New: Niagara, New York and Washington DC tour

  • VIP door-to-door travel service
  • Included travel insurance
  • Guaranteed departures on all available dates

Take the Amtrak train from Pennsylvania Station, opt for a helicopter ride over Niagara Falls and see Mount Vernon, George Washington’s country home.

From the roaring power of Niagara Falls to the vibrant bustle of Times Square, natural and man-made wonders combine on Saga’s new nine-night Niagara, New York and Washington DC tour.

Adventures on this North American holiday include options to take a helicopter ride over Niagara Falls or a cruise into the mist storm of Horseshoe Falls, and guided tours of New York and Washington.

The itinerary also features a visit to Corning Museum of Glass which houses 45,000 objects from 3,500 years of glassmaking and features demonstrations from master craftsmen.

The first two nights are spent in Canada, at the Radisson on the Falls Hotel(4Q) adjoining the Niagara River, where the cruise passes the base of the America Falls before entering the plunge pool of the 167-foot Horseshoe Falls, the most powerful at Niagara with more than two million litres of water thundering over every second.

Three nights in New York are spent at the Holiday Inn NYC Times Square (4Q) in Times Square, with plenty of leisure time to soak up the city’s unique atmosphere and explore everything from the towering Empire State Building to Copper & Oak, the smallest bar in the ‘Big Apple’, which offers more than 600 spirits to an accompaniment of 1980s music.

The relaxing three-and-a-half hour journey to Washington is made by rail, from the famed NYC Penn Station, built beneath the Madison Square Garden arena, from which 650,000 commuters travel in and out of the city daily.

In the nation’s capital, Saga’s guests stay at the Omni Shoreham Washngton (4Q), an elegant 1930s hotel which has hosted presidents, world leaders and inaugural balls.

Sightseeing includes the White House, Capitol Building, Supreme Court, Kennedy Centre and many more monuments and memorials, while free time can be spent visiting the Smithsonian institutions, or the International Spy Museum, or taking an excursion to Mount Vernon, the country home and plantation of George Washington.
