 City Breaks In Toronto, Montréal, Calgary & Vancouver 


Sometimes, a simple change of scene and a change of pace are all that’s needed for an enjoyable brief getaway.  You’ll find both when you book one of the intriguing “City Breaks” offered by The Great Canadian Travel Company to four distinctly different Canadian cities. 


Choose from Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montréal as you take advantage of four-day programs to each of these cities, designed to be enjoyed separately or, if you wish, to be mixed and matched.  Included are accommodations, full-day excursion, guided city tour and round trip airport transfers.  


The Great Canadian Travel Company is a specialist in travel to the north, providing a “Window to the Top of the World.” For these not-so-outlandish “City Breaks,” the experienced and highly regarded travel company uses its expertise and Canadian connections to fashion four affordable getaways.


Vancouver. Voted “Best City in the Americas” by Condé Nast Traveler, this Pacific-coast charmer is made-to-measure for a “City Break.” You’ll stay at a central hotel and enjoy a fully guided, half-day sightseeing tour on the first morning, with the balance of the day yours for free-wheeling exploration. The following day is reserved for a full-day whale-watching tour and the opportunity to ! learn more about this city’s great marine history.


In the evening, you’re free to sample Vancouver’s vigorous night life. Then, on the final morning of your visit, there’s an opportunity to enjoy a horse-drawn tour through Stanley Park, the thousand-acre natural heart of the city. Three nights from CAN$425 per person based on double occupancy.


Calgary. Canada’s fastest-growing city offers a balance between a dynamic urban environment with spectacular shops and nightlife and the tranquility and beauty of the nearby Canadian Rocky Mountains. Your “City Break” will include a visit to Fort Calgary, with its history of the North West Mounted Police, the First Nations people and early European settlers. You’ll also experience a thrilling rid! e to the top of the ski jump that was used in the 1988 Winter Olympics and spend a full day exploring the edge of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and the bustling world-class resort town of Banff, which packs into its downtown streets an amazing number of cutting-edge boutiques and restaurants. Three nights from CAN$565 per person based on double occupancy.


Toronto. Spending four days in Canada’s eastern hub is easy. With so many attractions near at hand, visitors are spoiled by the choices, which range from major theater (up there with New York and London) and innovative restaurants to the Royal Ontario Mu! seum and the Hockey Hall of Fame. There’s a city orientation tour to help you learn about the city’s major sights—such as the soaring CN Tower and beaches along Lake Ontario’s shore.
