Overview

  • 360 Tower with TILT experience, Chicago
  • Night illumination tour, Washington, DC
  • Voyage to the Falls boat tour, Niagara Falls

Short Description

Ah, the US of A. Its anthem echoes, ‘and of the free’ – and freedom is exactly what you’ll experience on this epic road trip. Starting and ending with the bright lights of New York City, you’ll visit some of the US and Canada’s most iconic and picture-worthy hot spots including Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto, and Washington, DC. Think: Fenway Park in Boston, a gangster tout tracking the likes of Al Capone in Chicago and Cleveland, home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Two amazing countries in one incredible trip? Yes, please.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

Buckle up! We’re heading to a city that was key to the American Revolution and Independence movement. To sweeten the deal, we hear Boston cream pie is on the must-eat list. Get friendly with this impressive city on a driving tour before rounding off day one with an included dinner with the crew.

Included today:
-Driving tour of Boston

Meals:

Day 2

A free day to do Boston your way. We’ve got a couple of optionals for you: pay a visit to Fenway Park (home of the Red Sox), or take to two wheels on a city bike tour. Fancy a walk? Well, we’ve got good news for you: the chances of finding yourself face-to-face with historically significant sites are high.

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Bike tour of Boston
-Fenway Ballpark tour

Day 3

Quebec City is one of North America’s oldest settlements. True story. Wander its cobblestone streets, gaze up at its towering spires and you could be forgiven for thinking you’re somewhere in Europe. On tonight’s menu: an optional spine-tingling ghost tour of the city. Spooky.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Ghost tour of Quebec

Day 4

Au revoir, Quebec – we’re swapping you out for Montreal today. Make sure all of your clothes are elasticated, because this place packs some seriously delicious cuisine. Love living life to the full? Well, so does Montreal. We think you’ll get on great.

Meals:

Day 5

Today, it’s all about you. Satisfy your inner gastronome and sample some of the city’s finest eats on an optional food tour (we recommend the St Viateur bagels), or take on the Lachine Rapids with some optional jet boating (spoiler alert: you will get wet).

Set your sights on Toronto today – but first, we’ll be making a pit stop in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. When we reach T-dot, we’ve got a walking tour to get involved in, so limber up. Tonight, swing by some of Kensington’s bars and clubs for a slice of Toronto’s famous nightlife.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Toronto

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Day 7

How you spend today is your call. Want some ideas? Well, you could check out the Ice Hockey Hall of Fame or the extra pointy CN Tower. Toronto is the most multiculturally diverse city on the planet, so brush up on your language skills – you never know who you could meet!

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 8

Never want your time in Canada to end? Well, we’ve got one last stop north of the border before we make tracks to the States, so make it count. Take in the sheer eye-popping force of the legendary Niagara Falls on a Voyage to the Falls boat tour before we hit Rock City (that’s Detroit to you and me).

Included today:
-Voyage to the Falls boat tour

Meals:
-Breakfast

Day 9

Hello, Chicago! We’re kicking things off in Chi-Town with a driving tour, so prep your peepers for landmarks aplenty. Want some OMG optionals to make your stay complete? No problemo. We’ve got optional bike hire, architecture river cruises, helicopter rides – heck, we’ve even got an optional gangster tour to get down and dirty with. To cap things off, we’ve got a group visit to the 360 Chicago Tower Observatory (with included TILT experience) to look forward to. You’re welcome.

Meals:

Chicago, it’s been fun. Today it’s up and onwards to Cleveland – the centre of the universe for all things rock and roll (this place is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame).

Day 14

After a driving tour through Philly, there’s some free time to track down lunch (cheesesteak recommended). Then, we roll into the city that never sleeps. Our trip might be over, but you’d be bananas for leaving the Big Apple.

Amazing staff who are very friendly and also extremely knowledgeable. My trip was amazing and I enjoyed every minute of it. I did the Spirit of Europe last year and couldn’t recommend Topdeck enough.

I jumped on this tour with very little notice and planning, and I was thoroughly impressed. Our Topdeck trip leader was very knowledgeable, fun, and adjusted the trip to the group (34 people). The meals provided were delicious, and they worked hard to cater to dietary needs. Accommodations were good, typically with 2-6 people in a hostel room. Keep in mind they are hostels, not hotels (bring your own towel).

I loved the itinerary, as it highlighted the must-see places and had variety (ex. Paris, Rome vs. Switzerland). The optionals in each city were all wonderful. However, many were not presented in the Topdeck literature online and were not introduced on the trip more than a day in advance. All are paid for in cash (Euros). Because of how the optionals were presented, it was a bit harder to budget. I would recommend inquiring more about the optionals when booking and at the beginning of your tour via your trip leader. Don't feel pressured to do all of them and remember to keep your own interests in mind.

The solo travelers easily found others with similar interests to explore with. For many on this trip, drinking and going out to bars/clubs was a major component (as alcohol is often cheaper than water). Because of the shortness of this tour along with all the destinations, prepare for lots of driving and to make the most of the time you have in each city.

This trip provided am amazing sampling of Western Europe and opened my eyes to cultures and history I was unfamiliar with. Overall, I would highly recommend this itinerary and touring company, as it provided a good balance between budget and experiences.

P.S. Stay flexible with plans, but some of the popular sights need more pre-planning than expected, like the Eiffel Tower and the Anne Frank House (Amsterdam).

Overall amazing value. Food, particularly by Topdeck staff, excellent. Spontaneous/flexible; be prepared to pay for lots of extra excursions, on and off your itinerary, in cash.

Food was excellent. Accomodations were better than expected: hostels, but usually with in-suite bathrooms and always only with other members of your tour of the same gender. Don't try to overplan; trip is quite spontaneous and flexible and you won't know much about the schedule/optionals for each city more than a day or so in advance. Optionals will be plentiful and paid in cash. Only do those that are right for you, even if your trip leader really encourages them and most other people are going. These trips are great for solo travelers, but make sure you find people interested in the same things as you...it will probably be easy to find groups to go to bars and clubs with in the evenings, but harder to find people who prefer other evening plans. Driver was excellent and bus was very comfortable and clean, but be prepared to spend a lot of time on it as there is no driving at night. Trip leader extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and helpful. Overall, excellent value and a trip with plenty of time to see the bucket list highlights in each city.

Did Uluru discovery in Australia and Grand Kiwi in NZ back in November and it was the most amazing experience ever! Awesome guide and driver. Well organized and took great care of us!
Only one bad hostel accommodation wise, but other than that it was amazing.
It was so nice not having to worry about accommodations, transportation, and most meals when we got there! On the days it wasn’t included, the guide/driver would tell us what’s in the area!
For sure will be doing another topdeck tour in the future!

My partner and I just completed the 20 day Discover Winter tour and it was absolutely outstanding! What really made the trip though was the Trip Leader, Alex, and the driver, Deyan. They were both extremely knowledgeable people and explained everything we needed to know to enjoy every place we went to. I highly recommend this tour and hope that everybody else has the opportunity to meet Alex and Deyan.
