Canada's Eastern Express

Description

On this eight day journey through the urban centres and rural splendour of Ontario and Quebec you will celebrate Canada's French and English heritage. Beginning in cosmopolitan Toronto and the natural wonder of Niagara Falls you will travel to Ottawa to see the impressive Parliament Buildings before heading east into Quebec along the scenic highway that runs beside the mighty St Lawrence River to the walled centre of Quebec City. Then it's back inland to the Saguenay region with its rolling hills and dense forests. Then travel on to Montreal , the second largest French speaking city in the world, before returning to Ontario to visit historic Kingston and its 1,000 islands from the deck of a comfortable cruise ship and ending this spectacular tour where it began in Toronto.

Day 1
Toronto

After arriving at Toronto's Pearson International Airport you pick up your hire car then make your own way to your downtown hotel where your Jonview Canada Roadbook will be waiting at the front desk as you check-in. The remainder of the day is at leisure to explore the many attractions of this vibrant and culturally diverse city and dine out in one of the many fine restaurants.

Day 2
Toronto / Niagara Falls Excursion

Today is free to discover Toronto at your own pace. Visit impressive city landmarks such as the Rogers Centre (formerly the SkyDome), explore the harbour front district on foot or boat, or perhaps find a shopping bargain or two at the multi-levelled Eaton Centre. Included today is admission to the CN Tower where an express, glass elevator whisks you up to the observation lounge of this giant monument to engineering. For a real thrill, visit the famed Niagara Falls, about an hour and a half drive south. Your route will take you through Ontario’s wine-growing region and should include a stop in the picturesque town of Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Day 3
Toronto to Ottowa

Drive east today, following the shoreline of Lake Ontario and pass through the small communities and villages that dot the landscape. The city of Kingston is home to the prestigious Queen’s University and is the gateway to the port lands of the beautiful 1000 Islands – a nearly countless collection of small islets grouped over a vast natural waterway. The road turns north along the Rideau Heritage Route and takes you through riverside towns such as Smiths Falls and Edmond’s Lock. Arrive in the afternoon in Canada’s national capital.

Day 4
Ottowa to Quebec City

Before leaving Ottawa today, you can visit the Parliament Buildings, museums or National Gallery, take a tour of the Royal Canadian Mint or enjoy a leisurely boat ride on the Ottawa River. Crossing the border into the province of Quebec, taking the north shore of the St. Lawrence will bring you through the town of Trois Rivières where you can stop at the Cathedral Of Immaculate Conception, a rebuilt Gothic building featuring magnificent examples of stained glass throughout the church. Later you pass through the walled gates for two days of exploring historic and beautiful Quebec city.

Day 5
Quebec City

Spend a full-day in Canada’s oldest city. Founded in 1608, Quebec City is the only walled city in North America and a designated United Nations World Heritage Site – just one of the many things you’ll learn on your sightseeing tour offering a comprehensive orientation of the historic and modern city. You will see the Latin Quarter, the Plains of Abraham, the Citadel, the Fortifications, the National Assembly, Place Royale, the Basilica and other points of interest. Stroll the cobblestone streets in the evening and enjoy one of the many fine dining or casual restaurants featuring local delicacies.

Day 6
Quebec City to Montreal

Today’s scenic drive takes you through the fertile plains and rolling hills of the Mauricie / Bois-Francs and Lanaudiere regions bound for the forests and unspoiled scenery of Lac à la Truite. Stop in Berthierville and visit the Gilles Villeneuve Museum, then continue to the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Montreal. Here you should visit the stunning Notre-Dame Basilica, the Olympic site, the Biodome, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Mt. Royal Park, Casino or the underground city.

Day 7
Montreal to Kingston

Cross the border into Ontario today and explore the tranquility of the Thousand Islands region. Visit Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg or Old Fort Henry, a historic fortification dating from the 1830s where a fully-costumed military parade is held daily. You can also visit colonial grounds of Queen’s University, or the museum of the Royal Military College, the oldest military academy in Canada. You will also enjoy a cruise of the beautiful 1000 Islands – an unforgettable trip through the near countless small inlets that are home to a wide variety of marine mammals and waterfowl.

Day 8
Kingston to Toronto / End of tour

The road west along the shores of Lake Ontario leads back through the fertile lands of Prince Edward County, replete with historic communities boasting former residences and summer homes of Canada’s British-era governors and magistrates. The area contains a number of successful vineyards and cheese makers, inviting visitors to stop in small villages such as Picton for a taste of the local fare. Then continue on to Toronto’s International Airport to check in for your return flight.

Our family has used DialAFlight three times in the last twelve months (Spain, Trinidad, Canada). The staff are prompt, courteous, flexible, efficient and reliable - arranging flights, check-ins, hotels and transfers. They were recommended to us by a friend who uses them for flights to South Africa.

Air France let us down. They delayed the flight in Torronto for 2hrs to wait for 20 missing passengers. We were late in arriving at Paris. The assistance was late in arriving at the plane and had to go back for a wheelchair so we missed the connection by 5 minutes and they gave us two 80-year-olds a meagre 15 euros to sit in the airport for 10 hours. DialAFlight always! Air France never again
