“Great Tour!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

My 18 year old son (nicknamed Dr. McDreamy by Joel because he looks like a young Patrick Dempsey) and I enjoyed this tour very much! It was a good balance of history, humor and attractions. It's nice that Joel gets the tickets for the Maiden of Mist and Cave of the Winds and takes care of the details :)
I would recommend this tour for all ages!

“Great Tour!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

We ended up touring with Joel as the American portion of our Niagara Falls tour and we are so glad our paths crossed! Joel is so smart and knows everything you need to know about the area and as a bonus is funny and kept us smiling the whole time! Touring with Joel is a must if you are touring the American side of the Falls!

“Lots of fun, an excellent tour!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Not only interesting and informative, but Joel had us laughing throughout the tour as well as learning. One of the great things was that a lot of the information was driven by participants' questions. Joel told us a lot of interesting history about Nicola Tesla because someone asked. Even for a native of the area, I learned new things about the Falls, and seeing the fireworks at the end was the perfect conclusion for the evening.

Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as you will be walking most of the time.

Joel, I see your tour is ranked "#2" on the ratings list. I know as new reviewers jump in, your tour will make it to #1!

Thank you for your kind words. The Tesla question was a plant...I always have a fake person on the tour to ask "improvised" questions that make me look knowledgeable. Sincerely, thank you for taking the time to write a review, it makes a big difference for me.

“Super Walking Tour”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We had a wonderful time on our walking tour with Joel. He has a great memory and a real knack for the history of the area. He is very accommodating while on the tour...recommending pictures, stops, etc. He has an endless supply of corny jokes with some sarcasm thrown in the mix. We saw many of the top sights in Niagara Falls within a few hours. It is a walking tour but it is a leisurely pace. Great tour and we highly recommend Joel and this walking tour.

Dear Nebraska people, my wife would challenge you on the comment that I have a good memory! I think I remember only the trivial things. Still I'm glad those appealed to you. I sincerely hope you had a safe journey home. Joel

“Highly recommend - this was a great walking tour!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We had a great time on this walking tour. Something different to do on a Sunday night in the summer. Great way to experience the falls even if you've been there a bunch of times. Joel was very knowledgeable about the area and its history. Good for all ages for those who can walk around for 2 hours. Good for locals or those visiting for the first time. Can't wait to go on his other tours.
