I did the trip to the Niagara Falls today and it was awesome. The tourguide picked everyone up in the morning and tried to make it comfortable for everyone. He explained some of his knowledge with us during the ride, which was pretty interesting. We had stops at the helicopter station, where we had the chance to fly with a helicopter above the Niagara Falls, the whirlpool, the American falls (the boat ride was there too), the Canadian falls and the small city Niagara-on-the-lake. We had free time at each station (about 1-1,5 hours except for the heli+ whirlpool station). I felt in such good hands with them and I would book a trip with them again definitely. It is a big recommendation from me!
