Niagara Falls was spectacular! We my 10 year old daughter and I rode the iconic Maid of the Mist, got thoroughly soaked on the Hurricane Deck of the Cave of the Winds, shuddered to hear about the Daredevils that dared the Falls, learned about the power plants, saw the Aero Car and Whirlpool Basin, AND soared to the heights of Skylon Tower! Because of this tour we didn't need a rental car, and still saw all the sights. The US side of the Falls is a wonderfully designed park, most enjoyable for Nature Lovers like us! We also have fun talking and making friends with our fellow tourists.
This was certainly the best way to see the Niagara Falls.
Our 1st stop was to head to the centre and take a lift down to see behind the falls, walking through tunnels to see behind the falls, the noise from the water and then to go to an observation deck and see the horseshoe falls thunder down, you do get a little wet. Then to proceed to the boat and take this right up to the falls, you get soaked! Be prepared, fantastic. The to the helicopter ride, amazing, you see clearly the American and fly over the Canadian falls, great fun. Then finally lunch in the Skylon Tower at Niagara Falls which revolves slowly getting great views of the town. Highly recommended, you couldn't have asked for more. Our guide was very good picking us up from our collection point, taking us to each location.
We had a great time on this tour. It offered a lot of what we wanted to see in the area and we did not have to do any 0of the driving. Our tour guide, Andy, was great. He was funny and very informative. The Maid of the Mist was incredible as was Cave of the Winds. We enjoyed the Whirlpool area as well. The trip to Canada was great as well. The view from Skylon Tower is incredible and allows you to see all of the falls at once. We enjoyed our time on the tour and would not hesitate to do it again.
Bob, our tour guide for the day was fantastic. A friendly, knowledgeable guy who made very sure that he did everything he could to make this trip wonderfully memorable - thank you Bob. The Maid of the Mist boat ride was amazing - you have to do it yourself because watching from the sidelines just isn't the same. The ride up to the viewing platform of the Skylon Tower was also really good and finishing off beside the actual falls was the icing on the cake! Great day and such good value - thank you.
Guy was a wonderful tour guide. Showed up on time, was charming and affable, told us great stories. The tour was fantastic! I loved the under the falls the best. The boat ride was great so nice not to have to wait on all of those lines! My first helicopter ride was awesome. They had a narration, which we couldn't hear because we had no headphones. And finally, a great lunch at the Skylon tower. Good food, great service and a not to be missed view. Wow, what a great day!
Our tour guide's name was Dan and his information and personality were excellent. Every part of the tour moved along smoothly. The boat ride was wonderful and the Skylon view was spectacular. My husband and I even booked dinner up in the tower for the next evening. We would certainly recommend this tour!

AWESOME EXPERIENCE - this close up encounter was much better than expected....this company went above and beyond to make this tour happen for us...we had booked the trip with departure from Toronto with pick up at 7am from our hotel and the only reason we had a 2 day stop in Toronto on our way back to Denmark was that we wanted to see Niagara Falls...but our flight from Peru South America was cancelled and we arrived 20 hours later than planned to Toronto and couldn't make it on time...the company made arrangement so we could reschedule to the tour with departure from Niagara Falls instead at 3am - if we could find the way by car or busses our selves....some phone calls VERY helpful and VERY patient man I spoke to and a lot of stressful hours later ....we found our guide ....BIG SMILE.
Very friendly guide with great knowledge about facts regarding Niagara Falls - joined a small group of 4 people - perfect !!! - The power of the waterfalls is mind-blowing and you get really close to the falls on the Horn Blower boatLoved the view from the Skylon Tower and kind of thrilling to be behind the falls.interesting car drive around the area to see the Whirl Pool and the dam etc.
We even got the money back we had prepaid for the transport.
Thanks a lot for the SUPER SERVICE - we really appreciated all your efforts to make our wish come true.
highly recommended for all.
Fantastic tour guide, Todd was extremely knowledgeable on the history. architectural facts and fun knowledge as well, Fascinating seeing the falls from Maid of The Mist and walking under the falls.
Todd gave fun and helpful facts for not getting soaked from the water. worked like a charm.
3 Sisters island was great and Goat Island.
Skylon Tower had a 360 degree view of Ontario, very breathtaking and clear.
One issue. elevator got stuck on way down fro 20 minutes and this was never conveyed to the tour guide.
