Join Tauck Directors Sydney Holmes, Genevieve Thibault and Felix Audet as they walk you through the most popular cities in Eastern Canada: Toronto, Niagara Falls, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City. They intertwine stories of historical relevance while the camera pans modern day cityscapes, highlighting what makes each city unique and diverse.
Valerie Dulin, Tour Architect for many of our North America and Canada journeys, designed Canada’s Capital Cities plus Niagara Falls, our popular journey where these major cities are represented. She provides some behind-the-scenes insights and more.
Sydney Holmes has made it to six of the seven continents of the world (Antarctica, she’s on her way)! Her #1 must-try experience while in Canada is “eating poutine in Quebec” (poutine is French fries with cheese curds smothered in gravy – and Quebec was the birthplace of this culinary indulgence). Genevieve Thibault, born and raised in the province of Quebec, has run nearly every Tauck Canadian journey including Manitoba: Polar Bear Adventure. When asked what she thinks is the #1 Canadian highlight, one that is a must-see sight, her answer is “Niagara Falls – for obvious reasons”! Felix Audet has directed a variety of Tauck land journeys and river cruises and is fluent in both French and English; he says, “If you don’t want to fly to Europe, go to Quebec City – you’ll feel like you are there”!
