You'll board the private cars "Alexander Hamilton" and "Passiac River" in New York's Penn Station on Thursday July 27th and we'll travel along behind Amtrak's "Adirondack" service to Montreal. As we leave New York, we'll travel up the Hudson River first out of the hustle and bustle of the Bronx and Rockland County while eating a hot cooked breakfast and into the more laid back Hudson Valley through towns like Poughkeepsie and Rhinecliff and on to Albany, the state capital.
From Albany, we'll roll through some of the most scenic parts of New York State, The Adirondack Mountains and along the shores of Lake Champlain. Dinner will be served hot and fresh as we roll along the beautiful upstate New York countryside. At Rouses Point, NY, we'll stop for Canadian Border Inspection and then onto Montreal, 50 miles inside Canada.
Along the way, you'll be treated to meals served onboard the diner-lounge "Passiac River" and drinks and light snacks will be available all day both in the "Passiac River" and also from the kitchen of the "Alexander Hamilton".
When we arrive in Montreal, you'll be taken to the Sofitel to check in to your room for 3 nights and 2 days of fun and exploration in Quebec's largest city and the second largest French speaking city in the world after Paris. There is a Metro stop adjacent to the hotel to help you get around, and taxis and Uber are plentiful all around the city. Another popular option is to take a day bus trip to Quebec City and see what's billed as "A little part of Europe in Canada".
On Sunday July 30th, we'll check out of the hotel and return to Canadian National station to head back to New York along the same scenic route we took on the way up with a continental breakfast, lunch and dinner provided.
