Eastern Journeys Escorted Tour

Day 1

TORONTO

Arrive in Toronto, one of the most spectacular cities in the world! Make your way independently to your downtown hotel, as you get the feeling ‘this is going to be great!’. After you check in your tour director will give you all the essential information you will need for your trip. Now you are free to head out and soak up all Toronto has to offer, make the most of this city with its many attractions and vibrant atmosphere. Some of the main highlights of Toronto include taking a tour to the top of the now iconic CN Tower, a visit to Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada and spend a few hours in the Distillery District; where the best shopping, restaurants and bars of this majestic city live! You will be staying for two nights in Toronto at the Courtyard by Marriott Toronto.
Day 2

NIAGARA FALLS

Wake up to the sound of the bustling city, head down and have breakfast with your travelling companions, preparing yourself for a sightseeing extravaganza. You will be brought to see the Parliament Buildings, Chinatown, street views of the CN Tower and Toronto’s cosmopolitan waterfront to name a few. Heading out for the famous Niagara Peninsula you will get to see some quaint towns and villages in the countryside along with photo opportunities of the expanse Lake Ontario before arriving at the ultimate attraction that is Niagara Falls. While here we recommend you embrace the sheer magnitude of these falls, with optional activities including the Hornblower Cruise taking you below the falls or a mesmerising helicopter ride above the falls where the sound is described as constant thunder! Both options giving you the best Kodak moments money can buy! You will then head back to Toronto for your second night at the Courtyard by Marriott Toronto. A tasty buffet breakfast is included in your stay.
Day 3

OTTAWA

Having immersed yourself in the friendly metropolis that is Toronto, it is time to move on, heading East towards Ottawa (Capital city of Canada). As you head out of the city limits the breath-taking views of the Canadian countryside and the Rideau Waterway begin to take over and win your heart. On arrival in Ottawa, you will be brought on a sightseeing tour that incorporates government buildings, the infamous Parliament Hill and the pretty Rideau Canal. Ottawa is a truly picturesque and welcoming city, where you can visit the beautiful public gardens, City Hall and the Byward Market. Night three will be spent overnight in Ottawa at the Travelodge Ottawa Hotel. You will have a buffet breakfast included.
Day 4

QUEBEC CITY

On the halfway mark you will be leaving Ottawa in the morning and following the Ottawa River to the French-speaking province of Quebec. The Chemin du Roy Highway follows the foothills of the spectacular Laurentian Mountain Range with quirky Quebecois shrines and villages dotted along the journey. As you arrive into Quebec City you will immediately fall in love with the olde-world charm it has to offer. The tour takes you inside the walls of the old city and you can get some photos of the ornate gates, lower town, Battlefield Park and the imposing Citadelle of Quebec! Get out and about for the evening and enjoy Quebec’s cultural streets, lined with boutiques and bistros. In Quebec City you will be staying at the Hotel Clarion Quebec with a continental breakfast included.
Day 5

QUEBEC CITY

Having experienced yesterday’s tour and settled into this picturesque city you can plan a day to suit your own interests. We recommend our optional full day trip to Tadoussac one of the first French trading posts, taking a memorable trip whale watching on the St. Lawrence River. On return from three hours of whale watching you will be brought to the mesmerising Montmorency Falls (boasting the stat that it is 30 metres taller than the Niagara Falls) Take the rest of the day to explore this unique French-Canadian city with its narrow streets and unique boutiques. Night five will be spent in Quebec City at the modern Hotel Clarion Quebec with a tasty continental breakfast included.
Day 6

Having absorbed all there is to absorb from the idyllic Quebec City, you will be taken on a journey that follows the route of Canada’s earliest settlers towards Montreal. On arrival to this vibrant island city you will be brought on a city sightseeing tour where you will get to appreciate the combination of both modernism and historic styles. Check out the iconic Olympic Complex, world renowned McGill University, Mount Royal and the shopping district. There is an optional evening trip around the city that brings you to some of the most vibrant areas of the city and wraps up in a traditional restaurant for dinner, ‘Montreal by Night’. Stay overnight in Montreal at the Hotel Lord Berri and feast on the continental breakfast included.
