Very good experience, tour guide was extremely knowledgeable with a fabulous sense of humour. Our only criticism is that many places of reference were identified on route but due to the windows being quite dirty on the outside, and condensation on the inside (which we could wipe away), we couldn't see what was being referenced. Overall a good experience and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Great tour, great guide in Allay who was full of information and fun. Meal in the Sheraton was excellent tho could take a long time to re-fill trays. Enjoyed wandering around Niagara on the Lake and learning about the region. The main event, The Falls, were magnificent. Would recommend this tour company.

excursion très bien organisée. Guide très intéressant par ses explications et ses commentaires, et prêt à répondre à toutes questions relatives à l'excursion et, plus largement, à la visite de Toronto.

We enjoyed the interesting facts about Niagara that we learned on the tour from our guide. The amount of people attending the tour was a small group, which I enjoyed.

Liked the tour. Informative and helpful guide, Michael. Visited main attractions such as CN tower, city hall, path, and casa Loma. Well worth it!
