What people are saying about Ontario

Small-group excursion (6 people) with enough time at the falls to follow a walk along the river and a boat ride (unforgettable even if very wet!). Return after lunch, stopping at each interesting spot.

Pick up at various points in the city. Small group in a very comfortable mini bus. Very friendly and attentive guide.

My experience was breathtaking. Everywhere we went people were welcoming and exceptionally friendly and good.

We were only 6 people which was the good side. Nathan was very informative . Amazing experience.

Wonderful ride, excellent view, just a lot of waiting time but the ride is worth!
