My mom and I had the best time on our half-day tour! We loved every minute of our tour, starting with the journey behind the falls and ending with the cruise boat! Abhi, our tour guide, was wonderful and a joy to be with. She answered all our questions and helped us learn a lot about the history of Niagara! I 100% recommend See Sight tours AND Abhi as your tour guide!
