This trip is the perfect blend of city and nature. It has something for everyone and definitely crosses a few things off the bucket list!!
Make sure you take your passport to Niagara Falls so that you can cross over and have a look from the US side (although the Canadian side is MUCH better)
I made some amazing friends on this trip who I continue to keep in touch with and I definitely fell in love with this amazing country! I cannot wait to go back.

First part of the trip on the east coast (New York-Toronto) is all city slicking (walking around, history about the cities, pubs/clubs ect.). Pretty nice cities to see, by far my favourite was Québec City. Amazing architecture, lovely people and generally a nice city with lots of history to walk around with your new friends on the trip. (Also Montreal's Jet boat ride was pretty awesome, so do that!)
Unfortunately you'll have to leave most of your new friends on this trip behind to fly over to the west coast after Toronto. (We had six people who went to the west coast from our big group on the east). Where you start with a fresh tour group so its pretty nice already knowing some people before going into another group who don't know anyone yet!
This is where I personally really enjoyed the trip. Anyone who likes the outdoors, wildlife and nature will appreciate this. Lots more activities compared to the east: zip-lining, kayaking, white water rafting, mountain biking, walking, helicopter rides. All of which I recommend. Amazing scenery of the rockies, lakes and glaciers (no pictures do this justice). Lots of wildlife we seen most excitingly bears and moose. You round off all this excitement with a nice party/dinner cruise at Vancouver which is a good way to end the trip with your Contiki family.
Tour guides and coach drivers where amazing, knew there stuff.
So if you like cities the first part is definitely for you and nature second part. If you like both its the perfect trip.
Highly recommend this trip.
