Hi, Excellent falls, beautiful day, great experience, however the tour guide was a little rude, also the tour was to be 9 hours ended up being 13hours, poor planning, time wasted, could have been conducted much better, the Sheraton Dinner was good!!
This was a great day and evening. Very informative driver,(Fabio i think)took us to lots of places as well as the Falls it's self .The only bad thing was no hotel pick up.
The driver was named Michael Francis. He was a good and careful driver and had lots to tell us about the area as we traveled. The bus was air conditioned with a very small bathroom. The Niagara Falls were so beautiful! Taking the Hornblower boat out was great fun! Near the horseshoe section, it was like standing in a hurricane! Everyone outside was drenched in minutes, but it cooled us down. Unfortunately, the bus arrived about an hour later than it was scheduled to arrive, causing some promised attractions to be unavailable, and waiting was somewhat inconvenient.
This is a wonderful day trip to Niagara Falls from Toronto. We were supposed to be picked up at our hotel, but less than 24 hours before the your we reviewed an email saying we had to walk to a Tim Hortons a couple of blocks away, due to
