Trip: Liked everything but Kingston. It was not that charming and I would have MUCH preferred a water tour of Thousand Islands. With more information and coordination, I would have taken this tour on my own rather than walk around town or shop. We needed more free time in Ottawa and Quebec. I needed more information on tours I could take on my own in these cities. For example, I did not know that the carriage rides were informational tours, and I even asked the Quebec guide that boarded our bus.
Service: Our tour guide Ben was excellent. He was entertaining on the long drives, and when we arrived at a hotel, we were entertained in various ways until our rooms were ready.

Trip: Itinerary was okay, however, there was too much bus time from one city to another
Service: Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, the coach driver was very nice also The major problem we had was too little time from getting checked into our hotels (rooms weren't ready) to having to be back down in the lobby to board coach for dinner. Too much rushing, not enjoyable😕😟

Trip: loved the itinerary covered all i wanted to see
Service: overall all good except for lack of information at certain times
11 August, 2018
Trip: As above, except for the dinners, no different to an ordinary insight tour.
Service: Hotels, dinners, driving and concierge were good but the local guides were not and after spending hours on a bus driving the last thing one needs is a boring talk and more driving!!! City tours could be better and less time wasted in line in the hot sun, I should think that once paying for a Luxary tour, quick entry into sights was part of the deal.
