    We had a great day. We went behind the Falls which was superb-the noise, the views and the whole atmosphere were awesome. The boat to the falls was a fabulous experience too and on top deck we were drenched! It may have been better to be on the lower deck and we may have seen more because there wouldn’t have been as much spray! We also opted for lunch which was a very tasty and plentiful 3 courses and served by friendly staff. We were lucky to visit on a beautiful sunny day and sat outside, facing the falls to have our lunch. We had an excellent driver/guide in Fabio. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful and pointed out many places of interest. We stopped for several photo opportunities and our trip was enhanced by Fabio’s input. We felt there was enough time at each stop and even if you don’t do behind the falls or the boat or lunch, it is a beautiful area to take in the magnificent scenery, have a refreshment break, walk around and if it’s your bag, see a few shops.

    The tour was fantastic. Our guide, Joe was educational, fun, and polite. We were a little surprised at it being a group tour as there was no mention upon booking but lunch with a total stranger turned out to be an amusing twist. The only thing I feel could have been better was the lunch at the Skylon tower. With that view and how highly spoken of they are, we had greater expectations. We were given 3 meal options of which my husband and I chose 2, both were greatly disappointing. Im not sure if its because it's part of a tour they didn't put in as much care or if that actually is their standard. However, we understand that it is not our guides fault that the meal was subpar which is why we chose not to reflect that in our star rating. None the less we canceled our dinner reservations there for the following day.
