ItineraryCollapse All
Day 1 - UK to Toronto

Depart on your scheduled flight to Toronto. On arrival, we'll transfer you to Niagara Falls for an overnight stay. You'll get your first glimpse of this natural wonder beautifully lit up at night.​

Day 2 - Niagara Falls

Today you'll experience one of Canada's most iconic natural wonders as you head to the awesome Niagara Falls. Consisting of three waterfalls – Horseshoe Falls, American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls, they are a breath-taking sight, and how you view them is up to you. The thrill of flying over them on an optional helicopter ride is hard to beat. Another option is a cruise on the Niagara River, which will get you really close to the thundering waters.


We'll leave the falls and head to picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake, often described as one of the 'loveliest towns in Canada'. Situated at the mouth of the Niagara River, it's also renowned for its wines, in particular ice wine, which is made from grapes that have frozen naturally on the vine. After a winery tour, we'll clink glasses as we enjoy a tasting whilst taking in beautiful views of Lake Ontario.


Our next base is the exciting city of Toronto.​

Day 3 - Toronto

Canada's largest city is going to be a delight to explore on your morning tour. This sprawling multi-cultural metropolis offers so much. There are landmarks including the Parliament building, City Hall and the Roger's Centre Stadium, which is home to the Toronto Blue Jays baseball team. Then you've got beautiful beaches on Lake Ontario's shores, a zoo and the largest aquarium in the country. With a free afternoon, see how many you can fit in! For spectacular panoramic views, a trip to the top of the CN Tower in one of the glass-fronted lifts is highly recommended. You could also spend time taking a stroll through the Old Town with its great markets.​

Day 4 - Kingston

We arrive in Canada's first capital, Kingston, today. This is the gateway to the 1000 Islands of the St Lawrence River, and we're going to discover their beauty on a lunch cruise. We'll take in views of Kingston's UNESCO World Heritage Sites and sail past the Admiralty Islands. Some islands are large and home to opulent mansions, while others are tiny uninhabited outcrops. Later, we continue to Ottawa, our base for the next two-nights.​

Day 5 - Ottawa

Your day begins with a walking tour of Canada's modern-day capital city. Highlights will include Confederation Square, the National War Museum, Sparks Street, the grounds of Parliament Hill and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. By lunchtime we'll be in ByWard Market, so why not choose a restaurant before exploring further at your own pace. We highly recommend a visit to Rideau Hall, the official residence and workplace of Canada's Governor General.​

Day 6 - Ottawa

Highlights will include Confederation Square, the National War Museum, Sparks Street, the grounds of Parliament Hill and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

We highly recommend a visit to Rideau Hall, the official residence and workplace of Canada's Governor General.​

Day 7 - Québec City

We arrive in Quebec City today. Inside the fortified walls of this 400-year-old city you'll find an intact fortress - La Citadelle – and the Upper and Lower towns. On your tour you'll see the fairytale Château Frontenac, a hotel, which dominates the skyline, City Hall, the Latin Quarter, the Military Drill Hall and Old Quebec. Another highlight is the Plains of Abraham, the site of the 1759 Battle of Quebec between the French and British.


Time to yourself this afternoon gives you the chance to explore your own way.​

Day 8 - Québec

The choice is all yours today – you can explore the cobbled streets of Quebec City at your own pace, or you can take an optional trip to Baie-Sainte-Catherine. Located at the junction of the St Lawrence River and the Saquenay Fjord, this is a hot spot for whale-watching. The journey itself offers fantastic river views, and the chance to see whales in their natural habitat is something you'll never forget.​

Day 9 - Montreal

As we make our way to the island city of Montreal we'll be rewarded by wonderful views of mountains, rivers and lakes. En route we're going to make a stop at an authentic Quebecois Sugar Shack for lunch. Originally used for the production of maple syrup, what we'll enjoy here today is traditional Quebec cuisine.​

Day 10 - Montreal

An important port, Montreal is filled with character and boasts a remarkable history, as you'll find out on your tour today. Two main highlights are the underground pedestrian network, dubbed the 'underground city', and the Notre Dame Basilica. This huge Neo-Gothic church is a feast for the eyes with its gilded wooden interior, paintings, sculptures.​

Day 11 - Montreal to UK

You've time in Montreal this morning to explore a little more. Later, we're going to transfer you to the airport for your overnight flight back to the UK.​
