Try it out

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.

The lines could be long on weekends, rush-hours and holidays. The custom control offices need training on customer service :)

It's always fun going through the tunnel from Windsor to Detroit, just something different to do and not as busy as the bridge.

Easy to find just follow the signs. The tunnel is kind of scary but is so exhilarating when you come out the other side and realize you're in another country!
