What people are saying about Hornblower Niagara Cruises

The tour was fantastic. Our guide, Joe was educational, fun, and polite. We were a little surprised at it being a group tour as there was no mention upon booking but lunch with a total stranger turned out to be an amusing twist. The only thing I feel could have been better was the lunch at the Skylon tower. With that view and how highly spoken of they are, we had greater expectations. We were given 3 meal options of which my husband and I chose 2, both were greatly disappointing. Im not sure if its because it's part of a tour they didn't put in as much care or if that actually is their standard. However, we understand that it is not our guides fault that the meal was subpar which is why we chose not to reflect that in our star rating. None the less we canceled our dinner reservations there for the following day.

First of all our tour guide was by far the best guide ever, and we’ve been on a bunch of tours all over the world. Although the helicopter ride was cool, and offered a view like no other, I would have liked a lower altitude view. We really enjoyed our lunch, and loved the view. We had a last minute substitution for the boat ride, and at first we were disappointed, but it was a very fair trade, and we had a great time while picking up the boat ride on our own the next day. Wonderful tour!!

Oz was great, so personable and knowledgable. We saw some great sights around Niagara, including seeing the falls from above. Lunch at the Skylon to complete our tour. A wonderful way to end our holiday in Canada, thank you so much.

If the travel budget allows, be sure to book. The helicopter flight is something really special and gives a unique perspective on the falls. Great guide.

it's was an great experience tour guide was awesome and so was the other travelers
