After check-in, unpack your bags and unwind in your guestroom, or feel free to independently explore the city.

You will be wowed by the unstoppable flow of rushing water, which surges over the arcing fault in the riverbed with thunderous force. See great plumes of icy mist rise for hundreds of meters as the waters collide, like an ethereal veil concealing the vast rift behind the torrent.  This will be followed by a journey behind the falls. Later, you will experience the Niagara’s formation in a 3D movie and continue for a walk along the White-Water Walk. After such a memorable day, you can explore the local nightlife independently or head back to your hotel and unwind.

Day 3 – Toronto:  Start the day with a scrumptious breakfast, before leaving for Toronto. On route, you will make a brief stop to visit some of the region’s famous vineyards before arriving in Toronto. After checking into your hotel, you can unwind inside your guestroom or explore the city by yourself. You will be impressed by Toronto, which is the most multi-culturally diverse city on the planet with over 140 languages spoken. Some of the world’s finest restaurants are found here, alongside vibrant bars, clubs and eclectic festivals.

Day 4 – City tour of Toronto: Wear comfortable shoes today as you set off on a city tour of Toronto. One of the largest cities in Canada and the capital of Ontario, Toronto is home to many historic monuments. Today, you will start your day by visiting the iconic CN tower, which is a marvel of 1970s engineering. It looks like a giant concrete hypodermic needle. Its main function is as a communications tower. You can ride the glass elevators up the once-highest freestanding structure in the world, which stands at 553-metres. Next, you will explore the Casa Loma Castle, the Royal Ontario Museum and the Ripley’s Aquarium. Here you will be wowed by the 16,000 marine animals, including one of the world’s most extensive jellyfish exhibits, giant lobsters, stingray and bamboo shark touch pools. There are also live dive shows to entertain visitors throughout the day. Finally, you will be driven past the historic harbour front of the city – giving you a glimpse of the Toronto skyline.

You will also enjoy the beauty of the Botanical Gardens & Insectarium, as well as trips to St Helen’s Island, Casino and the Molson Centre.  The highlight of today will no doubt be Notre Dame Basilica. The famous landmark is full of carved wood, paintings, gilded sculptures and stained-glass windows. Built in 1829 on the site of an older and smaller church, it also sports a famous Casavant organ and the Gros Bourdon, which is said to be the biggest bell in North America.

Day 8 – Tour of Quebec City & Montreal: Peel by the fascinating layers of Quebec City when you set off on a city tour. You will adore explore Quebec which is the only walled city in North American. You will start in Old Quebec at Chateau Frontenac. It’s fabulous turrets, winding hallways and imposing wings graciously complement its dramatic location atop Cap Diamant, a cliff that swoops into the St Lawrence River. Over the years, it’s lured a never-ending line up of luminaries, including Alfred Hitchcock, who chose this setting for the opening scene of his 1953 mystery I Confess. Next you will move onto The Citadel, Fortifications, Petit Champlain, Notre-Dame de Quebec Basilica-Cathedral, Place Royale, Plains of Abraham, Parliament Hill, Saint Lawrence River, and Old Port. Your final stop will be to Montmorency Falls Park.
