Day 12

Our optional guided Boston city tour will show you where America's Founding Fathers once strolled. Explore famous Quincy Market, the Harbourside or the wonderful New England Aquarium, or cross the Charles River to the home of Harvard University. You'll find many opportunities to enjoy dinner here - perhaps sampling the local clam chowder, or a delicious New England lobster.

Day 13

Today, you'll have the chance to follow in the Pilgrim Fathers' footsteps at Plymouth, in the historic streets of 'America's Hometown'.

Day 14

A full day on the Cape includes a memorable 'whale-watch' cruise from Hyannisport.

Spend your final evening here enjoying the hotel, or dining out.

New England and Canada Fall Colours Touring Hotels 2016 

The hotels used on our tours will meet the standard of a good, three-star European hotel. Rooms will have private bathrooms, telephones and TV. The vast majority will also have tea- and coffee-making facilities. There will always be a bar or restaurant on site or nearby.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour.

Passports and visas

When travelling to the USA, British citizens require passports with an integrated chip (shown on the front by a small rectangular symbol beneath the word PASSPORT), valid beyond the return date from the USA. Visas are not normally required for entry, but visitors must apply for an ESTA online with US Immigration at least 72 hours before departure at . The current charge is $14 for British Citizens. British subjects and anyone who has a criminal record or has ever been arrested should consult the US Embassy as a visa may be required. Note too that if you have visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia or Yemen since March 2011, or have dual nationality with any of these countries, you do require a US visa and cannot travel on the Visa Waiver Program. Please note an ETA is not required for Canada.

Border crossing

Please note there is a US$6 per person charge to cross the border from Canada to the USA. This is payable in cash at the border crossing and is not included in the tour price.


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 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.

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.)

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.

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.

Departure dates and fall colours

This tour covers a large distance, from New York and as far north as Ontario and Quebec in Canada, and so Fall foliage will naturally vary. On early departures, leaves are more likely to have turned in the northern areas covered, whereas on later dates it is the more southern areas that will be most notable, with leaf-fall having already occurred further north.

*Low deposit of £50 applies to new bookings made between 1st and 30th September 2016 (inclusive) only. This offer only applies to all 2016 to 2018 air breaks excluding the American Queen - Mississippi River Cruise; Deep South Rhythms, New Orleans and Caribbean Cruise; Five-Star Alaska Cruise and the Canadian Rockies; Highlights of China and Yangtze Cruise; Any world cruises or sectors aboard Magellan that include flights; Cruises aboard Norwegian Star that include flights; Cruises aboard Mendula that include flights; Cruises aboard Astoria that include flights; Cruises aboard Olympia that include flights; Cruises aboard Sound of Music that include flights and Daniel O'Donnell in Dublin by Air.

Holiday was great, saw all we expected. Pity the guide had not been to Canada before. Would have helped if she could have given more information on the places we were visiting and maybe a little more info about the following days itinerary in advance so you can plan your meal breaks. Duran the driver made the tour.

Bordon Couple
Overall a great holiday. The biggest disappointment was that we weren't sat together on the plane even though we booked the holiday over a year beforehand. I know Newmarket says that's the fault of the airline, the airline said it was down to Newmarket not
prebooking and I believe that to be the truth. It was a shame as it ruined our trip of a lifetime. It's also put us off going on a long haul holiday with Newmarket again, we'd rather book our own flights and know that we will be sat together.

Wick, Scotland Couple
Because we left from Glasgow, at Glasgow airport we had to explain , on booking in, that we wanted our luggage to go straight through to JFK. This was easily done. However on the way back this arrangement caused great confusion at JFK - although it was eventually done.

The tour manager was not up to the usual high standard of previous tour managers. She gave no information about the history/places of interest, etc. The coach driver, on the other hand, gave out lots of information and make a special effort to take us around the sights before letting us 'explore' for ourselves.

The tour itself was magnificent - helped by the good weather.

A very enjoyable holiday, but do not go unless you are able to always be on the move. Fantastic Fall and scenery.

Sleaford Couple
Highly memorable and enjoyable. Helicopter ride above Niagara Falls was a highlight, as was the morning in Manhattan. Our main coach driver was extremely professional and committed to us and the variety of the holiday (pace, urban/rural, scenery etc) was highly enjoyable. It was our first holiday of this kind and we are left with many wonderful memories.

Aberdeen Couple
Tour guide was not well organised at beginning . New York hotel was very poorly located. Buses at New York and Toronto were very late in arriving. Hotel at Jay Peak was an annexe and too far from main complex. Trying to cram too much into the time allocated led to long journeys on bus esp at end of holiday. Montreal was not very interesting for two days and more time in Quebec would have been better. two days in Niagara Falls was wasteful but Niagara on the lake was super and more time there would have been better
Bus driver was excellent.
