Niagara Falls and Canada's eastern cities
OFFER ENDS 31st JULY*
Begin this unforgettable journey with a visit to the world's most powerful waterfall, the wondrous Niagara Falls, before taking to the road to spend time in waterfront Toronto and Canada's historic capital city, Ottawa. End your picturesque tour with a journey east into French Canada and intriguing Montreal and Quebec.
Fly to Toronto, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your hotel in Niagara Falls for a two-night stay.
The colourful, relaxed resort offers a host of diversions, and you'll find many restaurants, bars and shops in addition to the magnetic, mesmerising draw of one of the world's greatest natural wonders. Formed at the point where the Niagara River, which divides Canada and the USA, plunges over precipices in two spectacular cascades - the Horseshoe and the American - the Falls are a wonder to behold.
Enjoy another day in Niagara Falls. Perhaps embark the Hornblower Niagara cruise for a spray soaked passage close to the foot of the torrent or, for a bird's eye view of the magnificent Falls, join our optional buffet lunch at the Sheraton on the Falls hotel.
This morning join an exciting optional Helicopter Ride over Niagara Falls, before departing for the exquisite town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of Canada's oldest settlements and home to the renowned Shaw Festival. Continue on to Toronto, on the shore of Lake Ontario, for a two-night stay.
Join the optional Guided City Tour for an insight into one of North America's most cosmopolitan cities. Toronto is divided into several distinct 'neighbourhoods' - reflecting the city's extraordinary mix of ethnic origins. During your tour you'll see Chinatown, Greektown, Little India and Little Italy well as Victorian Cabbagetown and stylish Yorkville. Modern Toronto is best reflected in the stunning developments along the Lake Ontario Waterfront area, in its glitzy shopping malls and of course in the vertiginous CN Tower.
Enjoy a first evening in this wonderful lakefront city, with its 11 kilometres of interconnected, climate-controlled shopping and entertainment malls.
Enjoy a free day's rest and relaxation in Toronto, making the most of your time in the city. Those with a head for heights might head for the CN Tower, where the very brave can brave the stomach-churning EdgeWalk or watch others 'enjoying' it; stroll the waterfront promenade or laze on the city's beaches; head for one of a host of fine museums and galleries, visit historic Fort York, one of Canada's most important battlefield sites, take in the neo-Gothic wonders of the landmark Casa Noma 'castle', or 'shop till you drop' at the Eaton Centre.
This morning you'll head along the 'Maple Leaf Trail', travelling first along Lake Ontario's northern shore, past attractive Kingston, gateway to the 'Thousand Islands' and the St Lawrence River, to overnight in romantic Ottawa, Canada's beautiful administrative capital, with its Victorian houses, Grand Parliament buildings and famous Rideau Canal set against the leafy background of the Gatineau Hills.
After a relaxed morning and the chance to explore elegant Ottawa, re-board the coach to journey on into the great French-Canadian province of Quebec and to Montreal to enjoy a three-night stay in this undisputed centre of style and sophistication.
Get to know this engaging city on this morning's optional Guided Tour, which will take in the pretty Vieux Port area and the lively Plateau Mont Royal. Montreal boasts cutting edge modernity as well as French style and flair, and is a cosmopolitan melange of high culture, high fashion and high tech, its waterfront rivalling Vancouver's for glass and steel architectural marvels, contrasting with the bohemian groove of trendy Plateau Mont Royal and the cobblestones of Vieux Montreal.
This evening, step back in time, dining in belle epoque style on our optional Maple Delights dinner excursion.
Today brings a fitting finale to the Maple Leaf Trail, with a last included excursion, to historic Quebec City, North America's only walled settlement, forever associated with the exploits of General Woolf. On arrival enjoy an optional guided city tour, before you are free to explore the narrow, cobbled alleyways of the lower Basse Ville and its upper Haute counterpart, which together form the endlessly enthralling, UNESCO-listed Vieux-Quebec, dominated by the monumental Citadelle and the Chateau Frontenac hotel.
At the end of a wonderful day you'll return to Montreal to enjoy your last evening in the city.
Today you'll make the scenic journey back into Ontario, travelling around the lake to Toronto Airport for your return overnight flight to the UK.
Arrive back in the UK, at the end of a truly unforgettable holiday.
