This tour is not only for older people. Our tour guide and driver were both fantastic and very entertaining. You got to see and learn a lot about the whole area, not only the falls. The buffet dinner was quite good and totally worth the extra costs. The boat ride was also fun (a throw-away rain coat is provided). Seeing the falls at night (additionally to seeing them at daylight) illuminated by old search-lights was a nice bonus. The town of Niagara Falls itself is basically little Las Vegas of Canada with a lot of amusement arcades and silly attractions for young and old.
Be aware that there are no fireworks off-season. We did the trip on the last sunday of September.
Fantastic day. Very well organised. Great meal provided. Was expecting a very basic buffet and was very pleasantly surprised. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.
My husband, daughter and I were collected from Grand Hotel at 12.45pm. Driving through Toronto was great as Alan, our wonderful guide, was giving a lot of interesting facts about the city. We loved wine-testing stop in a beautiful little town/village, and ended up buying some excellent wine and grape juice for our daughter. The rest of the day was amazing! The views breathtaking! What I was fearing the most - crowds and confusion - didn't happen. Everything ran very smoothly, including the highlight of our journey - trip on the Maid of the Mist. I think absolutely everyone should try and get close to the falls, which will overwhelm all your senses. We loved the dinner at Sheraton, and as we went on Friday evening, fireworks at the end of the day. Of course glorious summer weather helped our enjoyment. I would very much recommend this trip!
Amazing trip, excellent tour guide plus evening dinner overlooking the Falls. Very good value for money with a visit to a winery also included, fully recommend the trip.
This was such a highlight of our holiday, Alan our tour guide made this trip so memorable. His knowledge friendly approach and humour all added to a wonderful evening out. When we arrived in the Niagara region we had a quick wine tasting stop followed by a lovely ride through Niagara On The Lake. A few of the people on the coach (me included) took advantage of the optional Helicopter flight over the falls (highly recommended) Once we had done this we drove on up to the falls and all got on the Maid Of The Mist boat. After the boat trip Alan had arranged to meet us at the front of the Sheraton on the falls hotel where we had a delicious buffet dinner overlooking the falls. Once dinner was finished we all got on the coach again up to the horseshoe falls area, this is where we spent the final part of the evening watching the light show and the fireworks. At the end of the evening we were taken back to Toronto and dropped of near to our hotels. If you get the chance to do this do not hesitate it was wonderful...Thanks again Alan
This tour was everything we wanted from it. The guide Alan and Chester the driver made the trip so enjoyable.. They were very informative and made us laugh all day.. Niagra was as expected majestic. I would advise you to do the evening trip as you get to see it by day and night. The fireworks on the Sunday night finished a perfect day. Also the buffet at the Sheraton Fallsview Restaurant had everything you would want to eat with one of the best views you could have. We returned to our hotel tired but very happy with memories that will last a lifetime. The smile on my 84year old mother said it all.
This trip was the best trip I have ever been on! We were collected from our hotel in Toronto around 1pm to go to Niagara Falls. On the way we stopped off at a winery and then on to the Falls and a trip on the Maid of the Mist boat. It was magical. Our meal which was included in the price was in the Sheraton hotel. We had lunch on the Falls View floor of the hotel so enjoyed superb views whilst eating an scrumptious buffet lunch. We then went on an optional tour of 'behind the falls' which gave you a very close view of how powerful the falls actually are. The person who made this trip was Allen the tour guide. His timekeeping, sense of humour, helpfulness and above all his knowledge of the area, both on the way up and of the Niagara area was phenomenal. Both Allen and Chester the driver were great. Thank you for an unforgettable trip.
the tour was great!our guide Allen and driver Chester were really friendly and knowledgeable. they made the trip a really good experience. the drive was very scenic, an overall great day out.
The whole day was very well run, and far exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide Alan was friendly and knowledgeable and helped to make the day a fun and enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend this trip if you're staying in Toronto, especially on a night with the fireworks. We have fantastic memories and photos from this day.
Great trip. Excellent guide (Alan) and driver (Tim) who went out oth their way to make the day enjoyable. Helicopter ride well worth the extra.
We planned our trip to Toronto specifically to see Niagara Falls. We took time to decide who we booked our trip to the Falls with and we certainly made the right choice with Viator.
The booking process was easy and we received plenty of updates and communication.
We arrived at the pick up point and was met by our tour manager Alan. He was the perfect guide and kept us captivated the whole journey. We would also like to mention Tim the driver who made up some lost time due to a 'fender bender' on the highway out of Toronto!
We only decided to do the helicopter ride on the way and this was a superb way to see our first sight of the Falls.
The Falls are truly spectacular , the Maid of the Mist is obviously the highlight and was wonderful but we also got up real close and personal on our walk with Alan even though it was pouring with rain he still did this part of the tour!
The meal at the Sheraton was also excellent, I was not expecting this to be as good as it was as I had read some bad reviews, but staff were attentive and choice of food was very good. The desserts were to die for!!
We chose to go on a Friday night for the fireworks and this just topped it off.
It truly was a fabulous trip of a lifetime.
Thanks to Viator, Alan and Tim and of course the Falls!!
Great tour guide, really well organised and very enjoyable day. Worth the money
An amazing day from start to finish.
Guide was very informative and helpful throughout.
Plenty of time for pics once we arrived although the visit to the winery was a little rushed.
We opted to take the helicopter ride over the falls which was amazing, but those who decided not to were taken to see the whirpools whilst they waited so no wasted time for anyone.
The meal included was good, lots of choice and a great view from the restaurant.
Seeing the lights come on and the added bonus of a firework display at 10pm has to be seen to be appreciated. No pictures can do enough justice to how wonderful it was.
If you are in the area this trip is an absoloute must!
Great Tour, well worth the cost. Both the tour guild and bus driver were great. We took the optional helicopter flight and were very pleased to have done so, with some excellent views of Niagara Falls. The Maid of the Mist was also very good and would highly recommend it. The option of seeing falls both by daylight and under lights was very rewarding. The dinner at the Sheraton was excellent.
what an awesome sight got so many great pictures,guide and company very good and most helpful
I got two tickets for my parents who were visiting from India. They had a fantastic time and couldn't say enough about how great the guide was. They also said they were really glad they decided on the evening trip because of the lights and the fireworks (it was on a friday).
Had a fantastic guide who made it a brillaint day and evening. Would recommend to all
trip was very good, all staff very informative and helpfull , great boat trip round the falls , meal was a buffet great choices , overlooking Niagara Falls with high wire walker doing his stunt from the tower opposite . A must do trip !!!!!!
Excellent day, with knowledgeable and interesting guide. The Falls at night, with the firework display, were spectacular.
Lange en mooie dag met zeer ervaren gids en prima chauffeur. Mooie rit , super diner , wijnproeverij oke maar alles bij elkaar te weinig tijd op de middag en veel te veel na het diner bij het wachten op het super vuurwerk. Toen konden we echter niets meer doen bij de watervallen zoalskabelbaan bijv. !! Maar alles bij elkaar een top dag.
A full day out - impressed with the tour guide - friendly and helpful - good value for money - enjoyed the Maid of the Mist trip - brilliant - and the night light show was great - meal at the Sheraton was most enjoyable and quite scrummy - all in all - a 'Grand Day Out'
