Holiday Itinerary - Eastern USA and Canada

Day 1: New York city.

Welcome to the “Big Apple!” Your Tour Director is on hand this afternoon to answer any questions.

Day 2: New York City - Boston.

This morning, on the included sightseeing tour with a local expert, visit Broadway, the Empire State Building, Greenwich Village, Chinatown, City Hall, Wall Street, and Trinity Church. This afternoon, head for Boston—the “Cradle of American Liberty”. Visit its historic landmarks, reflecting the important part it has played in the history of the United States.

Day 3: Boston.

On your morning guided tour of Boston, see Faneuil Hall, the Old North Church (where Paul Revere was signalled for the departure of British troops to Lexington), the Freedom Trail, and Boston Common. The afternoon is free to explore on your own. (B)

Day 4: Boston - Quebec City.

Journey through New Hampshire, passing the State Capitol at Concord and on to the scenic White Mountains. Continue to the Canadian border, where you’ll notice a change in language and tradition as you enter the French- Canadian province of Québec. Overnight in historic Québec City on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. (B)

Day 5: Quebec City.

This morning, join your travelling companions on a unique optional excursion to the Érablière le Chemin du Roy Sugar Shack. Visitors to the sugar cabin will enjoy a typical Québec breakfast, along with a guided visit and presentation to explain the process of maple extraction. Afterward, return to Québec City for a guided tour of Canada’s only walled city, crowned by the turrets of Château Frontenac. Until the British victory of 1759, Old Québec was the centre of New France; today, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Within the walls reside the Place d’Armes, Laval Seminary, the starplan Citadelle with grand vistas from its bastions, and ancient Place Royale. See the Old World houses crowding narrow streets in Lower Town and the historic Plains of Abraham, where General Wolfe stormed the slopes. The afternoon is at your leisure.

Today, drive to cosmopolitan Montréal, one of Canada’s largest cities. Home of Expo ‘67 and the 1976 Summer Olympics, included guided sightseeing includes St. Joseph’s Oratory, the lookout atop Mount Royal, once-walled Old Montréal, Notre Dame Church, the Seminary of St. Sulpice, built by the first missionary settlers, and modern Montréal.

Guided city sightseeing includes Parliament Hill with its Gothic buildings, the Canadian Mint, the Rideau Canal, the hexagonal National Arts Centre, and stately residences and embassies. With the free afternoon you could visit the Canadian Museum of History, with panoramic views of Parliament Hill across the Ottawa River.

Trace the Rideau Canal south to the amazing Thousand Islands National Park. Enjoy many wooded islands along the St. Lawrence River, sprinkled with beautifully simple to opulent summer homes on your included SCENIC CRUISE.

Day 9: Toronto.

Setting Toronto’s exciting architectural pace are City Hall; the downtown banking district; Roger’s Center; and stunning CN Tower, more than a third of a mile high. See all this and more on your morning city sightseeing tour. Then, spend the rest of the day exploring the city sights on your own, including Harbourfront, Ontario Place, and Chinatown.
