I along with my family planned a 5-day trip to Cleveland, Millennium Park, Niagara Falls, Toronto and Detroit Tour. Believe me the trip was truly amazing and we enjoyed a lot. We are so impressed by this trip that we would love to go there again and experience the good time once again. This deserves a 5-star rating from me and my family.

I took a couple of people visiting from overseas and they did not even get to see the front of the Niagara Falls. Why put that in the list if you are going to dupe people that way. I thought we will go at least closer to the falls and the other places. It was NOT our fault that the bus was stopped due to safety concerns. It is the company\'s but it was the passengers time and money that was robbed.

We loved Millennium Park, Cloud Gate, Clarence Buckingham Memorial Fountain, Navy Pier, Chicago Theater, Michigan Avenue, Grant Park, Chicago Water Tower,the Art Institute of Chicago, the 360 Chicago, Henry Ford Museum, Abraham Lincoln’s chair from Ford’s Theater, presidential limousine of John F.
