based on 2,617 reviews

The van was nice and it was just me, my husband and one other person. I felt like he drove around and showed us the major sites. We saw the Toronto signs and the underground city. He took us to St Lawrence marketplace and explained where things were and left us there to have lunch. It included a trip to the CN tower and a cruise of the islands in the harbor. The host was knowledge and we never felt rushed. It was a nice way to see a lot of the city in a short time.

Excellent trip would definitely recommend. Driver was on time and very helpful. Have been to the falls in winter and summer both times awesome

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

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

A good relaxing day to see the city would recommend to all
