Like your coffee with two creams and two sugars? That’s a “double-double” in neighboring Canada and don’t you forget it! Doubling the fun from Washington D.C. to Québec City, this unforgettable panorama tour of the Eastern U.S. and Canada explores the cultural and historical differences between two fascinating North American regions. From New York City to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, you’ll take a bite out of the Big Apple, taste the freedom of Philadelphia, savor the monuments and museums of Washington, D.C., and sit down to a farm-to-table dinner with an Amish family. You’ll also enjoy the refreshing mist of breathtaking Niagara Falls before immersing yourself in the varied Canadian cityscapes of Toronto, Ottawa, Montréal, and Québec City. The final course? A journey through the marvelous mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire with guided sightseeing in Boston. A scenic harbor cruise and an authentic Italian handmade cannoli in Beantown are your just desserts.

SCOTT DWORKIN

Escorting tours for more than 15 years

"In addition to leading tours all over the United States and Canada, I enjoy my travels outside of North America, including Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Originally from Connecticut, my favorite season is autumn when the stunning fall foliage transforms the area into an even more beautiful landscape. I have a particular interest in U.S. history, and really enjoy connecting the places we visit on tour with stories from the past and contemporary issues of the present."
