Get a look at Canadian culture with a Tour Director from Montreal

Join Dave at his scenic cottage in the Laurentides region of Quebec, known for its beautiful mountain scenery (and great downhill skiing). He’ll give you a tour of his home, then dive in to the sweet stuff—maple syrup! Dave will take you from tree to tap to bottle, telling you everything about how to make maple syrup, how it’s used, and how it’s exported around the world. Then, he’ll let you know about some of his favorite ways to use maple syrup in cooking so you can bring a taste of French Canada home. Before you go, he’ll share some common French phrases and insight into Canadian history and culture. By the time the lesson ends, you’ll be a true Quebecois!
