We had a small group of 7 which was perfect. The small motor coach had spacious comfortable seats with good leg room. It was preferable to the huge tour buses. Peter our guide picked us up at the Fairmont where we stayed so it was super convenient. We enjoyed the stops at Table Rock, the maple syrup tasting and Niagara on the Lake. We did not do the boat ride and chose to leisurely enjoy the various vantage points of the falls instead. We felt we got close enough to see and feel the power of the falls and even felt the mists from below. The itinerary was well timed and we did not feel rushed. We left at 8:30am and came back into downtown Toronto by 5:00pm just in time for our dinner reservation. It was a very enjoyable tour. Our guide Peter was pleasant, laid back and efficient. Just the right amount of talk without being chatty. We even took him up on his recommendation about Tim Horton’s chicken noodle soup!

We were part of the group that was involved in the accident on Saturday, October 22. Our driver, David, was amazing in his efforts to make sure we were safe. His actions resulted in our not having any threatening injuries. After the incident, the owners of the Between the Lines winery were amazing. They stepped up and made sure we were OK and offered their winery while we waited for another tour bus. They offered us food and many servings of their incredible wine. Our new driver, Richard, went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our other tasting sessions. Can't say enough about how well we were treated and taken care of by your staff. From a situation that could have been traumatic, we came out with 6 new amazing friends. Based on our situation, our experience did end up being very memorable.

It was our first time doing a winery tour and this tour did not disappoint. It was a great overall experience. Konzelman winery stood out with the famous peach wine and beautiful family story. Pilliteri's had some great ice wines and we got to see the famous 42 ft. Long concrete table. Inniskilin was a little busier but a beautiful property. We weren't informed much about the history of the winery but we got to enjoy the wine outside on the picnic benches and just relax. Their Vidal ice wine was delicious!

The trip was so well organised - and the Falls, awe inspiring of course! You must do the boat trip too, just amazing! Our driver, Kaleb, was so friendly and informative, thank you. recommended!

Excellent and very helpful guide, Tony. Full of information and so nice.
