Loved it! Loved our guide Dayna. Loved The Maiden of the mist, Cave of the winds, brink and bridal veil of the falls were great. The weather was rainy but everything was still worked out. Only thing I would suggest is to add some more healthy foods at place we stopped for lunch and Maybe not bring Canada guests over to America which seemed unnecessary. Just meet them at Maiden of the mist attraction or pick them up after getting other guests from American side.

It was like cherry on top for my vacation. The zip line experience made everything worth it. I was very scared at the beginning but the staff was very friendly and made me understand all the steps and rules. Please book online as I did in advance to avoid queues and waiting .My daughter was scared to go but the moment we get down , she was willing to take another ride. Thank you team for a thrilling and awesome experience.

We had a great time going to the park, unfortunately we didn’t see any animals but it wasn’t the time of the year to see them. It was quite a exhausting walk but it was mainly because of the lots of snow we had walk through. Also our guide Mike was really nice, definitely recommend this tour.

Fab!! Amazing views and amazing experience. Fab to have such an accomplished female pilot too

Nice day trip with a nice little hike through the fresh snow.
