The tunnel is a great way to travel from Detroit to Windsor and vice versa. You land in the centre of downtown and can easily find your way to and from that point.

I don’t know how I’m supposed to write a review But no water came in. So I suppose it should have five stars. It’s just a good way to get into Canada. Easy. Holiday weekends you’ll have a line.

Less truck traffic compared to the bridge. Customs was a breeze, but then we only travel with as little as possible.

A great way to get from downtown Windsor to downtown Detroit. You can go by bus or car without a great deal of problems. I just dont understand why it costs more to return to Canada

Big trucks cant go into the tunnel but they can on the bridge. Avoid unnecessary traffic and take the tunnel.

Its a long tunnel, don't get stuck behind a car with a sketchy diesel exhaust. The border people are irritable, and have no sense of humor. Next time I will go through Port Huron.

I haven't used the tunnel in a while, but it was fun when we did you use it a couple of times. It's an almost forgotten part of the transportation system in Detroit-Windsor. It's access on the US side is a little hard to find...More
