      Landscapes of Eastern Canada and USA end New York

      Your Itinerary

      1. Arrive New York City

      Nothing beats the thrill of New York City. The towering Manhattan skyscrapers, the salt pretzels sold on every street corner, the trendy Brooklyn dive bars - you've seen it all on the silver screen, and now you're finally here. Soak it in, because there's nowhere else in the world quite like the Big Apple. After settling in to your hotel, meet up with your Travel Director this afternoon before hitting the streets to explore the city, your way. For a bird's eye view to appreciate it all from on high head to the Top of the Rock, or pay a visit to leafy Greenwich Village for boutique shopping and some Sex and the City nostalgia. Feeling hungry? From gourmet food trucks to Michelin Star restaurants, the city that never sleeps ensures you'll never go hungry.

      2. New York City – Philadelphia – Washington (2 Nights)

      If you feel like you only scratched the surface of New York yesterday, this morning's orientation tour will get you acquainted with some of the city's best loved icons. On the coach, you'll then head south to 'Philly' as it's affectionally called by its locals. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage city in 2015 and the home of the legendary cheesesteak sandwich, Philadelphia is also the beating heart of the USA's revolutionary history. Visiting the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall where both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were signed. Masterclass in US history complete, you'll then finish the day rather fittingly in the country's capital and the seat of political power, Washington DC.

      Hotel
      Courtyard Washington DC/ U.S. Capitol

      3. Washington, D.C. Sightseeing

      Today's all about unearthing the political and cultural highlights of this high-flying city. You'll kick things off with a sightseeing tour that will feel more like a walk through a real-life movie set, visiting icons including the gargantuan Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the jewel in America's political crown, the White House. With the rest of the day to explore as you please, the question is really where to start? Perhaps treat your cultural side to an afternoon spent browsing the museums of the Smithsonian Institution, or choose experiences like visiting George Washington's sprawling Mount Vernon Estate, or cruising down the scenic Potomac River whilst enjoying a delicious buffet lunch. This evening we've then got another treat in store - our Optional Experience Washington Illumination Tour, where you'll see DC's most famous monuments lit up in their night time glory.

We'll then meet up with a Local Specialist who will share all about the 'plain' lifestyle of the Amish community, who live without cars, televisions, mobile phones or modern-day appliances.

      5. Lancaster – Niagara Falls (2 Nights)

      Travelling northwest today, you'll journey along the surging Susquehanna River as you cross the western region of New York State. Passing through the Appalachian Mountains and no doubt in utter awe of the scenery around you, bear in mind that this mountain range is one of the oldest on earth, formed around 480 million years ago and spanning the border between the USA and Canada. Speaking of which, it will be cheers all round as you venture onto Canadian soil, arriving into Niagara Falls late this afternoon. This evening, we imagine anticipation levels will be rising as you look forward to the natural spectacle that tomorrow will bring.

      Niagara on the Lake Excursion and Ice Wine Tasting

      Often touted as one of Ontario’s most beautiful towns, Niagara-on-the-Lake is a quaint little town of 15,000 people, nestled on the shores of Lake Ontario where the Niagara River opens out into the lake. This beautiful and historic town used to be home for Ontario’s parliament and it has the distinction of having the world’s first anti-slavery law passed here in 1793. The architecture dates back to when the town was originally known as Newark - the first capital of Upper Canada in 1792. Niagara-on-the-lake offers many interesting attractions on the main street and surrounding area. Take a walk up and down the main street, admire the colonial architecture and explore the many rustic shops and eateries of this historic town. Some highlights on the main street are the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Greaves Jams & Marmalades, boutique ice cream shops and many other little family run boutique shops and cafes. The climate and conditions in the Niagara region make it one of the best areas in Canada for growing fruit and making wines, so we visit a boutique winery to learn about and taste the famous “Icewine.” Elegant, silky, lush, decadent - wine critics wear out thesauruses describing Icewine. Year after year, the Icewines made by the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake take the top awards at competitions around the globe. Approx. duration: 2 hours

      Adult Price: US$25.00

      7. Niagara Falls – Toronto

Known to locals as the 'Six', Canada's hipster enclave and largest city is all about unique neighbourhoods, fusion food, fascinating museums, and a healthy obsession with all things hockey. With the rest of the day all yours to explore, why not head to Queen West to explore the neighbourhood's impressive collection of art galleries and design studios, or test your head for heights at the city's biggest icon, the CN Tower, its 553 metre spire dominating the landscape from every angle.

Arriving here, we'll be listening out for the collective sighs of appreciation as you set eyes on the narrow cobblestone streets and pretty parks for the first time. No doubt itching to explore, why not unearth the city's gastronomic side today, or head to Saint-Rich for a truly authentic Quebec experience, browsing the many shops, restaurants and art galleries that line the streets here.

      10. Quebec Sightseeing and Free Time

      After no doubt grabbing a taste of France with a croissant and coffee, you'll be heading out to join a Local Specialist this morning for a tour of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Town.

This afternoon, why not continue your Quebec love affair with our Optional that will get you out of town to admire the towering Montmorency Falls. Standing at 83 metres these falls are actually higher than Niagara Falls, forming the mouth of the Montmorency River. Travelling back to Quebec City, you'll then be treated to a 3-course dinner in the historic district of Vieux-Quebec, tucking in to a menu of freshly sourced, organic ingredients.

      11. Quebec City – Montreal

      We hope you're hungry this morning as for breakfast you'll be heading to the iconic Erabliere le Chemin du Roy, a traditional Cabana a Sucre (sugar shack) to learn how maple syrup, one of Canada's most famous exports, is made. You'll then make the short drive to Montreal, Canada's cultural capital where festivals, art, good food and a certain joie de vivre are all part of the daily make up.

      It's goodbye Canada today as you cross the border back into the United States, journeying through the soaring peaks of the White Mountains into the state of Vermont, famed for its lush farmland, sprawling mountains and pretty as a postcard villages. If you're travelling in Autumn, you're in for a real treat as the landscape is transformed with shades of sunshine yellow and burnt orange as far as the eye can see. Stopping by the state's capital, Concord, you'll gain an appreciation for why Vermont is nicknamed 'the granite state' as soon as you spot the centre piece of the city, State House, which exemplifies the use of the material. Finally, you'll finish up in Boston, Massachusetts, America's oldest city.

This afternoon, why not discover a different side to the city? As the home of baseball legends the Red Sox, and the Celtics basketball team, Boston takes their sport just as seriously as they take their seafood, where local specialities include 'sacred cod', fresh lobster and creamy chowder.