The elevator wa hot with only a small fan blowing, the operator seemed extremely inexperienced to handle the situation and seemed to be falling asleep!

The main attractions- Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist, and Skylon were great, and our guide Randy made it easy for us to get in and out, and educated us on how to be more of a visitor-- not a tourist! He kept it interesting and fun, and was very knowledgable about the area and its history. We visited a few spots that locals enjoy, like the Three Sisters' Islands. FYI Lunch is on your own at a souvenir mall. Being around the Falls all day, and taking in the sights and sounds made this tour amazing. Loved it. By the end of this tour we were exhausted, and felt it was well worth it.
We had the best adventure! Our tour guide Andy was fun and full of historic facts. We walked into Cave of the Winds under the powerful falls. We boarded Maid of the Mist and boated to the base if the falls. On to Canada where we visited the power plant, whirlpool, and clock flower. Ended the tour with the perfect views atop the Skylon. Excellent day of adventure!
Very enjoyable. Picked up at hotel so didn't have to worry about parking about in Niagara. All tickets were in hand so that saved us considerable time in line. The boat, the under the falls, the skylon, all were excellent parts of a Niagara experience. Definitely worth the small extra cost over the ticket costs.
This was an outstanding trip! I have been to Niagara Falls before with the family but never on a sightseeing tour. This tour allowed us to see the cave of the winds, maid of the mist, skylon tower, and many other stops along the tour. Our tour guide Jim Egan was very knowledgeable about the history of Niagara Falls the provided endless stories about the area and all the daredevils that challenged the falls. Loved Jims enthusiasm and humor. His stories of the area made the tour so much more enjoyable. Our kids enjoyed him. Jim was kind and thoughtful to everyones needs. We would recommend this tour highly and to have them ask for Jim Egan!
Fabulous - a dream come true. We were picked up at our hotel promptly and met our fellow travellers and guide. View from Skylon Tower was great and we fast-tracked the queue. received a return ticket for later in the day.
Journey behind the falls was again fast tracked. So much water and the noise of it coming down!! Tunnels were a bit worn in places but viewing platform gave fantastic views of us in our yellow ponchos with the falls behind us. Didn't get as wet as expected.
The cruise was amazing - and awesome!!! Red ponchos this time and fast track entry. Our guide suggested the best place to stand on the boat - right hand side at front - and although the boat was crowded we got a great view of all the falls - got in real close and got VERY WET!!! It was an amazing day - getting wet was welcome as the air temp was 34 deg C!!
After these trips our guide drove us around the outskirts of Niagara to see interesting places and her commentary was very good. It was nice only having 6 in our group - a very personal experience. We saw the white water rapid walk, but ticket did not include this - I thought the description when I booked did. On arriving back in Niagara town, we were driven around dropping off fellow travellers wherever they wanted. This gave us an overview and some places to go back to later.
All in all a fascinating day and I would recommend this trip to anyone who has limited time in Niagara as it cover so much and is very good value for money.
Do not miss this tour! This is a great way to see the Niagara Area without worrying about finding parking, walking through the crowds and standing in lines. This tour is a small group, ours was 6 adults, and you are transported by van to right in front of your attraction....no searching for parking it can be a problem or walking for long distances to get to the attraction. Viator always has the best guides. Our guide, Dustin, was no exception! This young man was quite a pleasure to spend the morning with. Not only is he clean cut, polite, and patient with the people in our group who could never get back on time, it's also very knowledgeable about the area and the attractions where to sit on the Hornblower for example. From pick up at our accommodations a real plus and first stop at the Skylon Tower just ahead of all the crowds to the Hornblower Cruise into the falls skip the line
he was excellent. The van was clean and comfortable, and as Dustin drove us around he imparted local information and pointed out highlights we might want to return to. All this, while doing a great job as a cautious and courteous driver. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat. We always use Viator all over the world. Their high standards for their contractors sets them apart. If you want a great tour to all the must see parts of Niagara in one morning...this is perfect. We had a great morning enjoying the city and our guide Dustin. It left us with enough time to return later in the day and take in some of the other attractions mentioned on our tour. This tour starts at Skylon and includes the Table Rock area, Tunnels Under The Falls, Hornblower Cruise and much much more all without the pressure of parking and hiking to the attraction.
