For guests who want to experience and discover this marvelous part of Southern Ontario in one day, this tour is a perfect choice.
Departing from your hotel or place of your choice (within the Greater Toronto Area), you will discover the City of Kingston and the Thousand Islands Region with an experienced driver guide.
We are committed to providing a safe and clean drive by fulfilling and even exceeding all regulatory requirements regarding the COVID-19.
Our first stop is Kingston: Once the provincial capital of Ontario, aka "Limestone City" with the beautiful City Hall, Queen University, Fort Henry, and Royal Military College of Canada. Kingston is a place with a rich maritime and military history. It is conveniently located 240 kilometers from Toronto and halfway to Ottawa, the Nation’s Capital.
In Downtown Kingston, you will have two hours of free time for discovering the historic city center with an optional (no extra cost) tour inside the City Hall.
Your guide will also take you to Fort Henry, Bellevue House, and Penitentiary, three historic places in town. You can use your free time in the city for lunch.
Departing from Kingston, our next destination for our boat tour is either Gananoque (28 kilometers) or Ivy Lea (47) in the Thousand Islands Region at the Western end of the St. Lawrence River.
The boat tour starts from either of these destinations depending on the schedule.
With a two-and-a-half-hour boat tour from Gananoque or a one-hour boat tour from Ivy Lea (no landing), you will see the historic and legendary Boldt Castle with its tragic past, the Thousand Island Bridge, Town of Alexandria, NY, and hear amazing stories about the region including "underwater treasures".
