Muskokas Getaway

The Deerhurst Resort

Muskoka is consistently named one of the best places to visit in Canada and the world by publications such as National Geographic, Frommer’s and Reader’s Digest. Discover what makes Muskoka so amazing! The quaint and charming region affectionately known as Canada’s cottage country has received some tremendous recognition over the years as one of Canada’s top vacation spots and one of the top vacation spots in the world!



Embracing Peninsula Lake, Deerhurst Resort is your year-round retreat for a Muskoka vacation or getaway to Ontario’s famous “cottage country,” one of National Geographic Traveller Magazine’s “Best of the World” recommended places to visit. Ideal for fun-filled vacations, year-round getaways and meetings. Check in and relax! Dinner tonight is at the Resort, followed by an evening to enjoy all the resort has to offer. It’s a leisurely evening of autumn bliss!

This fall take a sightseeing cruise aboard the 300 passenger Miss Midland and experience the sparkling water, windswept pines and rocky grandeur of the Muskoka – Georgian Bay’s 30,000 islands, the finest cruising area in the northern hemisphere!

Travel to the Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh for a special tour of the signature Canadian Experience! This is the oldest cranberry marsh in the province. Harvesting takes place through October by flooding the beds, a mechanical picker separates the berries while conveyors and boats bring them to shore.We will have an opportunity to sample preserves and other products at the food tent and gift store.

Opened in 1993 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Algonquin Provincial Park and the entire Ontario provincial park system, the Algonquin Park Visitor Centre has world class exhibits on the Park’s natural and human history, a relaxing restaurant and an excellent bookstore. A theatre presentation sums up the Park story and then takes you out to the viewing deck from where you can admire a breathtaking panorama of wild Algonquin landscape. Here we’ll enjoy a boxed lunch while surrounded by the stunning autumn colours!

Daniel O’Donnell coming to Hamilton!

One of Ireland’s musical treasures is back on tour and making a stop in Hamilton, Ontario this September at First Ontario Concert Hall! Singer Daniel O’Donnell will perform his mix of musical genres that can only be described as eclectic, ranging from traditional Irish songs and favourites mixed with country, gospel, rock, movie and whatever else tickles his fancy of the moment.

His most recent album, 2017’s Back Home Again, includes covers of Kris Kristofferson’s Me And Bobby McGee and Help Me Make It Through The Night, Lead Belly’s Cotton Fields Back Home, Delaney & Bonnie’s Never Ending Song Of Love, Hank Williams’ Why Don’t You Love Me (Like You Used To Do) and Pat Boone’s hit Love Letters in the Sand. O’Donnell has had an album on the UK charts every year since 1988, surpassing artists worldwide, including Michael Jackson, the Rolling Stones, Madonna and Ireland’s rock royalty, U2. O’Donnell is a six-time country artist of the year. He’s also won several entertainer of the year awards and received an honorary MBE from Queen Elizabeth in 2002, the year he was featured on U.S. television, spawning a new army of fans on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.

Join Maple Leaf Tours as we travel to Hamilton for a one day tour to see Daniel O’Donnell live in concert at First Ontario Place in Hamilton on Wednesday September 20th, 2017!

Come From Away Musical

Broadway’s COME FROM AWAY is a Best Musical winner all across North America!

This New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by this year’s Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!”

On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

Maple Leaf Tours has now released four dates for this amazing musical as it comes to the Royal Alexandra theatre in downtown Toronto this coming April and May! You can book your seat online, pop into one of our two office locations or call 613-384-0012 (Kingston) 613-969-8884 (Belleville)

New Office & Road Work

We are getting settled into our new home at 2937 Princess Street and looking forward to sharing our new space with you! We had originally planned to have our Grand Opening on July 22nd only to discover that the City of Kingston and Bell are digging up the road to install new Bell Fibe lines in front of our office!

We are open however there may be times when the construction company has blocked our driveway (conveniently we have two entries off of Princess Street!) We were made aware of this construction project just this week and they have given us a tentative timeline from July 12 to the end of August. We are hoping they finish sooner rather than later!

Our Grand Opening has been postponed until September 9th, 2017.
