An extraordinary trip with my wife makes us happy and relaxed. the places we get to tour on this bus tour were quite amazing. I loved to visit Niagara Fall and Montmorency River, it mesmerizes me. where memorable historical sites heightened the pleasure of our trip. The buses are comfortable and tour guides and drivers provided their best services. I would suggest not to shop in the start of trip, you can get a good variety at Quincy Market.
We all friends made a plan to have a trip that must include modern sites, historical memories along with natural beauty. This tour was nothing less than our entire plan. Staring from New York City we visited so many amazing places. CN tower and Harvard University greater the pleasure of our trip. We enjoyed the shopping experience. Our Tour guide was a good man he introduces good food places for food lovers like us. One of my friends is planning to go again with his family. Condition of busses are good but accommodation was satisfactory it needs improvement.
