Itinerary

Day One

Fly across the Atlantic to New York. Upon arrival, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your hotel for a two-night stay, and to rest and relax after your journey.

Day Two

Today you'll head into the heart of New York. Explore on your own, or join our optional guided tour, which ends with a visit to the Top of the Rock for phenomenal views from the towering Rockefeller Center. Later today we'll return to New Jersey for a further night.

Day Three

Today you'll head north, boarding the coach for the scenic journey through beautiful, rural Upper New York State to spend two nights close to Niagara Falls. Enjoy your first evening in the colourful, bustling resort city that has grown up around the cascades, and which draws visitors from across the globe.

Day Four

Enjoy a full day in Niagara, perhaps board the Hornblower Niagara Cruise for a spray-soaked passage close to the foot of the torrent. Alternatively, for a bird's eye view of the magnificent Falls, take an optional helicopter ride above the tumult or enjoy lunch from the viewpoint of an overlooking restaurant.

Day Five

This morning you'll make the short journey to the historic delightful town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, with its pretty houses and world-famous Shaw Theatre (one of America's most celebrated playhouses). After time to explore, we'll continue to the sparkling city of Toronto where you'll be able to see its glittering waterfront, sky-piercing CN Tower and its colourful contrasting neighbourhoods, including Chinatown and Little Italy, on an optional guided tour.

Day Six

Today, you'll board the coach to head along the 'Maple Leaf Trail', travelling north along Lake Ontario to the attractive university city of Kingston, gateway to the beautiful 'Thousand Islands' that dot the waters of the Upper St Lawrence. From there, we'll continue along the colourful 'Maple Leaf Trail' to romantic Ottawa, Canada's administrative capital.

Day Seven

Explore the beautiful Canadian capital on today's included orientation tour, which will take in Ottawa's Victorian houses, grand Parliament Buildings and the famous Rideau Canal. Later, we'll continue into the great French Canadian province of Quebec, heading to Montreal, the stylish Olympic city, for a two-night stay.

Day Eight

Today's included excursion takes us to charming, historic Quebec City - one of Canada's oldest and most picturesque settlements. See the stunning Chateau Frontenac, ancient ramparts and UNESCO-listed centre on a fascinating, optional guided city tour, before we return to Montreal.

Day Nine

After a morning spent exploring Montreal's historic Vieux Port area, board our coach once more for the scenic journey back across the US border into leafy Vermont, to spend the night in the exquisite surroundings of the Jay Peak mountain resort.

Day 10

Travel through stunning scenery via the Franconia Notch and the spectacular 'fall foliage' of the Kancamagus Highway. On this memorable day, we'll pass through the White Mountains, and head to the beautiful mountain village of Bethel for an overnight stay. This evening enjoy a guided drive in search of moose.

Day 11

Enter the 'Great State of Maine', and call at prosperous Portland, with its waterfront wharves and fine seafood restaurants, then visit delightful beachside Ogunquit and exclusive Kennebunkport before crossing into Massachusetts to spend two nights in elegant Boston, the historic capital of New England.

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'. You'll visit the fascinating Plimoth Plantation, where the early days of the European settlers are re-enacted. You'll then travel on to Cape Cod and your hotel for the last two nights.

Day 14

A full day on the Cape includes a memorable 'whale-watch' cruise from Hyannisport. Alongside naturalists, you'll head out for an unforgettable encounter, to see humpback and Minke whales, bluefin tuna and dolphins, before your return to port this afternoon. Spend your final evening here enjoying the hotel, or dining out.

Day 15

Return to New York via the elegant sophistication of Newport, Rhode Island. The East Coast's premier resort town is famously home to some of America's wealthiest families and their opulent weekend 'cottages'. You'll then transfer to the airport for your overnight return flight to the UK.

Day 16

Arrive back in the UK at the end of a wonderful holiday.

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 www.cbp.gov/esta . 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.

Tipping

Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. The customary gratuity for a coach driver or Tour Manager is about $5 per person per day. It is normal to tip 15-20 per cent of the bill for a taxi or in a restaurant, and to leave a dollar or so per drink in a bar. Gratuities on board Holland America Line ships are not included in your holiday price, and are automatically charged at a cost of $11.50 per person per day.

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.

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.

Hampshire Couple
A very much "on the go" holiday giving travellers "tasters" of two countries and numerous states and cities in a short space of time, including visiting all the key "must see" places.

The holiday delivered all of the itinerary as advertised.
Some guests did not appciate the distances between hotels with resultant early starts.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed all aspects including the site seeing and accommodation.

RODNEY

Bournemouth Couple
Excellent itinerary, good hotels generally. The optional excursions and the included ones were very good.
The tour guide was very pleasant and approachable, however, did not seem very well prepared.
We had problems with the coach as our coach and driver was given to another tour group when theirs broke down. This disrupted our tour immensely and it was unsatisfactory since many passengers were unhappy.
Generally we had a enjoyable holiday.

MARTIN

London Couple
I feel that the coach service let the tour guide down. There were breakdowns which annoyed some of the group. None of this was the tour guide's fault, but she bore the brunt of the group's anger, some of which was unjustified. I also think that the group was too big (51 people) and this proved problematic. I would not want to give the impression that the trip was bad - in fact it was very enjoyable, but it did not go smoothly, I'm afraid.

LINDA

Basingstoke Couple
Flights and accommodation absolutely fine. Coach with a second door would have been better.
Tour manager was not knowledgeable, could not cope with the simplest of enquiries and spoiled the holiday.
Absolutely worst decision to give our coach and driver to another tour whose coach had broken down and then the replacement coach for our tour did not arrive and a whole day was wasted. So not only was one tour party upset, you succeeded in annoying two coach parties.

ROSEMARY

Huddersfield Single traveller
A quick tour of a lot of different places with just a little time in each.
Lovely hotels on the whole. Interesting included excursions, such as a quick look around Ottawa by coach, the Plimouth Plantation, Plymouth Rock and a visit to a covered bridge and waterfalls in Maine. The opportunity to add optional tours or do your own thing in New York, Niagara, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec, Boston. I found these showed me areas of the cities I wouldn't have seen otherwise which sometimes was good and sometimes I found a waste of time - with hindsight, I'd have done my own thing in most places. Hotels were good or very good with usually plenty of places nearby to eat, apart from when we stayed in rural areas. There were 52 in the party and places were rotated round the coach for fairness in views from it. Our guide got us safely around, didn't lose anyone and made sure we were fed and watered.
We travelled huge distances on motorways in Canada which were quite frankly boring, so be prepared for that, or opt for New England on its own. More time on the tour is spent visiting cities than rural or coastal areas so this is also something to consider when making your choice of Fall holiday tour.

Justine

Kent Couple
We were disappointed with the mistakes made by the tour guide and coach driver. Our coach was taken by another tour party which resulted in our group wasting half a day waiting for a replacement. Our excursion to Quebec had to take place the next day having travelled hours to get half the way there. This resulted in us getting to the hotel very late especially as we had to swap coaches in a service station in the dark and rain. All our luggage was transferred on to another coach, we then drove a very short distance to our hotel. Why we couldn't have just carried on to our hotel and met the new coach there was beyond us. We had a number of replacement coaches, one resulted in us being delayed because the door wouldn't shut properly, the last one had a non functional toilet, holes in the seats, a broken seat and was generally very unclean. On the way to the airport a loud bang was heard from under the coach followed by a continual grinding sound and a burning smell. Regardless of this the coach driver continued to drive at a high speed, causing concern for the passengers. Two of the hotels we stayed in were disgusting, smelt and were generally in need of a refurbishment.
