Our guide Mayan was so perfect. Very well organized and she would tell us all the time what to expect. I loved all the destinations, there was enough time for everything, and we'll never forget this awesome tour. i have already recommended it to friends and family.
We LOVED this tour! The motor coach was very comfortable and clean. Peter the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and provided interesting stories.The itinerary included lots of amazing stops and the hotel stays were clean and comfortable. Lots of beautiful places with ample time to enjoy and take pictures.
I would highly recommend this tour.
We loved this trip, it provided an excellent overview of the area we were visiting - we spent quite a bit of the time in Canada which was lovely. The accommodation was good and the tour guides were very good - we had a lovely time and enjoyed the experience. We also took our 2 children 10 and 8 and they were fine travelling - so recommended for families too.
This tour was honestly the best three days of my life.
The tour guides were amazing, funny, informative and extremely organised.
We got to see and do some amazing things and I will be forever grateful that this tour was my first Niagara falls experience.
It was great! Saw lots in three days everything was beautiful.
It was a mom and teen son trip we had a blast he had wifi and I didn't have to drive. Our guide Stephanos was so wonderful he took care of all the Italian guests and we were 2 of 4 English speaking but did not feel out of place. My son was thrilled to see the falls and ride the maid of the most the highlight as well as Watkins Glenn and all the small towns along Lake Ontario. Toronto was somewhere I had never gone so it was nice to spend time in the distillery district. We are not shoppers so didn't care much for the outlets but needed to get out of the bus by than anyway. It was quite a bit of walking but we enjoyed the beautiful weather. Thanks Cool Destinations
A very well organised tour, packed with activities each day. The tour guides were excellent, informative/good knowledge of the sites, history etc.. The accommodation was very good in both cases. Excellent value for money ! The selection of sites and activities visited catered for a number of interests.
Checked off one of my must do's on my bucket list. An awesome ride in a comfortable tour bus. Our tour guide handled all the different languages on the bus with ease. I recommend this tour.
