Our tour guide Lilian was really good. She gave us plenty of time at each place. I just came back today. Watkins Glen State Park is a really pretty hike. Our hotel in Niagara Falls was right near the pedestrian path to Canada and the fireworks display was a very nice show.

Liliana was an excellent tour guide! She held everyone very organized and on time! The itinerary was designed well and we enjoyed all the attractions. For future reference, a few hotels do have pools so bring a swimming suit. We were only suggested a food court near the Niagara Falls Park that we weren't interested in. However, after searching extensively we found a wonderful buffet in the Seneca Falls Casino. The food options were amazing from meats, seafood, pizza, salads, fruits, pastas, and a grand selection of desserts, etc for a good price! Overall, great tour and second time taking a tour with taketours!

The tour guide is very friendly and knowledgeable. Organized and prompt in ensuring groups are on schedule with the tour. The accommodation are great. Clean and decent selection of place to stay. Most of the Hotels have swimming pool. You have to bring your trunks if you want to swim. The transportation was comfortable. The driver ensure passengers are safe.
