We wanted a convenient and smart way to get to Niagara Falls as part of our short visit to Toronto, and this delivered! We were given maximum flexibility as our tour guide optimized the amount of time we had at Niagara Falls and Niagara on the lake, while showing us the other sights quickly. I liked that the tour guide was informative but not too chatty (and was also conversant in German, too!). Highly recommend for a smaller group tour.

It was amazing! We had Zachary, great tour operator. Helped us immensely! We had 4 of our relatives from France with us. Very thoughtful and took his time explaining the itinerary with us. Loved the boat ride and behind the falls!

It was very exhilarating and fun, be sure to bring an extra pair of clothes or use swim gear as the water will always find you no matter what!

our guide was great! skipped the lines/ticket purchasing and got to see alot in a half day!

This was an exhilarating experience. You get wet, it's fast and furious and fun!
