    Kaleb was a fabulous tour guide. The lack of a boat ride to the falls was a severe disappointment. Substituting a tour of the former power plant was boring and disappointing.

It was a smooth pick up and ride! We felt very safe! The bus was comfortable and the Tourguide was awesome! We had 3 hours of free time at the Niagara Falls. We could have used a little more time, but we managed to see all that we wanted to see. We had after that a few more stops that were also beautiful! The wine tasting at the end was very delicious.

Small-group excursion (6 people) with enough time at the falls to follow a walk along the river and a boat ride (unforgettable even if very wet!). Return after lunch, stopping at each interesting spot.

Kaleb was a fabulous tour guide. The lack of a boat ride to the falls was a severe disappointment. Substituting a tour of the former power plant was boring and disappointing.

We had the best time with Sam our guide she was well informed and took us to places we would have never have seen on our own. 100% Recommended.

Our tour guide was Kaleb and he was very informative.
