Quebec, Canada Christmas gay  tourThe Christmas season is one of the most picturesque times of the year, and the most visually stunning places to celebrate are those which are covered in snow and brightly lit, dressed up in festive holiday attire. Europe is especially known for its open-air markets, public festivities, lovely music, and the general gayety of the season. Christmas in Europe can make you feel like a kid again, and that is where we have gone for our past three Toto Christmas tours. This year we go somewhere with dazzling Christmas traditions that is just a couple of hours away from US - French Canada!

A French colony for almost two hundred years, Canada was originally known as New France. Even today, the province of Quebec retains the language of its earliest European settlers, along with many of its customs including French Christmas traditions. The magical cities of Montreal and Québec will be dressed up in colorful lights, welcoming us to join in their holiday celebrations. Enjoy three nights in each city, a guided tour of both, train travel between them, and a special welcome dinner and farewell Christmas feast. Escape the American hysteria surrounding the Holidays and surround yourself with classic, old-world Christmas spirit.

Trip Notes

Entry Requirements
For U.S. Citizens a valid passport is the only document required to enter Canada for stays of up to 60 days.

Immunizations & Health
No immunizations are currently required for travel to Canada, but it is wise to have your inoculations up-to-date. Is your tetanus booster current?

Exit Requirements
There is currently no separate departure tax required of visitors leaving Canada other than that included with the cost of your airline ticket.

Making Travel Arrangements to Canada
On this tour, international airfare is NOT included. You will need to get your international air to Montreal, and returning from Quebec City.
You will need to arrive in Montreal by 4:00 pm on December 20, 2018. Departure is from Quebec City at any convenient time on December 26, 2018.

What to Bring
In December, average daily temperatures will be cold in Canada. Montreal temperatures will range from 22 to 29 degrees, and Quebec a few degrees colder with temperatures ranging between 15 and 22 degrees. You won’t need a suit jacket or tie, as the tour is informal and dinner attire will be casual, but you will want nice outfits for concerts and dinners. Try to pack light and bring only one piece of luggage plus your carry-on. Create mix and match outfits, and think about layering! Pack any medications you require in a carry-on bag and leave expensive jewelry at home.

Money Matters
The Canadian Dollar is the national currency of Canada (the code is CAD when looking up exchange rates). All major credit cards are accepted throughout the country. As of January 15, 2018, the exchange rate was $1 U.S to $1.22 CAD.

Tipping in Canada
Tipping is pretty much the same in Canada as it is in the United States. Gratuities are not included on the restaurant tabs (except for larger groups), and it is customary to leave a 15 – 20% tip depending on quality of service. We will offer a group tip to guides and drivers, and more details will be provided before departure.

Travel Insurance
We strongly encourage you purchase Travel Insurance to cover all aspects of your travel in Canada.
