I'm going to Niagara Falls Ontario in Sept. Does anyone know of a reputable tour company? I want someone that would drive me to all of the attractions, as I won't have a car.
Im planning a trip to Canada going from Montreal to Halifax with a rental car. Checking the classic rental car companies i see they apply a quite expensive one way drop charge. Are you aware of any rental car company who does not apply it and has a reasonable fare.

Now I am looking for an affordable accommodation for a night.My husband is going with me and we are budget travelers, so just looking for clean bed to sleep and a clean washroom.
Thanks inn advance.
P.S if there any other suggestion beside park bus , pls feel free to share.
Suggestions on things to do and see. Most of the tips are for things that are at least an hour away.
I'm planning to visit Toronto at the end of March just around Easter. Found some information that most shops are only closed on 'Good Friday' and there is not really a second Easter day. Are the other days around Easter easy with a lot of shops open and does it get really crowded with tourists?
Thanks in advance,
I am planning to visit a welding school ( http://www.weldtechtraining.com/ ) on July 27 to inquire the details about the certifications they provide for students from the U.S in person and its whereabouts. I am planning to stay at Mississauga for a few days and hang out places nearby that is entertaining and has other recreations as well. I wish to stay in well furnished hotel (prefer to have budget rooms) that has Mexican restaurants nearby.
I am a total newbie to Whistler and will be coming for both this coming winter (arrive late October) and staying on to do a Summer.
Because I've never been there I don't know what jobs are considered better. I have been offered work in the guest services area of the Fairmont as well as working for the mountain in retail.
Just wondering if anyone had any ideas on whether Fairmont has a good reputation for being a good place to work, Ok pay etc? Just trying to weight it up against the pros of working for the mountain and getting a season pass etc.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

We will visit Niagara Falls (with two seniors), in a couple of weeks. While they are both in overall good health, one has a weakened knee and the other a less than youthful lower back. Please share about the walking involved at Niagara Falls, Ontario? Is transportation (taxis, shuttles) available and convenient? We have accommodations at the Marriott Falls View, and I was wondering about the walk to the Falls, boat tours, and casino.
I will be traveling with family (myself, mum, sister, all adults) from the 19th August to 1st September on the East Coast of Canada.

Does the Quebec City HOHO bus operate between Oct 19th and 22nd? Does the Ecolobus operate at all now? We will be visiting Quebec City on these dates and would like to visit the usual tourist destinations. In neither of these will be available what options (walking is difficult for one of our group) are there? Many thanks!
An American friend, who doesn't speak any French, who does a lot of travel withing Quebec as part of his job, told me that he used to run into hostility from merchants and the public in general in Quebec, outside of Montreal and Quebec City, when he'd ask questions in English. He said he learned a trick to solve the problem. When he enters a store, he starts off by saying, "Habla Espanol?" then "Sprechen sie Deutch?". While the locals typically don't speak Spanish or German, they assume that the person is not American and not an English speaking Canadian.
Then, with a fake accent, he says "Do you speak English?". Usually the merchant is then relieved, and delighted to speak English. Apparently anti-English resentment is not really against the English language, but against Americans and Canadians who take it for granted that everyone should speak English.
Has this worked for any of you?
I am currently staying at Hilton Garden Inn. I have to reach to Le Jardins banquet hall in Vaughan ( lejardin.com/weddings-social... ). I found out there are two routes to reach the destination. One is through ON-427 N and the other one is through ON-407 E. Which route is better?
We will be arriving about 7.30am at the International Airport. Are taxis expensive from airport to downtown Vancouver. (Best Western 718 Drake Street) or are shuttle buses better. I know train would be cheapest but because of suitcases would have to probably walk several books with them? What is best
Looking for a hotel close to 14 wing Greenwood?
I am travelling to Gaspe airport (YGP) from Toronto (YYZ) via Air Canada. Once I reach Gaspe I intend to travel in a rental car to New Brunswick, PEI, Cape Breton. The whole trip is around 10 days long.
I checked with the rental car companies and the province of Quebec has per Km pricing and no kms are free.
Hence I need to move out of Quebec and then rent a car preferably in the province of New Brunswick (Bathurst or Moncton) for the entire trip.
Can some one please help me in this regard. How do i travel out of Gaspe via a Bus or any other means to Bathurst in New Brunswick ?
Moreover if someone knows of any rental agency in Gaspe, QC that charges just like in the province of Ontario pls do let me know ?
looking for reasonably priced hotels in the cruise port area of Vancouver BC?
I am taking a trip of about 4-5 weeks in July-August, with my wife. I will be driving from Florida to San Diego, Vancouver, Montreal and back to Florida. We will be tenting in Federal and State/Provincial campgrounds mostly, with a mix of motels and cabins, friends and family.
In 1976 we did a similar trip from Montreal to San Francisco, Mexico City, Houston and back with our three children and in 1978 we did another another one again from Montreal to Los Angeles, El Paso and back. Our visiting the Northwest has been postponed until now. I have had my fair share of traveling, but most of it was done prior to the internet and its wonderful opportunities to learn and communicate.
I would appreciate suggestions on how to publish a log of the trip while making it, what campgrounds to take, "don't miss" nearby locations and any other comments that may be applicable.
I have posted a map to my Google Drive, but don't know how to make it available here for comments and suggestions.
Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with me.
I'm planning a cross Canada trip for the summer of 2016. We're a family of 5, with children who will be between 16 and 20 next summer. The outline of the plan is to start in Vancouver, and progress leisurely eastward over a period of 1 - 2 months. These plans are preliminary, I'm open to suggestions!
The ideas I've had for transportation so far are:
- Renting an RV
- Renting a car and staying in motels
- Mixing it up between methods of transportation (planes, trains and automobiles...)
I'd like to have the leisure to stop for a few days when we come across a nice place. I already have in mind Vancouver Island, the Rockies, one or two Great Lake beaches and Niagara. It seems an RV would be the most suitable for this requirement, but I'm open to other ideas.
Does anyone have experience or advice that I could benefit from? This could include:
- Method of transportation
- Places we must visit
Thanks for any help!
