It was fun evening. Nick, our guide, was very knowledgeable and totally fun. He made it seem like he was interested and cared about the ground he was covering. I guess I didn't read everything, because I thought we would be in the tunnel. The light show was good and dinner was ok (service at the restaurant was excellent). Bill at the light control booth was great. All in all, I would recommend this tour .

This is a very unique, one of a kind tour behind the scenes of lighting of the falls at night. Dinner at Table Rock restaurant included, with a nice, up close view of the falls. We also got an up close view of the nightly fireworks. Definitely worth it, and our tour guide Cheryl Green was awesome and knowledgeable as a long time local.

I would definitely recommend See Sights Tours. We did the Small Group Half-Day tour and the Power Station Light Show w/Dinner. I liked that both tours was a group of seven. Herman was our guide for both tours and he was excellent! He was knowledgeable and very helpful.

Herman was our tour guide and he was very informative about Niagara Falls. The dinner was very good. The Power Station exhibit and the Illumination Tower were very interesting.

it was a wonderful evening, couldn't ask for a better guide, very friendly!
