Another beautiful port even with crummy weather. We had a fantastic tour guide and he really showed us the city. We chose this tour because the one we had chosen was sold out but good karma was with us and we had a blast because we ended the tour at O'Leary's pub with a beer tasting and Irish song-fest. Too much fun.
Can't say enough about Quebec. This city is an absolute feast for the eyes, ears, and palate. Took the 7.5 hr tour of Quebec and countryside and worth every penny.
Our guide was an articulate, knowledgeable, and friendly young man named PJ Grant. He knew every little corner and crevice of this city and the experience left you feeling as though you had stepped back in time. Loved the sidewalk cafe's, cobblestone streets, beautiful old world architecture, and the people were wonderful, helpful and friendly. We stayed an extra 4 days at the Hotel Du Vieux Quebec and would go back in a heartbeat.
Don't Miss: The Funicular, the Montmorecy Falls, Hotel Chateau Frontenac, and hundred of other things. You need merely to walk up & down the streets.
Sydney, Nova Scotia
We didn't take a tour here because suprisingly, our former next door neighbors were touring Eastern Canada in their motorhome and met us at the port. We did enjoy a trip to the Alexander Graham Bell Museum with them as well as lunch at a little seaside restaurant. The Best seafood chowder we have ever tasted (next to mom's ,of course).
Newport, Rhode Island
Did not take a tour here since we have been here before but loved the little town and enjoyed lunch at one of the seaside restaurants.
Corner Brook, Newfoundland
This was our itinerary change and we could have well just enjoyed another day at sea instead. Not much here although the people were extremely friendly but the town was not cruise ship-friendly as we seemed to overwhelm them. They certainly tried their best though.
Don't Miss: Do miss going to the "mall".
Bar Harbor, Maine
This was an absolutely awesome adventure. The Acadian Forest with the trees just starting to turn, the little town of Bar Harbor so inviting and friendly. The Lobster Bake & Acadian Forest Tour was so much fun & the Lobster---yum!
