Rewarding its top Quebec selling travel agents, Anderson Vacations recently hosted a five-day fam trip in Montreal and Quebec City. The trip featured a full itinerary, a customized independent time tour program and Anderson’s favorite accommodations.Beginning in Montreal, agents took in the view from the Montreal Tower and enjoyed a site inspection at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth hotel where they got to stop in the John Lennon room where the song “Give Peace a Chance” was recorded.Chateau Laurier hosted the agents’ stay in Quebec City where they sipped and sampled local cider wines, cheese and chocolate to get a taste of the city. To take in the sights, Anderson utilized trains and planned stops at Montmorency Falls and Baie-Saint-Paul, which is known for attracting artists as well as for being the birthplace of Cirque du Soleil.Coming full circle to conclude the trip, agents returned to Montreal for the Great Montreal Guided Tour with Grayline Montreal which proved to be a highlight of the trip for Christine Stowe, an Anderson host, who said that “walking around old town Montreal with a local guide through the old town, learning about the architecture and visiting historical places made us all fall in love with Montreal’s charm.”
