Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Toronto, on the shore of Lake Ontario, and catch a glimpse of the mighty Niagara Falls as you transfer to your hotel.

Day Two

Board the coach this morning for the journey across the border into the US, heading across scenic New York State and into 'Keystone State' Pennsylvania. Continue south for a two-night stay in Gettysburg, site of the 1863 battle where Unionist forces overcame the Confederates during one of the bloodiest episodes of the American Civil War.

Day Three

This morning you will visit the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center, usually referred to as The Gateway to the Battlefield. The museum's most impressive exhibit is the enormous Gettysburg cyclorama - a life-size painting that gives a 360-degree view of Pickett's famous charge. Later, continue to Tysons, close to Washington DC, for a two-night stay.

Day Four

Visit the 'most powerful city on Earth', Washington DC - US capital and site of some of the nation's most recognisable landmarks. Our optional guided city tour will introduce the sights of this centre of power and politics - Capitol Hill, the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial and, at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, The White House.

Day Five

Learn about the colourful history of the birth of the United States as we take a tour of Philadelphia. Here, in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was prepared and, after the tolling of the Liberty Bell, first read to the nation.

After our guided tour we'll travel to Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, for a two-night stay.

Day Six

Enjoy an unforgettable day as you visit Manhattan, the heart of the incomparable Big Apple. Shop, take in the world-famous sights, or join our wonderful optional excursions, which include a guided city tour, during which Central Park, Fifth Avenue and the Empire State Building will be thrillingly revealed.

Day Seven

Today you'll head north once more, through beautiful up-state New York and back into Canada, for a two night stay in Niagara Falls.

Day Eight

Spend today awestruck as you explore the incredible Niagara Falls, one of the world's greatest natural wonders. Take a trip on the famous Hornblower or perhaps enjoy lunch and panoramic views with us from high above the Falls at the Sheraton on the Falls Penthouse Fallsview Dining Room.

Day Nine

Take in more unforgettable views of the Falls on an optional 10-minute helicopter ride this morning, before heading north to the sparkling city of Toronto. Once in the city you'll be free to explore at your own pace, perhaps take in its glittering waterfront, its sky-piercing CN Tower or its contrasting neighbourhoods, including Chinatown and Little Italy.

Later, return to Toronto Airport to check in for your evening flight home.

Day 10

Arrive back in the UK, after an overnight flight.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour and 30 minutes.

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 for 90 days after the return date from the tour. Visitors to Canada must apply for an eTA (Electronic Travel Authority) with Canada Immigration before departure at www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/eta.asp The current charge is seven Canadian dollars for British Citizens, and the eTA is valid for unlimited visits to Canada over a five year period. Visas are not normally required for entry in to the US by land from Canada, although a charge of 6USD is made when crossing the border. British subjects, and anyone who has a criminal record or has ever been arrested, should consult the US and Canadian Embassies as a visa may be required. Note too that if you have visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan or 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 Programme.

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.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

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.

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.

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.

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.
