A hot summer day, long lines -- then boarding the Hornblower cruise on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Yes, it is wet and loud -- but cooling and amazing to get into the spray at the bottom of the Falls. We didn't take any of the other features of the tour, as did few others that we met while waiting in line to board the boat. "Rain gear" supplied by Hornblower. The wait was helped a bit by staff maintaining the 6 foot distance between groups. The boat was much less crowded than the similar cruise on the American side ("Maid of the Mist"). The view from the bottom -- along with the thundering roar of the Horseshoe Falls -- conveys the power of Niagara that words alone cannot do.
Every one got their own individual rain gear to keep or dispose properly.

My wife and I had an excellent time; amazing views of the Falls, local tour was also a winner, the stop at the bakery was at the right time for a delicious treat. The only recommendation would be for the tour guide Roland to stand in the middle of the group to give instructions so he can have everyones attention and the instructions can be listen to more clearly. But overall an excellent Tour and well done Roland.

Well worth the time and money. Even though it’s only about 20 minutes you get up close and personal with the huge Niagara Falls at the horseshoe End. Great way to get photographs of the American Niagara Falls and the bridal Falls. Yes she will get a little damp but they provide waterproof ponchos

First of all let me say I was leary about booking a tour online. It helped that the company had actual customer service. Dayna was very entertaining and knowledgeable. My wife and I enjoyed every bit of the tour from the maid of mist boat tour to cave of the winds. Nothing like a close up of view. Falls spectacular and this time of year no crowds.

Great experience seeing the falls from this vantage point, absolutely loved it. Definitely do this if you're seeing the falls, it's a whole different experience from a boat! Thank you for the memories.
