Not a paradise 11/15/2010

My parents were on the NYC/Canada deluxe tour in October 2010. Price on package was okay, hotels were decent and driver was always prompt. Jacky, the guide, was a different story. You would think that the background/history of each site visited would be something standard, but this did not happen. People were simply told to rest/sleep on the bus. Also, even though we knew meals were not included in the package, you were really expected to join the meals planned by the guide. Otherwise, you were made to feel excluded and no info. about area restaurants were provided. You were left to figure it out on your own. Disappointing and wouldn't recommend. more

It brings you to "Paradise" 10/27/2010

The driver was a careful and responsible one. The tour guide by the name of Jacky.. can't say much cuz besides saying "Ok, everyone", Take a rest (on the coach)" and "toilet to your left" and "we'll reach in approximately XX minutes", he said nothing much. No info on the itinerary for that day, no background on the places we were visiting. He even chided an old couple for tipping him in Canadian dollars instead of USD cuz he had to change them back to USD. Some older folks said this was the worse tour ever and they couldn't sleep as much on the coach as Jacky had wanted them to. I would do my own free & easy tour any time. more

Best Tour Guide 8/26/2009

We went on a tour of Niagara Falls and had the best time. The tour guide King Kong was the best. He entertained us through the entire trip. It was a pleasure having him as our tour guide. I highly recommend this tour to anybody. more

Bus & bus driver 7/23/2009

Good: The tour guide, Frank, did a commendable job given the very negative circumstances.. Bad: The contracted bus company provided a mechanically unsound bus. It broke down between Philadelphia nd D.C. Our group (9 travelers) were transfered from one bus to another until our original bus was repaired over night. The bus itself was very uncomfortable, bouncy, noisy and offered no window shades. Our driver seldom knew the proper route to take to our destinations. He was constantly swearing and arguing with our tour guide. This was embarassing and very discomforting to the entire travel group.. Improvements: Paradise needs to cancel the contract with this particular bus company!. Other: I have requested a partial refund via a certified letter which has been signed for and have not heard back from Paradise, Inc. Bottom line, book your tours with another company!!. more

Good Time 5/27/2009

I just went on there 3 day Toronto and Niagara Falls tour with my family and we had a great time. The tour guide was very good and corteous. He gave us good information at all of the places we visited. He was able to speak Chinese and English so everyone could understand. Even though we saw a lot of places we had plenty time to see everything. The hotels we stayed at were nice especially in Toronto. My kids really enjoyed the Maid of the mist boat ride. Overall we had fun on the trip and the price of this tour was very good. This summer we will try another one of their tours. more

Highly UNRECOMMENDED! 12/23/2007

PARADISE VACATIONS??? Highly not recomended~! Really poor service, unreliable & it sucks~! That dissapoints me~! It was not a pleasant experience with them~! I took the East Coast tour to New York, Philadelphia, Washinton DC, Boston, Buffalo & Niagra Falls on Dec 2007. 1st day the shuttle wasn't at the location it suppose to be so me and my parents had to walk for 15 minutes to a different place in order for the shuttle to pick them up~ The tour guide was not professional enough to lead the congragation. Bad attitude and hardly ever asked people if they had different preferences. I'm really dissaponted with the service that he gave us, it's harsh n hard. Everybody in the same tour was under the pressure~and it was an unforgetful tour not because we enjoy it, but it's the TERRIBLE Tour~! more

a paradise vacation? the bus almost went on fire 5/19/2007

My family and I went to Niagara Falls with Paradise vacation in May 2007. I would not say the trip was a pleasant one. We started the trip with a smoking bus, literally. There was something wrong with the bus so we changed to another bus. Unfortunately, the second bus was also smoking and almost went on fire half way, on the freeway, to Niagara Falls. To make things worse, the driver did not even realize that there was smoke coming from the bathroom until we shouted "fire, fire". Why? because he was listening to his Ipod. He was also driving like crazy. We couldn't even sleep in the bus. Just consider this facts when planning your vacation with paradise vacation. more

East Coast Tour (8 days) 7/3/2006

This tour featured a fantastic itinerary and covered a lot in eight days. The hotels were also the best. The tour did start off very early and would get to the hotel very late but this allowed you to see a lot of sights. However this also included going to Chinatown in each area for most of the meals. If you do not eat Chinese food there are alternatives but you will have to find them yourself. The Tour guide was not very helpful for anything outside the tour's itinerary. Most of the tour was in Chinese, although there were short comments in English. The batrhroom was kept locked, so each stop usually required a long bathroom break first. The bus did stop at rest areas on the longer portions of the trip. Be prepared to walk about 4-5 miles each day when stopped. The tour guide would say to follow me and then be out of sight before the back of the bus was able to get off. The tour guide also would say one thing and then do another. The bus driver did not always take out the luggage or load it. Take plenty of cash or the tour guide will tell you to get money out of the atm. You have to pay for the tickets to the attractions ($195.00) and also the suggested tip is expected even though there is not a lot of extra service provided to earn a tip. The tour guide actually asks for the tip several times on the trip and tells you that you owe it to him. He also kept saying eight days when he was only with us for seven. This would have been a better trip if there had been some instrutions provided in English. I would have even been happy with written descriptions of the stops and a few maps to places to eat other than the Chinese places that we stopped. I did not like being told that I would have to ask for directions myself. Seems like this would be a service they would be glad to provide for the people on the bus who don't speak chinese. The trip itself was very good and wth these few extra services could have been even better. more

good trips 12/29/2005

if you're looking to go on a short vacation, but not excited about planning it. then this might be your answer. they have short trips to places like Boston and Niagara falls and many others. the bus travel, hotels, and itinerary are all taken care of for you. and the prices are not bad. For about 150 dollars we had a pretty good trip to Niagara Falls, and we stayed at a pretty good hotel. the bus ride was pretty comfortable. however, there was not alot of time to do anything, since everything was on a time schedule. we had about two hours for each thing scheduled. so if you're looking to go exploring, then this is definitely not for you. however, if you're looking for something fast, fun, and relaxing. then this might be an option more

great vacation 10/6/2005

For the longest time, my family and I have traveled on vacation along the eastern coast by the means of Chinatown Tour Bus. Paradise Vacation, a tour bus company is one that i use quite frequently. Around labor day, they offer the best deal with buy 2 get 1 free, and they travel everywhere from Canada to Tennessee. The bus that they use are clean and the itinerary they set up allows you to visit all the tourist attraction even if it mean that you have to wake up at 7am. But its worth it more
