Check out our web site to see pictures from our 2017 tour:

Day 1:  We begin our trek east through Michigan and cross into Canada.  Just a few hours down the highway, you will be in the heart of Ontario.  We spend the next 3 nights at the Cambridge Hotel and Conference Center, Cambridge, Ontario.  Dinner included this evening.

Day 2:  After breakfast at the hotel, we tour the Toyota Manufacturing Plant and see award-winning production and quality control systems in action and marvel at one of the largest stamping presses in the world.  Watch Team Members and robots build the Corolla and Lexus.  Then we spend the remainder of the day at African Lion Safari and tour the grounds on foot and by tram.  Get closer than you could have imagined to over 1,000 exotic birds and animals from around the world, including majestic lions, graceful giraffes, and a crash of rhinos.  Dinner included this evening.

Day 3:  A local guide joins us for the day and will show us first hand why the Niagara Peninsula region is so widely known for grape growing with a tasting at a winery.  

With narrative that appeals to any interest, we will enjoy Niagara Falls and its beautiful setting as we travel along the Niagara Parkway.  Check out Niagara Falls from multitude vantage points and learn about the storied history of the world’s most famous waterfall.  A cruise aboard the Hornblower Niagara is the only way to get up close to the falls without going over in a barrel.  Dinner included this evening.
