Itinerary

Welcome to Ontario's capital. Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.

Skirt the shores of Lake Ontario to Niagara Falls, one of the Natural Wonders of the World. Board your Niagara Falls sightseeing cruise for a thrilling ride to view the thundering falls. Return to Toronto, where sightseeing includes the city's major landmarks, such as the banking district, City Hall, the CN Tower, the University of Toronto, and ultra-modern Rogers Centre.

This evening, enjoy an optional outing to the top of the CN Tower for a delicious dinner and spectacular views. 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.

Leave Ontario's capital and stop in Kingston, a city with an exciting history dating back more than 300 years. Proceed along the St. Lawrence River with splendid vistas of Thousand Islands National Park. At Ivy Lea, board your boat for a cruise that takes a scenic route through the many islands of St. Lawrence Islands National Park. Next, head to Ottawa, Canada's beautiful capital.

This morning, enjoy a sightseeing tour of this lovely city on the banks of the Ottawa River and the Rideau Canal. See the Canadian Mint, the embassy district, and stately Parliament Hill. Visit the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Stables, a tribute to Canadian heritage and history. Suggestions for this afternoon include a visit to the magnificent Canadian Museum of History or the array of restaurants and shops at lively Byward Market. NOTE: All dates are subject to availability of the RCMP Stables, and can become unavailable at any time.

Drive into the French-Canadian province of Quebec for a sudden change in language and tradition. Follow the historical King's Highway along the north shore of the mighty St. Lawrence River. Visit the Basilica of Notre Dame de Cap de la Madeleine before arriving in Quebec City, the heart of French Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Enjoy a guided tour of Canada's only walled city, crowned by the turrets of Chateau Frontenac.

Within the walls reside Place d'Armes, Laval Seminary, the star-plan Citadelle, and ancient Place Royale. Also, see the stone houses crowding the narrow streets of Lower Town by the St. Lawrence River. The afternoon and evening are free-your Tour Director will have suggestions for sightseeing, shopping, and dining.

A well organised trip throughout eastern Canada. 1 , NSW, Australia, May 2019
An excellent tour travelling through the eastern cities of French Canada. Our tour guide Peter and coach driver Steve were excellent in keeping our group organised and informed throughout the trip. Peter kept us all entertained and informed with his vast knowledge of this region. A few highlights for me were Niagara Falls, Ottawa City, the included ...read more cruise around the thousand island region and the French influence of Quebec City and Montreal. The accommodation included in this trip was excellent and the optional tours are something everyone should consider.
Ontario & Canadian French Quarter 2 , NSW, Australia, Aug 2018
This trip encompassed a small taste of the French province of Canada leaving you wanting more, which I think was a good thing. We were not rushed as we spent two nights at each hotel, the hotels and locations were very good allowing plenty of time to explore each city, and basically, that's how the trip went, we had lots of our own time to seek out ...read more what inspired us to come to this region of Canada. The trip itself bought you to the Hotel and you could do as you wished. There was little by way of group involvement other than the Niagra falls tour, and with no meals preorganised as part of the trip, most often you were pointed in the direction of some good restaurants and set free. Although this would suit some travellers, being part of a tour group it gave little time to socialize and mingle with other group members. The three optional activities in the last two days where organized meals were set, and we could sit and get to know each other, which was great. Though I felt this was at the wrong end of the trip, we should have had at least one night of a group dinner to socialize at the beginning of the trip, their allowing us to bond. Aside from the days on the bus (where most people slept) interaction within the group fell a little short for me.
For me, the trip was most enjoyable and it will certainly entice me back to this region of Canada to experience more.
Ontario & French Canada 0 , NSW , Australia, Jul 2018
This tour is a perfect way to explore Canada. Our tour director Marisol was awesome, very knowledgeable, witty and well organised. History of places were well explained, we were given tips on where to go and eat, answered all our questions and were given enough time in attractions. Excellent driver Steve always ensuring our safety getting on and off ...read more the bus. Great optional tours. Hotels were in good location just walking distance to downtown. I just wish breakfast was included.

I booked this tour online with Global Journeys and Madeline handled everything and answered all my questions right away. She made my life easy organising this trip. This was my third tour with Cosmos and I'm quite happy with their services.
Ontario & French Canada 0 , QLD, Australia, Jun 2018
I would recommend tour groups between the ages of 35 - 50. This trip was good but due to the age of some, not everyone participated in the active activities therefore losing the group networking. The accommodation was in excellent locations however fridges would be more helpful.
East Canada 2 , WA, Australia, Sep 2016
This was an enjoyable tour of Eastern Canada and we visited many interesting cities. The coach was comfortable and accommodation in all cities except for Quebec was excellent. I can recommend this tour. Enjoy your trip to Canada. The inclusion of breakfast at all hotels would have enhanced our holiday as it would have provided the opportunity to meet ...read more other tour members.
Very well paced tour with sufficient free time 1 , NSW, Australia, May 2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our bus trip, no problems at all from booking process through to the end. Our tour director was very knowledgeable and helpful and kept us well informed of day to day arrangements and interesting facts and history of each place visited, the bus driver was courteous & professional. We found the tour very well paced with sufficient ...read more free time to ourselves to look around. All accomodation was excellent and in good locations to restaurants etc. The included excursions and the optionals we chose to do were interesting and enjoyable, the local guides when used added to our travel experience with their enthusiasm to share their knowledge of the area.
