Great tour with enough breaks. We had a choice of sleeping on the Canadian or Canadian side. The hotel in Canada was great. The falls were impressive. We really enjoyed the boat tour. The bus was air-conditioned and we had free wifi. Only the stay at Watkins Glen and the outlet stores (1.5 hours) was a bit short when traveling as a family. But this trip is worth it.
