A 7 – day motorcoach trip from Lenzner Tour and Travel

Day 1 – 2 : Our trek northward will take us to our multi-faceted neighbor to the north – Canada. Think of it as traveling to Britain at half the cost!  We will enjoy “royal” treatment in Canada’s magnificent capital – Ottawa.  During our Ottawa city tour, a local guide will provide commentary as we visit the Parliament Building, Byward Market, and the Canadian Museum of History. The military event, Changing of the Guards, will fascinate you. (CB, D)

Day 3 – 4 : We will see Canada’s unique French side with a visit to the province of Quebec.  Two nights will be spent in Quebec City.  A local guide will give us a complete historic and modern city tour.  We’ll see “Place d’Armes”, Parliament, Plains of Abraham and a walking tour of Place Royale.  We will enjoy lunch at the famous Chateau Frontenac, visit the healing church, Ste. Anne-de-Beaupre Basilica, and the Island of Orleans. (2B, L, D)

Day 5 : As we leave Quebec City, we will have a memorable experience in store – visiting the unique “European” city of Montreal. We will be treated to delicious cuisine and fully guided sightseeing in Montreal, including a visit to the Notre Dame Basilica. (B, D)

Day 6 : We will head toward New York State and charming Alexandria Bay where we will enjoy a narrated cruise of the 1000 Islands. (B, D)

Day 7 : A scenic day of travel will carry us back to Pennsylvania with many wonderful memories. (B)

You will need a valid passport for this trip.

Cost per person, per room occupancy:

$1,520.00 double; $1,950.00 single; $1,406.00 triple
