the tour started out fine, but there was one caveat, our tour guide could barely speak English, there were a lot of Asian tourists on board with us and he seems to be helping them only. Anyhow, as the tour progressed. When we reach Niagara Falls, I started to have some fun, it was so beautiful. I would highly recommend everyone to visit the places mention in the tour, as to get the finest experience of our country’s major tourist’s places. If there were less admission charges, the tour might have been perfect for me.

it was a remarkable tour; we visited so many places that I could not mention all of them in detail. I can certainly pick the favorite place of all—Niagara Falls. The walk along the Niagara Park was so mesmerizing; I really had the best time of my time. If time could permit I would join you guys more on the adventures. Plus the night we spent at the Niagara Falls was also remarkable. My experience was just fine.
