The World Next Door

Explore four distinctly different capital cities in eastern Canada – Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City, each with its own unique personality and cultural background.

Enjoy multiple-night stays at landmark Fairmont hotels in the heart of the cities – The Fairmont Royal York, Fairmont Château Laurier, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac and Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth – with more time to explore what makes each city so special.

Private cruise through the Thousand Islands

Day 3

The Gilded Age, castles, lighthouses, pirates and bootleggers...

On a luncheon cruise through the famed – and infamous – Thousand Islands, every island has a story to tell. The islands are actually an archipelago in the St. Lawrence Seaway, harboring secrets that withstand time. From wealthy robber barons to runaway brides, presidents to pirates, Gilded Age tycoons and millionaires to social climbing actors, the tales are fascinating and the scenery divine.

A walk through Old Montreal

Day 6

A walking tour of Vieux–Montréal (Old Montreal) is a journey through Old World Europe...

Cobblestone streets lit by gas lamps... city squares graced with 18th- and 19th-century buildings... epicurean treats that delight the senses... cafés and leafy squares... carriages on cobblestone streets... outdoor plazas, museums, historic churches... street musicians who play from the heart...

Upgrade to a Fairmont Gold River View room at Fairmont Le Château Frontenac

Days 7, 8 and 9

Sitting atop a bluff overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River...

You have an opportunity in Quebec City to upgrade to a Gold Floor Room (at additional cost, see Hotel Highlights below) – offering exclusive use of the Fairmont Gold Lounge on the 14th floor where there is a dedicated hotel staff. Here guests have an opportunity to enjoy complimentary coffee or tea... unwind with complimentary evening cocktails... or start the day with a healthy and bountiful continental breakfast – while enjoying magnificent views of the St. Lawrence River. Fairmont Gold River View rooms have a great view of the St. Lawrence River for a relaxing stay amidst understated elegance.

Thank you for an unforgettable wedding anniversary, the cities were spectacular and your team went above and beyond to make us feel special!

Our fifth Tauck tour brought us to Canada to learn about its history and its people, and to experience its beauty. We were not disappointed! The hotels were superb, our tour director caring, entertaining and just plain outstanding, and our fellow travelers friendly. We enjoyed the mix of tour time and private time. Who could ask for more?

Most Memorable Moment:

So many wonderful memories: Old Quebec City, cider tasting, the unleashed power of Niagara and Montmorency, and the cruise on the St. Lawrence through the Thousand Islands.

Our third Tauck tour to Canada was a delight. We once again met new friends, including two from Lubbock, Texas who had acquaintances in our hometown of Carmel, California. They will visit us in the coming year. Quebec City was the highlight of our tour. It is similar to many European towns we have visited and it was fun to use my French.

Most Memorable Moment:

Visiting Niagara Falls and Quebec City.
