Departure date

The below itinerary is only a suggestion, we offer tailor-made personal service and solutions to help you plan your perfect vacation.

Day 1 Arrive Montreal Upon arrival at Montreal International Airport transfer independently by limousine or taxi to your downtown hotel (transfer not included).

Day 2 Quebec City Sightseeing Tour Quebec City is the heart of French Canada. Nowhere else in North America is the appearance and atmosphere of an old-world city so complete. Quebec City looks and feels very European; perhaps that is why the entire old section of the town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. Today qualified guides will help you discover the enchanting sights which are part of Quebec City’s history.

Day 3 Montreal City Tour, evening departure to Halifax (Rail) This morning enjoy a comprehensive 3 hour tour of Montreal, taking in over 20 points of interest including the Notre Dame Basilica, St. Joseph’s Oratory, Old Montreal, the French Quarter, views of the Olympic Site and a panoramic view over the city from Mt. Royal. Later in the afternoon board VIA Rail to Halifax. Overnight on VIA Rail. (dinner is included today)

Day 4 On-board VIA Rail Enjoy the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick landscapes before arriving in Halifax this afternoon. Spend the rest of the day exploring this small Atlantic coastal city. (breakfast & lunch are included today)
