Itinerary

Take a bite of the Big Apple and you’ll wish you’d had more, as the vision and passion of this vibrant city inspires you to believe your dreams really will come true. Check in to your New York hotel and spend the afternoon exploring its soaring skyline on your terms. This evening, you’ll meet your Travel Director and fellow travelers for a Welcome Reception at 6 pm (WR) Stay: Shelburne Hotel and Suites by Affinia

From the iconic to the unexpected, we embark on an orientation tour of the City that Never Sleeps. View the towering Art Deco façades of the Empire State Building, pulsating Times Square and the tranquil mid-city oasis of Central Park. We’ll journey through the Land of the Free to Philadelphia and visit the Liberty Bell Center to gaze upon the famous cracked bell whose inscription has inspired so many to “proclaim liberty”. View Independence Hall, site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, before traveling to Washington, D.C. (B/D) Stay: Capital Hilton

Celebrate the proud heritage of a nation as you view the memorials and monuments that have made Washington famous. Pass the White House, the U.S. Capitol Building, the Lincoln Memorial, and the World War II and Vietnam War memorials. Spend the rest of the day at leisure walking in the footsteps of great men and women who have shaped America as we know it today. Consider a visit to one of the Smithsonian museums or pay tribute to America’s founding fathers at the many sites that dot the city. (B)

Journey into the rural back roads of Pennsylvania's Lancaster County with a Local Specialist today, immersing yourself in the traditional agricultural lifestyle of the Amish and the Mennonites, who live much the same they did when they first settled here over 200 years ago. This evening's Stays With Stories was built in 1873 in the heart of Amish Country. Enjoy a hearty Regional Dinner, and try your hand at making your own whoopie pies for dessert. (B/RD) Stay: The Inn at Leola Village

We’ll travel north across Pennsylvania’s rural landscapes to the eastern corner of New York State, stopping en route at the Corning Museum of Glass. Witness first-hand the delicate craft of glassblowing and admire the glass artistry on display in its galleries. Later, we’ll cross the Canadian border bound for Niagara Falls. (B) Stay: Hilton Hotel and Suites Niagara Falls/Fallsview

Experience the soul-stirring rush of cascading waters as we embark on an exhilarating boat ride to the base of Horseshoe Falls, which plunges dramatically into Lake Ontario. Enjoy some free time to explore on your own, contemplating this tremendous force of nature. We’ll continue to the flower-filled, tree-lined historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. This evening we'll Connect With Locals at a local winery and sample some of Niagara’s regional cuisine paired with their delicious vintages at a Be My Guest dinner. (B/BMG)

Skirt the shores of Lake Ontario and stop in Oakville where you will learn the art of playing hockey with a real Canadian hockey player. Dive into Culture and embrace Canada's national sport, as you learn the secrets of hockey players and how to score a goal from a professional coach. Continue on to Toronto where the rest of the day is free. (B) Stay: Sheraton Centre

After an introductory tour of Toronto, head to Ottawa for an orientation tour of Canada's Capital City. The rest of the day is yours to do as you please. (B) Stay: Sheraton Ottawa

Enjoy a breakfast on the grounds of the Museum of History followed by a presentation of the Algonquin People including the Friendship dance. MAKE TRAVEL MATTER and learn and support the Manitobah Mukluks Storyboot School, a Treadright supported project. Our love affair with French-speaking Canada continues today as we go on our voyage to Québec City and the UNESCO-listed Old Quebec. Immerse yourself in the city’s joie de vivre and romantic 17th century façades, but not before we Dive Into Culture with lunch at an authentic Cabane a Sucre (Sugar Shack), a tradition dear to Quebecois. (B/L) Stay: Delta By Marriott

Explore Quebec City's winding streets and historic sites, joining your Local Specialist for an in-depth discovery of a city that exudes all the charm of old Europe.

The afternoon and evening are yours to explore La Vieille Capitale on your terms. (B)

Visit a local farmers market outside of Montréal to Dive Into Culture and experience the flavours of the region during a lunch tasting including wine and cider.

(B/L) Stay: Le Centre Sheraton

Return to the United States this morning and traverse New Hampshire bound for Franconia Notch, in the heart of the White Mountains. As you journey past sugar maple and white birch in their thousands, keep a keen eye out for the black bear, moose and deer that find sanctuary in these scenic forest landscapes. (B) Stay: Boston Park Plaza

Connect with the living history of Boston this morning, touring the city’s red brick Freedom Trail with stops at the Old North Church and Boston Harbor, the site of the famous Tea Party. Spend the rest of the day on your terms. Consider a visit to the bar that inspired the TV show Cheers or stroll through the centuries-old Boston Common.

Good trip.   3 , VIC, Australia, Jul 2019
We enjoyed our East Coast tour although it was very tiring as we did this after a two week West Coast tour. We saw plenty and the highlight was definitely Niagara Falls. This was a reasonably small group of 25 people. There were some long days and it was very hot as the US had heatwaves while we were there. Our tour director and driver were good. Booking ...read more with Global Journeys was easy and would definitely use them again.
Relaxing Canadian holiday   2 , NSW, Australia, Jul 2019
Travelling with Trafalgar was great, safe, enjoyable and educational. We had 52 in our group from various countries. We made new friends and shared many stories and it felt like having a big family. Our Tour Director Ben Coute was very very good. Very knowledgeable, helpful, well organised. The coach driver Josehe drove us safely.
Fantastic tour of East Coast USA and Canada 6 , VIC, Australia, Apr 2019
For us the tour was very comprehensive and extremely well constructed. The tour director Ben Conti had an incredible general knowledge of the areas we visited and also had the ability to disseminate information in a very interesting way. The driver, Jose, was extremely careful and no one was ever worried about his driving.

For us the whole trip ...read more was a highlight and we all got on really well and enjoyed each others company. If pressed for highlights, we would include America's stately capital, Washington, the awe-inspiring Niagara Falls, the incredibly beautiful Quebec City and historical Boston. But to be fair, the highlight was the whole trip itself.

The hotels we stayed at were of a high standard and, importantly, were always centrally located. This allowed us to make the most of the free time we sometimes had to further explore each city we visited. For what we got, we believe that the whole tour was well-priced and certainly value for money.
US East coast and Canada   11 , New Zealand, Oct 2017
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 ...read more 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.
A brilliant East Coast USA and Canada adventure that did not disappoint ...   17 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2017
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.) ...read more 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?
Just sit back and enjoy! 6 , NSW, Australia, Jun 2017
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 ...read more 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.
