Our tour guide Jimmy was awesome! He was funny, and patient given that there was 1 person who barely showed up in time to leave, and all throughout the tour, she consistently was the last person we were waiting for. Jimmy never once showed frustration, and remained professional for the entirety of the tour. I honestly recommend using this tour company if anyone is thinking about seeing these amazing sites. The frustration we saved worrying about parking, lines, etc was worth every penny. would definitely use this tour company again. highly recommend.

The tour guide and experience by the tour company was great! It was nice to hear some of the history and architecture of Niagara Falls park of how it was transformed to what we see today. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn the history of the Niagara Park as well as interact with its amenities.

We were met by Jeff who gave us information about Niagara and the surrounding area, collected our tickets for Maid of the Mist and Caves of the Wind. We had no queues, great weather (ok, Jeff didn’t have much to do with that!) and a great experience. A great morning in good company

Cheri was awesome some many great tidbits about Niagara falls. she made it fun and interactive!

Cave of the Winds was fun and allowed for experience of the waterfall force
