Family Fun Vacation

Reviewed By Amy - Monticello, MN | Traveled to Niagara Falls ~ Ontario ~ Canada
We worked with Lori to book a family vacation to Niagara Falls (the Canadian side). She quickly responded to my initial request and asked several follow up questions to make sure she could book a great vacation for us! After showing us several options for places to stay, she also helped us get attractions lined up.

Our trip was wonderful and Lori provided us with lots of ideas of places to visit. She was also great about make sure we had the proper documents for travel with our children over the border.