Great Tour! Guy, our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny, and courteous opening and closing doors for us. He gave us tips on where to stand for the best views, etc. I loved the order of the tour: Journey behind the falls Skylon Tower, drive around Niagara Falls including the whirlpool, floral clock, etc. and ending with the Hornblower cruise. I don't feel like we missed anything by touring only the Canadian side of the Falls. The small group aspect always enhances a tour. Carole and John
Our driver, Chris did a great job, took us to all the important sites, and we had a great time. Skylon tower, and Behind the falls were great, but the Boat tour was exceptionalliterally a bucket list experience-don't miss it.
Using See Sight was the best decision we made. The door to door service was so convenient. Our guide, Guy, was great. Very informative and fun. We had a tour behind the Falls, saw the view from the Skylon and a ride on the Hornblower, as well as other sights and history. We received answers to all our questions and learned so much. We didn't have to wait in any lines which made us extremely happy. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a private guided tour at a great price.
They were very late in picking us up but once you got started we really enjoyed the experience. First up was Journey Behind Falls, Second Skylon Tower, Third little drive with some detailed information of area and some history, Last Hornblower. Our guide was very personable and informative. He got us right through line at Hornblower. Have been on many tours in different cities and sometimes the guides are just talking and not really engaging with the group. I felt the young man we had really connected with us and gave us some great history of the area without overdoing it.
Randy was a great guide. We started on the US side after being promptly picked up at our hotel on the Canadian side of the falls. We were able to go to cave of the winds, stand behind the falls, ride the maid of the mist. The Canadian side was great too and we also saw the flower clock and skylon.
Our tour was beyond our expectations. We were able to see the FfFalls from every angle, journey behind the falls, ground level on the Hornblower boat and from high up in the Skylon tower. We had a great tour guide Mike who was very informative about the making of the Falls and surrounding sites.
Best day out !!!!!.
Stunning full day full of brilliant, high quality things....
Starts with pickup at the hotel.... very friendly and knowledgable guide.
Tour of Niagra history, background, etc.
Tour of the caves below - getting within feet of the waterfall.,, very good
Quick visit to the skylon tower for stunning high view of the whole of Niagra.
Followed by Niagra river / horseshoe tour really close on the boat... on the hornblower - this was stunning and worth it alone.
Quick ride out to the tesla hydro plant and whirlpool - very good and enjoyable ride.
Lunch overlooking the falls.... kids and all were in awe of the table and view.
Night river cruise on the Friday included... brilliant in the dark and fireworks....real wow moment.
Then to finish a very exclusive trip to the illumination tower to change the lights and colours on the falls themselves..... OMG....stunning.
Just awesome this has been.... our guide throughout was brilliant and made it slick, funny and enjoyable.......
Doing what: Day and Night Tour of Niagara Falls
What a FABULOUS tour!!! First of all, our tour guide, Caleb was AWESOME!! He was super knowledgeable about the area and the places we visited. He was friendly, engaging and engaged with all of us on the tour. If you have to take a tour, we HIGHLY recommend that you take the tour with him.
He came to pick us up at 8h30 and we hit the Cave of the Winds first. Going through customs was a breeze. You can tell Caleb has a good relationship with the boarder crossing guys and it made it easy for us. Cave of the Winds is breath-taking! You get so close to the falls, you A. get totally wet and B. you can touch them and feel the power of the water. Then we toured Goat Island. Thank Goodness for Caleb who took the time to explain what we were seeing! Then we did Maid of the Mist, which got us right in the middle of the Horseshoe fall. Simply awe-inspiring! If you are afraid to get wet, these are not the attractions for you!
We stopped for lunch at the obligatory tourist-trap. There are healthier options if you seek them out. We saw the Flower Clock, then we walked down by the waterfalls and while we were walking around, went to get our tickets for the Sklyon Tower, so we would be able to go up as soon as we got there. He was super efficient! The view from the Skylon Tower was beautiful! You could see for miles and really take in the surroundings. A great way to end the day!
This was worth the expense. We did all of the key attractions on our first day!
A special Thank You to Caleb, our Tour Guide Extraordinaire!!

Absolutely superb. Only a small group max 6 and we were only with 4 people. The tour guide called Dustin was excellent. Very informative and not intrusive. No queue waiting and the Skylon Tower Lunch was excellent - silver service with a table near the window. Although expensive it was worth every penny and would highly recommend this tour.
Excellent value and good local information from our tour guide. Return ticket to Skylon Tower meant you could see the Falls all lit up at night.
