Our guide, Deanna was fantastic. She was witty and clever making the tour both interesting and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and most especially the Power Station. The views at the end of the tunnel were amazing. We love how everything flowed together nicely from the Skylon Tower to the Power Station and all stops between. We cannot say enough good things about this tour.

Mary was amazing. She is knowledgeable and is passionate about Niagara Falls and the history and beauty. She truly cares about her people too. I have a bad back and she worked in places to sit along the way. Sue checked on everyone to make sure they were comfortable! I would highly recommend Mary for any future tours.

Our tour guide, Gord, was excellent. Very informative and entertaining! It is a lot of walking but there are numerous stops along the way so it's not overwhelming.

Gord was an excellent guide - keeping us entertained for 3 hours - very helpful and considerate. The tour takes 3 hours almost so don’t plan anything immediately after
