See Boston Common; the Old State House; Old North Church, from where Paul Revere got the signal to start his famous ride; Freedom Trail; and Faneuil Hall, with a chance to browse in Quincy Market. Next, board a harbour CRUISE that takes you to see the Bunker Hill Monument. Balance of the day at leisure. (B)

Boston - Franconia Notch State Park - Quebec City

Journey north through New Hampshire, passing the state's capitol dome at Concord and continuing to the majestic beauty of FRACONIA NOTCH STATE PARK in the scenic White Mountains. Capture inspiring views of one of nature's true masterpieces as the grandeur of mountain scenery blends to a green carpet panorama in northern Vermont, which is blessed with innumerable forests and lakes. Enter the French-Canadian province of Quebec. The next two nights are in romantic Quebec City on the banks of the mighty St. Lawrence River. Until the British victory of 1759, Old Quebec was the centre of New France, and today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This evening, why not enjoy regional French cuisine with dinner in Old Town Quebec? (B)
4

Quebec City

Start the day with an included tour by a Local Guide of Canada's only walled city, including the Place d'Armes, ancient Place Royale, and the Plains of Abraham. The balance of the day is free for independent sightseeing. Tonight's included dinner outing takes you to Montmorency Falls and over to ILE D'ORLEANS for a delightful dinner at a fine restaurant in a restored 17th-century flour mill. (B/D)
5

Quebec City - Montreal

Travel southwest to Montreal, Canada's second-largest city. Sightseeing with a Local Guide includes NOTRE DAME BASILICA, the Old Seminary of St. Sulpice, and a drive to the top of Mount Royal to enjoy a panoramic view of the city. Afternoon is at leisure.

Dinner tonight is at a specially selected restaurant. (B/D)
7

Ottawa - Toronto

This morning, take a guided tour of PARLIAMENT OF CANADA, where you'll be in the centre stage of Canadian democracy. Learn about the Parliament's history and hear stories about some of the key players. Later, sit back and relax as you journey through Ontario to Toronto, the cosmopolitan provincial capital. (B) NOTE: When the Parliament is unavailable to visit, a trip to Ottawa's Byward Market will be substituted, including the chance to sample a delicious Beavertail pastry, a Canadian specialty shaped like a beaver tail!
8

Toronto

On today's sightseeing, view Toronto's two city halls, the Ontario legislature buildings, the university, and some neighbourhoods, including Chinatown. The balance of the day is free, and your Tour Director will have plenty of suggestions for things to do and see in Canada's largest city. Our optional dinner outing includes a visit to the top of the famous CN Tower for great views of Toronto's harbour and skyline. (B)
9

Toronto - Niagara Falls

Drive around the "Golden Horseshoe" of Lake Ontario and through vineyards and rich farmlands. Then, board a Niagara Falls sightseeing CRUISE for a thrilling boat ride to view the thundering falls from river level. You may opt to take the optional helicopter flight over the falls. This evening, consider an optional dinner at a local restaurant followed by a once-in-a-lifetime experience to personally light up the falls. (B) NOTE: Operation of the Niagara Falls sightseeing cruise is subject to favourable weather and/or river conditions. Favourable conditions usually exist from May to November. When conditions are unfavourable, a walking tour through the scenic tunnels will be substituted.

Niagara Falls - Lancaster

Cross the border at Rainbow Bridge and enter New York State. Then, journey into Pennsylvania through the rolling Appalachian Mountains and on to Lancaster, home of the Amish and Mennonite communities whose religious faiths stress humility, family, community, simple living, and separation from the world. Tonight, visit an AMISH FAMILY and their farm, where you will learn more about their faith, culture, and traditional way of life that excludes the use of modern conveniences such as electricity and telephones. You'll have the chance to visit the barn, see their miniature horses, learn about their homemade quilts and crafts, and enjoy a delicious dinner. (B/D)

Lancaster - Washington Dc

This morning, depart for Washington DC, the nation's capital. Join us for the optional dinner tonight at one of Washington's favourite restaurants, followed by an illumination tour of some of the city's most beautiful monuments. (B)

What a tour, the places you go are fantastic, however some place you need more time, but it gives you a idea where to go when you go back by your self and not on a tour. The coach crappy seats and some days you done a lot of kilometres. Booking with Global Journeys (Yvonne) made it easy, they sure you had nothing to worry about in booking with them. Global Journeys discount is the best in Australia.

13 days was a perfect tour-length which enabled us to see so much more of this part of North America than we would have if we had tried to travel independently. There was a great mix of organised activities (local guides employed were fantastic) and free time to explore as well as included and independent dinners. The hotels were all in nice parts of the cities, mostly easy walking to city centre and/or places to visit during free time. The hotels were all very good quality, quiet and comfortable. Some did not have free wifi in the rooms (but available in the lobby) which was annoying. Tony, our motor coach driver, was very knowledgeable and travel was very comfortable, with appropriate distances between cities and 'comfort stops'. Alison, our tour guide, kept us all organised and pointed out interest points along the way.

Niagara Falls was fantastic. Loved the variety; eg. Amish dinner/fall foliage/Quebec's old buildings. Montreal and Toronto underground shopping centres were an experience like nothing in Australia.

The whole tour was a fantastic experience, it was so great to see all the cities that we visited, a longer stay in some places would have been nice, but I guess we will have to try and go back at another time. The tour director, Brenda Turner, was very knowledgeable about the cities and during the coach travel between cities. We did not realize there were optional tours available, but it was great to be able to do the ones which we did. (All except Montreal dinner and Helicopter over Niagara Falls). We will look forward to doing another tour with Globus in the future. Thank you Michelle for your assistance in making this part of our trip to Canada and USA possible and so much fun, we met some very nice people from Australia, New Zealand and USA, people we can now keep in contact with through emails, etc. and maybe catch up again someday. Thanks again.
