Itinerary

 

Itinerary in brief:

  • 3 nights Toronto
  • 2 nights Ottawa
  • 1 night Toronto

Day 1: Arrive in Toronto  

Upon arrival in Toronto, make your way to your hotel where you will check in for your 3 night stay. You have some time to begin exploring the city or just relaxing at your hotel.


Day 2: Toronto                

Today we’ve included a city tour through the cosmopolitan city of Toronto. In the afternoon, you’ll visit one of Canada’s most distinguished art museums; The Art Gallery of Ontario. This museum features one of the largest Inuit art collections and is a fascinating place to spend an afternoon.


Day 3: Niagara Falls Day Tour

Today you’ll head to one of the area’s main attractions - Niagara Falls for a full day tour. You’ll be taken from Toronto for a full day tour through the orchard-laden Niagara Peninsula to Niagara Falls, one of the great wonders of the world.

Your tour includes a Hornblower cruise or a ‘Journey behind the Falls’ tour, as well as plenty of time to take in the sights and sounds of Niagara-on-the-lake at your own pace.

A meal overlooking the falls is a fantastic highlight of today, but it doesn’t stop there; you’ll have the chance to visit a local winery for a spot of wine tasting, before heading back to Toronto.


Day 4: Toronto to Ottawa

This morning you’ll leave Toronto and make your way to the Canadian capital, Ottawa by rail. You’ll cross Ontario and enjoy lunch on the train.

The rest of your day is free for you to explore Ottawa. We recommend heading to Parliament Hill (home of the Canadian parliament) and some of the finest Gothic-revival architecture.


Day 5: Ottawa River Cruise

This morning we’ve included an Ottawa River Cruise which will tell you more about how the city was first conceived, with the river as its main highway and resource. You’ll get to experience the natural beauty of this region that inspired the first European explorer Samuel de Chaplain.

Our top city highlights include; Parliament Buildings, the National Art Gallery, the Supreme Court, and Rideau Falls. This cruise is a great way to get a real feel for this stunning city.

Your afternoon is free for you to wander the streets of Ottawa. If you’re visiting during the summer,  be sure to return to the Parliament later in the evening, where you can watch the sound and light show that takes place here each night.


Day 6: Ottawa to Toronto

It’s time to return to Toronto, again by train with your lunch on-board included. Upon arrival in Toronto, you can check in for your one night stay.

The remainder of your day is free to catch anything you missed the first time around!

Your Toronto & Ottawa trip comes to and end today.

Info

Weather can be variable at all times of the year in Southern and Eastern Canada. The South (including Toronto & Ottawa) is the most densely populated part of the country and this combined with its southerly latitude makes for the warmest part of the country. The Great Lakes tend not to freeze over until Mid-December. Winter brings the snow and the weather can be pretty severe. Summers are quite warm with considerable amounts of sunshine. High season falls in the summer months here, with lots of tourists visiting and room rates at a premium. Crowds drop and temperatures are cooler during May, September and October which can make for a pleasant time to visit, although be aware some activity opening hours may be restricted. Ski resorts peak again during the winter months.

This itinerary is purely a suggestion, and can be tailor-made to your requirements, so please contact us with your dates and requests and we’ll put together a bespoke quotation for you.
