Niagara Falls is so amazing!! I only felt that the time when we were at there was too short. The hotel "La Quinta Inn" was clean and very comfortable. The next day in we head to Thousand Islands I only wish we had had more time, because you’ll only stay 1 hour on the boat, and then you say bye-bye. But overall the tour was okay, always on time according to the plan. Thumbs up!
