This tour is advertised as a budget tour at $200 for a 4 day bus tour from New York city. Bus pick up 8:50 am in Parsippany New Jersey (no return to same pick up. Bus pick up also in Flushing (7:00 am) and China Town (8:00am). Corning glass visit good. Arrived Niagara Falls at 8:00 pm. Delayed 1 1/2 hours by border official because tour guide had collected $273 per person in cash for entry fees and restuarants for the 4 days. It was over the $10,000 allowed to be taken into Canada. The guide indicated that he was fined $2,400 and his company would not pay for it. The hotel in Niagara Falls was less than a one star but clean. Ist morning bus tour started at 7:40am. 2nd morning and 3rd 5:45 am!. Niagara Falls were great, Travelled to Toronto had lunch in the tower ($30 per person) and informative harbor boat tour. Hotel that night was good. 3rd day traveled to 1000 islands, boat tour - good. Ottowa visited just the Parliment building (1 1/2 hour). Montreal olympic indoor stadium animal exhibit tour was good, Would recommend taking only a 3 day tour, and returning after 1000 thousand island portion. Ottowa and Montreal not really worth all the travelling in the bus. Bus broke down on the trip back to New York on last day and a local bus had to be obtained to meet another bus that drove up from New York (6 hour drive). Missed the last day visit to the Chasm, because of the bus problem. Won't be taking another bus tour.
The bus operator offers a low rate for the bus ride and hotels ($200) but there is an added expense for attractions and meals($273 plus other meals at Burger king and Macdonals). The meals are of poor qualty, mostly at Chinese restuarants (50% of travelers are Chinese). If you don't want Chinese there are few alternatives if any. English and Chinese is spoken by the tour guide. Overall would like to spend more time at the attractions and less time being driven in the bus. Tour tries to cover too many attractions.
