    My husband and I joined a 5-day tour with TakeTours. The tour package we joined was the 5-Day USA, Canada East Coast tour package from New York. We had been to New York previously, but we were keen to see the Niagara Falls and experience a bit of Canada. The itinerary was the following: New York-Corning-Niagara Falls-Toronto-Thousand Islands-Ottawa-Montreal-Quebec-Boston-New York. The tour guide was Michelle, and the driver was Danny. We found that they were hardworking and responsible. They ensured that we could see many sights in one day. We started at 6am every day. We would return to the hotel at 8pm at night. It was a good full day of sightseeing. And it was great that Take Tours dropped us off at JFK airport at the end of the tour. The tour was worthwhile. It was good value for money. We felt that we were able to visit many places during a short period a time. We really enjoyed the Niagara Falls, the Corning glass museum and especially the Thousand Islands. We felt though that you required high energy levels for this tour. As much activity was packed into a short period of time. All in all, this was a wonderful experience. Well worth it. I would recommend it.

    My friends and I had a wonderful time with our 5Day tour to New York/Canada from 7/5 to 11/5/16. Our guide Sammy Lin was kind, competent, experienced and so caring. We didn't want to leave the tour after our 5 days are up. The driver Tony was very helpful with our luggage. He was a careful driver too so we could sleep peacefully till our next stop. The hotels where we stayed are more than we have expected - clean & spacious. Sammy recommended all the meal which we should take and we enjoyed tremendously. It was very delicious. We especially love the Boston lobster meal. All meals are more than enough for us. I highly recommended this tour especially if Sammy & Tony are leading it. I will definitely travel with him again.

    This was the most professionally managed tour that I have ever taken. The bus was very clean and comfortable, with huge windows which allow you to soak in the scenery. If you feel like sleeping, you can as the ride is very smooth even in the second last seat where I was located. I took this trip with my wife and parents, and all four of us enjoyed the trip throughly. One of the main reasons for the trip being so good was the exceptional planning and logistics skill of Karen Li - our tour guide. She ensured that we had adequate time at each sight and just had us breeze through borders. Also, her english was very good. Another MAJOR advantage is that you just give the tour guide the money for all optional attractions on day 1, the prices of which are listed so clearly on the website, and then you need not worry about ANYTHING. Karen (or whoever your guide is) will get the tickets, guide you to the line and show you where to catch the bus again. So no more worrying about lines, parking spots, tolls etc. ONE NOTE OF CAUTION - if you want a relaxing vacation, please skip this tour, as it is meant for an audience who wants to see maximum number of sights in minimum number of days. You will be required to board the bus around 6:20 AM daily, and reach hotel back only around 9 PM.
