The BEST tour that I have ever been! Everything was perfect. From the transportation to the destination. Will definitely recommend to everyone. Special thanks to our guide Vinny (Pedro) who was so awesome. He didn’t only bring us to our destinations but he also gave us history of each places. His recommendations were also superb! My boyfriend and I LOVED the restaurant he suggested. I would love to come back here some time in summer with family and will definitely do the tour with them. I had so much fun with the tour. I felt safe and relaxed❤️

Ngl it was sketch but it was one of the greatest experiences you could have for an evening, the light show was amazing, the three course meal was mid tier but changing the lights of falls was an experience combined with a great guide made the whole experience perfect!! 100% I’m very happy we took a shot at this experience with a small amount of reviews!

Journey behind the falls was amazing and educational! It’s a great way to get close to the falls.
