We were picked up neatly at the casino where we could park for free. Then we were dropped off at the cove. View was beautiful and experience to stand under the waterfall was thrill. Despite free ponchos you will get wet. Then neatly picked up and dropped off at the maide of mist. It was also very nice and thanks for the tip to stand at the bottom left of the ship. Final view from watchtower was nice closing. Back we were dropped off at our car in the parking garage. What a service. We also gratefully made use of the tip that parking on p1 in the evening is free. Also good food in hard rock cafe.

it made the experience good. the cave of the winds and maid of the mist was my favorite. it was raining the day we went thats the only thing that would have made it better. some of the wait time was not good but aganie if it wasnt for the rain the wait time would have been nice.

We did this half day tour and it was great getting ahead of the lines on a very busy July 3rd. Dana was very pleasant and efficient in getting us to where we needed to go, with easy pick ups and drop offs at each site just past the ticket counters. We had a great day!
