    — About Your Trip —


    We understand how precious time is. That’s why we highly recommend exploring Eastern Canada by rail, so you can focus on spending time with you family and friends, and not on the commute.

    All VIA rail stations are conveniently located within the City Centers, and your transfers to hotel and attractions will all be pre-booked, giving you plenty of time to explore the city, attractions, and restaurants.

    This Eastern Railroad Explore package will take you from Toronto through to Montreal, with stops in Kingston, Ottawa, and Quebec City. You will be introduced to the rich histories of this land, and be witness the unique bi-lingual society of Canada.
