Your Itinerary

See in the gold-domed State House, the green acres of Boston Common and the cobbled streets of historic Beacon Hill. Visit colourful Quincy Market and browse its speciality stalls, or perhaps cross the Charles River to Harvard University, before returning to your hotel.

  • Journey, through the leafy countryside of New England, into Canada and to stylish Montreal, the world's second-largest French-speaking metropolis, where you'll spend the next two nights.

  • Today's included excursion takes you to Quebec City, a charming place that's sure to prove one of the highlights of your holiday. Join our local guide to explore the narrow, cobbled alleyways of endlessly enthralling Vieux-Quebec on an optional tour before we return to the Montreal in the evening.

  • Enjoy a short orientation tour of Montréal, before heading along the Maple Leaf Trail to romantic Ottawa, Canada’s beautiful administrative capital, with its Victorian houses and famous Rideau Canal.

  • The Canadian capital will be brought to life on a guided tour, this morning, before you journey to glittering Toronto. In this glittering city you'll find the sky-piercing CN Tower, ultramodern shopping malls and countless cafes and restaurants.

  • Explore Toronto under your own steam, or join our optional guided tour, which will bring to life the sights and sounds of the city.

    This afternoon, we'll journey around the shore of Lake Ontario to our next hotel, close to mighty Niagara Falls.

  • Spend the morning in awestruck wonder at the falls, which plunge over the famous precipices with a thunderous roar and a permanent misty spray. Take a helicopter flight for a bird’s eye view of the cascade, and perhaps enjoy lunch in a restaurant overlooking the Falls, before enjoying an evening in the resort.

  • Make the short journey across the bridge connecting Canada with the USA, passing the American Falls, today. Journey east and south through New York State and into Pennsylvania to spend the next two nights in New Jersey, just across the Hudson River from New York City.

  • Board the coach and head into the heart of New York, today. Explore on your own, or join our optional tour of the "city that never sleeps". Marvel at the famous sights, and take in the cityscape from the Top of the Rock - the 70th floor of the Rockerfeller Centre. After a hearty slice of the Big Apple, we'll return to New Jersey at the end of a wonderful day.

  • Heading south, this morning you'll visit the original US capital, Philadelphia. The Declaration of Independence was prepared and first read to the nation here in July 1776, after the tolling of the Liberty Bell. Let an included guided city tour bring the colourful story of America's birth to life before we continue to our final hotel, close to Washington DC.

  • Enjoy a full day in the nation's capital. See the domed Capitol building "on the Hill", the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial, the Smithsonian museums and - across the green swathe of the Ellipse, at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue - the White House itself on our optional guided tour. Across the Potomac lie Arlington National Cemetery and the hulking Pentagon.

Further Information

  • 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 North Korea, 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.

  • The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour.

  • Visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.
  • 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.
  • 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 the flight home. Soft drinks are complimentary, but some airlines will charge for alcoholic drinks.
  • 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. Smoking is prohibited, except in designated spaces both indoors and on deck, when on your cruise.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
