it was a lovely day when we finally arrived in the Niagara Falls. We have been waiting for such a long time to finally go out on this tour to the Niagara Falls. I was hoping something much more at the Niagara Falls; rather we just boarded a small cruise and just spent the remaining time exploring the Falls Park by ourselves which sometimes get a lot lazier, but it was still fun since the Niagara Falls is such a wonderful place to visit. I wouldn’t say that the Washington Tour was better than the Niagara Falls tour because spending the entire day wandering around the city just made us quite exhausted. Thank God we slept in decent hotels!
It was a much awaited trip and we had a memorable time. We took amazing pictures of scenic beauty and had the most romantic time on this tour. It was a good trip overall. Everything was well planned, organized and well executed as well. This Golden B...us Tours package is ultimate fun and affordable.
