Our tour guide Jim was brilliant. The tour lasted over three hours, included maid of the mist, the caves of the wind and a fully narrated tour. Great value for money. Really enjoyed it.

We just walked into the store and met the people talking about the tour. It was about $20 cheaper than other tours and so we decided to go with it. Carlos did a great job and we had a nice small group.

The trip was well worth the $65.00 and our tour guide, Carlos, was awesome! We had four hours worth of history and tour of the all aspects of the Niagara Falls including a boat ride into the falls. Great day!

We did the last tour of the day, the illumination tour.

The good, our tour guide "Cliff" was informative, friendly, professional and very patient. We got to go to the must do main attractions, Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds, Gorge Park, Goat Island and the overlook to see the illuminated falls at night.

The bad, some of the other people on the tour (foreigners) who were extremely inconsiderate. A group who signed up late then took their time making it onto the bus so we got a late start, the same bunch who we had to wait for at every stop to come back to the bus and held us up some more, 2 other foreigners who totally didn't come back at one of the stops and Cliff went to try and find, which he didn't so he left them behind, thankfully, and then the same late bunch who wouldn't stop talking during the tour even when Cliff asked them to about 8 times. He was so patient. Total tour took about 4 1/2 hours, longer than the 3 - 3 1/2 we were told it would take.

We paid $65/person. Plus it is strongly suggested to give the guide a 15% tip. You can do these things cheaper by going to the State Park visitor center and buying their package, but you're on your own getting around and don't get all the area history and facts about the Falls. On the other hand, you don't have to put up with annoying, inconsiderate tourists.
