        Spectacular view and we stayed warm in December!
        We were going to take the boat tour of The Falls but opted for the helicopter tour instead. Glad we did! We stayed nice and warm and got a spectacular view of The Falls! Three cheers for staying warm and dry!

        Great walking tour before boat cruise
        There were four adults, and one 9 year old child that went with us on this walking tour. Our guide met us at the bottom of the Skylon Tower. It was always on time. The walking tour was a little over a mile of walking. It was hard to walk as a large group, though through the crowds of tourists. But overall I would recommend this tour again.

        Exceptional Tour
        This tour was amazing. Jovan was an excellent tour guide and was sure to provide us with all his knowledge of Niagra Falls. Each point of interest (Skylon Tower, Voyage to the Falls, Journey Under the Falls) were excellent sites to behold. Dinner at Table Rock restaurant was excellent and we were fortunate enough to have window seats to enjoy the Falls while we ate. We debated on the Illumination of the Falls part, but decided to go and it turned out to be a fun ending to a fabulous day.

        A lovely and well planned tour! If you are in the area you simply must go on this tour!
        Lovely experience! I read the reviews which sounded promising and am happy to report that this tour is perfection! We saw the falls from all angles. We were picked up at our hotel and didn’t have to worry about a thing. The day was well planned out and we enjoyed every detail of the tour. It was lovely to experience the falls by land, water & air! The helicopter ride was amazing. I’ve been in several helicopters and this was by far the nicest. I absolutely would recommend this tour! The views from the Skytower, of not only the falls but the surrounding areas was amazing! Thank you for the lovely & unforgettable day!

        Great Jam-Packed Day Trip
        We had such a great tour with Ryder due to the small group size, his organization, and his knowledge base! He was timely, had fun stories, and friendly. He was also multi lingual which was very helpful for our mixed language group. We were traveling with a toddler in a stroller and found the tour accesible as well. Be prepared to get wet behind the falls and the boat tour! This is a great way to get a lot done in a little bit of time! We strongly recommend this tour and Ryder specifically.

        Our guide was personable and shared lots of interesting history and many facts about Niagara Falls. We had a great tour in spite of the cloudy weather.

        Night on Niagara small group tour with fireworks, boat and dinner
        A brilliant tour, so pleased I chose to do this tour of all those available. A really different experience seeing the falls at night. The fireworks over the falls were amazing too seeing them from the boat (check they are running when you go as last display 9th Oct). Food at Table Rock was good and stunning views of the falls. Getting to personally change the illumination colours of the falls was truly memorable! Our tour guide Manesh? was excellent and went out of his way to make our evening superb adding extra little touches to make the whole experience the best. Really recommend!

        Good visits- but too much at once!
        Your organization not ideal. Roughly 30 minutes on the Skylon Tower, 30 minutes walking behind the falls, and 30 minutes on the falls boat tour- so half the three hour tour length was spent walking in between. I would not do all three activities together in this way although the guide was informative.

        Good for those with little times, we did all highlight activities in half day. Highly recommended. We had the best time, lots of fun, lots of jaw droppings. Our tour guide, Edward, was super nice and knowledgeable. Don’t hesitate and book it 😊

        GREAT EXPERIENCE!
        Activities were fun. Tour guide was amazing, polite, professional, and knowledgeable. It was nice getting the facts and history about the area and the falls during transportation from one activity to the next. A part of the package was the ability to 'line jump' the main lines which was great and worth it. Great package for the price. Amazing experience for the family.

        Combo Sight seeing walking tour
        Excellent tour of all the sites I wanted to see at the falls. The guide would walk us to the front of the line hand off the tickets and meet us when we were done with each event. Beautiful view from the Skylon Tower, fun experience on the boat! since it was a gorgeous day, the 20 minute walk by the river was nice.

      If I could give this 0 stars I definitely would. If you get a tour guide named Justin just call them and ask for a refund. This guy made jokes about our state. He made fun of our whole group for wanting to see the falls. He mentioned it’s “running water” at minimum 30 times. He knew absolutely nothing about the falls and could tell us nothing about the area or facts about Niagara. He looked at the ground and spoke so softly when he did speak that no one could hear him. We were booked with one other family of 5 and we had 5. The other family had a man in a wheelchair and he tried to take us all down the escalators until I said dude what about that man in the wheelchair.. they were just as miserable as us and hated the whole experience and I’m sure they will be messaging the company. We heard tour guides around us telling jokes and telling facts about the falls and it made us even more upset about the amount of money we spent on this activity. 5 people and we all would give it 0 Stars..

