“You have to go once in your lifetime”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We were picked up from our hotel in a small minibus which stopped at Niagara on the Lake and the Pillitteri Estates Winery. The winery was a little pricey but we bought a bottle of wine for friends were meeting later on our trip. The stop over at Niagara on the Lake was nice but a little over hyped, the shops were all a little naff if I'm honest. We got to the falls and there was a lingering mist which distorted some of the view. The Maid of the Mist was not running but we decided to go behind the falls which was well worth the money and I would not hesitate on recommending this. We also got to go up the tower as part of our package with the tour and whilst we could not see much due to the mist we managed to get a couple of decent photos of us both. It was a once in a lifetime trip and we were not disappointed,

Reviewed 17 May 2014

Very pleasant day, visited a winery and small village on the way. Pleasant scenery and small coach made even nicer drive.

“VISIT THE FALLS”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We were first pick up on tour so had to do 5/6more stops around city hotels which took an hour.
Wet all the way to falls and windy when we got there.Still got some photos and went up the tower on Canadian side.
Not many tourists due to weather.Falls still had lots of ice that had not yet melted.
Glad we made trip but weather not in our favour.
Driver Alex dropped us off first on return trip so we were happy with that

“Magnificent”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Niagara itself was amazing. I couldn't believe I was actually there, seeing it, in real time. We went up the tower and am so glad we did. The view from there was amazing!! The Sea of the mist wasn't running (some dispute over the franchise) and we didn't do the walk behind the fountain. Our guide told us that all the viewing windows were frozen and we wouldn't be able to see the view. The tour then took us to a small shopping town and to a wine-making facility which was an interesting add on but unnecessary for me.

“A must if you visit this part of Canada”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Excellent tour guide made the day most memorable (Gene P - Niagara Airtours) filling our day with interesting fact/stories and humour. As we were slightly out of season, he even took us wine tasting to make up for the lack of facilities yet to open up.
The falls and town of Niagara on the Lake were probably the highlight of the trip to Canada.
