Just to clarify - we want to get off the tour in New York.

At this point in time, any stage will do us!

It seems a great difficulty to find anything - start in Ontario and end in New York!!

All assistance will be helpful.

many thanks and haerae ra

Hi pippa64Oamaru;

Yes, Times Square is located in New York City, within the State of New York.

There are two reasons that you are having problems locating a tour.

1) New York City (NYC) is approx. 550 miles / 880 km from London, Ontario.

2) Tours to the US usually originate from larger cities in Canada, such as Toronto.

If your plans are to only use the tour as transportation, why not just make your way to NYC, yourself ?

Thank you very much for your response. Yes, coming to that conclusion i.e. to use Amtrax or Greyhound.

Um, isn't Greyhound a bit end of scale in terms of 'neceness?' (how to put delicatly!!)

If we use Amtrax then we get in to Penn Station......it takes nearly 12 hours and will be daylight but we wanted to see and stop over if possible some of the more popular States sights en route from Canada to NY.

Many thanks again foryour help.

If you happen to think of anything else or can make a recommendation re tours ex-NY, that finish up in NY! please don't hesitate to communicate.

Haerae ra

You're Welcome !

To use Amtrack, you will need to depart from Toronto, which as approx. 120 miles / 192 km east of London.

Greyhound is North America's largest inter-city bus company.

An alternative bus service to NYC, with departures from Toronto, is Coach Canada.

If your intention is to stop along the way and see the sights, I would suggest renting a car and driving yourself. Much more flexibility, allowing you the ability to stop where you want, and for as long or short as you want.

Best Regards

Travel to Toronto and then take Megabus or fly from there on Porter, Westjet or Air Canada.

You will not find a tour from here, NYC is too far.
