This was our first tour with TakeTours from New York to Niagara Falls 2 days one night, it was well arranged tour, our guide Miss Zoey Qu was too good, she managed the trip very well, shared a good amount of information of all the places we visited like Corning museum of glass ,watkins glen state park , old fort museum and all other related information. The place where we stayed was also very nice WYNDHAM hotel. I would suggest to take the tour if planning for 2 day tour.
I have been on 5 tours with this company through the years and i must say that our tour guide suki wang was the best ever and they have all been good. She was lnowledgeable, organized, punctual, efficient and friendly. The itinerary was superb and we had
The perfect amount of time. I had some doubt as to the necessity of the indepth tour but i was thrilled i went on it because the views were unparalleled to a trip i took which didnt offer this option in the past
Thus was a truly phenomenal tour. Thank you.
Great tour to visit Niagara Falls and other places near to the city. The guide and the bus driver were very friendly people that helped us to visit as many places as we could. The only problem we had was that the bus got stuck for some time the first day so reduced the time the time that we had to visit the Corning Museum of Glass but after that, I can say it was an amazing trip. 100% recommended.
This Tour really awesome! I love our tour guide! Ruby Jia! She is so smart, sweet, and friendly. Niagara falls is amazing and gorgeous (Maid of the Mist is the best attraction). But the journey is kind of long.
I am glad I chose this tour package. The selection of attractions is perfect, and fits decently into the time allotted. Rachel Chen and Kiko Li are both excellent tour guides with an amazing attitude, pleasant style and calm approach to tour guest queries, requests and even problems! I had a perfect break from work with this tour, and the best way I could tell this was from the relaxed smiles on my selfies taken at amazing waterfalls along the Watkins Glenn Gorge trail. Yes, take the attractions package once you're on board with Rachel and Kiko, you'll be the happier for it.
I love this tour package; it was excellent. The guide Mr Zack was very cooperative, he guided us very effectively. He is very humorous. Everyone in our bus likes him. The package covered all of the beautiful places in the Niagra. I recommend anyone can take this package and enjoy the scenic view in Niagra.
The whole 2 day tours were amazing. We got to see many great sightseeings placing along our trip to Niagara fall. Mathew is an awesome , helpful, and friendly tour guide that you can count on. Mr. Leo, a bus driver, provided us a smooth and safe transport from NYC to niagara. He also supported us to get out from the bus safely. Thanks to Mathew and Mr. Leo. Each tour time is very precise and the price is reasonable. We really enjoy this wonderful trip, and highly recommends. There is a recommendation we would like to make. If the hotel includes breakfast this would be great.
It was really memorable trip and had lots of fun. The driver was professional. Everything was awesome. Hospitality and management of tour manager (KAYLIE and EMMA) was perfect. They were friendly and helpful. I was really impressed. Keep it up this service.
The tour was really interesting and well organized and marvelous as well,We traveled (June 1-2) with Nancy Qiu & Emma Jia: professional, precise, kind, passionate and with a great attitude.I will recommend this to all of my friends and relatives as well. Obviously i will try to make another tour to another destination with Nancy Qiu and Emma Jia, Really i loved this tour
What impressed me was the hotel, great and clean. It was the lowest price but the best trip. The tour guide Rachel Shu is very friendly and professional. I look forward to booking another tour in the future.
My friend and I had an amazing time at the Niagara waterfalls. Our guide Ken Fung was excellent and made the trip even more special. Excellent hotel, service and very comfortable bus. Definitely recommended to all.
it was a amazing tour with Rachel(the tour guide). I thought the Niagara Tour was about the wonder of mother earth, but she told us the story between Edison, JP Morgan, Westinghouse and Tesla, that was surprised me. She also introdued the low-E glass from Corning Company. I've learn a lot this time!
I booked the tour for my families, they told me they enjoyed the tour even the weath and traffic were very bad. tour guide racheal help them a lot(my fimalied don't speak english) and driver mr.lin did a great job.i will highly recommend this tour to my friends and coworkers.
Joined 2D1N nigara falls tour that lead by Ms Lilian. The tour was well organized, tour guide is knowledgeable and helpful. Ms Lilian worked hard to make sure that everyone can have a great time. Journey was smooth as we can see that the tour guide and driver had communicated well. Would recommend this company to friends and family.
Kenney Huang , our tour guide , was best guide ever I met. He's very kind and also good at English, so that I can understand very well. I'll recommend to my friends to go Niagara falls with Taketour. And actually he is very gentle and handsome.
Very nice tour. We did a lot of things and was constantly moving. We covered a lot in a short time frame. The guide Nicki was ok. The driver was rude. No excuse for that. Overall it was worth it and would do it again with a different driver.
The tour was good and offers the best time management possible. Did not have to waste time in queing up for tickets at attractions. Our tour Guide Jayan was very friendly and we were happy to pay the service fee at the end of the tour.
