Day 1 London - Toronto
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to London Heathrow Airport and a direct, scheduled Air Canada flight to Toronto. On arrival our coach transfers you to the Sheraton Centre Hotel (4T), for the first three nights.
Day 2 Toronto
For this morning we have arranged a sightseeing tour to introduce you to Toronto, including views of some of the splendidly-restored 19th century buildings in contrast to the glistening skyscrapers. The remainder of the day is yours to independently explore this friendly city; don’t miss the far-reaching views from the observation deck of the CN Tower, over 500m high and with a partly-glazed floor for a fuller view over the city.
Day 3 Niagara Falls
Toronto is ideally located for a full-day excursion to experience one of the great spectacles of nature - Niagara Falls. Picturesque in their parkland setting and awe-inspiring in their power, the Falls are a true icon of world travel. An optional excursion is available here to take a boat trip to the base of the falls. We include a stop at Niagara on the Lake; a charming 19th century village on the bank of Lake Ontario. We return to Toronto in the evening.
Day 4 Toronto - Ottawa
Following the north shore of Lake Ontario we reach Rockport from where we take a cruise around the lovely Thousand Islands archipelago, surrounded by the St Lawrence River. Take in the scenic views and magnificent historical estates and buildings that rise from the islands.

We then travel onwards to Québec City, where we spend the next two nights at the Hotel Chateau Laurier Québec (4T).

Nestled in a valley, surrounded by incredible nature, you will find the New Brunswick Botanical Gardens, as well as historical and cultural attractions.
Day 10 Edmundston - Moncton
Today we continue towards Moncton with a stop at Kings Landing Historical Settlement just outside the capital city of Fredericton. A living history site, Kings Landing is a step back in time to a 19th century working village that preserves the original homes of the United Empire Loyalists. With over 70 historic buildings, it sits on 300 acres along the banks of the majestic St John River. Make your way into Fredericton and visit the Historic Garrison District, a National Historic Site, now the site for local artisan and craft shops and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, Lord Beaverbrook’s (Sir Maxwell Aitken) gift to New Brunswick featuring works by Canadian and British artists and other international artists. We overnight at Delta Beausejour (4T) in Moncton.

Day 12 Baddeck - The Cabot Trail - Sydney
For this morning, we have an included excursion to the Alexander Graham Bell Museum which contains the largest collection of Bell’s artefacts and inventions. We drive the Cabot Trail, a scenic 185 mile circular route on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island, passing through the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, a wilderness home to moose, black bears and bald eagles.
