Excellent tour! I took this tour with my brother, and it was so much fun! We travelled all the way from New York to take this tour from Chicago, and it was totally worth it! From start ,till the end, we were enjoying every bit of this. Niagara falls as I always heard were exciting, but I fell in love with the essence of it as soon as reached there, and then we spent an entire day there! Such a beautiful place! Amazing trip, and definitely a must-go tour.

The tour was well planned, and I must say it was well thought off. However when we went to Niagara falls, it was very crowded, so I think we shouldn’t have stayed there for more than a few hours. Infact, Cleveland and Detroit were more exciting than that. The rest, accomodoation and transportation were up to the mark. It is a must go tour if you are taking your annual holidays off, and want to spend a good time travelling around with your family. This tour is designed for nearly all age groups, so you’ll enjoy it to the core.

Our Tour guide took us to the Rainbow Bridge and we looked at it from across the lake. Five minutes and then we were asked to get back to the bus. We were not able to see any museum which was promised if there was no cruise. His English was really bad and it put additional stress on passengers who were not Chinese.
