The World Next Door

Our Canada’s Capital Cities plus Niagara Falls vacation explores 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 Farimont hotels in the heart of the cities like The Fairmont Royal York, Fairmont Château Laurier, Fairmont Le Château Frontenac and Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth allow more time to explore what makes each city so special. Enjoy a Tauck-Exclusive private, after-hours docent-led tour of the Royal Ontario Museum followed by a reception and dinner, a luncheon cruise along the St. Lawrence River through the Thousand Islands, views of Niagara Falls, a visit to a Quebecois sugar-shack and more during this 10-day trip.

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!

Small Group Departures

Our small group departures, averaging just 24 guests, are designed for travelers who want more time to experience each destination up close and personally. One of the benefits of small group travel is the personalized service and attention you’ll enjoy. Small groups enable our Tauck Directors to spend more time in the places you explore with more opportunities to connect with them. Smaller groups foster camaraderie and lasting friendships among like-minded travelers; you'll engage more closely with local experts and enjoy enhanced insider access, ease of travel and freedom to linger longer.

Solo Traveler Savings

Traveling solo doesn't mean traveling alone – with Tauck, it means camaraderie on a journey with like-minded travelers who share similar interests, enjoying the spirit of travel that makes exploring the world a necessary part of life – and sharing the special travel experiences found on Tauck’s guided land trips and cruises that create lifetime memories. For 90+ years, solo travelers have found a special "travel" home with Tauck in destinations the world over – and we’re offering solo travelers an additional reason to travel with Tauck – special Solo Traveler Savings on select departures.

Airport Transfers Included

Upon arrival and departure, transfers to and from your hotel are included as noted.

What you need to know

Before You Go


Travel Documents, Booking and Deposits, and more

No matter where your destination may be, you should bring identification with you; a valid passport is always an appropriate form of identification. Contact your booking agent for information about all necessary documents required for your journey, such as passport and visa information or documentation required for transportation security measures.

Important Information

Health and Activity

You'll find Activity and Pace Levels on all of our trips to give you a better idea of physical activity level – higher numbers mean a more active journey. To fully enjoy most journeys, you should be in good health and able to walk reasonable distances; some of the most memorable sightseeing can only be accomplished on foot and may include unpaved and uneven surfaces. Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.

Protect Your Travel Investment

Deposit Protection Plan

Deposit Protection Plan – Tauck provides a “Deposit Protection Plan” at a cost of AUD $75 per person per tour or cruise. The cost is non-refundable and non-transferable and must be paid at the time of booking with your deposit. It only applies when you cancel your tour or cruise prior to final payment date. The deposit held in credit will exclude fees imposed by third parties in relation to air, rail travel, hotels, transfer or applicable cruise cabins. When booking airfares through Tauck (including when taking advantage of a special offer that includes air travel), standard airline cancellation fees will apply. In some cases, airfares will be non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, these fees will be deducted from the deposit paid, and therefore the credit being held. We will only credit the remainder of deposit to a future tour or cruise booking if you book within 24 months of cancellation of the original Tauck tour or cruise. This offer expires after the 24 months. We will only credit the remainder of the deposit to a future tour or cruise booking Balance Due and it can’t be used as a credit for the initial deposit of a future tour or cruise booking. The Tauck “Deposit Protection Plan” only covers a Tauck tour or cruise and it does not replace Travel Insurance, which we recommend at the time of booking.

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.
