  • Day 1

    Away to Ottawa, Canada’s understated Capital City. Our historic accommodations are well-located in the heart of downtown and the shadow of Parliament Hill. Lord Elgin Hotel – 2 nights (D)

  • Day 2

    Take a comprehensive tour around Ottawa including a chance to visit the House of Parliament both inside and out, the latter during the impressive Changing of the Guard ceremony. After lunch, the Canadian Museum of History offers you an interesting look at milestones in the country’s 150 years of confederation. After dark don’t miss Northern Lights, a spectacular sound and light show broadcast on Parliament’s striking façade. (FB,L)

  • Day 3

    Explore the Canadian countryside as you train across la belle province, arriving in Québec City in the late afternoon. You’re just in time for dinner and entertainment at a real sugar shack, Erabliére le Chemin du Roy – a meal fit for a king! Hilton Hotel Québec – 3 nights (FB,D)

  • Day 4

    Perhaps the country’s most impressive birthday celebration is Rendez-vous 2017, a Tall Ships Regatta on the St. Lawrence River, and you’ll be there for the spectacle as 40 ships with a combined crew of over 3,000 converge upon the province! Tour the city in the morning, ending with lunch served within the hallowed walls of the Hôtel du Parliament (Québec’s national assembly building). Explore visiting ships and a festival atmosphere along the river to complete your day. (FB,L)

  • Day 5

    The Cathedral of Sainte-Anne-deBeaupré and majestic Montmorency Falls sit along the St. Lawrence, only a short distance from Québec. Visit the holy shrine, then have lunch with a view high above the falls – reached by cable car, no less! You’ll also visit the Copper Art Studio showcasing the work of artist Albert Gilles, whose masterpieces are the doors and altar ornaments you saw at Ste. Anne. A family member will be there to help you craft an objet d’art of your own. Back in Québec, return to the river in the evening for the spectacular musical fireworks show. (FB,L)

  • Day 6

    A scenic drive along the St. Lawrence takes you to Québec’s most populous and cosmopolitan city, Montréal. Holy sites, Olympic venues, history and culture – all with a decidedly French flair – are yours to discover on an afternoon sightseeing tour. The interior of Notre-Dame Basilica is breathtaking. Your farewell dinner offers up a final taste of gastronomie canadienne-française. Hotel Le Germain (FB,D)

  • Day 7

    Montréal hosted the Summer Olympic Games in 1976. The venue constructed to house the cycling events is now the Biodome. To call it a mere greenhouse or even a zoo would be an understatement! The Biodome leads you through four distinct ecosystems complete with animals and marine life – the perfect place to end a perfect Canadian adventure. (FB)


A Day at the Races

Our always popular Day at the Races includes a sumptuous buffet lunch and seating in the enclosed Turf Club at Golden Gate Fields by beautiful San Francisco Bay in Berkeley. Enjoy the races with betting windows nearby and television monitors throughout the dining room.


A Day Out in San Francisco

Enjoy a ride to The City for a day of shopping, lunch or just looking around! The coach will drop you at Pier 39/ Fishermens Wharf and Union Square.


A Magical Luncheon

First presented as a mystery daytrip last summer with three departures, this “Magical Luncheon” received rave reviews! Host Gerry Griffin welcomes you to his house of fun and illusion for the afternoon. A very tasty pre-set menu is served with tableside magic and humor. Then sit back and enjoy the show that is filled with laughter and illusion. You will come away mystified.
