9 Day Tour from Toronto to Montreal

With guided sightseeing in each, this encompassing tour of Eastern Canada makes it easy to compare and contrast the diverse flavors of the region - especially with an included lofty lunch at Toronto's soaring CN Tower, a wine tasting at picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake, a scenic cruise around the rugged Thousand Islands, a classic French dinner in Old Town Quebec, and breakfast in a traditional sugar shack. A must-have beavertail pastry in the capital city of Ottawa is just as sweet.
