Itinerary at a Glance
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 Toronto
On arrival, make your way to your hotel and then get ready to explore. As the world's most ethnically diverse city, Toronto has distinctive shopping districts and markets that offer a wide range of unique shopping experiences. These vibrant retail areas include Queen Street West, Kensington Market, St. Lawrence Market, five Chinatowns, Little Italy along St. Clair West, the Greek community along "The Danforth," Little Portugal at Dundas and Bathurst Streets, and Gerrard India Bazaar at Gerrard and Greenwood.
Day 2 Niagara Falls Day Tour (Coach)
Today, enjoy a full-day tour to the Niagara Peninsula: Canada's fruit belt and major wine-producing region, home to the spectacular Niagara Falls - one of the great wonders of the world. Your tour includes Hornblower Cruises or Journey Behind the Falls, a meal overlooking Niagara Falls, free time in Niagara Falls, and a winery tour including a wine tasting.
Day 3 Toronto to Ottawa (453 km/281 mi)
This morning collect your rental car and travel to the nation's capital, Ottawa. Once arrived, spend the remainder of the day at your leisure. Take in the Parliament Buildings or take a boat cruise along the Rideau Canal.
Day 4 Ottawa Exploring
In the heart of Ottawa, rising dramatically from a bluff overlooking the Ottawa River, are the Parliament Buildings. These house the National Assembly and serve as the symbol of the capital, and are the focal point of a city that has become a fascinating blend of English and French, historic and modern, ceremonial and casual. A short distance from downtown is the Ottawa Locks of the Rideau Canal. Today we included your Canadian Museum of Nature admission. It features world-class galleries with fossils, mammals, minerals, birds, live creatures and Arctic discovery. You'll see Canada's original collection of dinosaur fossils, an enormous blue whale skeleton, and you can touch real ice on a beautiful installation in the Canada Goose Arctic Gallery. Another must-see is the Canadian Museum of History, located directly across the Ottawa River from Parliament Hill showing the rich culture and history of Canada.
Day 5 Ottawa to Montreal (192 km/119 mi)
Leaving the Capital Region, travel eastbound towards the border of Ontario and Quebec following the south shore of the Ottawa River. The area east of Ottawa is flat rural land. This area was settled in the first half of the 1800s by settlers from the British Isles, as well as by soldiers who were given land claims as reward for their service in the War of 1812 and the subsequent construction of the Rideau Canal. For a leisurely drive, take the Old Highway 17 along the Ottawa River, rather than the 417, and see the pace of rural life as it used to be.
Day 6 Montreal City Sightseeing
Montreal offers a number of unique attractions, from some of North America's oldest and most spectacular architecture to professional sports and botanical treasures. Enjoy a 3 hour tour of the city, taking in more than 20 points of interest, including a stop at the Notre Dame Basilica, residential and financial districts, Old Montreal, French Quarter, outside view of Olympic Site, McGill University and the panoramic view from an observation point on top of Mt. Royal. The balance of the day is yours to enjoy Montreal.
Day 7 Montreal to Quebec City (263 km/164 mi)
Today you will trace the St. Lawrence River as you head north to Quebec City. The slower Route 138 takes you off the mundane highways in order to experience rural Quebec and the remaining farms from the seigneurial regime. Along the way, pass through Trois-Rivieres, one of the first European settlements dating back to 1634 and the point from which French explorers embarked on their North American discovery.
Day 8 Quebec City Tour
Experience the old world charm of Vieux Quebec with a guided tour of the old city on foot. With its cobblestone streets, fortified city wall (one of a kind in North America), and seventeenth century architecture, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is complimented by artisan shops, cafes, landscaped parks and numerous monuments. Take a stroll on the Plains of Abraham and visit the historic Chateau Frontenac. Visit one or more of the great local museums or simply enjoy the city sights at your own pace!
Day 9 Quebec City
Check out from your hotel and conclude your tour by returning your rental vehicle.
