Itinerary

Day 1 : New York City - Corning Glass Museum - Niagara Falls

Our bus tour begins with a drive from New York City to Corning, New York to visit the Corning Museum of Glass which is the largest glass museum in the world with more than 45,000 objects from over 3,500 years of glassmaking history. You will also see live, narrated glassmaking demonstrations. Afterwards the bus tour will take you to Niagara Falls. The Falls is collectively made from the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and are famous for their beauty and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power. A historical boat ride aboard the world famous Maid of the Mist offers up close and exciting views of the Falls. Next we are going to visit the Whirlpool State Park, which is a 125-foot deep whirlpool under the Niagara River. If time is available we will go to the Old Fort Niagara, located at the mouth of the Niagara River. Be sure to catch the short guided tour that explains a lot in a short time. The fact that the old French Castle from 1726 is still standing today is amazing. The history and importance of this fort is a compelling reason to preserve it and the artifacts in the museum were spectacular. If you're a history buff or just like tours of this kind you have to see this. In the evening, we will join the Native Indian show, The Spirit of the Mist. The show presented by the World Class Native Spirit Dancers. Come together as they take you on a journey of beautiful dance, traditional music and stories passed through the generations.

Next we head to Toronto, Canada - one of the largest cities in Canada. From the heights of the CN Tower, you’ll be able to look out across the city and Lake Ontario. It is Toronto’s famous landmark, the tallest freestanding structure in Canada, and also the most impossible to miss in our trip. The highest viewing area on the CN Tower is from the Sky Pod at 447 meters and a lower viewing area, the Glass Floor, offers a bird's eye view straight down over the city as visitors stand on a glass floor as the name suggests. We will also see the Ontario’s Provincial Parliament which completed in a Romanesque style in 1893 and then the modernist styled City Hall which consists of two arc-shaped high-rise blocks, 20 and 27 stories high respectively, whose stunning structure makes it another popular landmark.

The famous Olympic Tower together with the Olympics stadium has become the symbol of the city. The 175-meter inclined tower leans at a 45-degree angle and functions as an observation deck with a funicular that whisks passengers to the top in 95 seconds. Amble around and soak up the European charm of the Old Montreal, you will marvel at how you can step back in time at every cobblestone corner. Along the way, we will pass by the grand Notre-Dame Basilica. Lastly, a plenty of dinner options in Chinatown will bring you a satisfactory end of the day!

Everything in the town such as the street signs, cafes, buildings, people’s dressing look and the atmosphere will tell its rich French descent. As you wander past period buildings along cobblestone streets, enjoy the area's boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants. A visit to Place Royale is like a step back in time to the early days of New France. Quebec is the only fortified city in North America north of Mexico, with close to 4.6 km of walls and imposing gates to explore.

Day 5 : Boston - New York City

Our Boston bus tour begins by heading out to Cambridge, world-renowned academic home to both Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Harvard University, founded in 1636, is the nation’s oldest institution of higher education and remains much in the same brick and mortar colonial style, fenced in by lively Harvard Square. A short bus ride takes you to the MIT campus with its old world meets modernity combination of architecture, exuding the passion for technological advancement that is fostered within its community. After our education, we will pass by the old Trinity Cathedral, the Hancock Building, the Boston Common, Prudential Center, and Boston Public Library along the way while overlooking the gold dome of the State House. Next, a Harbor Cruise will take you around the Port of Boston, historically one of the America’s principal seaports since the days of colonial rule. Boston Harbor has remained an important gateway between the land and the sea throughout America’s lifetime, and was the site of perhaps the most famous revolutionary activity, the Boston Tea Party. From the harbor, you will get the best view of the Boston skyline and watch how the city wraps around alongside the flowing Charles River.
