Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Toronto, meet your Tour Manager and travel around Lake Ontario's shore to your overnight hotel in Niagara Falls. Catch a brief glimpse of this extraordinary work of nature before enjoying the chance to rest and relax after the journey.

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 an overnight stay in Gettysburg, close to the site of the 1863 battle.

Day Three

Step back in time today as you pay a visit to, and your respects at, the Gettysburg National Military Park, which preserves the land upon which Unionist forces overcame the Confederates during one of the bloodiest episodes of the American Civil War. In addition to the battlefield site itself, with its monuments and memorials, including that at Gettysburg National Cemetery dedicated to Abraham Lincoln's famous Address, the Gettysburg Museum and Visitor Centre houses a collection of over 40,000 Civil War artefacts, and your visit will provide a deep insight into this momentous point of American history.

After a fascinating day, you'll journey on to spend two nights at Tyson's Corner, close to Washington DC.

Day Four

Today is spent in the 'most powerful city on Earth', Washington DC, the nation's capital and site of some of the most recognisable US landmarks. Our optional guided city tour will bring to life the giant domed Capitol building on 'the Hill' - home to the Senate and the House of Representatives - the vast Library of Congress and the Supreme Court. Stretching two miles from the Capitol to the Potomac River, the vast, manicured acres of the Mall boast the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Veterans' Memorial, the Smithsonian museums and - across the green swathe of the Ellipse, at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue - the White House itself. Across the Potomac lie Arlington National Cemetery and the hulking Pentagon.

After the tour, the rest of the day is free to explore at leisure, before you return to Tyson's Corner.

Day Five

This morning you'll travel north to the original US capital, historic Philadelphia. The Independence Hall National Park is home to the place where the Declaration of Independence was prepared and - after the tolling of the Liberty Bell - first read to the nation in July 1776. Enjoy our orientation tour, which will bring to life the colourful story of America's birth and the characters of the men, like Benjamin Franklin and George Washington, who wrought it.

After a fascinating day, you'll travel north to Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, for a two-night stay, and the chance to visit extraordinary New York City.

Day Six

Enjoy a full day in the incomparable Big Apple, perhaps the world's most famous metropolis, with its landmark skyscrapers, the green acres of Central Park, its famous Fifth Avenue stores, glittering Broadway, bustling Time Square, world-class museums and its irrepressible buzz, from Harlem in the north to Wall Street's Financial District, overlooking the Statue of Liberty and famous Ellis Island.

Take our wonderful optional guided city tour and make the very most of your day in this wonderful place, and spend a few hours in leisurely exploration of the 'city that never sleeps', before returning across the Hudson River for a second night in New Jersey.

Day Seven

Today you'll head north once more, 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 a final two nights close to Niagara Falls.

Day Eight

Spend a day in awestruck wonder as you visit the Falls, which plunge over the famous precipices in a cacophony of noise and a permanent misty spray heard and seen for miles around. Perhaps enjoy lunch in a restaurant overlooking the Falls, and stroll the green acres of the park that runs above the teeming Niagara River, before spending a last evening in the resort town.

Day Nine

Treat yourself to an optional helicopter flight over the Falls - the perfect way to bid them farewell - before you board the coach once more to journey on to glittering Toronto, with its waterfront developments, sky-piercing CN Tower, countless cafes and restaurants and its ultra-modern shopping malls. Spend a brief visit soaking up the atmosphere of the city, then make the short journey back to Toronto Airport and the return overnight flight.

Day 10

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

Further Information

Tipping

Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. Customary gratuity to a coach driver and tour manager is about $5 per person per day; in a taxi or a restaurant leave 15-20 per cent of the bill and in a bar leave a dollar or so per drink.

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.

*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.
