Departing from Gray Line Visitors Center at 07:00 leave the rush of the city behind. All overnight accommodation, as well as entrance fees, are included in the price. You won’t need to think about a thing – except enjoying yourself!
The Finger Lakes and Niagara Falls
From New York City you’ll head straight towards Watkins Glen, New York, where you’ll be able to marvel at the picturesque Finger Lakes. This little quiet town is at the base of Seneca Lake and gives you a preview of what you can expect a lot more of later: waterfalls. After enjoying the natural scenery of Watkins Glen National Park, you’ll continue on to see the most spectacular and famous waterfalls in the world – the Niagara Falls. You can tour the falls at night admiring the colourful display of lights in the water before you fall asleep in the comfortable Executive Inn Super 8 (or a similar hotel).
Maid of the Mist Boat Tour
The second day starts with breakfast at the hotel followed by enough time to marvel at the Niagara Falls once more. You will be able to take the Maid of the Mist boat tour where you travel so close to the falls that you get showered in their mist. This is only possible in the warmer months of May through October and if you are travelling outside of these months, you’ll be able to explore the falls from behind. Afterwards, you’ll head to Toronto (with a stop at the town Niagara on the Lake if weather permitting) and view the many sites the city has to offer. In the 4-5 hours of the allocated time, you can visit the CN Tower, City Hall, Parliament and Eaton Center. You will be able to dine at one of the local restaurants (at your own expense) before you head to the town of Gananoque for the night.
On the last day, you’ll take a boat tour down to the scenic St Lawrence River where you’ll be impressed by the beautiful 1000 Islands that straddle the border between the United States and Canada. When the weather is less permitting (typically in the months November – April) you will head to the Welland Canal Locks where ships are moved up and down the river. You will finish the day at The Crossings Premium Outlets to find lots of designer and brand-name bargains.
After purchasing you will receive a voucher that you can print and use as your ticket, or show as a mobile ticket on your phone.
