Details

Tauck’s Canada’s Capital Cities plus Niagara Falls tour showcases the distinct differences between Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Quebec City.

Days 1–2 / Toronto – Niagara Falls
Arrive in Toronto and transfer to the Fairmont Royal York in the heart of the city. Enjoy a welcome reception and private dinner at the Royal Ontario Museum, the largest museum in Canada. In the morning, take a catamaran cruise at thundering Niagara Falls and have lunch on your own in the quaint Victorian village of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Return to Toronto for free time and dinner at leisure at your hotel.

Day 3 / Thousand Islands – Ottawa
Relax on a lunch cruise through the scenic Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River and arrive in Ottawa in late afternoon. Dine with views of the Parliament Buildings and the Rideau Canal locks, built in the 1830s as a link between the Ottawa River and Lake Ontario.

Days 4–5 / Ottawa – Montreal
Take a guided tour of the Gothic Revival Parliament Buildings and a docent-led tour at the Canadian Museum of History and spend time exploring the sights of the city on your own. In the morning, meet a retired officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police before setting off for Montreal. Enjoy lunch at the privately owned Chateau Vaudreuil, a historic hotel on the shores of the Lake of Two Mountains. A local guide introduces you to life in the province on a tour of the city.

Day 6 / Old Montreal
Take a walking and tasting tour in the oldest part of the city. The city squares and cobblestone streets lit by gas lamps will remind you of the history and romance of Old World Europe. Pursue your own interests in the afternoon and join your fellow travelers for dinner at a restaurant in Old Montreal.

Day 7 / Quebec City
En route to Quebec City, stop to visit a traditional Quebecois sugar shack and then continue on to Montmorency Falls for a guided tour and a gondola ride. On arrival in Quebec City, enjoy dinner at leisure at your castle-like hotel, the Fairmont Le Chateau Frontenac.

Day 8 / Quebec City – Ile d’Orleans
Discover the many facets of one of the oldest cities in North America on an orientation tour. You’ll see landmark historical sites, including La Citadelle de Quebec and the Plains of Abraham. Visit historic Ile d’Orleans, an island of red-roofed farmhouses and fields of produce. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant and an afternoon cider tasting at a nearby farm. The rest of the day is at leisure.

Days 9–10 / Quebec City
The entire day is yours to experience the city’s setting on the St. Lawrence, its rich architectural legacy and its colorful past at your own pace. Enjoy a farewell dinner with musical entertainment at your hotel and fly home any time after breakfast in the morning. A transfer from the hotel to Quebec City International Airport is included.
