Tour Itinerary

Our Classic Mid-Atlantic adventure both surprises and delights. From chasing the bright lights in New York City to getting up close to the howling spray of Niagara Falls, get ready to experience an eclectic mix of cultures across ten enlightening days. You'll stay at the best addresses, including the esteemed Mayflower Hotel. This elegant joint has been dubbed Washington D.C.'s second-best address, after the White House no less. Meanwhile, award-winning dinners will keep you fueled throughout your journey, as you enjoy upscale twists on some tasty classics.

Day 1 - A Monumental Time in Washington, D.C.
Welcome to Washington, D.C., the nation's capital and a haven for history and art buffs alike.

For a full view of this monumental city, ascend to the Top of the Rock – the 70th floor of the Rockefeller Building – for a sweeping view of the skyscrapers, parks, rivers and urban canyons that make up the teeming isle of Manhattan. If it’s tranquillity you’re after, relish the calm of Central Park, an expansive space designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted.
