Wow what a fantastic trip and the group we travelled with were a lot of fun. The tour director(Ben Conte) was top class and kept us entertained with his great stories. Timing was perfect in early October (fall) as the colour of the trees were spectacular. We spent additional time in New York before the trip which was highly recommended. We loved the vibe and the pre tour trip out to the statue of liberty was a great icebreaker.

All the destinations had something to offer though Niagara falls was amazing, particularly the optional helicopter flight. We loved the history and character of Quebec City and would have loved to spend more time there and for those who love museums and monuments you cant beat Washington, what a great place to visit.

Overall the trip went very smoothly and just flew by. We were sorry to see it end and we are already thinking about other places we can visit with Trafalgar. Thanks for a great trip and the fond memories.

I’d never been to the East Coast of America/Canada before and this tour provided a brilliant introduction into the area. The itinerary was comprehensive yet varied with new experiences each day and plenty of scheduled rest stops along the way to ensure the daily journey with 45 other fellow travellers was not an arduous one.

Trafalgar TD (Dave S.) and our driver (Jose) worked as a well oiled team and were organised, always on time and a great source of knowledge regarding many aspects of each region visited. The addition of local guides (with audio headset walking tours) in various towns added to the experience where tips on where to eat/buy was always welcome. Seat rotation on the coach and a daily schedule “what’s coming up” sheet, kept us informed of departure, arrival and meal points not to mention the all important “bags out” time for the next morning.

Washington D.C was a highlight for me with the monuments/museums as well as the natural beauty of Niagara Falls and the contrasting quaint French influence evident in Quebec City and Montreal. The city of New York lived up to its fast and furious reputation with an orientation tour on the coach as we were heading out of town to the next hotel. Hence I would recommend perhaps getting to NY at least 3 to 5 days before the tour start date, to visit those iconic tourist spots we often only see on TV.

The hotels were well located and within walking distance of most attractions with comfortable rooms, free WiFi and all the mod-cons. I did all the optional tours which included some lovely dinners and a brilliant night tour of Washington which should not be missed. The optional helicopter ride over Niagara Falls looked a tad exorbitant at first, but the amazing flight and sensational photos taken from the air made up for an unforgettable experience.

Can’t speak highly enough of Juliet Scott from Global Journeys who organised all my pre-travel bookings, had plenty of helpful suggestions and was always accommodating towards any changes that came up on my time-line, which was much appreciated !

All in all a great travel journey with a friendly group of people sharing a common goal of soaking up the culture in a new-found part of the world. At least half the group had been on a Trafalgar Tour before (up to 8 times) being testament on how brilliantly this type of travel concept works as I have pleasantly discovered and hope to again in the not too distant future?

This is my third (my husband's first) Trafalgar tour and as usual the quality of the overall tour was terrific. Our tour director Diego was very informative and helpful and Jose was an excellent driver. A great team indeed, which allowed us to completely relax and enjoy the sights and experiences knowing we were well looked after. We also enjoyed the company of our fellow travellers from Australia, New Zealand and the USA. The tour was well paced and overall well balanced. We would never have covered the distances stress free had we hired a car and travelled on our own. Especially driving on the other side of the road! We would highly recommend this tour.

From start, with booking through Global Journeys till the end of the tour, everything went like clockwork. Yvonne Brooks of Global Journeys was prompt and attentive to all of our queries and requests. The Trafalgar Itinerary for 14 Days East Coast USA & Canada was comprehensive. Tour Director showed great initiative, tailoring our journey with interesting extras that were not mentioned in the itinerary. The driver was skilled and accommodating, making our journey safe and pleasant. We met many friendly travel companions and had a wonderful experience of unique culture (Amish Country), local food (lobster, clam chowder) and unforgettable sights (Autumn Colours). The only minor negative was the long drive on a couple of days with early start to the journey that made the trip hectic at times. Otherwise it was almost perfect.

We loved the trip and our tour director Adrian was great fun and very well informed as he had been doing this for a very long time We particularly loved Washington DC and were glad we had two nights there. We were a little disappointed in the hotel in New York but the rest of the hotels were great. Hannah from Global Journeys was extremely helpful and answered my emails promptly.
