1 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, Rockefeller Centre, 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 signalled for the departure of British troops to Lexington), the Freedom Trail, and Boston Common. The afternoon is free to explore on your own. (B)
4 Boston - Quebec City Area
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. (B)
5 Quebec City Area
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 Area - Montreal
Today, drive to cosmopolitan Montreal, one of Canada's largest cities and 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 a 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 tone 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.

The nation's capital is a sightseeing treasure trove, and your half day tour with a Local Guide visits the Lincoln and Washington Monuments, National WWII Memorial, and photo stops at Capitol Hill, the White House, and other well - known sights.

15 Day Eastern US & Canada Grand Vacation reviews from past clients of Global Journeys.

“Ticked off a bucket list item”
- QLD, Australia Sep 2019 2 Helpful Votes

We had Eastern Canada on our wishlist, and our researching found this excursion, which worked in with our primary reason for the trip (our grandson got married in NY Central Park). The motor coach, driver and tour director were very good. The mix of travellers from 'related' countries (Australia, New Zealand, England, Scotland and Wales) was also very good, AND no one in the group was of those annoying types who was always late or overbearing.
The selected hotels...read more

“A great tour of the US & Canada”
- ACT, Australia Aug 2019

This was a great tour, more than I expected. The other 5 who went with me were really thankful to me for choosing this tour. Everyone said Niagara Falls was exciting. Though I learnt a lot about American history, it was great to learn about Canada as well. Having breakfast and visiting 'Maple Syrup' farm in Quebec was great, as we only knew about it from story books. I loved all the cities in Canada. Some of us had emotional experiences visiting Washington DC and New York monuments. I learnt...read more

The only disappointment was Boston and the hotel. It was hard to find my room. The lift wasn’t working and the hotel wasn’t in a very nice area and not close to restaurants etc. My door and the door next door was impossible to open. I managed to get another room which was just as well as the door wouldn’t close.
Our Tour Director and coach driver were very good, I think we needed more time in Washington DC. I think breakfast should be included in each city as we were...read more
