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.

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 Four

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 Five

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 Six

Today you'll head north once more, through beautiful up-state New York, for a last night close to Niagara Falls.

Day Seven

Spend the morning in awestruck wonder as you visit the incredible Niagara Falls, one of the world's greatest natural wonders. Take in the unforgettable views on an optional 10-minute helicopter ride, or perhaps enjoy lunch with us high above the Falls, before you return to Toronto Airport to join your flight home.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

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

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.


Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday, though regular stops will be made 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.


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.

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.

The two day extension from 2018 improves the schedule for what is a very reasonable extra cost. More time is needed in Gettysburg and this was hampered further by the accommodation being moved from this historical town to nearby Harrisburg, which was the poorest of all the hotel locations. However, tour guide Lianne & driver Howard saved the day by taking the party to Gettysburg for an excellent evening ghost tour. Both Lianne & Howard went the extra mile by taking the party into Manhattan in the Sunday evening to see Times Square at night which also include nighttime photographs of Manhattan, from New Jersey with a refreshment included. Both hotel locations in Niagara were excellent.

Holiday was great. Tours amazing. Just a few minor tweaks ie. coach toilet should be emptied at least once during trip and flight home should be a daytime not a nightime as no-one got any sleep at all due to noise.

Good "snap shot" of Canada /USA, my first visit to either. Tour manager & driver were very good . They went out of their way to show us as much as possible in this short trip.
Not very impressed with the airline TRANSAT ,breakfast on return journey was a piece of cake & drinks.

Birmingham Couple
This was our first coach holiday and our first transatlantic holiday. A really different experience for us both.

It would have been nice to have spent a little time in Gettysburg as we only passed through it and it looked a delightful town. Perhaps that could go on the itinerary in future?

The airline company Air Transat was very disappointing. We had read many poor reviews for them before we went and really hoped they were wrong. But sadly they were not. No neck pillows, sleep masks or blankets were provided. If you wanted these you had to pay for a full set. We even had to buy our own headphones to listen to the on board entertainment!

Sadly we had to queue for 2 hours at Customs in Canada on arrival, then had trouble finding our tour manager!

2 of the 3 hotels were good. Hasbrouck Heights in New Jersey was very disappointing! It seemed badly organised, with rude staff.

We have seen some wonderful places. Met some lovely people and have some very special memories.

Too much time on coach. 2 full days travel witout stopping anywhere. Stopped at supermarket for lunch on first day of travel. Then got to hotel 5ish and nowhere to go there were 2 hotels and one bar. Tracey back to Canada for last night we had over 2 hour stop in morning at oother mall. Both these days were too long and too boring.

London Couple
There was a lot of travelling on the holiday more than we expected, the tour guide was not very good, and we saw the coach driver throwing our cases about at one point. But to be fair to her and the tour guide they did make a stop at the Rocky statue in at our request. After reading the reviews about the Airline we were a bit worried but the airline was excellent would happily fly with them again, all the Hotels we stayed in were of a very standard, expect for the Crown plaza which was a bit tired, the trip as always with Newmarket was very good value for money.

Value for money. I found spending two days on travelling in the coach waste of time. I think we should have flown to an airport near Niagara in USA
