Beautiful experience. Tour highly recommended. The guide Emily was great and very professional. He put us at ease despite speaking neither English nor Spanish but he went out of his way to make himself understood and explain the details. It was nothing short of excellent. The two drivers of which I remember only one name (Gaetano) were punctual and efficient. The safety and comfort of travelers have been put first. Congratulations, really very good. I'm just sorry I didn't tip them because it slipped my mind (I thought about it later) as we were in a hurry upon arriving in New York and said goodbye quickly. Brava Emily, good Gaetano and the other driver. I recommend this tour organized in detail.

The overall experience was amazing, the falls are majestic. The bus left on time and the instructions for the meeting point were very clear. The tour guide (Emily) was very kind and gave us advice on where it is best to stay on the ship at the Maid of the Mist. The bus was somewhat uncomfortable due to the great distance, but stops were made to go to the bathroom and buy something to eat. I highly recommend this tour and would definitely do it again.

It is a long and exhausting trip but it was truly worth it, I just wish we had more free time (like one more hour), the bus was comfortable, our guide Emily and our drivers were great!
