After the sun sets over Washington DC experience a truly magnificent night as the monuments illuminate over the National Mall.


Day 4: Washington DC/Allegheny National Forest

Enjoy the rolling hills of the countryside en route to Allegheny National Forest. Relax amongst the trees and wilderness.
It is time to leave the city behind and get back to nature. This scenic drive hugs the shoreline of the mighty Allegheny Reservoir and provides stunning vistas and recreational opportunities.


Day 5: Allegheny National Forest/Niagara Falls

Board the Maid of the Mist to get up close and personal with Niagara Falls. See if luck's on your side at a casino. Cross the border into Canada and check out the falls at night.
Stay after dark and witness the falls illuminated in a rainbow of colour. Hit the casino if you're feeling lucky (& are 21 or older!).

Day 8: Toronto/Ottawa

Travel to Canada's capital city, Ottawa. With free time, opt to explore ByWard Market, visit the parliament buildings, take a bike tour of the city, or indulge in a classic Canadian treat – the Beaver Tail (don't worry, it's not actually from a beaver)!


Day 9: Ottawa/Montreal

Travel to Montreal and enjoy a brief orientation to the city with the CEO. Bienvenue à Montreal! Now that's hospitality with a distinctly French flavour - and what could be more appropriate for the second largest French-speaking metropolis in the world?

For our two nights in Montreal, we stay close to the action in a simple hostel in the city centre.
