1 Toronto.
Welcome to Ontario's capital. Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to answer any questions.
2 Toronto. Excursion To Niagara Falls.
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.

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