Come celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday this year with Worldwide Ecotours in La Belle Province of Quebec with your host, Ann Van de Reep. Our journey takes us from one of the world’s largest botanical garden in Montreal to one of the smallest, the Joan of Arc Garden in Quebec City as well as special access to a few spectacular private gardens. Some gardens such as Reford Gardens (Jardins de Metis) and Domaine Joly-De Lotbinière combine historical and horticultural discoveries. Other gardens blend French and English garden design and traditions. We take a dinner cruise on magnificent Lake Memphrémagog in the Eastern Townships and explore the heritage of Montreal and Quebec City by bus and on foot. We invite you to join us as we explore the diverse and beautiful gardens of Quebec.
