The Best of Eastern Canada

toronto canada

This week we are visiting Eastern Canada – Montreal, Quebec City and Toronto as well as Ottawa and Niagara Falls.  From the European-styled, old world elegance of Quebec City to the thundering magnificence of Niagara Falls, you will love every moment of this tour of Eastern Canada.

This is a magnificent view of the Toronto skyline.  Perhaps a visit to the CN Tower and have dinner in the 360 restaurant.

We will be staying two nights each in Montreal, Quebec City and Toronto, as well as one overnight stay in Ottawa.  The great thing about this trip is our tours are included in each city.

One of the highlights of this tour is a visit to Niagara Falls.  We will be taking the Maid of the Mist boat to the base of the falls.  What a thrilling adventure.  Be sure to bring your camera.

Before we visit Niagara Falls we will stop by Niagara-on-the-Lake, a quaint little town with local shops and a charming atmosphere.

Poutine – a dish originating from the Canadian province of Quebec consisting of french fries and cheese curds topped with a brown gravy.  We can not get Poutine in the US.  Have to admit, I have never tried this, but I believe some of our fast food restaurants now sell Poutine.  Give it a try.

I have been to Toronto before and really enjoyed the restaurants and the underground city.  That was my first experience and was amazed what was underground.  Hope you can experience this tour for yourself.

Let’s Go to Peru

This week we are visiting one of my “bucket list” countries – Peru.  Peru is famous for Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.  How cool will it be to see one of the new wonders.  I and many of my friends have wanted to visit Machu Picchu, and I found a great tour that will give us all the important sites of Lima, Cusco, the Sacred Valley and a full day at Machu Picchu.

This tour begins in Lima with stays in Cusco and the Sacred Valley, a day in Machu Picchu and then back to Lima.  This 7 day/6 night tour is just enough to give us a great immersion into the culture and history of this amazing country.

Turks and Caicos All Inclusive Getaway

Alexandra-Resort-Grace-Bay-Beach-Turks-and-Caicos1486736680 - Copy

Welcome to the beautiful Alexandra Resort on beautiful Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos.  Until recently, there was only one All Inclusive resort in Providenciales (Provo) and I am so happy that there are three additional resorts that offer all-inclusive amenities.    The Alexandra Resort offers 90 spacious suites for the discerning traveler.

 

The resort’s spacious suites are distinguished by high ceilings, large decks or patios, fully equipped kitchens (kitchenettes in studios), laptop-size safety deposit boxes, and free wi-fi.

 

The experience of staying at Alexandra Resort is a unique one. Resort amenities include a large lagoon-style swimming pool, Asu on the Beach restaurant, Elevate Spa,  24-hour front desk and an fitness room. Alexandra Resort offers many services on a complimentary basis, including non-motorized water sports, tennis courts, bicycles, a free dining shuttle to sister resorts Beach House Turks and Caicos and Blue Haven Resort, and Wi-fi property wide.

If you want to explore the island, there are several tour companies that will take you on an island tour.  There is also a golf course on Provo, so be sure to bring your clubs with you.  For the water enthusiasts, there is deep sea fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, flyboarding, parasailing.  There is a ferry service to take you to Grand Turk or Iguana Island if you want to visit some of the other islands in the Turks and Caicos chain.

Provo is a great place to get away from the world to relax, soak up the sun and gaze at the most beautiful water you will see in the Caribbean on Grace Bay Beach.
