I'm not sure how we're supposed to rate a tunnel or why but it's a must if you're crossing the border.

The tunnel to Windsor Ontario from detroit was built in the 30's and is always being upgraded. I teresting drive both ways. No trucks or motorcycles allowed as it is only 2 lanes wide and the lanes are small!!

This tunnel is historic. You go down in the tunnel under the Detroit River and appear in the light into another country. I have taken it several times and each time is a fun experience.

Using the tunnel to travel from Windsor back to Detroit went smooth overall. The customs officer was extremely unfriendly. So much truck traffic so found it hard to read signs.

We took the tunnel both ways as we went to Canada for dinner. It's smooth and easy to travel. You must go through customs each way, but it just seems easier than taking the bridge.

Allow plenty of time and be sure you have passports in order. If you get pulled over for inspection it will take even longer. Have a great time!
