, plus 1 nights' accommodations at the Halifax Marriott Harborview
(or similar) in Nova Scotia.
Most onshore sightseeing during your will be on air-conditioned coaches with guides, along with sightseeing boat tours in Niagara Falls and Tadoussac. Walking is easy on flat, often paved surfaces.
Focus is on the cultures and traditions of the different groups of hardy people who settled along the rugged Canadian Maritimes. You'll experience the unique French-Canadian culture of Québec and Montréal, explore British-influenced Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Your tours of such regions as Prince Edward Island's serene North Shore and Québec's remote Gaspé Peninsula will give you an appreciation for the skills it took to earn a living from these scenic lands.
WHAT TO PACK:
We suggest warm, casual clothing with good walking shoes. Weather is never predictable, so be sure to be prepared for just about anything. You'll want to take along a sweater or jacket for cool evenings, even in the summer months. It's a good idea to dress in layers, which will allow you to adjust to changes in temperature with the changes in elevation.
