Amazing tour!

This tour was amazing! Guillaume was extremely knowledgeable about the canal. There was no question that I asked that he couldn't answer. He was very patient with my overly excited 13 year old. He ensures to put safety first! I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Niagara Falls area in Canada!

Unique experience - we all got to learn a new skill and also learn about the locks and history of the surrounding area. A fairly relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

We really enjoyed the tour. Guillaume was a wonderdul guide for our 1st time. We would definitely recommend!
