This excellent tour was handled by Over the Falls. Nick our guide was knowlegable and funny. This tour allows you to do a lot in a short time. The Canadian side is basically sightseeing along with lunch and souvenir shopping. The Skylon Tower offers great views all around. The Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds are on the American side. They are wet and intense and a blast. There were 8 folks in our group so the bus was not crowded and allowed us to visit. You get a lot of bang for your buck-I doubt my wife and I could have done half of these things on our own in 6 hours. Ask for Nick! We highly recommend this tour.
After much deliberation I decided to book this deluxe sightseeing tour instead of one of the shorter, cheaper ones. I'm so glad I did - you only go to Niagara once! After all it is only a bit of water, as my husband said!
There were four in our party (age range 45 to 75) and, boy, did we have the most fantastic of days. Our tour guide was absolutely delightful and so very knowledge.
We were on a small coach (+/- 30 people) and so did not feel as if we were a stereotype tourist getting on and off a coach every two minutes with a camera in their hands. Although we must have been!
All aspects from the viewpoint overlooking the whirlpool, to the Maid of the Mist, to the caves, to the Souvenir Market where you go for lunch, was queue-less, clean, efficient and spectacular.
If you can afford it definitely go for this tour.
This was an excellent tour. We REALLY enjoyed the Maid of the Mist and the Cave of the Winds. We had a small group of 4 people which was nice and Ed, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable. We would have liked to have an opportunity to shop at Maid of the Mist or Cave of the Winds shops instead of the Souvenir City that he took us to, but that was the only negative. The tour included a drive around the Canada side to see the Floral Clock, power plants, etc. There was quite a bit of walking so it might not be the best tour for those with limited ability.
We had a fantastic day and could not recommend this tour and our guide Nick highly enough.Maid of the mist boat ride is hard to put into words but is truly awesome, as is cave of the winds. We were picked up at our hotel by Nick who was very friendly, approachable and professional, I'm sure our tour went longer than usual but Nick did not pressure anyone with time restraints and made a great day into a fantastic experience. Thanks again Nick for a once in a life time experience
We stayed only one day in Niagara and the tour was really good. They bring you on the places you can see and enjoy your visit to the falls. Only the film was a disappointment and a waste of time. The boat ride and the cave of the winds were really very good. After the tour we have made a walk against the flow and saw the river before it arrives to the fall and that was also very heavy and nice to see.
Excellent tour of several sites around Niagara with a very thorough and entertaining tour guide. The Maid of the Mist ride and Cave of the winds were breathtaking!
The falls are amazing. The tour was great because we covered all the highlights in one day. My fav was the Cave of the Winds.
We had a great experience and loved the hotel pick-up! The tour offered exactly what we wanted in activities, especially the Maid of the Mist boat ride and the Cave of the Winds site. Our tour guide, Brandon was friendly and courteous. Great time!
We didn't want to just visit The Falls without being sure to see as much as we could. We booked this trip as it seemed fairly comprehensive. As we booked it online the night before, the staff had not got our details, but were organised and efficient and very friendly, giving directions ( we drove). OurTour guide Ed was great, we were a smallish group, and he remembered all our names and where we were from, several times he offered to take photos of the two of us together which was lovely as we usually only get one or other of us in pictures. The maid of the mist boat ride was awesome, and we would have booked that ourselves anyway, but we also really enjoyed the Caves of Wind, especially the Hurricane Deck ( not for the faint hearted as you get soaked and blown around,) you really feel a small measure of the immense power of the falls.
We really felt we saw everything we wanted to. One couple were heading back that evening, and ed gave them very detailed information on the route and parking etc. a really good tour which I have no problem recommending
This tour was fabulous. We truly enjoyed the Maid of the Mist boat ride and Cave of the Winds climb
surrounded by the roar of the American Falls.. Awesome!! If not for this tour, we would not have experienced the American side. We would have really misses out.
Our tour guide was very informative regarding the history of Niagara Falls and had many interesting stories to tell us. He had a wonderful sense of humor and made the trip extra special. It was great to do the tour with a van of people. It was fun to enjoy this adventure with others.
Would highly recommend taking this tour. Wonderful!!
We greatly enjoyed the tour. Although we knew about the Maid of the Mist boat ride and the Cave of the Winds, the tour took us to some places we did not previously know about. The tour guide was informative and entertaining.
We can't say enough good times regarding our tour. Neither of us had ever been to Niagara Falls and wanted to be guided instead of guessing about where to go. Our tour guide Nick H. was great, his knowledge of the area and of all the points of interest was wonderful, he also had some cute jokes as well. Nick was very mindful of the limitations of some of the people in his group, such as bad knees and not being able to tackle all the steps at Cave of the Winds. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as there is quite a bit of walking but it is worth taking this trip especially if seeing the Falls for the first time and don't forget your camera.
Great tour. Excellent tour guide, funny and knowledgeable. Loved the variety of activities, especially the cave of the wind and the maid of the mist
Our tour guide Dave was great. He never rush us so that we could experience everything. The sights on the Canadian side were so beautiful. I am so glad we went to the American side so we could experience the Cave of the Winds walk. The 3 Sisters islands were fantastic and so breathtaking. What a wonderful way to start our vacation.
It was awesome. Oyur guide Greg ws fantastic. Very informative and gave us a very good time. Highly recommend this tour. The cave of the winds and the Maid of the Mist were the highlight of the tour.
