We had a very good guide. She was very friendly and informative. The coach was clean and tidy. Touring around Niagra falls and seeing where it all started was very good, also seeing the whirlpool was interesting. Went up the viewing tower and the views were spectacular and so beautiful. World recommend this trip it was worth every penny.

Very efficient tour took us to all the sites. It was longer than we expected but they did give us time to eat lunch and shop. Excellent driver and tour guide names Neva the Diva. She went out of her way to accommodate my handicap husband. We were able to enjoy all the sites thanks to her pulling the van close to site. Wish they had provided water on the bus. Very hot.

Paul was our tour guide and very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Water was up so our morning Maid of the Mist got traded for the Hornblower Canadian side. The American side walk around the Three Sisters Island was a lot of fun. Definitely worth while.
