This was a great tour. Be sure to bring your passport with you for the tour because you will see BOTH sides of the Falls Canadian and American side, the title of the tour and description do not make this clear. My husband and I went in the off-season March 2015 so we did the Journey Behind the Falls instead of the Maid of the Mist boat ride. It was still a great time to go because it was snowing and there was snow on the ground and surrounding the falls so it gave it a unique look. Just be sure to bundle up, if you go at this time, because it was very cold and windy! One issue we encountered was we selected the earlier tour when booking through Viator, 9:30am, but were told by the actual tour company that the only available time was 11:30am. Fortunately I read the directions carefully and contacted the tour company directly to confirm, this is when I was told the correct tour time. Also, the tour began at approx. 11:30am and ended around 6pm, so it was much longer than the 4 hours that Viator shows on their site. I was glad it lasted longer because we were able to take our time and see all the sites, but it would have been nice to know ahead of time because we ended up missing our dinner reservation in Toronto because we expected to arrive a few hours earlier. On the tour you will also stop at a souvenir shop for lunch and to shop for Canadian and Niagara Falls souvenirs as well as blown glass.

All in all, I definitely recommend this tour. Just be sure to verify everything with the actual tour company via phone or email before you go! this is also the 2nd time I typed this review, I hit submit and for some reason my review was deleted, so that was rather frustrating.

This was a wonderful trip. Picked my wife and I up at the hotel on time. Our guide was great and very informative. Maid of the Mist was worth the trip alone. But everything about the tour was great. Would do again for sure.