Thank you very much for your service. You were a very patient person because managing a group of so many natinalties is complicated, but you know how to do it. You did a great job! Thanks again for everything, Lilian He (the tour guide). From Mike & Karen
Great tour! Visited a lot of places. The tour is well planned and organized. Lilian He, the tour guide, is very friendly and she gives as a clear instructions. The booked hotels were comfortable and clean. Lilian provided a lot of interesting information and facts. She is just Awesome!
I had really great time with my mom. My guide, Lillian was so kind and great! I used the other company for similar package, I had bad experience with other coampany. That's why I hestiated to take the package for Niagara. But, this time.. I'm really satified with thr service with reasonable price.
Only one thing I hope to improve in this package is the status of bus... I could see lots of dust between the seats. Needed to clean up the bus.. and I felt too cold in the bus with AC on...
Thank you, the driver Mr. Chen and guide MS. Lillian!
We took this tour last month and it was amazing. Definitely worth it! Eva our tour guide was so nice, and well informed about the places we visited. The coach and the hotel were excellent as well. We enjoyed it very much :)
Absolute Value for Money tour package. Highly recommended.
1) Watkin Glen State Park was amazing. Beautiful nature carved out rocks and waterfalls. Just a word of caution for elderly people, there is a lot of stairs going up and down.
2) Maid of the Mist was brilliant. No words can describe it.
3) Old Fort Niagara - Beautiful place by the river. Super scenic view and old forts and live gun show.
4) Whirlpool Park - Nice place. Very scenic.
5) Native American or Indian Dance show - Expensive and absolute waste of money. You can watch those over NGC or Discovery channel. Nothing great. Avoid at any cost.
Overall highly recommended package and tours and travel operator.
Pleasantly surprised by this trip! The pit stops along the way took us through different states that made the trip even more fun. Leslie our tour guide was informative and friendly! The bus and the hotel were nice and clean and all the attractions were breathtaking! I would definitely recommend !
This tour was great. Niagara falls is absolutely beautiful and the maid of the mist is a must do to be able to get the full experience and see both the NY and Canada side of the falls. We were able to stay to see the illumination of the falls which was beautiful. We left at about 9:20pm to go to our hotel, about 30mins away from the falls. Watkins Glen is gorgeous and unlike any we'd seen before. The natural structure of the park is truly a must see. Overall we enjoyed this trip and highly recommend it to anyone. Our tour guide Davina was also awesome!!
Overall tour was pretty enjoyable and adhered to the itinerary. Day 1 we stopped by Watkins Glen and walked through the Gorge Trail which was super scenic and a good break to stretch out those legs from the bus ride. We continued on to Niagra Falls and reached there before sunset to catch the Native American dance show prior to wrapping up the evening with the Niagra Fall's night viewing. The hotel we stayed at was Best Western Inn which was about a half hour drive. Room was spacious and clean, our tour guide Rachel made sure to stick around until we checked that our rooms were in good condition (very thoughtful). Day 2, we had free breakfast at the hotel and then headed out to the Old Fort Niagra Scenic Tour where we visited forts built but the French and the British...also very scenic. Followed by the Whirlpool area of Niagra Falls. Last but not least we headed back over to Niagra Falls for the Maid of the Mist boat tour, amazing to say the least. On the way back, I realized I had left my phone behind at the Welcome Center but our tour guide Rachel was super on top of it and actually had someone find it and bring it back to NY (2 thumbs up!). I really suggest this tour, not only is the price amazing but it was thoroughly enjoyable!
The tour overall was a great experience, if you are travelling alone for the first time. Special thanks to our tour guide Gary, being so responsible and cooperative at the same time which helped us to get the best experience! The hotel room was not very great, but was okay.
we took this tour from NYC to Niagra and it was pretty decent and economical(paid for two and got the third one off). I had lots of apprehension about the kind of stay they where going to put us in but it turned up pretty good(Mariott hotel). We had to pay for the attraction tickets which was not part of the package and that's fair enough since they also allow the flexibility to pick and choose. Some of the attractions like "Cave of the winds" & "Maid of the mist" is missing from the tour. Overall i felt its value for money. Our tour guide Rachel Xu was too good, informative and was fun to be with. I definitely recommend this tour.
Frankly speaking amazing trip.. People coming to NY please plan for this tour.. Our guide was Eva, we really want to appreciate her as her professionalism and attention to detail made all the difference for a truly memorable bus ride.. Our driver Kim, she was very experienced in her job. Her behaviour was very friendly during the trip.
Please note this trip does not add caves of the winds. One of the must thing to do here.. please go for proper trip which includes caves of the winds.. trip follows strict timing.. so you can not plan for other things in the trip.. overall awesome.. Thanks Taketours, guide Eva, care taker bus driver Kim..
The best part of the trip was Rachel (our guide). She was very systematic and disciplined. She could manage the trip with so many passengers smoothly.
