We had a small group of 7 which was perfect. The small motor coach had spacious comfortable seats with good leg room. It was preferable to the huge tour buses. Peter our guide picked us up at the Fairmont where we stayed so it was super convenient. We enjoyed the stops at Table Rock, the maple syrup tasting and Niagara on the Lake. We did not do the boat ride and chose to leisurely enjoy the various vantage points of the falls instead. We felt we got close enough to see and feel the power of the falls and even felt the mists from below. The itinerary was well timed and we did not feel rushed. We left at 8:30am and came back into downtown Toronto by 5:00pm just in time for our dinner reservation. It was a very enjoyable tour. Our guide Peter was pleasant, laid back and efficient. Just the right amount of talk without being chatty. We even took him up on his recommendation about Tim Horton’s chicken noodle soup!

Really enjoyed this experience and made our trip to the Falls that bit more special. Helpful and informative staff who leave you to look and take pictures from the viewing points in your own time. The views and going down the tunnels to stand behind Horeshoe Falls was brilliant. So pleased we chose this activity and would definitely recommend.

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

C'est une belle activité à faire. J'ai bien aimé car on est vraiment proche des chutes, pratique pour ceux qui ont le mal de mer et qui ne voudrait pas faire le bateaux. Il ne faut pas être trop claustrophobe pour le faire car il faut prendre un ascenseur pour descendre à l'intérieur des chutes.

Very cool to get up close to the falls and feel it's mighty rumble.
