Day 1: Toronto – Kingston – Ottawa – Montreal

Depart Toronto in the early morning to Kingston, the city with 300 years of history. Kingston is a Canadian city on Lake Ontario, at the mouth of the Cataraqui and St. Lawrence rivers. It’s known as the “Limestone City” for its grand 19th-century buildings, including the lakeside Kingston City Hall. The grand house and gardens of the Bellevue House National Historic Site commemorate Canada’s first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald. Fort Henry, built in the 1800s, holds military demonstrations. Pass by the oldest locomotive and Government buildings then view the only Royal Military College, commonly abbreviated as RMCC or RMC, is the military college of the Canadian Armed Forces, and is a degree-granting university training military officers. Queen’s University is a public research university in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Founded on 16 October 1841 via a royal charter issued by Queen Victoria, the university predates Canada’s founding by 26 years. Then visit first prime Minister’s residence – Bellevue House National Historic Site of Canada was the home to Canada’s first Prime Minister Sir John Alexander Macdonald from 1848 to 1849. Bellevue House was constructed around 1840 for Charles Hales, a wealthy Kingston merchant who profited greatly from the prosperous decade of the 1830s. The house, which is located at 35 Centre St. between Union and King streets, is one of the first examples of Italian Villa architecture in Canada. Sir John A. Macdonald moved into the house with his wife Isabella Clark and their son John Alexander in 1848.

After discovering Kingston, proceed to Ottawa – the capital city of Canada. Pass by Parliament Hill, the residences of Governor General and Prime Minster & etc. Explore Canadian Museum of History (Fee applied), formerly the Canadian Museum of Civilization, is Canada’s national museum of human history. It is located in the Hull area of Gatineau, Quebec, directly across the Ottawa River from Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario. The museum’s primary purpose is to collect, study, preserve, and present material objects that illuminate the human history of Canada and the cultural diversity of its people. In October 2012, it was announced that the museum would be renamed from the Canadian Museum of Civilization to the Canadian Museum of History, with an increased focus on Canadian history and people. The name change became official when the Canadian Museum of History Act received Royal Assent on December 12, 2013. Changes to the museum’s visual identity were implemented gradually over the course of the following months.

After dinner, transfer to hotel in Montreal and enjoy the rest of the evening with the city’s amazing night life.

Day 2: Montreal – Quebec

In the morning, proceed to Notre Dame Basilica (Donation applied, subject to availability) – the epic symbol of French Culture. Built in the Gothic Revival style, the church is highly decorated. The vaults are colored deep blue and decorated with golden stars, and the rest of the sanctuary is  decorated in blues, azures, reds, purples, silver, and gold. It is filled with hundreds of intricate wooden carvings and several religious statues. Unusual for a church, the stained glass windows along the walls of the sanctuary do not depict biblical scenes, but rather scenes from the religious history of Montreal. It also has a Casavant Frères pipe organ, dated 1891, which comprises four keyboards, 92 stops using electro-pneumatic action and an adjustable combination system, 7000 individual pipes and a pedal board.

Next, visit St. Joseph’s Oratory which is located at Mount Royal (Donation applied, mandatory), it is a Roman Catholic minor basilica and national shrine on Mount Royal’s Westmount Summit in Montreal, Quebec. It is Canada’s largest church and claims to have one of the largest domes in the world. The basilica enshrines a statue of Saint Joseph, which was authorized a Canonical coronation by Pope Pius X on 19 March 1910 via Cardinal Vincenzo Vannutelli (extinct) and another from an Apostolic brief dated 9 July 1955 by Pope Pius XII who crowned the new statue on 9 August 1955 via Cardinal Paul-Émile Léger now located within its crypt department. The shrine is also famous due to its association with Brother Andre Bessette  who was believed to possess healing powers through his Josephian devotion with its notable oil ointment given freely to its believers.

Then, explore Olympia village which is a twin-tower structure, built as the athletes’ residence for the 1976 Summer Olympics. Designed by  architects Roger D’Astous and Luc Durand, it was built massively over budget by a consortium of architects, including Joseph Zappia, who was later convicted of fraud in connection with his involvement with the building. Construction was overseen by René Lépine, Chairman of Groupe Lépine, and his associates through the company Zarolega Inc. Construction overruns were so drastic that the Olympic Installations Board seized the complex after its original estimate of $30 million ballooned to $90 million.

Visit Montreal tower (Fee applied). At 165 meters high with a 45-degree angle, the Montreal Tower is the tallest inclined tower in the world. It is an architectural masterpiece, and the secret to its extraordinary tilt can be found in its complex internal structure. The glass-encased funicular brings visitors on a breathtaking two-minute ride to the top of the Tower. This one-of-a-kind funicular can hold up to 50 passengers and is the only one in the world built along a curved structure. The view of Montreal from the Tower’s Observatory is stunning in any season.

Arrived at Quebec City in the afternoon, you can experience the French culture and the historical significance of Quebec City along with its military presence. After dinner, accommodation at local hotel.

Day 3: Quebec – Thousand Islands – Toronto

Visit one of Canada’s most astonishing natural scenery – Thousand Islands which are a group of more than 1,800 islands in the St. Lawrence River, straddling the border of the U.S. and Canada. A fashionable retreat for the elite in the late 19th century, today the area is a hub for outdoor activities. It’s home to elaborate island mansions such as the German-style Boldt Castle on Heart Island, and Singer Castle on Dark Island, with its Gothic windows and secret passageways. You can enjoy a pleasant boat cruise (Fee applied) to discover the various islands through the narrow waterways. After visiting Thousand Islands, transfer back to Toronto and expect to arrive in the evening.

Finish fantastic tour!
