Faith, our tour guide, called the night before to check in and answer questions. We were delayed leaving next day by late comers. Once on our way the tour covered everything stated. It was well organized with clean rest stops and well-known franchised restaurants. Tour guide Faith and bus driver worked incredibly hard to get us to our destinations in a timely manner and provide us with history and information about the sites we were visiting. Faith did this in both English and Chinese, flawlessly. Hotels had nice accommodations and free Wi-Fi except for Niagara Falls where the hotel was simply dishonest with everyone in our tour and other travelers. We had plenty of time to visit most sites, except Ottawa was rushed and more time would have been nice. Definitely plan to travel with Tours4Fun again. Tour guide and bus driver definitely deserved and earned their $8 per day tip, which is standard for most tour companies. To go everyplace and see everything you have to be on the bus early in the morning and be prepared for long, tiring days. This is non-inclusive which means to keep the price down everyone has to pay for their own meals. Actually, this gives you more flexibility, although the meals arranged by the tour guide (rotating Skylon, Chinese Dim Sum and French dinner were worth the money charged and meant you didn't have to spend time searching for a reliable restaurant). Weather prevented outdoor visit to Chasm on last day and we went to Woodbury Commons where everyone scattered, didn't listen to tour guide about time and place to meet, and went wild shopping. This was the least enjoyable part of the trip due to crowds and lack of bargains. Made friends from other countries with whom I will keep in touch. We were truly an international group and got along well. Traveling with Tours4Fun takes the strain and stress out of having to find the right routes, rest stops, restaurants. Would have liked to know which hotels had pool and their closing time to swim and unwind after a long day.
