Glenside, PA – May 22, 2006 "” For those who want to indulge in all things French, yet don’t want to leave the continent, Gutsy Women Travel is offering two departures of its 5-day Quebec City tour this year which is a fabulous way to see the cradle of French civilization in North America for about $230 a day! April M. Merenda, President & Co-Founder of Gutsy Women Travel will be participating on the August 16th departure of this tour with her mother Gilda and her sister Camille, and she invites other Gutsy mothers and daughters to join them!

According to Ms. Merenda, “This tour is great for women who don’t want the hassles of planning their own visit to Quebec, and it offers a great variety of special features that most people either would not be able to organize on their own or it would take a lot of time arrange.
