I remember that time when we joined the tour, it was Friday and we started from New Jersey. To be honest, I wasn’t into taking bus tours but this bus journey made all the difference in my life. There were so many destinations to discover and the best part is that we had a friendly tour guide who helped us out in every bit. My personal best toured-locations were the Thousand Islands and Niagara Falls. Wonderful experience!
on the second day, we traveled to the Niagara Falls and the Glass Museum. It really fascinated me. I have never anticipated that museum like Corning Glass exists; breathtaking exhibits. Then we came to Niagara Falls. We traveled on good economy class buses. Lake Ontario Cruise and exploring the Montreal, Ottawa, and Boston are also the best part of the bus trip. It was good; at least we enjoyed to our heart’s content.
it was amazing to explore the north American attractions and the Lake Ontario boat riding was an absolute fun for me and my family. Since we were already in the Montreal, the French Capital of Canada, there are a bunch of places to tour rather than just wandering around the Olympic Stadium and Old Montreal. It should be managed as to let visit the top-notch sites of a certain region. Other than that, our hotel, buses, tour host, and the people were decent and totally worth it.
