We were three nurses who went to this 3day Niagara Falls tour and had a great time. The tour guide name Cayden Huang and Driver "Bobo" were amazing guys. They were so accommodating and friendly. We had a couple of laughs especially when we went to a wrong Hotel which is 7 mins. away from the right one. The group was so nice with no complaints throughout our tour. The last day we had free breakfast...that was really good! I will definitely get another trip and will highly recommend to all my friends. THANK YOU! We will see you next trip.

We had booked this tour for a group of 7 people including seniors and a child. Initially I was hesitant that it might be very hectic but we had very few number of days and wanted to cover multiple destinations. The tour was actually very well organized. Our guide was Felix and he ensured that the group was on time to adhere to the schedule. We had sufficient time at Niagara which was totally worth. Though we spent a lot of time on the bus, it never felt hectic as there were breaks every 2-3 hours. Also, the hotels were quite nice for the price. Overall, a good experience and would recommend to anyone who wants to cover multiple destinations without having to think of planning.

I recommend this tour!

My last trip was actually better than expected, where we stayed at the hotel 2 nights in a row, and the hotel was super clean and had more amenities than a standard 3-star. Our tour guide was Lay awesome- funny and friendly. His English was better than we expected, as we had a non-Chinese speaker in our group. I noticed that he also stayed up during the late night drives purposely making conversation with the driver to ensure everyone's safety. That was pretty cool of him. The driver was nice too- didn't get lost except one wrong turn that cost us all of 5 minutes due to traffic. He kept to his company's schedule but also accommodated the tourists requests.

The tour was well planned. The guide and driver were very well spoken and they made sure that the planned schedule was being followed. The bus made stops every 2-3 hours which made the trip less hectic. The accommodation was quite good for both days. If you have less time and you want to cover more places like me, then I highly recommend this tour.
