REVIEW – NOVEMBER 15-17, 2021, FALLSVIEW CASINO – Linda Elliot and Judy Spring went on this bus tour and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were picked up at Lowes in Oshawa at 1:15 pm. The bus had a washroom but there was one stop both coming and going. We were upgraded to a two-bedroom suite, without charge. The winery tour and tasting were very enjoyable. The pool and spa were closed, but the Double Tree Hotel, which is a short walk away, has a very good spa and allows people with spa appointments to use their pool (by appointment). Return from Niagara Falls was at noon.
