  1. Day 1 Arrive Washington, D.C. (2 Nights)

    Welcome to Washington, America’s capital city and the seat of political power. Fast paced, politically charged and culturally revered, ‘DC’ is the place you’ve seen a thousand times on screens small and large. Boasting arguably America’s finest collection of museums, a vibrant Waterfront area and memorials to many of the nation’s greats, you’ve certainly chosen an iconic spot to kick off your adventure. After settling in to your hotel you’ll meet up with your Travel Director this afternoon, then why not pay a visit to bustling Georgetown for a wander round the shops and restaurants.

    hotel Courtyard Washington DC/U.S. Capitol
  2. Day 2 Washington DC Sightseeing and Free Time

    Today is all about unearthing the political and cultural highlights of this high-flying city. You’ll kick things off with a sightseeing tour that will feel more like a walk through a real-life movie set, see icons including the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the jewel in America’s political crown, the White House. Visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture on a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience. This is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, history, and culture and houses over 36,000 fascinating artifacts. And if that whets your appetite for history, maybe also choose to visit the Air and Space Museum. With the rest of the day to explore as you please, the question is really where to start? Perhaps take a walk around the Tidal Basin Loop Trail or choose experiences like visiting George Washington’s sprawling Mount Vernon Estate. This evening we then have another Optional Experience, Washington Illumination Tour, where you’ll see DC’s most famous monuments lit up in their nighttime glory.

  3. Day 3 Washington, D.C. – Lancaster (1 Night)

    Today you’ll travel back in time as we reach Pennsylvania Dutch farm country, home to America’s oldest and largest settlement of Amish people. Spot farmers working the fields with their horses and manual tools and traditional horse and buggies passing you by as you take in the beautiful rural surroundings. We’ll then meet up with a Local Specialist who will share all about the ‘plain’ lifestyle of the Amish community, who live without cars, televisions, mobile phones or modern-day appliances. You could choose to try out the traditional buggy for yourself on a ride through the back roads, or join in on an Amish family-style dinner at Good 'n' Plenty, serving authentic Pennsylvania Dutch meals since 1969.

    hotel Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square
  4. Day 4 Lancaster – Niagara Falls, Canada (2 Nights)

    Traveling northwest today, you’ll journey along the surging Susquehanna River as you cross the western region of New York State. Passing through the Appalachian Mountains and no doubt in utter awe of the scenery around you, bear in mind that this mountain range is one of the oldest on earth, formed around 480 million years ago and spanning the border between the USA and Canada.

    hotel Days Inn Niagara Falls Fallsview
  5. Day 5 Niagara Falls Sightseeing and Free Time

    This morning you’re off to visit a natural phenomenon, Niagara Falls! The biggest falls in North America, an incredible 750,000 gallons of water thunder into the gorge below every second. We’ll be getting you up close on a cruise to Horseshoe Falls, allowing you to see both the Canadian and American sides. Remember that raincoat? Now’s the time to use it.

  6. Day 6 Niagara Falls – New York City (2 Nights)

    Bidding a fond farewell to Niagara Falls this morning, you’ll journey back across the border through leafy and picturesque upstate New York. Passing by the fun to pronounce Poconos Mountains, which literally mean ‘creek between two hills’, you’ll make your way into the lush farmlands of New Jersey. Sprawling McMansions, tall pine forests and miles upon miles of coastline will keep you entertained as you venture towards the fast and fabulous metropolis of NYC. Arriving late afternoon and no doubt itching to explore, why not spend your first night here getting acquainted with the city’s foodie scene? From gourmet food trucks to Michelin Star restaurants, the city that never sleeps ensures you’ll never go hungry.

    hotel Holiday Inn New York City - Times Square
  7. Day 7 New York City Sightseeing and Free Time

    We hope you're hungry as for breakfast you're heading to an NYC institution, the Brooklyn Diner for an iconic breakfast. Fuel up on classic eggs and bacon, bagels, and coffee, then head out with our Local Specialist to discover New York through their eyes with the secrets behind some of Manhattan's most iconic sites including Broadway and fast paced Wall Street. You’ll end your tour with insider stories to share with friends back home. This afternoon, it's all about discovering New York, your way. Head over to trendy Brooklyn, catch a show on Broadway, or take your own bite out of the Big Apple with our tantalizing list of Optional Experiences. With choices like the Top of the Rock or a tasty tour of the city’s food carts, you're sure to create your perfect afternoon.

    meals Iconic Breakfast
  8. Day 8 Depart New York City

    With fond memories of spectacular waterfalls, political icons and delicious icewine still fresh in your mind, your trip will come to an end this morning. Why not head out for one final cream cheese bagel and stroll around Central Park before heading to the airport, or if you’re not ready to say goodbye just yet, why not extend your stay at the Holiday Inn New York City - Times Square for a few more days. In a city as varied and wonderful as New York, you’re never short of new things to discover.
