Travelling from Detroit to Windsor Ontario at 4:00 am was not bad. It was coming back through the tunnel that was long. It was a different experience and no complaints about our border patrol at all, it was the impatient and unprepared drivers who were bothersome.

We've used the tunnel numerous times on our travels, but its still cool to know you're traveling in the river! It is less than a mile in length, riverwise. It was built in 1930. Rate is 5.00. Be sure to take your enhanced drivers license, or passport. Don't joke in any way with the border agents, especially the USA agents.

Cool and very interesting to travel this route, something I have never done before. Went to a concert and decided this would be the quickest way to go. No problems experienced with toll etc.

The tunnel provided easy access from Downtown Detroit to Downtown Windsor. There are plenty of dining options on the Canadian Side, and the casino is just a few blocks once you exit the tunnel. As others have stated, the tunnel is typically faster than taking the Ambassador Bridge, as the tunnel does not accommodate large commercial vehicles and semi's. The... More

Headed to Windsor for dinner and took the Tunnel. It was convenient to downtown, Caesars and Erie Street dining. Was able to pay toll by cash or credit card. Interesting to note that toll can be paid by phone or with a transponder account. Remember to take your approved travel docs.

May have been time of day but was much faster and closer to downtown than the bridge. Would use the tunnel again!

Just knowing you are under water makes this pretty cool to drive through. It is well lit so I didn't have any issues with my claustrophobia.

Easy way to cross the boarder. Have your documents ready for inspection when you get above ground. Be polite and you should sail right through.
