$3,499.00

New York, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Washington DC, Niagara Falls, Boston

Flying to into New York, you can begin your adventure with a guided tour of the city, or take your own bite out of the big apple – feel free to spend the whole day eating pizza if that's what you like! The following day you'll cruise the Hudson river and view the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge, before walking and driving through the iconic Manhattan city-scape.

On to Philadelphia, where you will see the Liberty Bell, thought to have been rung after the first reading of the United States Declaration of Independence in 1776. Keeping with the political theme, you will next visit Washington DC and view a number of important landmarks such as the White House, Lincoln Memorial, and the memorials to the Americans who died in the Korean and Vietnam wars. After all of this history, soak up the power of the Niagara Falls, up close on the famous 'Maid of the Mist' cruise, and then explore Boston's Harvard University, Freedom Trail (a 2.5-mile, red-lined route that leads you to 16 historically significant sites in the city), and Public Gardens – established in 1837 and the first public botanical garden in America.
