We are an American family of 5 people, and looks like we were the only Americans on the tour except for one English couple, we soon became friends. Just a little advice, hire the tour guide that actually knows English. I know there are a lot of Chinese tourists, but some of us do need some of the guidance we could get from the guide, the language barrier made it so difficult. Anyhow, it was still a pretty well managed tour; we all enjoyed every bit of it

Yes, the long hours might leave you restless, but the bus had free Wi-Fi and whenever something beautiful came along, I could instantly upload it and show it to my brothers back home. It was a pleasant tour, nothing too fancy and nothing too low. I enjoyed every bit of it and the services provided by the company were just top notch, I have no complaints. I will hopefully see more of your tours, if they are as cheap as this one.  5 stars. Visiting the Niagara Falls with my fiancée has never been the same before this tour. It was totally breathtaking and romantic; the hotels were nice as well. I’m telling you, this is the best tour to enjoy with your S/O and have a great time. Our tour guide, Andy was just a knowledgeable and funny person, he made the long hours more entertaining for us. Thank you guys.

I have always been hesitant going on the bus tours with some random company, but after reading the reviews, it was pretty obvious this company has a long chain of clientele. It was pretty peaceful tour, everything was totally off the chart, the tour guide, the hotel, the breathtaking view from the top of CN tower, and everything was just so perfect. This has been by far the best weak of my life. Thanks.

This tour was exceptional but it could have been better with the timings. My wife and I think you provide very little time at the Niagara Falls. I know everyone was tired from the travelling and just wanted to hit hay but a little more time wouldn’t hurt. The lake Ontario cruise was by far our favorite thing in the entire tour, it was so detailed and lovely. We had a great time, and hopefully we will join you guys on more of your adventures.
