Savor the diversity and enchantment of the great cities of the Northeast and Canada on this enticing tour. Your vacation begins in Boston and ends in New York City with overnights in Boston, Québec City, Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Lancaster, and Washington DC.

You’ll enjoy guided sightseeing of the must-see sights in each of the cities, such as Boston’s Freedom Trail; Québec City’s Palace Royale, the historic square known as the birthplace of French America; Montréal’s 19th-century Notre Dame Basilica, where Globus has included an inside visit; Toronto’s Chinatown; Washington DC’s most famous landmarks; and Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Sightseeing in Canada’s capital, Ottawa, features a guided tour of the Parliament of Canada, where you’ll learn about the Parliament’s history and hear stories about some of the key players—a special experience offered by Globus.

On this tour, Globus has arranged some fun experiences to make your vacation unique. From Québec City, travel to Ile d’Orléans, a picturesque island where you’ll enjoy dinner at a fine restaurant in a restored 17th-century flour mill. You’ll also visit an Amish family and their farm in Lancaster to learn about their traditional way of life that excludes the use of modern conveniences, such as electricity and telephones. Of course, no vacation to Eastern Canada is complete without a stop at Niagara Falls. In Niagara Falls, you’ll spend the night and enjoy a cruise to view the thundering falls from the river level.

All of this and more are included on this exciting tour through Eastern Canada and the US.

In addition to leading tours all over the United States and Canada, I enjoy my travels outside of North America, including Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Originally from Connecticut, my favorite season is autumn when the stunning fall foliage transforms the area into an even more beautiful landscape. I have a particular interest in U.S. history, and really enjoy connecting the places we visit on tour with stories from the past and contemporary issues of the present.
