Our Eastern offerings, like those in the West, are designed to give maximum visual splendor and also feature train travel through areas that are especially scenic. Our exclusive ‘Royal Canadian Holiday’ with the Queen Mary 2 each fall offers the rare ability to enjoy vista-dome train travel to Niagara Falls, the start of our tour, aboard the Maple Leaf Limited.

Our ‘Fall Colors in Quebec and Vermont’ also features vintage private train travel from New York City to Montreal at the start of the program with a daylight passage up the Hudson River Valley, through the Adirondacks and along Lake Champlain, a visual feast in the words of a BBC writer. Our ‘Train Holiday to the Great Smoky Mountains’ features the wonderfully scenic trip aboard the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, at the perfect times of the year. Because of limited capacity, all of these programs sell out so prompt reservations are always wise.
