Expand All
Day 1: Arrive Toronto
Location: Toronto
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Chelsea Hotel, Toronto
Meals Included: No Meals

Welcome to the world’s most multiculturally diverse city, Toronto. Known to locals as the ‘Six’, Canada’s hipster enclave and largest city is all about unique neighbourhoods, fusion food, fascinating museums, vintage shopping and a healthy obsession with all things hockey. At the centre of it all is the city’s icon, the CN Tower, its 553 metre (1814 foot) spire dominating the landscape. After settling in to your hotel, you can wander around the district’s open-air markets which will no doubt get tummies rumbling. For dinner why not head to near-by Kensington Market, arguably the most diverse of all the city’s neighbourhoods where the idea of fusion food is taken to all new heights.

Day 2: Niagara Falls Excursion
Location: Toronto, Niagara Falls, Toronto
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Chelsea Hotel, Toronto
Meals Included: No Meals

Pack your sense of adventure this morning as you’re off to visit Niagara Falls! The biggest (and loudest) falls in North America, an incredible 750,000 gallons of water thunder into the gorge below every second, creating a natural phenomenon many have dubbed the 8th Wonder of the World. We’ll be getting you up close and personal on a cruise to Horseshoe Falls, allowing you to see both the Canadian and American sides. Remember that raincoat? Now’s the time to use it. Back in Toronto later, the rest of the day is yours to do as you please. Maybe head to Queen West to explore the neighbourhood’s impressive collection of art galleries and design studios, or take advantage of our CN Tower Optional Experience to test your head for heights.

Day 3: Toronto – Kingston – Ottawa
Location: Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Gatineau-Ottawa
Meals Included: No Meals

Leaving Toronto behind this morning, kick back and enjoy the gorgeous drive alongside Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes of North America, as you make your way to Kingston. Known as the 'Limestone City' thanks to its grand 19th century buildings built from its namesake limestone, it’s no wonder this gorgeous city was (briefly) the site of the Canadian capital. Get your bearings and then wake up your taste buds at Campbell's Orchard in Prince Edward County today for a farm tour and a cider tasting. This cider is made from a blend of apples picked from their trees and produced on-site, fermented using traditional methods.

Day 4: Ottawa Sightseeing And Free Time
Location: Ottawa
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Gatineau-Ottawa
Meals Included: No Meals

Start your morning in Ottawa with a sightseeing tour of the city's icons: Sussex Drive, Royal Canadian Mint, National Art Gallery, Supreme Court of Canada, National War Memorial, National Art Center; War Museum and National Archives and Library, the stunning Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica. After your orientation, enjoy some free time with your choice of Optional Experiences. Head to Byward Market’s vibrant indoor/outdoor open market for a quick bite or maybe experience culture with an authentic Pow-wow dance performance with music by First Nations members at Mādahòkì Farm. You could also explore Ottawa's neighbourhood food markets, discover local produce and dishes and meet area chefs and food artisans on a food walking tour.

Day 5: Ottawa - Québec City
Location: Ottawa, Quebec City
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Hotel Sepia
Meals Included: No Meals

Ready for some romance? We’ve got good news - timeless, elegant Québec City is up next. Exuding class, grandeur and a distinctly European feel, Québec City is almost a country within a country; 95% of the population speaks French, and around 75% are native Francophiles. Arriving here, we’ll be listening out for the collective sighs of appreciation as you set eyes on the narrow cobblestone streets and pretty parks for the first time. This afternoon, continue your Québec love affair with our Optional Experience that will get you out of town to admire the towering Montmorency Falls. Standing at 83 meters these falls are actually higher than Niagara Falls, forming the mouth of the Montmorency River.

Day 6: Québec City Sightseeing And Free Time
Location: Quebec City
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Hotel Sepia
Meals Included: No Meals

After no doubt grabbing a taste of France with a croissant and coffee, you’ll be heading out to join a Local Specialist this morning for a tour of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Old Town. Checking out sites including The Citadel, the historically significant Plains of Abraham, and the famous turrets of the Chateau Frontenac, the world’s most photographed hotel, prepare to fall even more in love with this city. This afternoon, why not continue your Québec adventure with our Optional Experience.

Day 7: Québec City – Montréal
Location: Quebec City, Montreal
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Sandman Hotel Montreal-Longueuil
Meals Included: Breakfast, Iconic

Get ready for Montreal sightseeing! We hope you're hungry this morning as for breakfast you'll be heading to the iconic Erabliere le Chemin du Roy, a traditional Cabane à Sucre (sugar shack) to learn how maple syrup, one of Canada's most famous exports, is made. You'll then make the short drive to Montreal, Canada's cultural capital where festivals, art, and a certain joie de vivre are all part of the daily make up. On arrival you'll meet up with a Local Specialist for a city tour of the UNESCO designated 'City of Design', admiring how old European style architecture sits naturally beside beautiful contemporary masterpieces in this popular destination city. This afternoon choose Montreal your way. North Montreal is full of hip neighborhoods, beautiful parks, hidden alleyways, and vibrant street art. This evening with free time to explore, you could head out for dinner with the group or take your pick of one of the cute terraced restaurants along the river.

Day 8: Depart Toronto
Location: Montreal, Toronto
Meals Included: No Meals

And just like that, you’ve experienced the very best of Eastern Canada. From Toronto’s trendy microbreweries to Québec City’s timeless romance, you’ll be finishing your trip this morning with happy memories, and no doubt a longing to see what the rest of Canada has in store. Today, you have the choice to return back to Toronto to fly out of Toronto International Airport or to continue on if you have booked on our extension cruise.

Best trip ever!

20-Jan-2023

Our trip was absolutely outstanding, organized and just plain fun. Agnes is a wonderful tour-guide, knowledgeable and we never had to worry about anything. And Frank, our bus driver, always had a smile and gave us the smoothest bus ride ever! And I've been on buses around the world... If we ever go again (hopefully), Costsaver would be my first and only choice and hopefully we will get "team" Agnes and Frank again.
