    Many of us would also leave tomorrow for a trip to the USA, the destination that has entered the hearts of those who read and write on this site. But since you have to leave an entire ocean behind to set foot on American soil, why not consider taking a leap in Canada, while we're at it? The temptation is great, and indeed i are not uncommon US-Canada combined tours for those who want to discover the beauties of one and the other state.



    The risk, however, is to organize a somewhat messy itinerary and to visit the attractions in an approximate way: this is why today we want to recommend you an interesting organized tour Montreal - New York in 13 days, which will suit anyone who does not have the time and desire to organize the trip independently.

    Unlike the 8-day Toronto - New York tour (in which Toronto is simply an approach to Niagara Falls) the organized trip from Montreal to New York it doesn't just take an itinerary between Pennsylvania, Maryland and New York State, it also includes some fascinating ones Canadian stops, which can be satisfactorily explored.

    Before going to illustrate the tour itinerary in detail, I want to remind you that it is possible to make any type of request to the affiliated agency that directly manages the tour: just click on the link below and fill in the form with the requested data.
