Detailed Itinerary

Thank you for your interest in this trip.

Please note that this is a generic detailed itinerary and might change slightly on a per trip basis. 

DAY ONE

Meet us at 90 University Private, Ottawa, K1N 6N5. This is a residence building on the University of Ottawa campus [See our map below]. The Ottawa Residences Building is right in front of a big parking lot where our bus will pick us up. Here you will have a chance to gather and get to know your fellow travellers before we set out.

The bus departs early in the morning. Make sure you are at the departure location on time, we will not be able to wait for you and we do not want you to miss this awesome trip.

We will cross the American Border. For a smooth transition you must have with you the appropriate travel document(s): passport, Visa and $6 US dollars cash -if needed. You should expect to get off the bus and go through the border crossing process where the authorities will review your travel documents and personal belongings.

After being admitted to the US, get back on the bus, relax and continue the journey. 

In the afternoon we'll arrive to our hotel, The Red Roof Plus Inn (or similar), and check in. Board the bus again and let's start the adventure by going to Manhattan!


We'll be dropped off at Times Square! Take some time to wonder freely around this part of town. We will make recommendations as to where to eat and what to do. You have 3 hours before our next meeting point.

Meet up at the time agreed with your guide at the same point where we were dropped off. We will take public transit and head back to our hotel.

DAY TWO

 

Today we will visit Manhattan's mid-town.

 

We will arrive at Times Square once again. We will take an awesome group photo and start our activities.  Times Square is located in Mid-Town Manhattan and it is the perfect place to buy tickets for Broadway shows, or to many great attractions.

There is lots to see in this section of NYC: Empire State building, flat iron building, iconic Chrysler building, Madam Tussauds museum, Rockefeller centre, 5th avenue, Grenwich Village and so much more. Join our group walk or set out on your own. Either way you will have tons of free time to discover this amazing part of NYC.​

 

You will have all day to explore this part of town. At night we will meet again at Times Square and get ready to board the bus, which will take us back to our hotel for a well deserved rest. You do not need to wait for the bus if you want to get back to the hotel earlier than the arranged time. You are welcome to get back on your own, just inform your guide ahead of time.
