Nate was our guide. He did great getting us where we needed to be. It was perfect weather. We had a fabulous time that day. The only reason I’m giving it a 4 is that I felt it was over priced. I do believe the amount of actual tour against admission prices was more than doubled. There was no transportation involved only walking. I take lots of tours and feel extra pricing is well worth it. This I did not. It is easy to get these tickets on your own and get where you need to be.

We enjoyed the tour guide (Zachary) and all of his information. Loved that he stopped and took pictures of anyone who wanted pics in front of the park sign. The Maid of the Mist was enjoyable and our guide took the time to make sure we had seats for the adventure. We are elderly (in 70's) and lost track of the group when we got on the Trolley. I would not reccommend Cave of the Winds to senior citizens. We got half way through the adventure and had to turn around because we were not told about all of the steps going down....then up. No way could we have continued.

Plan to get wet, but not soaked. Mist spray is the worse it gets. Very impressive sights. Well worth the visit. Maybe bring water resistant shoes. The poncho will drop on them.
