Montreal, Quebec

Two weeks Montreal & Quebec

Hi, I'm planning to travel to Montreal and Quebec between 20th of June and 3rd of July.

I'm a young woman travelling alone, no rental car, just me and my backpack :-) 

My plan is to go about 5 to 6 days in Montreal, 4 to 5 days Quebec city and then see some beautiful places like Tadoussac, Mont Tremblant, go whale-watching...

Do you have any tips for the two cities and for the public transportation to be able to discover the area?

Thanks in advance,

In Montreal everyone will tell you check out Mont Royal.  The view from the top is really great.  Also for more local culture, i'd recommend staying in or visiting Le Plateau and Mile-End for coffee, food, parks and entertainment. if you are in Quebec City, make the trip out to Parc national de la Jacques-Quartier - it's just out of town and is really beautiful, with Moose and other local wildlife.   Tadoussac is great, and we did the whale watching there and were lucky enough to see a lot of blue whales.   Parc National du Bic is also a spectacular place to stay along the way.

Mortal and Quebec are super easy for public transport,. In-between I think your best bet is train between Montreal and Quebec and the rest by bus. 

You can bus to Mont Tremblant quite easily from Montreal, and to Tadoussacquite easily from Quebec City. You may want to find a place to stay overnight in Tadoussac as it is about 4+ hours from Quebec. 

monteal and Quebec are very safe and very friendly. Don't hesitate to go out by yourself as you'll meet friendly québécois. Montreal is the flirtiest city in the world, so don't be put off if a stranger buys you a drink or offers a compliment... That is just the way we do things, and it doesn't mean anything more that a friendly night.

Montreal is a very safe city. The buses and subway/ metro can get you all over town.

re where to stay I suggest you look at tripadvisor- Montreal hotels - downtown area is called Ville-Marie district.

Public transit in Montreal is excellent.I think you can take the train to Quebec.In Quebec City stay downtown because you can walk but it's necessary to be within the walls - just close.

If you can speak French, this would be helpful.  My experience in the Province of Quebec is in Historic District of Old Québec .  Took a cab ride from the airport in Quebec City to Old Quebec city.  Best way to get around is using the bus or taxi.