      The Hornblower was awesome & our guide told us the perfect spot to stand instead of where everyone else was gathered. Carter is apparently fairly new so we were surprised about how many additional facts he gave us. He was awesome. He handled tricky construction traffic to keep us on schedule and gave us little tips for each location. The amount of time at each stop was perfect and he was very accommodating. There are many options to choose from in this area but this was an awesome one and so glad I chose it!

      This tour of Niagara Falls and the surrounding area was absolutely wonderful! Our tour guide, Hassan, was extremely knowledgeable of the area and its history. The touring van felt comfortable and safe as our group was driven around parts of the city. It was fantastic to be able to skip all the ticket lines to the attractions and ask questions along the way. We would recommend this experience to anyone! If you’re visiting this area and would like a personal and relaxed way to learn of this natural wonder, grab these tickets (and see if you can request Hassan). You’ll love it!

      Cheryl our tour guide was friendly and had great local knowledge. She collected us from our hotel and along with. two other couples, drove us around Niagara. The tour included the journey behind the falls, (in the tunnels under the lake); a visit up to the top of the Skylon tower; a narrated drive around the lake and finally the Hornblower boat ride ‘into the mist’. Don’t be fooled by the mist, you’ll get soaked! It was a great experience and well worth the money. A highly recommended four hour tour.

      Heidi was our tour guide and we were taken to attractions, skipped all the lines which was worth the cost of the tour alone. She was personable, great driver and if she didn’t know the answer to a question she found it. Also, doing the Skylon tour we recd return tickets to go back at night for lights and to see fireworks which start at at 10pm.
      All in all a terrific experience from pick up to delivery back to Howard Johnson’s hotel.

      We did the half day ‘best of Niagara’ tour as a small group, which meant that my party of 4 joined another group of 3 for the duration of the tour. We were collected from our hotel by Jimmy, our tour guide who was so informative!

      Our tour included the Skylon Tour, Behind the Falls & then the boat into the falls. Jimmy gave us ample time at each spot before collecting us and moving us to the next spot. He had all of the tickets so we didn’t queue for any activity, just handed us our tickets and we walked straight in!

      I booked through Get Your Guide, as we booked so far in advance and this way, it meant I could cancel last minute if we weren’t able to travel for any reason. But, it would have been slightly cheaper to book directly with See Sight, so if you don’t need the flexibility, book direct to save some cash :)

      Our tour guide, Judy (Judit) was terrific! We had researched the main experiences that we wanted from our first trip to Niagara Falls. This tour checked all the boxes! The three main perspectives of the falls… from the water, from behind and from high above! We would highly recommend See Sight Tours as they were organized, communicated well and accommodated a last minute date change due to weather. “Best of” is not an exaggeration.

      I've seen the falls from the American side, but nothing compares to seeing them from Canada.

      Getting around Niagra was made easy by the tour... getting us right to the front of each location and picking us up after. Although we had a car, it would have added hours (and dollars) to our day if we had to try and find parking for each attraction.

      The tour was less private than expected and to say there was a private guide is overstating the facts. We were met on time as expected, but at the first stop for the Tower visit the power was out. Essentially, after that the only thing we did was ride the boat out to the Falls with 100 other people. The company promised us and another couple a refund of unused fees. As of this morning that hasn’t happened, but it’s still early. Perhaps the credit has to process through Trip Advisor as that’s how we made our reservation. I don’t recommend this tour if you are staying at a hotel where you already have great views of the Falls.

      This isn't about the tour, as I ended up cancelling due to the terrible customer service.

      I originally booked this many months ago and had a couple of questions that were not adequately answered on the website. I called them. Each time I received a recorded message saying that they were unavailable and to leave my number to get called back. Did that 4 times over several days. No call back. None.

      Decided to spend my money elsewhere.

      This may very well be "the best tour," but they need to work on their customer service skills.
