Fly from UK to New York
Arrive in New York City and gaze up at the towering skyscrapers or, for a different perspective, ascend to the Top of the Rock and look down to the grid of bustling streets below. You’ll have time to explore the New York with your 72-hour Freestyle pass, taking in iconic sights such as the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Top of the Rock and Brooklyn Bridge. And don’t forget to try a few of the world-class restaurants – from sushi to pizza and burgers to lobster, it’s all here.
Hit the streets of Montreal, Canada’s second largest city and the second largest French speaking city in the world after Paris. Check out the photogenic Old Port, filled with leafy green spaces and peaceful cafés, as well as the spectacular Notre-Dame Basilica, with its impressive gothic revival architecture. Make the most of the city’s francophone heritage at the numerous bakeries, cafes and restaurants, and do not leave without trying poutine, a tasty combination of chips, cheese and gravy.
Fly on to Toronto and the raging torrent of Niagara Falls. Choose to take a cruise, walk or drive to the viewpoints or take to the skies and soar high above the spray of this mighty waterfall in a helicopter, when on a clear day you’ll take in views as far as Toronto and Lake Erie. Be sure to observe the cascades after dark as well, because the water is illuminated various bright colours and in summer there are frequent fireworks displays. For something a bit different, try the locally produced ice wines, either on a tasting tour or just order a glass with your meal.
Continue to Washington DC, the US capital. From Capitol Hill and the Smithsonian to the Lincoln Memorial and the White House, DC is home to some of the USA’s most significant landmarks, which you can visit on your Old Town trolley tour. But it’s not just history and heritage – try Washington DC’s world-class dining and nightlife scene and shop up a storm in the designer shopping precincts of Penn Quarter and Georgetown.
