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!
