Mrs Sau Hardwick

Hotels are in central location with easy access to places of interests. Tour director and driver are knowledgable and helpful. However, we only had half a day in Montreal and missed out open air concerts and other celebrations in town. Some of the group were too tired to enjoy the Montreal afternoon city tour. A second night in Montreal would be ideal. Day 2 Niagara Falls/ helicopter ride/ CN Tower dinner - I feel there are too many optional excursions on the same day with too little time to enjoy Niagara Falls.

Well organised, plenty to see....
