Overall, one of my best trips ever and I wish everyone can experience the beauty of Niagara Falls just the way it is. Take this tour and you will be very happy. Also if you can, upgrade your hotels, it will enhance your experience.
One of the best tours my parents did in US, the driver/tour guide was just exceptional. The tour really depends on tour guide, and he took care of my parents and everyone in the bus exceptionally well. He made sure every place is covered but also gave them time to come back and gave space. It really felt that my parents were in a very safe hand.
Any point during or before tour the tour guide was there for any questions on phone which I really really appreciate. The places where the accommodation was done was also really good, for the price and the peak summer season getting good place to stay is tough but this was really well planned and well round tour.
I really liked every thing about that tour and best thing is that the hotel was really great, i know it was not a 5 star hotel, but it was really comfortable and very clean. there was a lot of amazing things like Cave of the Winds, Old Fort Niagara , Niagara Falls illumination and Maid of the mist boat ride. Our tour guide was a very helpful guy, he was also really funny and very professional he was also really funny. The tour was really very well organized. I was really happy i chose that company.
We really needed some time off, and i am really glad we chose that tour, it really worth it, we saw Niagara Falls at night and it was extremely beautiful. Nothing is more fun that spending time with your family in such an amazing place like Niagara Falls, we had a great time, our accommodation was great and out guide was a great guy. I just wish they had wifi in the bus.
The tour was really very well organized, we moved exactly on time, there was no delay, we were right on schedule in everything. The next best thing was Niagara falls Illuminations, it was amazing! we also really enjoyed The Maid of The Mist Boat Ride. We loved the hotels as they were very nice and also our bus was clean and comfortable. The tour guide was great guy and he really deserved the daily tip.
Me and my family like almost ever activity in that amazing tour, Old Fort Niagara, Whirlpool State Park,Maid of the Mist Boat and Niagara Falls Illumination. our bus was good but unfortunately bathroom was for emergencies only, but we stopped for breaks. I also loved our guide because he was really helpful guy and very patient. I would really love to join and other tour that is organized by that company.
