New York City
Welcome to the "Big Apple!" Your Tour Director is on hand this afternoon to answer any questions.
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.
3
Boston
On your morning guided tour of Boston, see Faneuil Hall, the Old North Church (where Paul Revere was signaled for the departure of British troops to Lexington), the Freedom Trail, and Boston Common. The afternoon is free to explore on your own. This evening, why not dine at a popular downtown restaurant? (CB)
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 Quebec. Overnight in historic Quebec City on the banks of the St. Lawrence River. (CB)
5
Quebec City
This morning, join your travelling companions on a unique optional excursion to the Erabliere le Chemin du Roy Sugar Shack. Visitors to the sugar cabin will enjoy a typical Quebec breakfast, along with a guided visit and presentation to explain the process of maple extraction. Afterward, return to Quebec City for a guided tour of Canada's only walled city, crowned by the turrets of Chateau Frontenac. Until the British victory of 1759, Old Quebec 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 star-plan 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 leisure.
6
Quebec City - Montreal
Today, drive to cosmopolitan Montreal, 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 Montreal, Notre Dame Church, the Seminary of St. Sulpice, built by the first missionary settlers, and modern Montreal.
7
Montreal - Ottawa
Drive west to Ottawa, Canada's beautiful capital. 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.
8
Ottawa - Thousand Islands National Park - Toronto
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.
9
Toronto
Setting Toronto's exciting architectural pace are City Hall; the downtown banking district; Roger's Centre; 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.
10
Toronto - Niagara Falls
Travel south along the lakeshore and through the rich farmlands and vineyards of Ontario to Niagara Falls. Stop at Table Rock and hear the raging waters. Then, board your SIGHTSEEING BOAT for amazing close-ups at the base of the falls. NOTE: Operation of the Niagara Falls sightseeing cruise is subject to favourable weather conditions. When weather is unfavourable, a walking tour through the scenic tunnels will be substituted.

This morning, stop at the AMISH FARM & HOUSE. A Local Guide explains the faith, culture, and way of life of these people for whom tradition forbids the use of electricity or telephones in the home. On to Washington DC for an afternoon arrival.
13
Washington DC Area
The nation's capital is a sightseeing treasure trove, and your half-day tour with a Local Guide visits Arlington National Cemetery to see the graves of American heroes, including those of John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert. Afterward, the Lincoln and Washington Monuments, National WWII Memorial, and photo stops at Capitol Hill, the White House, and other well-known sights.

This is one of the best tours I have done with Cosmos. The tour guide was an extremely capable and knowledgeable guy who enjoyed what he was doing. The entire tour group were very punctual and caring. I was disappointed there were not more breakfasts included but there were lots of eateries as well at that time of the morning. The optional tours were of a good standard. I would recommend a Cosmos tour to any of my friends. Some accommodation I found the airconditioning to be very noisy when it cut in and out.

We have just returned from a second Cosmos trip after travelling on a 15 day-tour through the Eastern US and Canada. We had an amazing time visiting various tourist attractions of 10 US and Canada cities. There was a lot to learn and absorb during the visit: the American history and the role each visited city has played, the unique character of each city of the Eastern Canada.

Most of the hotels were located near or right in the middle of the CBD. All were clean and comfortable for overnight or 2 nights-stays. Our Tour Director, Becky is an exceptional woman who was helpful and knowledgeable about US and Canadian history. She performed beyond her duty to bring us many anecdotes and cheerful thoughts during the bus trip. Nelson, our bus driver had a good sense of humour and always welcomed us with a smile when we entered or left the bus.

Overall, we quite enjoyed the trip and will do the Cosmos tour again in the future. I would also like to thank Jemma at Global Journeys for smoothing out the booking process and letting our vacation to start with no hiccups.

As a previous Cosmos customer, I was confident that our tour would be everything we hoped for but my friend had never been on a bus tour before and was a bit reticent. However she soon realized how worry free it would be and was pleased with the standard of the accommodation. Our guide, Hiliary, turned out to be the best I have ever had. After a tour of New York, we went to Boston where our local guide was a delight. We were all charmed by Quebec City and Montreal. Highlights were breakfast at a sugar shack, the Thousand Islands cruise in sunny weather, spectacular Niagara Falls, dinner at an Amish farm, the museums of Washington DC and historic Philadelphia. Georgie at Global Journeys was a great help with our visa queries, as always. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour.
