Departures from September 2014
Departures from September 2014 will spend two nights in Niagara Falls and one night in Toronto (as opposed to three nights in Toronto). Tour content will be the same although in a slightly different order.
Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday; regular stops will be made though for your comfort en route. The majority of hotels in North America are non-smoking throughout including in all bedrooms. In general smoking outside is acceptable, but do look out for signs prohibiting this close to public entrances or bus stops.
Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. Customary gratuity to a coach driver or tour manager is about $5 per person per day; in a taxi or a restaurant leave 12-15 per cent of the bill and, in the bar, leave a dollar or so per drink.
To get the very best out of Canada’s stunning cities, a well-located base is essential. Using our extensive knowledge of Canada, we have selected centrally located hotels for you to enjoy, all of which will be of at least European four-star standard.
