Trip to Canada

Our experience with Entree Canada was excellent. All of the drivers and cars were very good and the recommended guides were knowledgeable and helpful. They scheduled us on Via Rail Canada from Montreal to Quebec City and the attendants were extremely nice and helpful as were the lady porters. One of our traveling companions lost a hearing aid while on the train and didn't discover it until we reached the hotel, Auberge St. Antoine, who called immediately. The train had departed. Miraculously, the next day Via Rail brought the hearing aid to the hotel. That is really good service. Use Entree Canada if you travel to Canada.
