All the destinations deserve to be fall in love with. The six days of this whole trip changed my mood drastically. The weather was awesome as I lived in a humid and hot place.
After a long winter comes this summer and time to go on tours. Though winter had not finished its spell, it was nice, the climate was pleasant and to see places. The scenic beauty was fantastic. The 6 days went away fast by the time we completed all the sightseeing places, good.
Just came from a very comfortable tour, in just six days I visited two most wonderful countries of the world, we started from Washington and ended at Toronto. During the journey I visited different places some reflecting natural beauty like Niagara falls and some depicting history and education like the white house , empire state building and statue of liberty. I recommend everybody to go for this six day life changing journey.
The bus tour was good. The tour operator did all that he had mentioned. So it was fantastic. I am more than pleased that we chose this bus tour operator than the others. I did so after going through the reviews and I value it.
A well spent time, all went good right from our driver who drove us with patience and the guide was knowledgeable. We had no difficulty from the time of boarding the bus. The 6 day tour took to Toronto, Washington DC, Montreal, New York, Boston, and many more.
The best we had was at the Toronto, New York City, Niagara Falls, and of course the Old Town Montreal. There was just so much to do in our course of the journey. Our travel guide on the bus such a remarkable person who had been a great assistance. We took really images, and the trip was even more wonderful since my whole family had a great time on board. I just can’t thank enough. We would definitely board another bus trip on my next vacations. Great experience!
Glad, we toured the Niagara Falls from both American and Canadian side which made us explore every inch of it. The Maid & Mist cruising truly made the difference, it was one of my unforgettable Niagara Falls experiences. We also explored the best out of Quebec and Montreal, particularly our buses on which we traveled were quite fine, and the hotels also deserve a massive applause along we great services we have been provided with. Cheers to all!
