Let’s start with the guide and driver John. He was awesome, he entertained us all the way telling us stories about Toronto and Niagara. He helped getting the tickets to skip the line and he was always kind. The tour included multiples stops and plenty of time to go around. I went on Feb, so it was a bit off season, but it was great since there aren’t many people and you can enjoy it all.

Great tour! The tour guide was really helpful and organised, the falls LOOKING INCREDIBLE! Everything went so smooth and perfect, we came back on time! Highly recommended

Everything was good! The only suggestion is to mention in the itinerary that during the ride to Niagara Falls there is a 15-min stop, just as FYI.

Winston was very nice as a guide. He told us a lot about the area and responded to all of our wishes.

Good guide! Excellent service... they are clean... thank you! Recommended!
