Booking a travel tour bus to travel through parts of Canada and the United States is possibly the best way to see the countries and some of the most fantastic sights and views in the world. Removing the stress of driving and map reading from the experience allows the traveller to sit back, relax and enjoy the sights.
There are a great many tour operators offering a wide range of packages and routes to suit any budget. Unfortunately, the routes tend to be set and may not always visit specific areas of interest to the traveller. But side trips can always be arranged if there is a set stop nearby and the time available to make the extra trip worth while.
When planning a tour, browse through the various tour information sections to pick out the routes that take in places that appeal most to a traveller. Many popular tour routes will travel through New York, Boston, Washington, then over the border into Canada and with stops in Toronto, Montreal and Niagara Falls.
With overnight stays and time to explore in many places the opportunities for sight seeing and shopping are endless. New York offers Broadway and the many entertaining live shows, as well as Central Park and Fifth Avenue with Macy and Bloomingdale stores for browsing and some expensive shopping. The views when crossing the bridge into Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty are excellent.
Washington offers many famous and historical buildings to visit, including the White House and many of the Government and State buildings display magnificent architectural features. The history and current day politics make this an important and busy city well worth visiting.
Boston is an elegant and beautiful city which has a European flavour.
There is no shortage of historical buildings and beautiful parks to visit and a wide variety of international cuisines to choose from.
Over the border into Canada and Toronto is an exciting and exhilarating city and is any shoppers paradise. It offers an eclectic range of shopping experiences with the many markets and individual traders offering everything you can think off.
Montreal is based on an island in the St Laurence River and has an interesting history and reputation which was built up during the prohibition years. Its many historical buildings and sites are worth a visit. Montreal is in the Quebec province and is famous for its French connections.
Niagara Falls which is one of the worlds most famous tourist attractions sits on the border between New York and Toronto. The falls consist of three separate water falls, each one as spectacular as the next. A visit not to be missed.
These are only a very few of the cities and historical and interesting sites that the United States and Canada have to offer and only cover a very small fraction of both countries. Travellers could spend many of their annual holidays periods on a travel tour bus and still not have seen or visited all of the places or interest in these two massive countries.
