The best thing in that tour was Niagara Jet Boat ride, i just wish if it was included in the price. the bus was nice enough but had no Wifi. The hotel was really great and it was also just few minutes away from Niagara Falls, it was also very clean and comfortable. We really loved Boston Harbor Cruise,Cave of the Winds, Harvard University Campus Tour.
The tour itself was really great, i just had a couple of issues, first the bathroom on the bus was for emergencies only,so we had to wait for breaks, also i really wish if admissions were included in the tour price.
