What people are saying about Toronto

Es war ein tolles Erlebnis die Niagarafälle zu sehen. Die Organisation hat sehr gut geklappt, wir sind pünktlich abgefahren und wieder zurück gekommen. Unser Fahrer und Guide Bernard war phantastisch. Er hat uns, sehr unterhaltsam, viele interessante Dinge erzählt und gute Tips gegeben. Toll fanden wir, dass er nicht nur in Englisch sondern auch in sehr gutem Deutsch erzählt hat. Wir können die Tour wärmstens weiterempfehlen. Klaus und Beate

I had a great day even though a bit rushed sometimes. Our driver Felix was great and had a lot of background information. And the boat tour was definitely a highlight, super fun!

Even with the rain we enjoyed the Tour, everything went as explained, don't buy a Tour with dinner at Sheraton Buffett, not a good choice.

Tour guide Robert was informative and funny. Great cruise around the islands and amazing view if the city skyline
