The trip was organized and even when the meeting point changed it was communicated well in advance. The itinerary had changed a bit due to the winery portion being changed, but I honestly loved going to Niagara On The Lake even more ! Most importantly I felt safe during the entire trip, and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Our guide Edward was really nice and knowledgeable about the history of all our stops! We unfortunately didn’t get to stop at the wineries because of COVID. I was pretty disappointed we didn’t get to try the ice wine but Edward made it up to me! We also got to stop in at the Niagara on the lake little town. Niagara was beautiful and the boat trip was fun as well! We got pretty wet on the front of the boat so bring the right clothes and shoes. My husband even said he could have use goggles. The weather was perfect and we got lucky on how non crowded everything was. We felt like we had a very good trip. The only thing that we didn’t care for was the bus ride there and back. This was a smaller bus and it was so bumpy it hurt our backs. Other than that it was a perfect trip!
