Our tour guide John was very knowledgeable and did a great job of pointing out the many historical points of interest. We visited the Carelton Marcello tower, the city park, the Rockwood park, and the stunning reversing falls. Then the jet boat ride. Folks, you just won't believe this. Our captain took us up river right into the reversing Rapids. He was very capable and never made us feel uncomfortable. To be that close to that kind of awe inspiring power of nature was truly amazing. And don't worry about getting wet. We also saw several seals frolicking in our wake. This tour is highly recommended.
we had 6 in our group and didn't want a huge bus all day. So this was a Honda Odyssey with plenty of room, able to hear the driver and tour guide, plus could stop whenever we wanted, would highly recommend.
