Itinerary Map

DAY 1 : UK - New York.

Fly to New York City where you transfer to your hotel for two nights.

DAY 2 : New York City.

The 'Big Apple' is one of the world's most exciting cities, buzzing with atmosphere and packed with fascinating sights and great shops. On today's sightseeing tour, see New York City's major attractions including Broadway, the Empire State Building, Greenwich Village, bustling Chinatown, City Hall, Wall Street and Trinity Church. This evening choose from the many fine restaurants the city has to offer or enjoy one of the famous Broadway shows.

DAY 3 : New York City - Pocono Mountains - Niagara Falls.

Leave Manhattan and head north-west through the renowned Pocono Mountains and the scenic farmlands of upstate New York. Later this afternoon, cross the border and proceed to the Canadian side of the Niagara River in the province of Ontario.

DAY 4 : Niagara Falls.

The power of Mother Nature overwhelms the senses as you marvel at Niagara Falls, one of the world's most incredible natural spectacles. In the morning enjoy an included sightseeing tour that offers spectacular views of the waterfalls from scenic points on the rim of the gorge and from the decks of the sightseeing cruise, where you will experience the thundering columns of water up close. The afternoon is free, so why not visit attractions such as the Butterfly Conservatory, Great Gorge Adventure, Botanical Gardens, Niagara Parks Greenhouse or ride the aerial cable car? NOTE: The Niagara Falls sightseeing cruise only operates between 1 April and 30 November and is subject to favourable weather and/or river conditions. Usually these conditions exist from May to the end of October. When unfavourable conditions exist, a walking tour through the scenic tunnels will be offered.

Head south-east, through the Appalachian Mountains and into the Susquehanna River Valley. Then it's on to the handsome city of Philadelphia for an overnight stay.

Afterwards, continue to the US capital and seat of government, Washington DC.
