DAY 1 - Toronto to Ottawa


Your journey begins in Toronto BUT...we're off to Ottawa this morning for a glimpse into life in the nation's capital.


Welcome to Ottawa, the fun-loving capital. We'll explore our new surroundings on a city tour before enjoying some time to see Ottawa your way - whether it's a boat ride on the Rideau Canal or just strolling the streets, you’ll have plenty of time for your own adventure. Exercise seems a good idea in preparation for all that Poutine in Quebec....

DAY 2 - Ottawa to Quebec City


Au revoir Ottawa and bonjour Quebec City!

Quebec City

With its cobbled streets and ancient stone houses, Quebec City’s UNESCO World-Heritage-listed old town is an open-air museum. It’s time to get out and explore more of what this region has to offer - we’re talking vibrant art scenes, Parisian-style eateries and quaint river boardwalks. We'll immerse ourselves in the history of the city on a tour with a local guide, then once we've uncovered Quebec's hidden historical gems, it's time to fill up on a famous Canadian dish - Poutine! We’ll be sure to hit up a local eatery where it's well and truly the star of the show. 

DAY 3 - Quebec City

Quebec City

There's no better way to start the day than with fresh air and fantastic views, so let’s whisk ourselves away to Montmorency Falls this morning. If you're feeling adventurous, opt to soar across the falls on a zipline that will bring you even closer to this magnificent, natural phenomenon. Now that you're fully awake, we'll head back to Quebec where you'll have the afternoon to explore. You could check out the Chateau Frontenac - this red brick building built in 1983 is a landmark the city is definitely proud of. Or try munching on duck with maple syrup – a local delicacy. Oh and let’s not forget the awesome nightlife Quebec offers - it’s time to party French style!

DAY 4 - Quebec City to Montreal

Quebec City

Bid Quebec au revoir as we head towards the jazzy island city of Montreal. The French-infused city is home to arts, mouth watering food and the prettiest panoramic scenic views.


Together, we’ll take a spin around Montreal’s Old Port and quays where we’ll familiarise ourselves with a few signature sites. Next, discover the vibrant neighbourhood of Mile End on a food walking tour. If you’re after an adrenaline rush this afternoon, jump in a jet boat and get wet in the rapids of the St Lawrence River. Or perhaps just take a wander around trying out your best high school French.

DAY 5 - Montreal to Niagara Falls via Kingston


Still bopping along to the sax from the night before, we bid farewell Montreal.


We'll stop in Kingston for a spot of lunch and some beautiful lake views. 

Niagara Falls

Today we'll catch our first glimpse of the awe-inspiring Niagara Falls. Apparently waterfalls are full of negative ions that help increase mood, so we’ll get our serotonin fix at the world’s ninth-largest waterfall, with over a thousand tonnes of water cascading over the falls every second. Once we’re well and truly waterfall-ed out, we’ll head back for some rest before hitting the falls again tomorrow, this time from a different angle.

DAY 6 - Niagara Falls to Toronto

Niagara Falls

Experience Niagara Falls’ surging power first-hand on the Niagara Cruise boat by cruising right up to its thundering base. If you’re looking to see things from a different perspective, soar above the action in a chopper or just take in the scene from the safety of a viewing platform. And don’t worry – the ponchos are on us.


Welcome to Toronto, the largest city in Canada. Your Trip Manager will fill you in on the hot spots of this fabulous city soon after we arrive and will then give you the afternoon to yourselves where you can find your niche in this cosmopolitan melting pot. If you want to enjoy an evening of laughter, join us for a legendary Second City improv show where some of the funniest people on the planet have trodden the boards. Joan Rivers, Martin Short, Eugene Levy and Bill Murray are just a few of the big names to have started out here over the past 60 years. 

DAY 7 - Toronto


Another day to explore this epic city. Maybe catch a baseball game, Head to the of the CN Tower, visit Gallery 44 or Toronto Park for people watching. Tonight, feel the global vibe of this city's nightlife.

DAY 8 - Depart Toronto
