Eastern Canada

From Ontario to Prince Edward Island, explore East Coast Canada and its beautiful provinces with Vacation By Rail's train tours. These journeys can include escorted tours of Eastern Canada or well-crafted independent rail vacations and self-drive tours. Tour packages highlight incredible landmarks and include time in fantastic cities throughout the East. Visit Toronto to see the CN Tower, the world's tallest free-standing structure, which offers remarkable views of the city, or travel to nearby Niagara Falls for a ride aboard the famous Hornblower. Venture to Canada's capital city, Ottawa, to see the Parliament Buildings, Embassies, and Rideau Falls. Explore Canada's "cultural capital," Montreal, for excellent shopping, dining, and sightseeing, including Notre-Dame Basilica and historic Old Montreal. The panoramic views from Mount Royal in Montreal are quite impressive, as well. Further East in Quebec City, admire the 17th-century architecture while strolling along cobblestone streets and exploring the quaint shops. The old-world French atmosphere here is undeniable.

Moving even further toward the East Coast, Canadian Maritime tours introduce guests to destinations like Moncton, where you can drive up Magnetic Hill and visit the Bay of Fundy. Journey to the harbor city of Halifax, visit Peggy's Cove or explore Lunenburg. Saint John's famous Reversing Falls are simply breathtaking. No trip to the Maritimes is complete without visiting the location that inspired Anne of Green Gables, Prince Edward Island.

With 20 Eastern Canada tours to choose from, including those that depart from New York in the United States, travelers are spoiled for choice when it comes to vacation options.

“This was my first time travelling by Rail and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The ease of getting on and off the train with my luggage was simple, the cabin was spacious and I could spread out with my personal items and enjoy the ride. I look forward to scheduling another trip by Rail.

“With the exception of one lodging accommodations, they were all very good. The solution to the poor accommodations was handled promptly and with great care by Eric, and I greatly appreciate his help. The main concern I had with regard to the train portion of the trip was the size of the sleeping berth. As I am 6’-5”, I was not prepared for the close quarters. For two people and carry on bags, it was very tight and uncomfortable. However, the train personnel were very accommodating and cheerful and did much to make our trip pleasurable. It was helpful having a dining car and lounge area available as well. We did have several delays (2-3 hours) during the train trip which made for a long ride but delays I am sure are expected. Overall, the trip was enjoyable for both my wife and me. If I do consider another rail vacation, like the cross Canadian trip, I will have to take a close look at the sleeping accommodations and other amenities.

SCOTT MILLARD SMALL
4 stars
“Cruise was very good. Holland America a great partner to utilize in future tour packages. After cruise accommodations were wonderful (we upgraded). Our major disappointment was the total lack of tour guide/director after the cruise ended. We were completely on our own to navigate getting to train stations, etc. We didn't necessarily expect to be held by the hand, but even a person waiting for us after we disembarked to direct us to the hotel, or a meeting place at the train station to be helpful as we needed some assistance since we were tourists (foreigners) in a strange location. Very disappointed there wasn't some "point people" from Great Rails Journey to touch base with us along the way.

“Lovely scenery but the schedule needs refining because the train is always running late - I believe it’s only temporary due to ongoing rail upgrades and maintenance but it makes the schedule too tight for things to proceed smoothly.
