This trip will make your day. I’’m not just awarding five stars to support the business, but literally to simply express my profound satisfaction. If you’re wondering, is it the right choice? Wonder no more and do not hesitate. Just book the trip. Amazing ride, on time from start to finish, and great story telling from both the tour guide and the driver. It was pleasant, safe, comfortable, and entertaining, without any exaggeration. Highly recommending this trip.

Very good experience, tour guide was extremely knowledgeable with a fabulous sense of humour. Our only criticism is that many places of reference were identified on route but due to the windows being quite dirty on the outside, and condensation on the inside (which we could wipe away), we couldn't see what was being referenced. Overall a good experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Great tour, great guide in Allay who was full of information and fun. Meal in the Sheraton was excellent tho could take a long time to re-fill trays. Enjoyed wandering around Niagara on the Lake and learning about the region. The main event, The Falls, were magnificent. Would recommend this tour company.

We enjoyed the interesting facts about Niagara that we learned on the tour from our guide. The amount of people attending the tour was a small group, which I enjoyed.

The whole family enjoyed the experience. The kids said it was their favorite part of our vacation.
