The weather was bitter cold when my husband and I disembarked from our cruise ship a few minutes late. Claude was there, out in the elements, waiting for us. We had a nice tour, with stops here and there for a breather while Claude explained some of the highlights of Quebec. Our time together was just a few hours, but with Claude we saw and learned about things that we otherwise would not have noticed.
