    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.
