Overview

For the 47th year, Webb Tours is offering our popular Fall Foliage Spectacular.   As you read this brochure take note of the mixture of activities and destinations.  We have combined fascinating cities, quaint coastal villages, spectacular natural beauty with stylish accommodations and incredible dining experiences – 21 meals (most in spectacular dining settings). The fall colors are icing on the cake!

And then there’s the history.  Eastern Canada is one of the world’s most intriguing destinations.  Not just for its beauty, but for its past.  The conflict between the English and the French began in the seventeenth century and continues to the present.  That conflict has had a profound impact on our country.  We’ll explore the fascinating history and cultures as we travel from English Canada to French Canada and to Maritime Canada.  If you’ve been looking for a perfect, comprehensive fall vacation, you’ve found it!  This tour includes two nights in Quebec and two nights in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, and one night in the other places we visit.    It is one of our most popular tours every year and we GUARANTEE a great experience.

Itinerary

Sept 24, 2023: Salt Lake City to Niagara Falls.  This morning, with great anticipation, we board our plane for Buffalo, NY.  Our air-conditioned, restroom and DVD equipped bus will be waiting to take us to our hotel in nearby Niagara Falls, Canada.  After we freshen up, we’ll take you to a delightful and delicious dinner high atop the iconic Skylon Tower with views of the falls. It’s a perfect way to start our tour. D  (PASSPORT IS PREFERRED, but it is possible to enter Canada with Birth Certificate and picture ID).

Sept 25:  Niagara Falls to Kingston, Ontario.  This morning we’ll see what we missed last night around the falls.  You’ll have time to ride the Maid of the Mist, walk behind the falls, or just do your own thing.   At about 11:00,we’ll drive to nearby Niagara on the Lake where you’ll have time for lunch and browsing in this CHARMING town on Lake Ontario. As we leave, we’ll pass through Toronto on our way to Kingston where we will spend the night. B

Sept 26:  Kingston to Ottawa.  We’re in for a treat this morning as we board a comfortable boat for a scenic cruise through the Thousand Islands.  This is where the St. Lawrence River meets the Great Lakes, creating a scenic playground for rich and famous that is fun to explore.   We’ll cruise by the lovely Boldt Castle (on Heart Island) and share one of history’s greatest loves stories.  The scenery and setting in the fall are breathtaking.   From there, it’s a short drive into Ottawa, Canada’s charming capitol city.  We’ll arrive in time for lunch in the interesting Byward Market area.  After lunch, our local guide will meet us and show us some of the sights of the city.  You’ll love the parkways along the Rideaux Canal, the grounds of the Governor General’s residence, the Parliament Buildings, and much more. Ottawa is one of Canada’s most beautiful cities and a very pleasant place to visit. Dinner is included tonight at a local restaurant. B, D

Sept 27:  Ottawa to Montreal to Quebec  This morning we head out for Montreal.  We’ll be there before noon (it’s a two hour drive).  Montreal is Canada’s largest city and is home to interesting history and some spectacular views.   We’ll go directly to the very interesting St. Joseph’s Oratory, perched atop Mount Real.  The church and the setting are stunning.  On the way into town, we’ll enjoy the view from Mount Royal where you can see the entire city and the St. Lawrence Seaway.  Lunch is on your own in the famous Underground Montreal, a sprawling city under the city.  In the afternoon, we’ll enjoy a scenic drive toward Quebec.  It is late September and today we may begin to see the fall colors as we travel further north into Quebec.  After checking into the hotel, we’ll take you into the walled city where you can get dinner this evening.  Few cities, if any, enjoy more charm and ambiance than Old Quebec City.  It is one of the world’s greatest cities because of its majestic setting (a walled city on the St. Lawrence), fascinating culture, and critical history.  The beginnings of the fall colors provide a spectacular backdrop as we enjoy the scenes.  We’ll be here two nights.  Quebec is one of the world’s unique and “must see” destinations.  

Sept 28: Quebec City.  Today we will enjoy a guided tour of Quebec including the Plains of Abraham, the Walled City (including a short walking tour of the old town), Place Royal, the colorful Farmer’s Market and more.   In addition, we’ll see the lovely Isle of Orleans which is lovely in the fall (oozing with charm).  We’ll enjoy a memorable lunch at  Le Chateau Frontenac, Canada’s most famous building, as it overlooks this impressive city on the St. Lawrence River   After lunch, you’ll have a couple of hours to look in the unique shops, walk along the river or explore the walled city.  Later, we’ll travel along the St. Lawrence River to see Montmorency Falls followed by a visit to Chez Marie’s for a slice of hot bread and maple butter in a delightful fall setting. Some other surprises today as  well. We guarantee that you will love Quebec City.   We’ll stay in the same hotel again tonight. B, L

Sept 29:  Quebec City to Moncton.  We’ll spend most of the day in the province of New Brunswick.  The countryside is pleasant with tree covered hills in all directions. By mid day, the people change from French back to English.  We’ll pass through quaint towns of Riviere du Loup, Notre Dame du Lac and into Grand Falls where we’ll have lunch.  New Brunswick is miles and miles of lovely scenery in every direction.  In nearby Hartland, we’ll see the world’s longest covered bridge.  The afternoon drive will take us via Fredericton into Moncton, New Brunswick.  As the Revolutionary War continued in the states, many English Loyalists fled north and settled in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.  Today is mostly a drive day, but we have enjoyable DVD’s and other fun things planned as we enjoy the scenery.  B

