bus driver & tour guide

There is absolutely no communication between bus drivers..they just drive make a pit stop and say nothing as to why, and what time do we stay to, you have to ask every step of the way. Tour guides were informative and great!..Bus company and drivera have no personality...I am a big tipper but no tips here.

Intense

We did both excursions two days in a row and it was too much, nobody explained to us that we could do it two days that were not consecutive. We had very little information about the excursions, we had to call to find out how it was. We arrived the first day at 4.00 to do the Niagara excursion and they told us that we had to wait 1 hour for the Washington excursion. The bus was not fancy, it was regular and for so many hours it was not comfortable

Tours well organized, more time for breakfast needed

The tours are well organized, considering the distances overall from NY to Niagara Fals. The timing has been well respected. Only negative thing as the tours start very early in the morning should be must previewed a break during the trips for breakfast as has been managed for dinner. Everything else has been well managed, it’s a pity you don’t have this tour with italian guide but we understood the guide thanks to spanish and english meantime version.
