Itinerary

10 Day Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Fly to Boston where you will be met and transferred to your hotel.

  • Day 2 - Boston - New England - Québec City

    This morning, we travel through the rural New England states of New Hampshire and Vermont on our way to Canada. We will pass through small picturesque villages and the White Mountains, which are particularly beautiful during the fall foliage.

    We will cross the international border to enter the Canadian province of Québec. Perhaps visit an authentic maple farm and this evening, take the opportunity to sample some of the celebrated French-Canadian cuisine (optional).

  • Day 3 - Québec City - Montreal

    We begin the day with a tour of Québec City, the French capital of the province and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Highlights include the Québec Provincial Parliament Building and the Citadelle.

    Then, enjoy a walking tour of the walled city, where you will see the Château de Frontenac, as well as unparalleled views of the Saint Lawrence River.

    You may want to enjoy a finishing pastry, baguette or candy treat, and, if time allows, may we suggest a visit to Rue du Tresor before departing to Montréal.

    Upon arrival, take an optional tour of Old Montréal, the area known as the 'Vieux Port', with stops at Place Jacques Cartier and Notre Dame Basilica.
  • Day 4 - Montreal - Ottawa - Toronto

    We depart Montréal for the capital of Canada, Ottawa. This vibrant city of parks and flowers boasts one of the most impressive parliament buildings in the world.

    In the afternoon, we continue along the 1000 Islands Parkway to the largest English-speaking city in Canada, Toronto, located on the shore of Lake Ontario.

    Join an optional excursion on the St. Lawrence River and explore the magnificent scenery on a relaxing cruise.

  • Day 5 - Toronto - Niagara Falls

    We begin the day with a drive through Toronto’s impressive collection of modern skyscrapers, most notably, the CN Tower, one of the world’s tallest free-standing structure (1,815 ft./553 m). Do you dare to stand on the glass floor located over 300 meters above Toronto (optional)?

    We continue along Lake Ontario, crossing the Welland Canal, before arriving at Niagara Falls, where you will be amazed at this natural wonder. Stroll along Table Rock, see the unique Floral Clock and view the thundering water of the Horseshoe Falls.

    Perhaps take an optional tour on the renowned Hornblower Cruises boat ride at the base of the falls.

  • Day 6 - Niagara Falls - Gettysburg - Amish Country

    Today, we ride through the rolling farmland of upstate New York, known as the Finger Lakes region, and enter the keystone state of Pennsylvania.

    This afternoon, visit the historic Gettysburg Civil War national battleground, site of the largest battle ever fought on American soil, and the place where President Lincoln gave his famous address in 1863.

    We travel along the Susquehanna River to south Pennsylvania for an overnight stay.

  • Day 7 - Amish Country - Washington D.C.

    We travel through rural countryside to Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Visit an Amish museum and see their 300-year-old tradition of simple living (admission included). The Amish people live in a world that stopped in the mid 1850s. They use no electricity, mechanical devices, or modern equipment.

    In the afternoon, we continue to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.