I didn't like the food stops (on the way and near Niagara). Also, we didn't get time to have our course meals properly.
I been there on 2 days Niagara tour on July 4th 2017 along with my parents. I will remember this tour because of charming, informative tour guide "Rachel Xu". She is very energetic and caring tour girl with same energy for the entire two days tour. Accommodation at courtyard in buffalo was great and wouldn't expected such luxury hotel in this much tour cost. I will recommend this tour for others due to tour guide Rachel Xu and accommodation.
We four friend with families and our children have been to Niagara tour with Take Tours on 07/22/2017 to 07/23/2014.
Started the journey in the morning from Flushing. From home we booked a cab and got down at the spot mentioned at the itinerary. We have already got a message from the tour guide that I will be your guide for two days. When we called after reaching at bus spot, the guide came and guided to the bus.
That's the start of our fun and enjoyment of our whole journey.
We all have been there with lots of enthusiasm to see the new spots. At every point guide have been very much helpful to us. We reached at Watkins Glen, the place filled with all natural beauty. The path was cutting side of the hill and filled with natural scenery of water and trees. Amazing site.
At around evening we reached at Niagara. Immediately we rushed towards the night view. What a beautiful Night View scene. Completed and checked in at Hotel. The Hotel was very nice and very luxurious filled with all amenities.
Next Day we say a Fort named old Fort. It was very amazing to see the Soldiers presentation. On the way we say one river view and went to the most attractive place maid of the Mist. We felt really amazing. What a wonderful sight. Life becomes incomplete if we do not come to Niagara once staying in US perhaps. The ship was very close to the fall and water was sprinkling over the head. Excellent memory. A MUST GO & Amazing experience. One of the rare experience is that I met one of my friend from India, there on the Ship. Just felt like the world is very small place. Me, my little girl and my wife all enjoyed it. My friends and their family also enjoyed very much.
After we returned to see the movie niagara Falls Adventure Movie show some history and important theme about the Niagara Falls.
I must say you go once to Niagara Trip.
The tour services are the Best one I think. Made our journey very comfortable.
We express our sincere thanks to Take Tours for making an awesome trip. Our sincere thanks the drivers too for his patience.
Lastly the Guide Rachel Xi became one our very good friend. She is just awesome and very active always. Indeed very helpful at each and every point. The way she explains, takes care and keeping control of the tour is really praise worthy. Hats off to your efforts, sincerity, enthusiasm, true spirit and the best services Rachel You made the trip more memorable. Praying for Almighty blessings to give the correct reward for your sincerity. You are the Best.. Without any doubt Rachel is the Best. XieXie Rachel The only Chinese word I know . Thanks a lot Rachel Xi for all your much needed help and support throughout our tour.
It was a very satisfying experience and I would recommend it to my friends. The tour guides were well-versed, diligent and helpful, making sure to contact each head of party to ensure promptness. We were booked at Holiday Inn with very good amenities and close to a breakfast chain of restaurants. The main inconvenience was the lack of charging outlets for phones. The company must install the electrical outlets in the bus (#32) we used to be consistent with other buses with state of the art charging stations for each passenger.
The Niagara tour was a fun experience for me and my two friends which was their first time. The side tours like the Watkins Glen State Park and the Old Fort Niagara were really interesting. Our tour guide, Jayant, did an amazing job. We learned some history from him.
I had taken this tour on 13 September 2016. Our tour guide was Allen and he did a great job as a tour guide. It was a bilingual tour, but he cared the English guys as like the Chinese ones.As it takes 8 hours to reach either side, there was stop after 2 hours for restroom and drinks. The attractions are completely optional and can pay for the attractions you choose. First we visited Watkins Glenn state park and it is not recommended for those who have knee and leg problems. But for those who choose to take up the attraction, get ready to walk 700 steps but the attraction was so good. it is recommended. the thundering water cultural show is not so recommended , so is the imax movie. We get to see the night view and day view as well. The hotel for stay was Holiday Inn and the stay was good. Second day attractions are all recommended and must see. Allen had great itinerary and our team were all punctual. The stops for food were good, as we had options for Chinese, American and Indian as well.
My tour guide was Dimon and he was good. He tried to continue our tour as possible as he could because it was raining at that time. The accommodation was better than I expected so I really appreciated that. The overall of the tour went well so I think I will travel with Taketour again. :D
The tour guide was Ms. Olivia. She was curt to customers. Maybe she is overworked, if so, should take it easy. Radisson hotel miles away from Niagara falls was a great disappointment. Lights, toilet flush did not work. Wall paper peeled off. Not well kept. Seemed like a seedy motel and not befitting the Radisson label. Bus was great with comfortable seats. But the AC was dripping water on the seats. Some panels are broken. Wonder how USDOT approved this bus for plying. The driver was very professional and well mannered. Avoid most of the paid packages offered. At Niagara Falls only Maid of the Mist is worth the charge. Value not commensurate with the price charged.
