This tour is amazing seeing quite a few places in the 3 days. The guide was not that great, gave us information on the bus but what we actually saw sometimes was not that great. The falls was amazing but such a long wait. Was waiting to see the underground city in Toronto but it was just a walk through with no information during the walk. Still would recommend the tour.

We loved this trip, it provided an excellent overview of the area we were visiting - we spent quite a bit of the time in Canada which was lovely. The accommodation was good and the tour guides were very good - we had a lovely time and enjoyed the experience. We also took our 2 children 10 and 8 and they were fine travelling - so recommended for families too.

Such an amazing experience and our tour guide, Israel was super informative. I Would highly recommend this tour. Only let down was there were 4 different languages on the one tour and some other patrons were not as patient in waiting for their turn when it came to tour information from our guide.

It was a mom and teen son trip we had a blast he had wifi and I didn't have to drive. Our guide Stephanos was so wonderful he took care of all the Italian guests and we were 2 of 4 English speaking but did not feel out of place. My son was thrilled to see the falls and ride the maid of the most the highlight as well as Watkins Glenn and all the small towns along Lake Ontario. Toronto was somewhere I had never gone so it was nice to spend time in the distillery district. We are not shoppers so didn't care much for the outlets but needed to get out of the bus by than anyway. It was quite a bit of walking but we enjoyed the beautiful weather. Thanks viator
