The tour was as described by the company. The directions for transfers from the airport to the arrival hotel were adequate from Cosmos. The transfer company did not give clear directions on where to meet the driver. This was very frustrating. The city tours were primarily conducted on the bus. If you were on the wrong side of the bus, you saw very little of what was being described. We did a rapid bus tour of Montreal. The tour guide was so boring and the inability to see the buildings put most of us to sleep. We checked into the hotel in late afternoon and most historic places were closed. Those of us who were leaving the next day did not get to explore them. If I were to take this tour again, I would extend my stay one or two days after the tour end so that I could see some of Montreal. All of the optional excursions except the CN Tower were well worth doing. The CN Tower was good to see; however, the meal was below average in service and taste--and yet it was the most expensive meal we had. I suggest seeing the CN Tower independently and foregoing the expensive, wretched meal.

Tour director, marisol, was excellent and added to the value. Driver Steve, also excellent.

I was disappointed that no meals were included and for the price I paid, they could have been.

Hotel accomodations were good except for the one in Ottawa. I suggest it should be changed for a better one. The hotel is well located but is too old, has only two small elevators and all the hotel has carpets with a bad smell.
