Our tour guide, Roland, was funny and full of local facts. He made the day fun. We enjoyed the Maid of the Mist cruise, Cave of the Winds, a drive over to the Candian side for a drive along the gorge to view the power plants and of course the US Falls and the Candian Falls. Our only surprise was the cost of the fast food meal we had, $68 for a burger/FF and chicken tenders/FF plus a salad and drinks. Since it was Victoria Day weekend, waits were longer and crowds were large. The tour picked us up at 10 am and we got dropped back at our B&B at 7:30 pm. Longer day than a 6 hour tour.

Great day at Niagara Falls with the boatcruise. Our guide Felix went the extra mile and really enhanced our experience

Amazing views, friendly atmosphere, great tour guide, all around tremendous to see! Thank you

Excellent!!! Helicopter is really good, new and well maintained. The ride was awesome

Wonderful day, kind of long for older people, but worth every second!
