Great
This is a long walking tour but not fast paced, so comfortable to do. The cruise, walk behind the falls and information about areas around Niagara were good. I had an issue with my booking, but that was with booking staff and not the tour itself.

Daniel was an excellent tour guide full of facts and trivia. We are here late in the season, so we were glad to find a company still operating! The Maid of the Mist boats are already docked for the winter. We loved the front of the line experience, even though the lines were short. I’m sure in the summer crowds that would be well worth it! The walking tour and cave experience was the best! My only complaint was that we didn’t realize how wet we would get. With lots of stores closed there was hardly a place to buy dry socks for my son. Fortunately I did but his shoes were soaked and it was very cold. Perhaps selling or offering shoe covers? Recommending on your website? The ponchos worked well, just not for the shoes. Thank you very much! Your company made our trip to Niagara a wonderful memory! Even though we were wet and cold, We would highly recommend it to others. So grateful you were still available into November!

Valerie was a great tour guide. The walking part (Beyond the Falls) was a little long but she was very knowledgeable and friendly.
