Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Toronto and transfer to your first hotel in Niagara Falls for a two-night stay. Enjoy your first glimpse of one of the world's greatest natural wonders. The colourful, relaxed resort that has grown up next to the Falls offers a host of diversions, and you'll find many restaurants, bars and shops in addition to the magnetic, mesmerising draw of the roaring waters.

Day Two

Spend an unforgettable day in Niagara Falls. Board the Hornblower Niagara cruise (payable locally) for a spray-soaked passage close to the foot of the torrent, and perhaps join us for lunch with a view at the Sheraton on the Falls Penthouse Fallsview Dining Room. Later, explore the attractions of Clifton Hill or stroll up to the Fallsview area, with its impressive casino.

Day Three

This morning, enjoy the stunning views on an optional 10-minute helicopter ride. Afterwards, we'll travel the short distance to Toronto, on the shores of Lake Ontario, via the exquisite town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of Canada's oldest settlements and home to the renowned Shaw Festival Theatre. In the afternoon, join our optional guided tour for an insight into Canada's largest city. Highlights of the tour include Chinatown, Victorian Cabbagetown and stylish Yorkville.

This evening, step outside to explore, or remain in the climate-controlled comfort of the city's 11-kilometre PATH interconnected shopping and entertainment system.

Day Four

This morning we follow the 'Maple Leaf Trail' to romantic Ottawa, Canada's beautiful administrative capital, with its Victorian houses and famous Rideau Canal, set against the leafy background of the Gatineau Hills. After a chance to explore, you'll continue to the great French Canadian province of Quebec, and to Montreal, Canada's second city. Enjoy a three-night stay in this, the country's undisputed centre of style and sophistication.

Day Five

Get to know Montreal on our optional guided city tour, which will take in the Vieux Port area and the lively Plateau Mont Royal, with its countless shops, bars and restaurants. This evening, step back in time and dine in the style of a bygone century by joining our optional Maple Delights dinner excursion in Old Montreal.

Day Six

Visit charming, historic Quebec City, one of Canada's oldest settlements, with its stunning Chateau Frontenac, ancient ramparts and UNESCO-listed centre, overlooking the mighty St Lawrence River. Discover this wonderful city on an optional tour, before returning to Montreal to spend a final evening soaking up the atmosphere.

Day Seven

Journey back to Ontario, making your way to Toronto Airport for your overnight flight home.

Day Eight

Arrive back home, after an overnight flight.

Toronto and Montreal Touring Hotels ★★★★

To get the very best out of Canada's stunning cities, a well-located base is essential. Using our extensive knowledge of Canada, we have selected centrally located hotels for you to enjoy, all of which will be of at least European four-star standard.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 90 minutes.

Passports and visas

British citizens require machine-readable passports when travelling to Canada. Visas are not normally required for entry, but for travel from 15th March 2016 visitors to Canada must apply for an eTA online with Canadian Immigration at least 72 hours before departure at www.canada.ca/eta . The current charge is seven Canadian dollars for British Citizens. British subjects, and anyone who has a criminal record or has ever been arrested, should consult the Canadian Embassy as a visa may be required.

Tipping

Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. Customary gratuity to a coach driver or tour manager is about $5 per person per day; in a taxi or a restaurant leave 12-15 per cent of the bill and, in the bar, leave a dollar or so per drink.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday; regular stops will be made though for your comfort en route. The majority of hotels in North America are non-smoking throughout including in all bedrooms. In general smoking outside is acceptable, but do look out for signs prohibiting this close to public entrances or bus stops.

On your flight

All outbound flights depart and arrive on the same day. All return flights leave in the evening and land in the UK the next day. On-board meals will usually include lunch and a snack on outward flights, and dinner and breakfast on flight home. Soft drinks are complimentary, but some airlines will charge for alcoholic drinks.

Luggage allowance

You are permitted to take one suitcase per person on the aircraft, which should not exceed 23kg.

Helicopter flights

Sightseeing flights by helicopter are weight controlled and balanced. Please contact us if you wish to book a helicopter flight and your bodyweight exceeds 250lb. (In such cases, a seat may have to be left empty, and some companies may charge a premium.)

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

Changes to your hotels

Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

Hotel rooms

Standard hotel rooms in North America will contain one or two double- or queen-sized beds, and it is not possible to add extra beds to the room. Parties consisting of more than two travellers, but who have only booked one room, will be expected to make use of the two beds provided. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Really enjoyed holiday for most parts. However with the long distances covered by coach I felt it we were short of time in the major cities especially Toronto.

I feel the whole package could be improved if it was extended by a couple of days based in Toronto.

Unacceptable 3 hour wait after arriving in Toronto airport as another flight bringing in people in our coach party had been delayed - another coach should have been organised. Apart from initially being told this no further updates were provided and we were all left hanging about wondering what was going on. Tour of Toronto did not include visit to Waterfront Area and CN Tower as it was supposed to - this was the main reason we booked this excursion. The Maple Delights in Old Montreal was a disaster - a complete shambles and should be removed from the excursions, however, the dinner afterwards was lovely. We felt (and we weren't the only ones) that the whole tour was a bit full on although it did cover a lot of places. The day in Quebec started very early and we didn't get back to Hotel until 7.30 pm and then we had to find somewhere to have dinner - we felt leaving Quebec an hour earlier would have been a better option. Eric, thelocal tour guide in Quebec, was excellent. Gloria, our Tour Manager, put a lot of effort into entertaining us and we all apprknow coated her funny stories. She was very knowledgable although a little abrupt and offhand sometimes when asked a question. Winston the coach driver was wonderful - definitely a 10 out of 10. Hotels were all good quality with the Marriott Chateau Champlain in Montreal the best of the three. Good tour as you see lots of places but very tiring.

The holiday was very good and met expectations but the flight comfort and quality of in flight meals were very disapointing and way below standards for a 7 hour transatlantic flight.

Excellent holiday. Did feel sometimes we could have had a little more information on where to go on our own. Th airline was a very big let down. Flight staff were miserable and food dire. Flight going was very hot on aircraft, did complain, but nothing done to remedy the problem.
