What people are saying about Niagara Falls, Ontario

It was our first time doing a winery tour and this tour did not disappoint. It was a great overall experience. Konzelman winery stood out with the famous peach wine and beautiful family story. Pilliteri's had some great ice wines and we got to see the famous 42 ft. Long concrete table. Inniskilin was a little busier but a beautiful property. We weren't informed much about the history of the winery but we got to enjoy the wine outside on the picnic benches and just relax. Their Vidal ice wine was delicious!

We went in October and the weather and less crowded experience was on our side. we thoroughly enjoyed going behind the falls… but seeing the falls from the deck was absolutely amazing! The brilliant colors of the rainbow stunned our children. Seeing their joyful surprise was a precious memory we will never forget

The trip was so well organised - and the Falls, awe inspiring of course! You must do the boat trip too, just amazing! Our driver, Kaleb, was so friendly and informative, thank you. recommended!

Excellent and very helpful guide, Tony. Full of information and so nice.

Great trip, great fun seeing the falls in unusual ways!
