Well paced. Good guide. Clean, well appointed hotels. Terrific value.
Just great so far ! Our trip has been full of surprises and great guides passing on relevant information and taking everyone in to their considerations when carrying daily schedules... Wonderful stuff!!!!!!!!
We were a family of 3 and thought this tour was excellent. The falls were amazing. The tour guide Victoria was wonderful and made sure our bus was always ahead of the crowds. Accommodation was good and the tour which included Toronto and outlet shopping had plenty of interesting facts. The only downside was the toilet in the bus which for some reason is unable to be used-and caused drama on our tour. Get them to work or lock them please !!
Very well organized,hotels of good standards,bus very comfortable and excellent bus driver
It was a very nice and smooth trip. The tour guide explain everything into details and to my understanding.
I did really enjoyed the trip.
Our tour guide Laura and driver Marco were exceptional. Very knowledgeable, professional and cool under pressure. I was disappointed by how some of the other passengers behaved on the trip but Laura, especially handled them wonderfully. You have two excellent employees and I hope you know that.
The tour of Niagara falls, Lake Ontario, etc. was breathtaking. I would recommend this tour and viator to everyone I know. Thanks for a great experience and vacation!
The accommodation was excellent, the tour guide was knowledgeable and the sights were memorable.
The tour was well organized and the guiding team was professional and attentive.
We just finished this tour . Yosi and Victoria were great. It is a really long bus ride so be prepared. I would have liked to have more free time at Niagara falls the second morning and skip Toronto and definitely skip the shopping mall in Toronto. I would recommend buying your souvenirs as you go. We were told unless you want something specific wait until the last day to shop at the duty free stop. I asked if they would have Niagara falls items and was told yes. The last day when we stopped to shop we were told we have to beat the rest of the busses across the border so you have 20 minutes. The store is crowded and the lines are long. I grabbed a few things and got in line. I don't know if they had Niagara falls items because I only saw a small part of the store.
We had a truly wonderful and informative tour. Both our tour guides were good. Motels were very clean and comfortable. Eating buffets along the way were passable but mostly consisted of Chinese food. Niagara Falls boat trip and sightseeing were exceptional with plenty of time for photos. Dinner at the sky tower was very affordable and enjoyable and the view from their observation platform is fantastic especially if you are there for the night when they let off the fireworks over the falls. Highly recommended.
This was an excellent tour. They maintained time schedules and the guide was exceptionally good. Driver was very good and the journey throughout was comfortable. The hotels could have been better but were O.K. On the whole it was comfortable and enjoyable. I would be happy to recommend it to others.
Adding this to my New York visit was a highlight!! Well worth doing!
Niagara Falls and Maids of the mist should not be missed.
Breakfasts are included and good meals. Lunch is at reasonable prices and Dinner has a wide choice to suit your budget.
The trip was good, and we liked a lot the guide (Hector); he was so kind to us and explained great. Driver (Marco) was great too. A 10 for both. Maybe I would say there was not enough time to enjoy Toronto properly and that you has to be prepared for long bus travel. Niagara falls are incredible.
Excellent trip, Mottie our guide made it very interesting and informative and made sure everyone was happy. The overnight accomodation and food stops were good. Niagara falls, Watkins Glen, Niagara on the Lake, and Thousand Islands were all amazing, and well worth the distance travelled. We were so pleased we booked 2 other trips with Viator
Tour guide was very good especially with keeping to schedule so we are always on time. Plenty of restroom stops for long journey. However I feel too much time is spent on the bus and on travelling. Accommodation is poor for the second day. Having said that it is a relatively inexpensive tour so it is probably reasonable for what you are paying for.
I feel at that time of year hotel in Niagara Falls should of been closer to town or transportation provided. Did not like being dropped off at shopping center in Toronto. We realized we could not do what was planned but a drive around the city would have nice . We do not feel like we saw Toronto at all.
I don’t really want to talk about that one. I felt ostracized like other four ladies from English speaking group. I felt rush through under a military rules and commanders without a personal time when was needed. As for Niagara is just beautiful I gladly see that phenomenon again but not this way. The one good news is a hotels used in the trip just great. I don’t even know why we went to Toronto didn’t see anything special �� mall what’s to see and Parliament so for 95% of non-English speaking people I can’t see a great value but maybe I’m wrong. We as “English speaking” individuals express our opinions in final appraisal of the tour and we got apology but it was too late the tour was over.
The seats in the bus are not comfortable at all, the hours you have to sit in the bus are too long and the time you get for eating or other activities are too short. There is only breakfast included (not dinner), and you get very late to your hotel. The tourguide was not prepaired to give good explanations neither to bring union in the diferent groups that were participating. The attracciones were interesting, but mostly too short to really enjoy.
