Amazing trip! But not enough time at the falls
Rachel_G, Dec 2021
Amazing experience viewing the falls. However we would have definitely appreciated more time in Niagara. We got dropped off around 10.45 at the Skylon tower and were told to be back at the meeting point at 12.15. Giving us only an hour and a half to go up the tower and see the falls from the high viewpoint, then walk down to the falls, stopping to take pictures as we walked the length of the falls, then walk the 30 minutes back to the meeting point. We felt quite rushed as we had no time to go up the street in the town of Niagara which looked really fun, or even sit to eat lunch or grab a drink. At least another hour would have been greatly appreciated. We then went wine tasting where we were given 4 different samples of wine to try. And then on to Niagara-on-the-lake which was a pretty place to visit for an hour. We very much enjoyed the trip but definitely would have liked more time in Niagara Falls itself as that was entirely what we had come for. At the time of booking we were also told our trip substituted the hornblower boat cruise to journey behind the falls, but found out when we were picked up we were going up the Skylon tower instead of behind the falls. So more time in Niagara would have been better so we could have gone behind the falls too as we really wanted to do that.
Amazing visit to the unbelievable falls
Stephen_S, Dec 2021
Roy the tour guide was excellent throughout the day. Niagra was amazing, not busy, which meant we had a really relaxed visit. Unfortunately, we we were not informed that the boat trip was not running until we arrived at Niagra, but this did not affect our trip as we completed the walk behind the falls. Thoroughly recommended, and would also recommend as long as you can in niagra on the lake. Stunning town with quaint shops. Recommend the Scottish pie in the bakery.
Rainy Niagra

Nice tour ,great guide and bus driver. A little confused at pick up time. Too many buses at the same place. And no indication which bus we were assigned to.

Tim Harris gave us wonderful historical insight into Niagara Falls and the other stops during the day. He was a fantastic tour guide, the vehicle was very comfortable and the Falls were magnificent.
We enjoyed the tour great day for it...
Sarina_B, Oct 2017
We enjoyed the tour great day for it we were really lucky with the weather... the only fault was the waiting with the tour driver at their office and then the drive back we had to change buses on the main road. Worth doing for sure!
