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.
This was a good way to see the important sites of Niagara. It is very convenient as they pick you up at your hotel in a very clean, new van. We were escorted to the Skylon Tower, Journey Behind the Falls and the Hornblower boat tour. We were also treated to a driving tour of the area including the whirlpool area. Since Niagara is such a touristy area, I would recommend this tour to avoid some of the driving and lines associated with the attractions.

The tour was fantastic. There is nothing better than being guided through the city that includes this natural treasure. Our guide picked us up promptly at our hotel and enthralled us with information for the next few hours. It seemed like I asked a hundred questions, and he answered each and every one. We were escorted straight to the front of the line to the Maid of the Mist, Skylon Tower (THE VIEW!!!!) ... we felt (and were treated like) VIPS. It would have taken us a week to navigate the area to see all the wonderful things we did. The Flower Clock shouldn't be missed. Highly Recommend!
Niagara Falls are MAGNIFICENT!!! Maid of the Mist was AWESOME!!! Skylon Tower views AMAZING!!!
We were part of a group of 8 people, all fellow Aussies. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the falls, local area and history. This was a very relaxed tour with many opportunities to view the falls from several places on both the Canadian and US side.
Many parts of this tour was great. You just need to know what you really want to do before booking this tour...like, I didn't care about a lot of the extra stuff (i.e., visiting a floral clock, and a bunch of other random stuff). I hated that so much time was spent at souvenir shops (I came to see the falls, not buy stupid stuff). We had too much time at the souvenir shop, but then felt somewhat rushed when it came time to view the Falls themselves. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, and we learned a lot, but she was also kind of obnoxious. This tour was also quite long, although a good value for your $$. My recommendation for people visiting the Niagara Falls: go on the Maid of the Mist boat ride (you can book this separately), go up the Skylon Tower in Canada (you can book this separately), and see the Falls from the Canadian side! Unless you're bored, have a lot of free time, or are really interested in knowing everything about the area, skip this pre-packaged tour and just do your own adventures separately.
The tour was great, guide was excellent and he made the tour special. We had the Skylon Tower included. The only think I have to point out that viator didn't communicated with the local company to pass important message about our visa to USA.
Wasn't impressed. My original time was cancelled, went on later tour, it started late. Power outage at Skylon Tower, so didn't see that. Loved the Hornblower!!! Next time I will just do all on my own. Thought this would be more convenient but not so much.
