Want to explore the second largest French speaking city in the world? Planning a school trip to Montreal for your students is a great opportunity for them. They will see a city with an incredible French heritage. Now it is a multi-cultural center of culinary delights, festivals, arts, racing, hockey and much, much more.

Anytime is a good time. We might recommend avoiding some of the peak events like the Grand Prix in early June. Winter is a terrific time to discover how Montrealers and the Quebecois tame the long winters. Outdoor activities abound in winter as in summer.
