Day 1 New York - Thousand Islands (271 miles)

Guests will be picked up in New York and New Jersey in the early morning. From there, we will travel north to the Thousand Islands, where we will take a cruise of the area. As we take in the scenery, we will learn about the history of the region, which was once home to pirates and bootleggers. Along the way, we will see mysterious Deer Island, famous Boldt Castle and the shortest international bridge in the world on Zavikon Island. After dinner, we will go to the hotel for the evening.

Day 2 Thousand Islands - Niagara Falls (158 miles)

In the morning, we will depart from the hotel to go on an in-depth tour of Niagara Falls, which visits Whirlpool State Park and Old Fort Niagara. Then we will take the Jet Boat and Maid of the Mist boat cruise, watch IMAX movie before continuing to Goat Island and the Cave of the Winds. We will also be able to take an elevator to the base of Bridal Veil Falls.

In the afternoon, we can take a guided walking tour on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, which crosses the border at the Rainbow Bridge. On the walk, we will visit Queen Victoria Park, the Skylon Tower, the King George VI Statue and the Nikola Tesla Statue.

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. The itinerary of places were adjusted to smooth the travel period without the hassles of other tourist crowding.
