We had a great time! Our guide was Pat R and he was great! It's very informative and the scenery was beautiful. It's just the right combination of structure and freedom. We would highly recommend this tour.

I had an off-peak hour tour with Andy, it was just my wife and I and it was amazing. For just 2 people, I expected them to cancel but they didn't let us down. Andy was super friendly, funny and showed us a really good time. We drove 10 hours to get to Niagara, so it was really nice to have someone guide us and show us all the best stuff without any of the stress. If you're going to do it, it's worth doing it right. Andy knew all the shortcuts, secrets and fun facts. It really enhanced our trip. We would have missed out on alot if we'd just walked around ourselves.

Be prepared to get wet! Wear shorts. The wait was a bit long, but the tour guide was terrific, and he saved our place in line to allow bathroom and water breaks, which we greatly appreciated. Do not miss this tour, as you cannot truly experience the magnificence of the falls if you do not get 'up close.' If you take this tour, then you will see the majority of the things on the American Side of the falls.

Instead of just being a quick boat ride tour, our tour was so much more. Our guide, John was awesome. He was very knowledgeable of everything surrounding the history of Niagra Falls. Our 4 hour tour actually took about 5 hours. Totally worth it!

Our guide even made waiting in line interesting. The ride on the Maid of the Mist was awesome but the Cave of the Winds was really fantastic. You experience the true meaning of power standing so near the falls.

We had a great time. It was so nice to not have to worry about driving/parking to everything or even walking to everything, for that matter!. It was nice to learn some history along the way. Bob was a great tour guide, a very nice guy. Very convenient with pick up and drop off at the hotel. Bob was very conscientious about time, one group had reservations somewhere else and had to get off before the rest of us and that was no problem.

Brilliant tour, guide very knowledgeable and jolly. Pictures do not do the falls justice, have to be seen to be believed. Maid of the mist was great and very wet. Would definitely recommend this tour. Thank

Absolutely the best tour we took at the Falls. It included more activity and special stops where other tour only drives you by. The tour guide was especially great with making sure everyone had a good time by answering questions and really giving indept information about both sides of the Falls and the Falls as well. Make sure and book this one...this tour is the one stop shop.

It is a great tour. I would call it the best way to see Niagara Falls. The boat takes you so close to the fall, you almost become a part of it, but in a safe way :
The guide's narrative was right on the spot. We were not overwhelmed with the information, but in the same time have learned a lot of interesting facts about the Falls and surrounding area.

Very good trip. Dan provided us with a lot of information and was very kind. I feel we experienced all of the major attractions of the falls and would recommend this trip.

This was one of my BEST vacations ever! Our tour guide was very informative, helpful and inventive in getting us to our tour sites on time! Imagine Fourth of July, weekend, perfect weather.....Crowded! Bob, our tour guide, got us to The Cave of the Winds, ushered us through every step and held all our shoes for us until we came back up! The Cave experience was so exhilarating ! Bob got us across town, somehow, through all that traffic, in time for our Maid of the Mist adventure. Another great experience thanks to Bob! The phone attendants answered all our questions and even rerouted the tour bus to pick us up at a more accessible location. I highly recommend using Viator! From the moment we booked our tour until the time we stepped off the bus that night , everything was perfect! Thank you Viator!

I would have to say that the tour guide made the trip. Even when we went away fom the falls Caleb managed to mkeep mall involved and shared some intersesting facts about the area. He also managed to keep all mon schedule even with a few guests having limited time keeping abilities. If you get Caleb on your tour you cant lose.

This tour was amazing! Ronnie was an excellent tour guide with great personality. When I saw the price of about $40 to do the attractions by yourself, I was at first scratching my head when thinking the Over the Falls Tour price was $90 (online pricing). But then the tour happened, and the $90 was well worth it. Even the $100 regular price would have been worth the personalized experience. We got right on every attraction with little to no wait time and were taken to each one via bus. We even had plenty of time for snacks and gift shops. Great job.
