We had a wonderful time. Saied was our tour guide. He was very informative. He made sure we had all our questions answered. He made sure we had enough bathroom breaks because we have a 6 and 8 year old. He made sure that we had our tickets to all the sights and walked us as far as he could to make sure we were good to go. He held on to our shoes for the cave of the winds so they wouldn't get wet. I read that some people suggest doing the activities on your own to save money. I promise you that it's not worth it. Do yourself a favor and book your tour with them. Saied was awesome!!

Super fun time! Our tour guide was great! Transportation was top notch, and the activities were great family fun! We thoroughly enjoyed our Niagara Falls half day sightseeing tour. The people we met on the tour were really nice too. Great activity if you are planning a trip to Niagara Falls. Highly Recommended!

Perfect way to experience Niagara Falls!

The convenience of booking this tour as opposed to trying to do it all yourself is a no-brainer. Tyler met us on time at our hotel - actually a little early - and our adventure began! The car was very clean and roomy. My family tends to be a little off-color, and Tyler was up to the task. He was very informative and answered all of our questions, and was a great sport as he listened to our "alternative history" on some of the attractions we visited. Our itinerary was fully explained and he told us how much time we could expect to spend at each site. After each attraction, we didn't have to go looking for him: He found us easily (our hats helped) and off we went to the next stop. He kept the tour moving, but there was no rushing. In all seriousness, this tour is an amazing deal. Groups are small (4-6 people) so you really do get personal treatment. I highly recommend this tour. I know we will be using it again when we get back up to the Falls for another vacation.
