If you easily get carsick like I do, make sure to notify the driver/tour guide in advance. They are very accommodating. The minibus is the type where the back seats are right on top of the wheels, so it's not very comfortable. If you don't care about watching the video (they play a video about Niagara Falls on the way there), you can let them know you can sit in the very front.

Very good way to get a glimpse of the falls in a day while still having the evening to enjoy yourself in Toronto. That said, I wouldn't mind a little more time being able to hang around the amusement area of the falls and Niagara on the Lake. Always seemed like there wasn't enough time to take everything in. The guide was nice and pretty laid back, though I did have a little trouble understanding him through his accent.

Driver was knowledgeable and friendly. I would have preferred more time in Niagara-by-the-Lake and less in Niagara. This time of year there are no lines for boat ride. The small town wasn’t crowded - the lunch spot, Tide & Vine, had great chowder and lobster roll. I would not choose the wine tasting either. It was a tasting in their retail space.
