Fantastic trip! I booked small group early bird tour to Niagara Falls from Toronto. Guide Heather was punctual to pick me up, she was friendly, had lots of knowledge and was driving safely! Everything was on time and we had wonderful weather. The group was very small and there was zero hassle. I will never forget this day, and will definitley book more tours with GetYourGuide!

Cheryl was a great guide who has a wealth of knowledge about the area! The power station was very cool, and makes one want to go back during the day to learn more. Dinner was delicious, and changing the lights on the falls was awesome!

Heather Elo is one of the tour guide that I’ve ever met that is not over acting, she knows the proper etiquette and gesture of her clients. Professional and knows every structure within niagara. Kudos to her for being a tour guide.

Amazing tour guide ! If you’re thinking of going to Skylon avoid buying it separately. This tour includes it to. I loved the whole experience and being able to see the falls from different locations.

The Both Drivers and the Brian the Guide was very kind and knowledgeable
