We are senoirs and were very concerned before going on this trip with the bad reviews. But I was more than satisfied after the trip. Was picked up in a new van because there was only 6 of us including the driver, Kei Chan. There was no tour guide. Even without a separate guide, it was a wonderful trip. Kei shared what information he knew on each stop, was an excellent driver and always on time. I truly hope that his management reads this and acknowledges Kei for all his efforts. The routes were very scenic with very few interstates. My friend had never been to Niagara Falls and she enjoyed it too. 5 stars given by me on our trip.

Our trip to Niagara was wonderful. This was our first trip with TAKETOURS. Nathan, the guide & driver took good care of us throughout the journey. On the first day we reached Watkins Glen state park. Instead of climbing from the bottom, as others were doing, he took us to the top of the glen, thereby making it easier for us to come down through gorge and enjoy the flora and fauna of the canyon. After covering about 400 miles he gave us a break at Days Inn, Batavia. Next morning we moved straight to Niagara Falls. At every point our guide was with us, till the entrance so we did not have any difficulty or time loss. We enjoyed IMAX show about Niagara Falls, Maid of the mist boat ride, Trolley tours, Old Fort and Whirlpool state park trip very much. At the evening the traditional American dance show was colorful. Here also we stayed at Days Inn, Niagara. From our seventh floor room we got a clear view of Canadian city side. At the evening we walked down to the falls side to have a look of falls illumination. The illumination of the falls was superb. Next day, on our way back to home, we visited Hershey Chocolate factory. It was a new experience, particularly making of own chocolate bar. Last day we covered about 500 miles (800 KM), but the journey was so smooth that we were not much tired. Our trip to Niagara was more than successful.
