principal rail station for Montreal is the Central Station, which is served by both VIA Rail and Amtrak. If you are traveling by bus, head to the Montreal Coach Terminal (aka Gare d'autocars de Montréal) from where you can catch buses operated by Greyhound and several other carriers. The city’s main airport is the Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport, which is located in the nearby city of Dorval.

Québec City

Boasting quaint cobblestone streets and towering cathedrals, Québec City will make you feel like you are in France, with a unique Canadian touch. The city’s prime attraction lies in its Old Quarter, which features winding cobblestone streets and some of the city’s most iconic architectural marvels such as the Citadel or the Notre-Dame Basilica. Take a stroll around the quarter, and you might find yourself transported to Europe. If you wish to take a break from the hustles and bustles of a big city for a while, drive 9 miles northeast of the Old Town and you will reach Montmorency Falls Park, with its iconic 272-foot fall. The park’s idyllic beauty and its amazing landmarks will certainly strike a chord with nature lovers. For those who just can’t have enough with the town’s interesting history, head over to Place-Royale, which was the original birthplace of the French Colony and the French-American community.

Québec City’s food scene features a very strong French influence. If you want to try local specialties with a distinctive French twist, try La Traite or Le Clocher Penché. For lavish dinners, head over to Restaurant Initiale. And for a chic bachelorette party trip, plan to hit up Québec City's spas and book an afternoon tea.

The city’s principal VIA Rail train station is the Gare du Palais, and the main bus station is right next to it. The main airport in the city is the Jean Lesage International Airport, 8.1 miles west of the city.
