Itinerary

Expand All
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 signaled 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.
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.
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 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. Then, board your NIAGARA FALLS SIGHTSEEING CRUISE 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.
11 Niagara Falls - Lancaster.
Leave Canada and head southeast through the Appalachian Mountains and along a portion of the Susquehanna River into Pennsylvania Dutch farm country. Tonight, join the optional excursion and experience a traditional Amish dinner.
12 Lancaster - Pennsylvania Dutch Country - Washington DC Area.
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, see the Lincoln and Washington Monuments, National WWII Memorial, and photo stops at Capitol Hill, the White House, and other well-known sights. Your Tour Director will also suggest a number of independent activities that explore different facets of this splendid city.
14 Washington DC Area - Philadelphia.
Travel north this morning to Philadelphia for included sightseeing focusing on the important buildings of this historic city, the "Birthplace of the Nation."
15 Philadelphia - New York City.
This morning, leave for New York City via Newark International Airport for those with homebound flights. Please schedule flights after 6 pm. For guests with flights out of Kennedy or LaGuardia airports, transfers are not included; we suggest booking flights after 7 pm. The trip ends in Manhattan in the late afternoon for guests on the New York city extension.

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

- NSW, Australia Apr 2019 3 Helpful Votes

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
