Our tailormade itinerary Experience Toronto, Niagara Falls and Ottawa by Rail was so popular, that we decided to make it even better and add in a few days to discover the beautiful Thousand Islands region. On this holiday you will explore the beautiful province of Ontario but without having to drive or join an escorted tour. It’s an independent tour, you’ll be travelling from place to place by train and enjoying all sorts of cruises along the way.

Next board a VIA Rail train for the journey to Canada’s capital city Ottawa and discover why this is one of our favourite city’s with impressive parliament buildings, lively downtown and lovely riverside parks. Then it’s onto historic Kingston, established in the 17th century and located on Lake Ontario at the mouth of the St. Lawrence river, where you will take a lovely lunch cruise through the Thousand Islands. You’ll return to Toronto by train ready for your flight home. (Tailormade/JV)

Day 1

Fly to Toronto

Toronto hotel: Chelsea Hotel, Toronto or upgrade to Fairmont Royal York

Day 2


A full day to explore Toronto and a great place to start is the top of the CN Tower where you can have a birds-eye view of the city and Lake Ontario, and you might choose to enjoy lunch in the 360 degree revolving restaurant. In the afternoon, you can choose to take a cruise around Toronto harbour and the islands and enjoy wonderful views of the city skyline. We can book these excursions for you (and more) for an extra charge.

Day 3


Another day to enjoy the city at your leisure. You may want to visit the Ice Hockey Hall of Fame or enjoy some shopping along Robson Street. Perhaps take an afternoon stroll to the Distillery District to browse its independent boutiques and galleries, followed by a drink in a cool bar, followed by dinner in one of the great restaurants in this neighbourhood.

Day 4

Day trip to Niagara Falls

Today is a full day trip to Niagara Falls and the surrounding region and you’ll be picked up by coach from your hotel in the morning. On arrival you will have chance to view the vast waterfalls and get those all-important photos, and then you’ll board a cruise to get up close to the falls themselves. Next you’ll enjoy a delicious lunch at the Fallsview Restaurant overlooking the Falls. Later in the afternoon you’ll be taken to “Canada’s Prettiest Town” – Niagara on the Lake – where you’ll have free time to explore the lovely boutiques and perhaps try out some of the local wine in one of the many winery tasting rooms (extra charge).

Day 5

Toronto to Ottawa

In the morning make your way to Union Station to board your train to Ottawa which takes just over four hours. Standard class is included in this holiday which has comfy seats and free wifi, but remember to buy your lunch at the station before you depart (there’s plenty of great food stalls to choose from). Or we can upgrade you to business class, where you’ll have complimentary food and beverages. The route takes you along Lake Ontario and the St Lawrence River, before heading inland to Ottawa and the station in Tramblay Road. Take the 10 minute taxi ride (not included) to your chosen hotel and enjoy an evening in Downtown Ottawa.

Ottawa hotel: Lord Elgin Hotel or upgrade to the landmark hotel the Fairmont Chateau Laurier

Day 6


Ottawa is one of our favourite Canadian cities and there is so much to do here, with a vast array of museums and galleries, shopping districts and riverside parks. We can book you onto a hop-on hop-off bus tour, guided bike ride or a walking tour and pre-book you entry tickets into the museums (extra charge).

Day 7


Today we suggest you take a cruise in and around the city (at a supplement), and you can choose between the Rideau Canal or the Ottawa River, both taking an hour and a half. Either glide along the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in an electric passenger vessel. Or cruise the Ottawa River and enjoy views of Parliament Hill and the Prime Minister’s Residence.

Day 8

Ottawa to Kingston

Make your way to the station and board your train to Kingston which will take around two hours.
One of Canada’s oldest city’s, Kingston was established in 1673 and was once used as a French trading post. It’s a very walkable city, where hidden alleyways contain antique markets and restaurant patios, and there are dozens of museums and historic sites.

Enjoy a leisurely morning exploring more of this charming city, and then stroll to Crawford Dock where you will board your cruise boat for a tour of the beautiful Thousand Islands.
