Not my favorite thing to do a little scary but it still beats the Canada bridge and it is the quickest way to get to windsor

We have been going through the tunnel since we were kids. There were times there was water leaking down the walls which was scary when I was a kid but it's no big deal now and it's better than the bridge. It's not a beautiful trip but it's pretty cool to think of how it was made and how old... More

As a tunnel it is just a usual one without anything impressive. I have used it for a long time now, and it is to be used on weekdays as weekends tend to make it crowded. I prefer the bridge due to its open air and nice scenery.

The tunnel never changes. I find it's the best way to cross the border by far, not a fan of the bridge. Not to mention it's cheaper!!

It's a neat alternative to the Ambassador Bridge. It isn't anything overly thrilling but it's something different. If you have already gone over, why not go under?

This is an interesting trip to the US or back to Canada. It can take a little longer as you do have to do Customs. It is a little dingy and not that interesting.

Speed limit 30mph. Easy ride across - keep your windows up and AC on recycle air. Line at the gate varies in speed. Unfortunately we got the slowest one. Take off your glasses when approaching, roll down your windows and have your ID's ready. Don't forget to smile and be courteous to the border officer.

This is an international tunnel. It draws tourists from across America and Canada. It is dirty, crowded and the air is so badly polluted that I refuse to enter it.

I use this tunnel maybe 3 to 4 times a year. It moves quickly when going to Canada. Moves a bit slower when entering the USA. I prefer it to the bridge.
