What our clients are saying about their journeys through Eastern Canada
“Casual but stylish and luxurious trip in Eastern Canada ”
Relaxed itinerary with 2 day stay in Toronto, Ottawa & Quebec and finishing in Montreal. Fantastic organisation and very informative host. Ben was very knowledgeable with regards to the history of this lovely country. Ben and Eugene the bus driver were both so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they are a valuable asset for luxury gold and great ambassadors and proud Canadians. The Fairmont hotels were beautiful to stay in and the coach was roomy and comfortable.
“Awesome Eastern Cities of Canada”
Our tour guide Sharon and driver Tim were the perfect hosts, a mixture of professionalism and fun. The tour went like clockwork from Brisbane airport back to Brisbane airport. The hotels were exceptional value for money, clean and comfortable. The only minor criticism was the guide on our optional tour of Mont Tremblant and the Laurentian. She was more like a strict teacher escorting a group of children than a tour guide. This did not distract from the beauty of the area and the tour was well worth ...read more the money. Going via LAX was a bit daunting but this is beyond Cosmos's control. It was an experience and we survived. An extra day in Quebec city would have been a bonus. We are going on the British Isles in depth next year with Cosmos this is a indication of how we feel about Cosmos tours.
As a solo traveller I am Just back from 16 day Eastern Canada and USA tour with tour director Todd and driver Joe. I highly recommend this tour and we even had one lady who was doing it for the second time! Nothing was too much trouble for Todd and Joe who were both extremely professional. We had the added bonus of driver Joe's hometown knowledge of Boston. Todd was a walking encyclopedia throughout the entire trip. I'm sure we were very lucky to have a really friendly group of people and ...read more I must commend Todd for very efficiently dealing with a medical emergency with one of our ladies whilst in Washington. A useful point to note was the use of a free laundry at our hotel in Bar Harbour. The main purpose of the trip for me was to see the autumn colours but I think a later trip may have had a better show. There was plenty of colour but I did expect more (can't predict the weather) and a couple of our travel days were wet which didn't impact too much. Although this was a quite long tour I would have liked more time in Quebec and with hindsight should have spent an extra couple of days in New York. I chose to return to Washington and spent 4 days trying to cover the Smithsonian Museums but barely scratched the surface. The tour did cover visits to most of the monuments.
The Maritimes are rich in both geography and history. The tour ranged from the rocky coastline with its lighthouses to the wooded inland, with stops in the villages and towns in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Cabot Island and Prince Edward Island (a must for the fans of Anne with an E). Highlights included; the Cabot Trail, Cadillac, the Fisheries Museum in in Lunenburg (where the fate of the cod fishing industry was described), the guided tour of Halifax (along with the visit to the graves of the dead ...read more from the Titanic, the memorial to the victims of the 1917 explosion of a munitions ship and the Citadel), the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, the ‘hookers’ of Cheticamp and, of course, Green Gables. Architecture buffs will appreciate the changing styles of the buildings from Maine to Prince Edward Island. Travelling during the North American Fall, with the trees changing colour, was an added bonus. The accommodation (apart from the last night) was superior and the meals provided as part of the tour did not disappoint (unless you don’t like lobster and scallops). I also liked the free time to potter and explore at our various stops. However, a trip like this depends on the tour director and the driver. I had prepaid the gratuities for both and felt that neither really deserved them, especially the driver who knew only two speeds: fast and stop. Nor did he see it as his job to clean the coach on a regular basis. The tour director sometimes gave information on locations visited, at others not, leaving us with a very patchy sense of the historical and geographical significance of places visited. Nor did she make any arrangements for stops for group members to photograph the changing colours of autumn. Yet, neither director nor driver could detract from the extraordinary beauty of the Maritimes. As for Global Journeys: to use an old Australian expression, their blood is worth bottling. Thanks Jemma.
