This was a fantastic tour and our tour guide, Saied, was the absolute Best!! He did an excellent job on getting us to where we needed to be and on our time line without being rude or pushy. He shared his knowledge of Niagara Falls New York with us and we learned a whole lot of the area. I would highly recommend him to anyone because you couldn’t ask for a better tour guide! Thanks, Saied for making our tour and day the absolute best!!
Great experience

This was a great experience for all of us! The power of the water was indescribable.
We got drenched going up to the Cave of the Wind. We took lots of pictures.
Jimmy Coyote was our guide. He was experienced and well-informed.
Excellent guide and memorable day! Worth every penny!

Our guide Dana was so knowledgeable of each site we went to and made the trip fun and memorable. Dana’s communication was excellent and we are so happy we bought this package and would highly recommend it to anyone. Our favorite part of the trip was Cave of the Winds because we were so close to the falls and the views were so amazing. We also enjoyed the Maid of the Mist and it was something we will never forget. We also enjoyed being in a small group of people during this tour. We were grouped with a very nice family from our same state. This trip was worth every penny and we would definitely do it again.
Worth it

Eric was a very pleasant and informative. He picked us on time and was a pleasure the entire time.
Great experience.
Skip the lines! But don’t call this a tour.

Skipping the ticket lines was fantastic. (I overheard one staff member at the Maid of the Mist/Observation Deck say that their ticket line alone was four hours long!) But, calling this a “tour” is not accurate. It was more like having a driver who was able to drive you to the destinations, grab your tickets and reservations for you, and get you past the lines. Our “guide” was rarely with us otherwise.
