Itinerary

Day 1 UK - Boston

There's excitement in the air as you make your way to the airport and check-in for your flight to Boston in Massachusetts. When you arrive, we'll transfer you to your hotel, which is located right in the heart of downtown Boston. After time to settle in and freshen up, we'll meet for a welcome drink this evening.

Day 2 Boston - Plymouth

Join a Local Guide for a guided tour of Boston, the city known for the Boston Tea Party, a political protest over the Tea Act of 1773. This event rallied residents of the North American colonies to fight for independence from Great Britain, and you'll learn more about this as we follow parts of the famous Freedom Trail this morning. The trail leads to a collection of historic sites including the Granary Burying Ground, where some of America's most notable citizens have been laid to rest. You'll also visit Beacon Hill, the city's charming historic district and we'll cross the water and head to Cambridge, home of the world-famous Harvard University. At lunchtime, we'll make our way to the vibrant area around Quincy Market, where you'll have time for a bite to eat at one of the fabulous food stalls.

Later this afternoon we will make our way to Plymouth, our base for the next two nights.

Day 3 Cape Cod

A quintessential New England town, Plymouth is where America's founding fathers first set foot in the New World in 1620. Our first stop on today's trip is at the town's Pilgrim Memorial State Park. We'll see the Plymouth Rock, a boulder said to mark the spot where the pilgrims came ashore and a replica of the Mayflower ship. Next, we'll visit Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod. We'll pass the National Seashore, a protected 40-mile stretch of pristine coastline on the way and when we arrive, you'll have free time to explore. There's an eclectic mix of art galleries, shops, restaurants and bars along Commercial Street; a perfect spot for lunch if you're feeling hungry.

Day 4 Plymouth - Lake Winnipesaukee

We are going to head north to the Lakes Region in New Hampshire today and will take a cruise on shimmering Lake Winnipesaukee. Surrounded by hills, the lake's forest-covered shoreline is dotted with small, picturesque towns and we'll learn about the region's history while enjoying amazing views of the fall colours.

We'll round off a fabulous day of sightseeing by enjoying dinner together this evening.

Meals included: D

Day 5 White Mountains

Today, we'll venture into New Hampshire's White Mountains. Our drive takes us along the scenic Kancamagus Highway, a beautiful stretch of road and one of the best places from which to see New England's exceptional fall foliage. We'll visit the beautiful town of North Conway before travelling deeper into the mountains to admire more sensational scenery. Gazing through the window, you'll be amazed by the sheer scale of the spectacle as you take in views of towering mountains, hillsides and valleys swathed in a kaleidoscope of blazing colours.

Meals included: B

Day 6 Vermont - Montreal

A journey by road gives you plenty more opportunity to soak up New England's glorious scenery as we drive through the Green Mountains of Vermont. We’ll make a short visit to Montpelier to see the Vermont State House, the smallest state capital in the USA and stop at Morse Maple Farm to see how maple syrup is produced. We'll then head to the lakefront city of Burlington, the perfect spot for lunch if you are feeling peckish, before continuing to the Canadian border and on to Montreal. This bilingual city occupies an island at the junction of the St Lawrence and Ottawa Rivers and has a real cosmopolitan feel.

Meals included: B

Day 7 Montreal

This morning, a sightseeing tour will introduce us to the cobbled streets and historic buildings of Old Montreal. We'll also step inside the city's most famous landmark, Notre-Dame Basilica, to admire its incredible decor of carved wood, sculptures and stained-glass windows.

The rest of the day has been left free for you to explore Montreal at leisure. If you're feeling energetic, you could climb the 250 or so steps to the summit of Mount Royal for stunning views of the city and beyond. A more sedate option is to admire the views from La Grande Roue de Montreal; Canada's tallest observation wheel. The city also boasts an excellent selection of fine restaurants and open-air cafes, and an array of well-known stores and upmarket boutiques for those who fancy a spot of retail therapy. Your Holiday Director will be on hand to provide recommendations if you would like help planning your day.

Day 8 Montreal - Ottawa - Toronto

Our destination today is Toronto, but not before a stop in Canada's capital city Ottawa. We'll head to ByWard Market where you can grab a coffee and snack if you wish and then take a walk to see the highlights. Located on the Rideau Canal, Ottawa's main attractions include the Parliament Buildings, The National War Memorial and the grand Fairmont Chateau Laurier hotel.

We'll continue to Toronto later where your hotel is perfectly located if you want to start exploring by yourselves this evening.

Day 9 Toronto

You're going to discover the bustling metropolis of Toronto on a guided sightseeing tour that will finish at the base of the iconic, 553-metre-high CN Tower. If you wish, you can take a high-speed lift to the tower's main observation level where, on a clear day, the views of the city and surrounding area are incredible.

Now you have your bearings, you'll be keen to head off and explore more of the city independently, so this afternoon has been left free for you to do just that. You could perhaps browse the one-of-a-kind boutiques and eclectic array of galleries and restaurants in the Distillery District or take a harbour cruise for magnificent views of the city's skyline.

Day 10 Toronto - Niagara Falls - Corning

Today, we're going to head to one of the greatest sights in the New World, the incredible Niagara Falls. Comprised of three separate waterfalls, Horseshoe Falls, American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls, you'll have plenty of free time to explore and can choose how you want to view these thundering waters. At the Table Rock Centre, you can enjoy incredible close-up views and experience the spray of the falls from dry land. If you're happy to get wet, a thrilling boat ride will take you right into the mist to experience the power of the falls from the river below. However, for the ultimate thrill, the chance to fly over Niagara Falls on an optional helicopter ride is an experience that's hard to beat.

Later we'll cross the border back into the USA for an overnight stay in Corning, New York State.

Day 11 Corning - New York

We're back on the road, heading to The Big Apple today. Our drive takes us through upstate New York and gives you another opportunity to admire the beautiful fall foliage. When we arrive in New York City, a Local Guide will accompany us on a tour of the iconic sights, including Times Square, Wall Street and Broadway.

Your hotel is in the heart of Manhattan, ideal if you want to dine out this evening.

Day 12 New York - at Leisure

You're free to explore New York City at your leisure. With so many incredible things to do, it's a good idea to check in with your Holiday Director for hints and tips on how to make the most of your day.

You could start by admiring aerial views from one of the city's tallest buildings; our favourites are the Empire State Building, Top of the Rock, and One World Observatory. The 9/11 Memorial & Museum is an unmissable attraction telling the story of that tragic day in 2001 and honouring the lives of those who were lost. A ride on the Staten Island ferry is a great way to snap pictures of the Statue of Liberty and of course, a stroll around Central Park is a must.

This evening, you could head to Chinatown or cosmopolitan Chelsea for dinner, or maybe take in a Broadway show.

Day 13 New York - UK

Enjoy a final morning exploring New York, before we drive to the airport for our overnight flight back to the UK.

Day 14 UK

You'll arrive home today.
