our mission


Mendel Tours (formerly known as Canadian Cultural Landscapes) began its activities in 1983, with walking tours of Quebec’s historic district and educational programs for student groups. Expanding from our Quebec City base in 1986, we began to offer cultural itineraries across Canada for museum groups and alumni associations. Year after year, since that time, we have provided travel programs for clients and institutions who expect the highest standards. In the process we have developed expertise in cultural travel that is unique in Canada.
 
Our Mission: to provide the very best in cultural travel for visitors to Canada.
 
Whether it be a day of touring in Quebec City or a ten-day transcontinental rail journey across Canada, Mendel Tours will organize everything for your group:
• First class hotel accommodations and delightful meals in the finest local restaurants
• Special arrangements and access to historic sites, art exhibitions, private collections and the performing arts
• Inspiring and informative lectures to set the scene for theme-based days of touring and exploration
• Guided tours of the highest quality
• Visits to artists’ studios
• Guest speakers and meetings with local experts and dignitaries
• Cooking demonstrations and cooking classes with renowned chefs
 
Our tailor-made programs open doors to provide an insider’s perspective. By providing itineraries which combine lectures, hands-on activities and tours with expert guides, we offer exceptional travel experiences.
