It is worth
Soudi_N, June 2023
I searched a lot to choose this tour…I had gone same tour years ago much experience ( it covered New York, as well)…now, I can say that it worth for money Our tour leader okeyee showed us everything based on program…he is very knowledgeable…he was not caring much to walk slow,when running to show you around but it was ok The first bus did not have WIFI…they gave us the code but not working …the second bus was Better…All hotels very good and clean with pool We had very nice time and visit lots of places in short time

Tips for reservations, good trip.
Betty_M, Nov 2022
I think that they could have found a better alternative for the second day. It was a long stop at a shopping outlet. Even my friends that like to shop at these, thought it was wasted time. We could have seen more historical areas, or stopped to shop in an old town. Anything but a shopping outlet. The plus side was that it started snowing lightly, which was fun for the foreigners who had never seen snow. A few tips for anyone considering this trip. First, it was very good. We ran into an issue when we booked three people on each reservation (two reservations) for a total of six people on two reservations. Two of the people traveling did not have access to a passport, so they did not cross over into Canada. That left us without a room. The website said we would return to the USA but they had us stay in Canada. Four people can't stay in a room there. Anyway, we had to pay out of pocket for a room because Viator would not make it right. So be careful. Book every two people a reservation. They really have a lot on the agenda, so be ready to walk a lot. I enjoyed it but it was a little hard for some. Other than that it was good.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Hello Betty Thank you for your review We are glad that you enjoyed your time on our tour. It truly is the best way to pack the best of Niagara into a few days. Our tour is subject to all Hotel and Canadian government policies. You booked two rooms for 6 people and then wanted to change your configuration during the tour. We are happy to accommodate where we can, however we have to ensure that all of the proper policies are followed. We look forward to hosting you again soon Stephanie Empire Vacations

Linda_Y, Nov 2022
On 1st day i was overwhelmed coz as first time traveler i have no experience the tour guide asked for physical passport so i did not go to Canada. On 2nd day instructions by tour guide to put my luggages on the lobby i did but they were not being transferred to the bus luggage compartment. When we checked in at Fairfield Alexandria, Virginia i had to buy clothes and toiletries because i have sensitive skin for the following day trip.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Hello Linda! Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a great overall experience. As mentioned in the Tour description, Canada is a different country and as pert their laws is necessary to bring your physical passport. We look forward to hosting you on your next tour. You can always use the 1-800 number that we provide with your booking prior to departure and confirm that you have everything you need. We provide service 24/7. Stephanie Empire Vacations

Very very desorganized but good views of Niagara and the cities
Ana_S, June 2022
The departure on June 2nd was at 6h30 but we leave at 8h or more, a big delay. It was very very very desorganized, it was a big group and the guide to Niagara couldn't handle the situation with those passengers that are delayed everytime we have a bus stop No wi fi on the bus at all The hotels were too far from the cities there's are in no man's land.... A positive thing was the guide in Filadélfia and Washington a truly professional guide
Response from Host, June 2022
Hi Ana, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Unfortunately there was a morning emergency which delayed our departure. I am glad you enjoyed the views. Mike Amadeo Team

Great tour, informative guide. Rooms, overall were good. A lot of ground was covered but was necessary to get where we were going.
4 day niagara fall
brenda_l, Aug 2019
The first 2 days of the trip were great Jonathan was a fabulous tour guide. He explained everything from the time we got on the bus including where we were going where to go to the bathroom etc. There were 3 different languages spoke on the bus and there was not a problem I could not ask for a better guide and he was the guide I would take this trip again. We were with him for 2 days and I can't say enough about how he is he should be a trainer for the other People. Starting day 3 we met up with Bruno with the ponytail The trip could not have been worse there was never any explanations as to where anything was 95% up the language Was in Spanish I took the trip with my 2:00 teenage granddaughters to give them a lesson abound history in our country .There were several things I did not like first of all Bruno is not from this country or does not care about this country he spoke to my granddaughters about well I don't think you'll like this trip it's all about history and he spoke in a negative to way when I was not around .I made a point to tell him that my granddaughter's parents were a firefighter and military thinking that maybe he would at least respect our country no even after that who was a joke about all the dead People at Arlington . Myself and other People that were English speaking granite there was not as many as there was Spanish did not even understand when he said where the bathroom was because all of that was in Spanish so we just sit there looking like we had no idea what to do .He made negative comments thinking it was a joke about the Arlington memorial the most important thing in Washington DC was poor Forrest Gump Matt Jenny if someone is taking a trip to see Washington DC and to learn about the history of the United States then Bruno is not the one to go with if you do not speak Spanish Bruno is not the one to go with unless you want to go on a trip that is all a joke and is all fun and games Bruno is not the one to go with . I'm thinking that maybe these two guys were working for different companies because there were nowhere near uh like as far as tours go. Jonathan was fabulous Was trained and was very professional. Bruno on the other hand was a poor excuse unless you're on a party bus. Because I spent over $2000 to do this trip and was very disappointed I will NEVER do this trip again. I feel bad because I really enjoyed the first 2 days everything depends on the tour guide that you have and hopefully this will be taken into account and more training can be done to ensure that People gone to certain places and paying good money will get what they paid for . I don't know if this was the fault of Viator or if it was Empire Tours the name of the company that I took. please be aware.
Preferred More Time in Niagara Falls
Darlene_C, July 2019
The tour guides were very courteous and full of knowledgeable of fun-filled facts. Would’ve preferred to not had extended stopovers at Seneca Falls and the Outlet Shopping Mall. The hiking tour at Seneca Falls was unorganized - no warning that we were going on a hiking trip. People were not physically fit or had the wrong pair of shoes on. The hotel accommodations were 2-3 star. Didn’t enjoy the transition from first bus to another bus with another set of tour guides. The busses were clean and the bus drivers were skilled drivers as well as helpful and friendly. Wish we had inside tours of Congress and/or the White House. Overall, the tours enabled us to enjoy the sites without the big crowds.
Great locations, Average tour guides.
Companion10154808905, Jan 2019
Sigh. The locations and sites on this tour were excellent. Some of the views in Niagara were breathtaking and the buildings in Washington had very significant historical meaning for American history. The tour guides were somewhat knowledgeable and engaging however when they digressed off their scripts it would largely involve political jokes about the sitting president, Donald Trump. As a young foreigner it wasn't really a big deal, but cmon guys if you are going to make jokes at least try to say them without tears in your eyes. I would laugh if it wasn't so sad.

Elaine R, June 2018
This was an amazing tour. Bruno our tour guy was unbelievable. He had so much knowledge and was just full of so many interesting facts. Nothing was a problem. A real people person. Harold our driver for the first 2 days was friendly and very sociable. A must do trip.

Hermosa experiencia el tiempo bien aprobechado, solo el cementerio no fue tan interesante, y no pudimos hacer las balsas en cataratas por el agua congelada, fuimos en mayo y nos perdinos esa excursión y la de los tuneles porque no sacamos visa a canadá. RECOMENDACIÓN sacar visa canadiense porque si se pierden cosas. Muy recomendable
