Stephen "This was our first ever escorted tour. We wanted to visit the places covered by the tour and this was a perfect way to do it. We especially wanted to visit Niagara Falls so we stayed there ourselves for 2 days pre-tour and spent the first tour day in the city of Toronto rather than re-visit the Falls.

    The coach was old and uncomfortable. The guide only cared about the people who paid for the optional trips not and there was not enough included in the trip we were left all day to ourselves

    Although the tour guide was knowledgeable but he happened to be sarcastic, and lacked social tact. He would invariably rush people who were on a vacation like a military drill sergeant and would shout at people if they were late by even a minute to the bus.

    The pickup service of our suitcases from the bus to our rooms and vise-versa was a surprise, and highly appreciated. Of course there are always possibilities to improve: Common breakfast would have facilitated the mornings and redused the stress before leaving. - A name tag with each poarticipant's first name -

    Great tour, would have liked a "get to know you" drink on the first night to meet the travel group & if Cosmos was able to pre-organise tickets to visit the Parliament in Ottawa it would be good as they ran out by 11am (when we were doing the bus tour). I understand that cost is an issue but providing breakfasts would be preferred as going out or shopping was a first for me & I've done a LOT of tours.

    This was our first ever escorted tour. We wanted to visit the places covered by the tour and this was a perfect way to do it. We especially wanted to visit Niagara Falls so we stayed there ourselves for 2 days pre-tour and spent the first tour day in the city of Toronto rather than re-visit the Falls. Highlights of the tour for us were Ottawa and Quebec City. The optional trips to CN Tower (dinner) and Maple Syrup Shack (breakfast) are recommended. Other optional trips may eat into your own time to explore (e.g. Montréal) but the flexibility is there to make your own choices. The hotel accommodation is good with spacious, well-equipped rooms. The coach travel is broken up with regular stops so it was never uncomfortable. Suitcases are handled for you between the coach and your room (and back again) at every hotel. The tour group was a pleasant mix of ages with couples approx 20s to 70s and a few single travellers. The tour guide, Scott, and driver, Dave, were both excellent. The tour is exactly as described so, if it's what you want, we are sure you will enjoy the whole experience - we did.

    The tour was all that had been promised. We have one comment that we hope is useful: it relates to accommodations containing baths with shower over, rather than separate showers. If your target traveller is 65+ years, as we are, separate showers instead of baths are more suitable (and safer).

    Some hotels were way out of town leaving you stranded if not taking the optional trip. The Quebec dinner option was an absolute rip off - it cost $65?/$66 but the restaurant was offering the same meal (without coffee and one small soup course for $37 to anyone walking past (so we conned out of $28 for transport, a cup of coffee and a small cup of soup)

    the trip was just what we expected. Our guide Gladys was wonderful and our coach driver Dave was excellent. The excursions were fine. We enjoyed the tour, the company and the accommodation.

    Your website was very simple to use. I was able to find exactly what I wanted and when I wanted my tour. The price was also a big factor in choosing your company. As I have done a Cosmos tour before, I knew it would be good value for the price.
