Hi, We are in Montreal and are planning on driving to Quebec City on Tuesday. My plan was to drive the 20 and stop along the way two or three times in some of the more scenic places. Then on Saturday, I planned to take the 40 back to Montreal to catch our flight back to the US. Our limo driver (Ville Marie car service which was great!) was somewhat horrified that I planned to drive the 20 and said that with the road construction and with the route through all of the villages, it would take just shy of Forever to get to QC. He was definitely of the opinion that we should take the 40 both ways and just resign ourselves to nothing to look at for three hours.
I would love some more input on this - is the 20 really that bad of an idea? I don't want to spend the entire day driving, but thought it would be nice to see some of the villages....
Should we take the 40 to Trois Rivieres and cross over to the 20 from there to come into QC from that point? Should we avoid the 20 altogether?
Thanks for your input!
