  • Our tour guide Lilian was really good. She gave us plenty of time at each place. I just came back today. Watkins Glen State Park is a really pretty hike. Our hotel in Niagara Falls was right near the pedestrian path to Canada and the fireworks display was a very nice show.

  • Liliana was an excellent tour guide! She held everyone very organized and on time! The itinerary was designed well and we enjoyed all the attractions. For future reference, a few hotels do have pools so bring a swimming suit. We were only suggested a food court near the Niagara Falls Park that we weren't interested in. However, after searching extensively we found a wonderful buffet in the Seneca Falls Casino. The food options were amazing from meats, seafood, pizza, salads, fruits, pastas, and a grand selection of desserts, etc for a good price! Overall, great tour and second time taking a tour with taketours!
