A successful trip! Kalep the King- took the trip with us and had an interesting story to tell about each house on the way to Niagara Falls. After arrival, you can take a boat trip, which is really recommended, after which you have a good 4 hours to walk along the water and eat something, or to go on other optional excursions.

The activity is very well planned and respects the scheduled times. It includes a pickup in downtown Toronto and a pleasant transfer accompanied by a description of the surrounding places by the driver / guide. Once you arrive at the Falls, all experiences are well planned and organized, without wasting time. In addition, in your free time you can visit the surroundings of the area, which are very fun. The tour concludes with further small stops on the way back. Absolutely recommended experience.

I really enjoyed my trip. The Niagara Falls are breathtaking. I was completely blown away. I just want to make afew points to help fellow travellers - We were told our bus would pick us up from Shoppers Drug Mart, the bus was actually across the road at Samsung - The bus that took us to Niagara Falls was small and the journey there was quite bumpy. I was glad I only had a small breakfast - Definitely book to do the boat ride. It's amazing to get so close to the Falls. - I did the zip line and I'm so glad I did. My advice is to do it quickly after the boat ride (you can pay more to skip ahead of the queue which is worth it). I delayed between the boat ride and the zip line and it was a bit rushed. - Also we were told it was 15 minutes walk back to the bus. I would say it was more like 20/25 minutes. And there are great photo opportunities along the way to the bus. So give yourself even more than 20/25 minutes. But overall it was a great day. I wish we could have stayed longer
