I was wondering if you do any stops in Maine on the way through like Bangor (Stephen King), and I really want to try some of this Maine lobster I keep reading about. Do you actually stop in Newport when you leave New York of just drive through.<BR><BR>Also, how did people find the locals in Quebec? I am a little worried not speaking anything but very basic French!!

    Hi when I did this tour we stopped in Rhode Island for lunch,I think it was Newport(99%). We had two hours there.
    Plus the people in Quebec are fantastic. Our tour went out as a group to the clubs and I misplaced everyone from the tour(might have has a few) but I got talking to a guy with no french on my part and very broken english from him. He took me to meet his sister who was learning english and I spent the rest of the night with them buying me my drinks. One of the best nights out I had.
