Day 1: New York Area – Niagara Falls
We’ll leave the New York area behind and venture north towards the mighty Niagara Falls. These epic falls are actually made up of 3 waterfalls, all of which combine to make an impressive spectacle and an ear-bursting amount of noise! Settle down for the night in your comfortable guesthouse. We’ll see the falls up close tomorrow!
Day 2: Niagara Falls – Toronto
Board the legendary ‘Maid of the Mist’ to see the falls up close. Then it’s time to hop across the border via the iconic Rainbow Bridge to begin our Canadian adventures! Trendy Toronto is our first stop. Enjoy some free time to check out the fashionable boutiques and cosy cafes.
Day 3-4: Montreal
Montreal is the second-largest French-speaking city in the world! Enjoy some European vibes in the museums, galleries and cocktail clubs. If you fancy some retail therapy, check out ‘Underground City’ with its fantastic selection of shops.

Due to Covid-19, many of our partners and suppliers across the globe are putting in place new procedures and policies regarding health and safety in response to the outbreak. These new measures will adapt and change as the state of travel evolves, and the policies and procedures will vary depending on each trip. Some changes that you may experience on our trips are:
Updated safety & hygiene procedures
Health and safety measures will be adapted by our partners and suppliers, dependent on local laws and restrictions.
Different transport & accommodation
You may find yourself on transport or in accommodation that would not typically be used, such as hostels that are more secluded, or on more private transport. This may vary by trip, or even by individual departure dates.
Most trips include a meeting on arrival with the guide or local team to discuss the trip, and this is an opportunity for you to ask any questions. You should arrive in time to attend these briefings.
Emergency support 24/7
We have a UK based 24/7 emergency phone line if you have a genuine urgent matter that you need attending.
Knowledgeable & Trained Staff
We can help answer any questions or concerns you may have before you depart. Whilst travelling the guide or local team on our trips are there to help, and to ensure the smooth running of our trips.
Should you require medical assistance whilst travelling, the local team or guide will be able to help you get to a point of care. Medical facilities and standards can vary across the glove, so you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place.
Varying group sizes
To begin with, many trips will run with amended group sizes, so you may find smaller groups than would be typical. This may vary by trip, or even by individual departure dates.
Whilst there may be changes on our trips, it is vital that you make travelling safer for yourself, your travel companions, the local staff and guides, and the people of the country you are visiting. You should follow all local laws and restrictions, and follow the guidance of the local team. In addition, you can help make travel safer by bringing and using your own face coverings/masks and hand sanitiser, social distance where appropriate, wash your hands frequently, and cover your face when coughing or sneezing.
