Now, if someone asks me what’s the best place on Earth, I say it’s the Niagara Falls. Because, on this tour, I have seen so much especially the renowned museums such as the Ford Museum in Detroit, and the natural sites of the America like Chicago River, Lake Ontario, Niagara Falls. Thanks to the additional journey on our first day to the Outlet Mall we get to buy some strong shoes and outfits for the tour, and my daughter always loves shopping anywhere anytime in the world. Navy Pier, Chinatown in Toronto, Niagara Falls, 360 towers in Chicago, and Whirlpool State Park were the best places that literally amazed me. It was nice six days of the tour. Moreover, the days Inn hotel in the Falls and the Skylon building lunch were excellent and impressive.
I remember this tour exactly like we experienced it because of the great photos I took during the tour days. Tour was fine. We started it from Chicago and then moved from one famous tourist destinations to another. However, the lunch we had on the Skylon Tower heights was amazing, also the Chicago River cruise, and the Maid of the Mist on the Niagara River. It was so nice to finally see the Niagara Falls; it’s literally a part of heaven on earth. Anyways, the Quality Inn lodging was a decent idea. All the hotels in which we stayed were worth appreciating. Probably, I will depart on this tour again with my wife and children as well. Thanks for all the appropriate service!
We arrived about 15 minutes before the pick up timing and it was a really smooth go up on the bus process (it says no food and drink but the nice man let me take in my bagel and coffee-- even if you don\'t have food already, they sell it on the tour) I really enjoyed the tour guide.
