Excellent tour, the falls were just out of this world! If you own a good weather jacket, bring it for the boat trip as their ponchos won't do you much good next to the mighty falls! We also really enjoyed Niagara-on-the-lake and the visit to the Pillitteri winery. It was suitably timed if it wasn't delayed by the helicopter ride booked as an extra by few people. The freedom day trip gave us the opportunity to have a picnic in the parc overlooking the falls, rather than being stuck in a restaurant, which was ideal. Guide seemed knowledgeable although it felt like she was confusing herself at times.
We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Our tour guide and driver were very knowledgeable and quite entertaining. Our time at the falls was great even though it was very crowded because our bus dropped us off right in front of the falls and since we were provided our tickets for boat ride, we did not have to wait in long lines to buy tickets for boat, which is awesome ride. Wish we would have had more time in Niagara by the Lake but it also started raining so turned out ok. Could have done without the winery stop since it was more about buying wine than touring the winery. Nice, comfortable ride to and from Toronto.....
The whole experience was very good with the added choice of seeing the falls from a helicopter (charged at source ) this gave the trip a bigger impact .
The boat trip was fantastic even getting wet was fun and getting that close gave it a very personal feeling .
It is a must do trip and one off the must do list 10 out of 10
All ran like clockwork! From the moment we were picked up on time from the hotel to the end of the trip.
Great and chatty guide Emile couldn't have been more helpful and informative - a genuinely nice guy. The boat trip was a lot of fun. The Falls are awe-inspiring, the town of Niagara itself is horrible and tacky, but the trips to charming Niagara on the Lake and the wine farm were very worthwhile. A good day out!
My husband and I enjoyed this tour! Our guide was knowledgeable, the driver was great and all the stops were the right amount of time. I would definitely recommend to anyone!
Excellent tour. Very knowledgable tour guide and both driver and guide friendly. Everything well organised, only slight downside was generally only got half an hour at each location.
Great day - would have liked a bit longer at Niagara on the Lake but the wine tasting was brilliant! Maid of the Mist was a brilliant trip but its a bit of a free for all so that took a long time to get everyone through, on the boat and back to the bus - left not much time for the gift shop! Other than that a great tour!!
What a fantastic day, our MC for the day, Emile, played tour guide, general entertainer, comedian, singer and 'Elvis' . He also went the extra mile to ensure me and my family had the experience we wanted i.e. a picnic overlooking the magnificent falls. We stopped off at a vineyard for tasting, and a lesson in 'how to' on the way and on the way back we visited the past at Niagara-on-the-lake. Not even mentioned the falls as they speak for themselves. Well done all concerned, 5*++.
Fabulous tour. You even got a little backpack from Grayline with some goodies in it for your day ahead. Everything very well organised and plenty of time to see everything. I would recommend not doing the lunch as it gives you more time to look around. Niagara on the Lake was a ally nice touch to finish the day.
Right from the start we totally enjoyed this well thought out day trip. From the wineries on the way up, the Falls themselves, we added a helicopter ride, plus the little village of Niagara on-the-Lake visit, this has it all. Our guide Eddie and bus driver Don were superb! An excellent tour!