Sept 30:  Moncton to Prince Edward Island.  Today it’s off to Prince Edward Island.  A bridge makes it easy to get onto the island (we’re 70 minutes away).  Prince Edward Island was made famous by Anne of Green Gables and you’ll instantly fall in love with the lush green countryside by the sea, very similar to Scotland & England.  Endless potato fields, red-sand coastline and quaint villages dot the rolling landscape.  We’ll be joined by a local guide who will show us the island this afternoon.  Part of the tour includes a visit to the home made famous by Lucy Maude Montgomery’s novels about life at Green Gables.  We’ll also walk on the sandy beaches enjoying the views and red cliffs.  We’ll also stop along the River Clyde to enjoy some PEI Preserves in a lovely setting. Tonight we’ll enjoy LOBSTER at Fisherman’s Wharf in Rustico on the bay. The ocean side setting is delightful.  If you don’t like lobster, other items are available.   We stay on the island tonight. B, D

Oct 1 :   Charlottetown to Halifax:  This morning we’ll drive to the southern end of the island (with more incredible scenery) and take a ferry ride into Nova Scotia which means “New Scotland”.  It’s a ninety minute drive into Halifax.   After lunch, our friend, we will show you around Halifax and the surrounding area.   The Public Gardens, the Harbor, The Citadel and Titanic graves will be some of the highlights of the tour.  After a break at the hotel, we drive about 45 minutes to one of the most beautiful spots on earth:  Peggy’s Cove.   The lighthouse still stands in the midst of the huge granite boulders that line the rugged shore.  We’ll enjoy dinner at the Sou’Wester Restaurant overlooking the ocean, the lighthouse and, hopefully, a spectacular sunset. It is a perfect spot that you won’t forget.  B, D

Oct 2:  Halifax to St. John.  Today we will follow the Evangeline Trail to the nearby Grand Pre National Historic Park.  This was the home of the Acadians and their people before they were harshly deported by the British.  The story, the new visitor’s center and the chapel are very touching and enjoy a lovely setting.  Their story is very interesting, and a MUST SEE in this part of Canada.  Lunch today is about 30 minutes away right on the Bay of Fundy. The little town is called Hall’s Harbour and we’ll have a fun fish and chips lunch followed by an interesting tour of the “Lobster Pound” to learn about these interesting creatures (and hold a big one if  you’re interested).  We’ll continue to Digby for a little browsing time before taking a two hour ferry across the Bay of Fundy to St. John, New Brunswick.  B. L

Oct 3:  St. John to Bar Harbor.  Today we’ll drive 45 minutes and make a stop in the charming town of St. Martins with its lighthouse and two covered bridges.  Just up the road is the entrance to Fundy National Park.  This intimate park (21 miles) showcases magnificent coastal scenery overlooking the Bay of Fundy.  Sheer cliffs jutting into the ocean (like Clilffs of Moher in Ireland), pristine waterfalls and sweeping views make this a day to remember.  Lunch is at the famous St. Marten Sea Caves, another fascinating natural formation.  In the afternoon, we’ll enjoy a scenic drive along the bay toward beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine.  We cross the border at St. Stephen and stay in Ellsworth, Maine.  B

Oct 4: Maine to New Hampshire We are just 30 minutes from impressive Acadia National Park. Nowhere else along the Atlantic Sea Coast is the “stern and rockbound coast” so rugged and beautiful.  We’ll make some interesting stops in the park (blowhole, Sand Beach, Jordan’s Pond and others).  Before leaving the park, we will drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain which, at 3,000 feet, provides a spectacular view in all directions.   We’ll have a time for browsing and lunch on charming Main Street in Bar Harbor before we head west toward New Hampshire.  It is a beautiful fall drive as we make our way across Maine along scenic route 2 into Gorham, New Hampshire.  We’ll arrive about 6:00 and check into The Town and Country Inn. The inn sits at the foot of tree-covered mountains with tree-covered hills as far as the eye can see.  This evening will be treated to a New England style dinner at the inn.  There’s no better way to experience New England in the Fall!  B, D

Oct 5:  New Hampshire.  Welcome to the heart of New England!  There is much to see in New Hampshire.  We have lots of surprises in store today.  The exact itinerary depends on where the fall colors are most vibrant and what the weather is.  We have been in this area many times and we have lots of great options.  At some point in the day, we’ll cross into Vermont for a stop at the Maple Syrup Museum.  We’ll learn about the process and enjoy some time in their popular gift shop.  We’ll visit the STUNNING views of the Mount Washington Valley – one of the great fall scenes in all of New England, including Silver Flume and the Crawford Notch.  We’ll be back at the hotel by 5:00 so you’ll have some time to relax or walk in the foliage. B, D

Oct 6:  New Hampshire to Boston.  This morning we will enjoy another spectacular fall foliage drive (although yesterday’s scenery is tough to beat).  This morning we’ll drive along the Kancamangus Highway which is a 45 minute stretch of incredible fall vistas.  We’ll make several picture stops along the way including a perfect covered bridge, rocky scenic gorge and a wonderful 20 minute stroll through the foliage to scenic Sabbaday Falls.  We’ll have a picnic lunch while we’re there.   After exiting the highway, we’ll drive down the interstate to Boston.   We’ll see Lexington and Concord this afternoon.  B, L

Oct 7:  Boston to Salt Lake. Today we continue to visit key American history sights on the Freedom Trail including the Old North Church, the Paul Revere Home, Bunker Hill and more.  We have an excellent local guide who brings history to life.  We’ll enjoy lunch and browsing at the famous Quincy Market.   Then, it is on to the airport for our flight home. B
