The tour was great and really enjoyed the company of fellow tourists. I have already visited places like Boston and Washington before however the level of enjoyment and entertainment was totally different this time. It was my first time visiting the Niagara Falls. I completely fell in love with it. The Maid of the Mist Boat Ride and night view of the Falls were quite fascinating for me. I also enjoyed the Boston Lobster dinner and would recommend it to anyone planning to visit Boston. The entire package was wonderful and phenomenal.
