This was an excellent tour with good tour guide interface with the members of the walk, excellent knowledge of local history, excellent narrative and excellent story pictures to show how this facility was in its construction and uniqueness. We would highly recommend this tour group

The tour is amazing. They will tell you the history and story behind the falls. The only thing was very disappointing to me was the parking. I paid over 200 dollars on parking. When I arrived to my first tour (I did two) everything was closed and I was just arriving to Canada so my hotel wasn’t ready. I ask at the police station where I could park and they told me the only place was in the meters. No true, If you go find the parking that has a fee per day (in between $20 to $30) and avoid the meters. I pay more in parking that any day of my trip. I was very disappointing. The tours were excellent and both of my tourist guides did and amazing job.

This tour was misleading. The skylon and our tour guide were fine but although we knew it was a walking tour - it was disappointing - I could have booked these venues myself - when we got to the tunnel the guide was unaware that there would be no guided tour so we were left to do it on our own

It was a very interesting tour. The tour guide was very professional and gave us a lot of interesting information. We visited the amazing site of the Old Power Station.
