Discover Toronto and Niagara Falls
Your September 21, 2019 Itinerary
Thank you for purchasing a ticket. Here is your detailed itinerary:
KEEP CONNECTED AND INFORMED
We have created a What's app group for all members attending the trip. Please download the app if you don't have it and join this group:
It is important to stay in touch while travelling; especially if there are any last minute changes to be announced by your guides (like bus pickup addresses), you become separated from the group or are going to be late for a rendezvous.
This what's app group will also be good for anyone in the trip to share photos, let others know of cool spots you've come across while exploring, restaurants recommendations and pretty much anything we want.
WHAT TO BRING
good walking shoes/ boots
Appropriate clothing (check the weather forecast). Bring something warm as it might get a little cool at night.
Snacks for the bus ride
Your adventurous spirit and extra money for food and souvenirs!
For this trip we have 2 departure locations and time: Ottawa University and Carleton University

The bus departs at 7.00 am sharp. Because we have a second location pickup we will not know if you haven't made it or are going to use the Carleton Univ pick up.
Don’t be late, we will not be able to wait for you and we do not want you to miss this awesome trip.
For Carleton University:
7.20 am Meet us at Leeds House Residence. We will gather by the entrance. Here you will have a chance to gather and get to know your fellow travellers before we set out.

Group challenges begin at this time! You will be asked to form teams of 4 people for an awesome game which will make your trip more fun and interesting. Check out the 'Challenges Game' section below
You have until 9 pm to explore this wonderful city. You can do it on your own or join us for a guided group walk of Downtown Toronto (approx 1.5 h). We will check out: Yonge street, the Eaton Center, Nathan Phillip Square (Great group photo here!), the entertainment district, financial district and the bustling streets in between. Want more? Why not visit Chinatown? Kensington Market? or perhaps take the ferry to the Islands and check out the best views of Toronto's skyline.
Check our "Places of Interest in Toronto" section below to familiarize yourself with the city and the many interesting places you can visit.
9 pm Meet by the CN tower, Toronto's most iconic building to go to our hotel This is the same spot where the bus dropped us off at noon. It is your responsibility to be on time. The bus is not allowed to park there, so we won't be able to wait for you.
Once we make it to the hotel we will check in. The rest of the night is yours. Enjoy it!
7:00 am- 8.45 am The hotel comes with an amazing breakfast. Make sure you have some food before we set out for Niagara falls.
9 am At this time we will check out of our hotel, put our bags in the bus and head down to Niagara Falls. You have until 2 pm to view the falls and enjoy some activities in this town.
Once we get there we recommend you do 'The Hornblower boat cruise' or 'The Journey behind the Falls'. These attractions take you as close as possible to the falls. Their cost is not included in our trip but these experiences are totally worth their price.
2 pm Meet us at the same spot where you were dropped off and board the bus. We will start our return to Ottawa.
