We had a blast, especially on the boat! Not knowing if we'd ever get back to Niagara Falls, we wanted to make sure we really experienced it. Tom, the tour guide, was very nice and gave clear instructions.

The only reason we did not give it an "excellent" review was because of the unexpected length and description of the tour. The description included the Skylon Tower and the Maid of the Mist boat ride, and a "tour" of the Canadian side. And it said the entire tour would be 5 hrs. That, presumably, included the early pick up and the time to drop everyone off. However, it took 8 hrs (9:00 am until 4:45 pm) and by the end everyone was exhausted. We did stop for lunch, but that wasn't mentioned in the description. We had to purchase it on our own, and it was expensive (about $20 USD for a burger meal). Also unexpected was that it included the "Cave of the Winds", which was a nice surprise, but again, it contributed to a loooong day. There was a bit of on and off of the bus, and by the end, some people were too tired. If we had made other plans for the rest of the day after the "5 hour" tour, we would not have been able to fulfill those. Fortunately, we had no other plans, except to eat dinner!

Our advice is to call and ask detailed questions before booking any of the tours. Just be clear about the timing and what's included. You'll have a fabulous time. It was a great value for the price!

Fantastic tour of both sides of the falls, and the boat ride was brilliant. Our guide Nick was very friendy and knowledgeable, and he really made the day. Team Nick!!!!!!! It's really well organised with loads of stuff to do, and tickets for all attractions are included in the price. Great value for money and I would definitely recommend it if you're visiting the area

Dayna was amazing! This being the first Canadian side tour in two years she was so excited to have us! Pickup was on time and she was a literal ball of energy and positivity. We saw so much and learned so much as well. She kept us engaged, laughing, and learning the entire time. Who do you love? Dayna!

When I first made reservations for this tour I thought it was a little overpriced . After spending most of the day touring every part of these spectacular falls I realize I was wrong. The tour was well priced, informative, enjoyable, and very convenient. We had Nick was our guide . He knew so mu. ch about the falls and was very friendly. It was cold and windy but a great experience. The only thing we felt could have been better was where we went for lunch. We would have liked more variety and it was overpriced for hamburgers.

We visited Niagara Falls in June and it was nice and warm so we enjoyed the weather and the falls. The tour on the Maid of three Mister was awesome and I would have done the zip line but the lineup was too long. We spent the whole day touring the area and then drove to Niagara on the Lake where we spent the next two days doing wine tours and walking the down town area.

My wife and I had an excellent time; amazing views of the Falls, local tour was also a winner, the stop at the bakery was at the right time for a delicious treat. The only recommendation would be for the tour guide Roland to stand in the middle of the group to give instructions so he can have everyones attention and the instructions can be listen to more clearly. But overall an excellent Tour and well done Roland.

We booked a tour for my family with 2 children and we were very happy with the booking process, pick up schedule by the hotel and the overall trip. We had Nick for a guide and he was very entertaining and fun to be with. We learn a lot of things about Niagara Falls and we saw beautiful sights. The trip save a lot of time in opposite of doing yourself and I love the fact the bus had USB port to charge my phone.
Highly recommended trip!

Nancy, our tour guide was AWESSOME. She was calm, courteous. She shared stories of interest and answered any questions posed. She radiated positive energy whether waiting for customs /border crossing or in line for an attraction.
Nancy was professional and engaging personally and she made this day incredible for my Lady and me. Thank you Nancy, stay Beautiful and be safe.

Well worth the time and money. Even though it’s only about 20 minutes you get up close and personal with the huge Niagara Falls at the horseshoe End. Great way to get photographs of the American Niagara Falls and the bridal Falls. Yes she will get a little damp but they provide waterproof ponchos

The day was simply awesome! Amazing the number of things we learned and the sites we saw and the whole experience was wonderful. Nick was the best!!! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, friendly, funny, clear and patient with the whole group. We were surprised by how much they were able to pack into the one day. We got to see the falls from so many different perspectives. Of all the things and places we have seen, we have never seen such a natural wonder from so many different views. We finished the day with a night time viewing from the skylon tower, with all the lights on the falls. Thanks Nick, for the bonus tickets! We cannot recommend this tour and Nick enough. Simply loved it and loved him!
