Spectacular. The guide was knowledgeable and was able to transport us back in time...we could appreciate the dangerous undertaking to freedom. The most interesting part of the tour was Harriet Tubman's place of worship and one of the stops on the Underground Railroad. Great care has been taken to keep it in it's original state...so exciting. The walls in the basement display dozens of historical photos including Harriet Tubman at various points in her life. This tour is a must complete to complete your visit to the Canadian side of the Falls!

A really insightful first hand account of the descendants of the Freedom Seekers who now reside in Canada. The tour guy was very knowledgeable and fun. Good Tour.

I took this tour and the guide was very informative. I was even able to arrange a pickup a from an alternate hotel that was not necessarily one of the pickups listed. We had actually scheduled for an afternoon tour, but there ended up being a conflict and the tour guide gave us the option for the morning tour and this worked out very well. The guide was very knowledgeable and he even had pictures to show. He took us to certain sites where the slaves had crossed, showed us a slave burial ground, and even the first church Harriett Tubman attended in Canada. If you want to learn more about certain history, this is the trip for you.

This was an amazing tour. I thought I knew a lot about the underground railroad but there was so much more to learn not only in general terms but seeing and learning about some of the historical sites and having Kevin explain their stories really added to my knowledge. Keven was simply wonderful, he was a few minutes early, patient with our 2 kids, very knowledgeable about the subject matter and willing to spend time at stops. While this tour was primarily about the underground railroad and how it involved the local area we did get to see a lot of the surrounding areas and stopped at several spots to view the river, the flower clock and other sites that we would have missed without a car.. Would highly recommend this tour..

Although our guide, Kevin, was late to pick us up due to traffic on the bridge, he more than made up for it. He was informative and fun. Some in our group weren't sure they would enjoy this tour, but Kevin quickly changed their minds with interesting history and information. We all learned a lot and had a great time.
