Gilles was a fun and knowledgeable guide. He treated us like his family! I was skeptical about using a guide service, But the experience with Giles and the tour company put us at ease. Giles called when he was picking us up. The van was comfortable and clean. I would recommend us them! no standing in lines, right to the front of the line each time.

wonderful way to see all the angles of the American side of the falls. the weather wasn't the most cooperative because it's still early spring but it made for short lines and easy viewing. Our tour guide Gili was great
