Itinerary

Day One

Fly to New York, and upon arrival, meet your Tour Manager and board the coach for the transfer to New Jersey and the hotel for a two-night stay. Rest and relax after the journey.

Day Two

Board the coach and head into the heart of New York, downtown Manhattan. Explore on your own, or more likely join the optional tour of the City that Never Sleeps, in the company of our guide. Marvel at the famous sights - the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings, bustling Times Square, the green acres of Central Park, the southern tip of Wall Street and the waterfront district, looking out towards the Statue of Liberty. The tour includes a visit to the breathtaking Top of the Rock at the towering Rockefeller Center, from where the whole of Manhattan and beyond can be viewed from the 70th-floor viewing platform.

Day Three

Today you'll head north, boarding the coach for the scenic journey through beautiful rural Upper New York State, its forested landscape dotted with quintessential New England towns and villages, to spend two nights in Niagara Falls. Enjoy your first evening in this colourful, bustling resort 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 and delightful town of Niagara-on-the- Lake, with its pretty houses and world-famous Shaw Theatre, one of America's most celebrated playhouses. Later, continue to the sparkling city of Toronto and explore its glittering waterfront, sky piercing CN Tower and its colourful historic neighbourhoods including Chinatown, Greektown and Little Italy on an optional guided city tour. Indulge in some shopping in the city's ultramodern malls, or in the evening make the most of the city's cosmopolitan dining options, or perhaps take in a show - Toronto is Canada's capital of live entertainment and performance art, with many world-class productions gracing the city's stages.

Day Six

Today you'll board the coach to head along the colourful Maple Leaf Trail, travelling east to romantic Ottawa, Canada's administrative capital. Explore the beautiful Canadian capital with its Victorian houses, grand Parliament Buildings and the famous Rideau Canal, which is set against the leafy background of the Gatineau Hills. Later, continue on into the great French Canadian province of Quebec and into Montreal, the world's second-largest French speaking metropolis, for a two-night stay. Soak up the atmosphere of one of Canada's epicentres of style and sophistication, perhaps dining in the Vieux Port District.

Day Seven

Today's included excursion is to charming, historic Quebec City, North America's only walled city. Enjoy an optional, fascinating city tour in the company of a local guide upon arrival and explore the narrow, cobbled alleyways of the lower Basse Ville and its upper Haute counterpart, which together form the endlessly enthralling Vieux-Quebec, dominated by the monumental Citadelle and the Chateau Frontenac hotel. Exuding charm from its every pore, with countless monuments, churches and 16th and 17th-century buildings, Quebec City is sure to prove one of the highlights of the entire holiday. Return to Montreal for a second evening, perhaps in lively Plateau Mont Royal.

Day Eight

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

Day Nine

A truly memorable day awaits, as you journey through stunning scenery, via Franconia Notch and the spectacular fall foliage of the Kancamagus Highway through the White Mountains. Pass Mount Washington, New England's highest point, and continue to the beautiful mountain village of Bethel in Maine, nestled at the foot of appropriately named Paradise Hill.

Day 10

Today brings opportunities to enjoy the delights of Bethel, although many will wish to join the optional excursion to Mount Washington, journeying aboard the historic Cog Railway - the only one east of the Rockies - to the summit of New England's highest peak, at the heart of the scenic White Mountains region. Having returned to Bethel, enjoy an evening guided drive in search of moose.

Day 11

Journey further into the 'Great State of Maine', calling at the prosperous coastal city of Portland, with its waterfront wharves and fine seafood restaurants. Visit delightful beach-resort Ogunquit and the exclusive Bush Family retreat of Kennebunkport, before crossing into Massachusetts to spend three nights in seafront Hull, close to elegant Boston.

Day 12

Enjoy a full day in America's most European city, perhaps joining the fascinating optional guided tour to explore the famous Freedom Trail through its compact heart, taking in the gold-domed State House and the Old North Church, the green acres of Boston Common and the cobbled streets of historic Beacon Hill. Visit colourful Quincy Market with its speciality stalls, many of which sell delicious cuisine from around the world. Perhaps try a dish of clam chowder or delicious New England lobster before a stroll around the harbourside, or cross the Charles River to famous Cambridge, home to Harvard University. Return back to Hull for your second overnight stay.

Day 13

Journey towards the South Shore and enjoy the chance to follow in the footsteps of the Pilgrim Fathers at Plymouth, as you stroll around the historic streets of 'America's Hometown' and 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 visit Hyannis, still a home to the Kennedy clan. Enjoy your final night in Hull.

Day 14

Return to New York, via the elegant sophistication of Newport, Rhode Island, the East Coast's premier resort town and famous home to some opulent weekend cottages of America's wealthiest families. Journey to the airport, for the return overnight flight.

Day 15

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

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.

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.

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 £49 per person applies to new bookings made between 21st June and 31st July 2017 (inclusive) only. This offer only applies to selected air-inclusive holidays. This offer is subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time.

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.

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.

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.
