        Cold but enjoyable
        Read carefully - it starts in Toronto but we were accommodated with a pick up in Niagara - depending on time of year it makes a difference as to what sights you see - dinner was fair

        A good time
        I was disappointed at first that we would not be doing the boat tour. I was really looking forward to that. But overall it was a good use of 10 hours and I met a few new friends.

        Great time with Gary from Zoom Tours
        Had a great time with Gary as my tour guide! He picked me up at my hotel in Toronto and we picked up the rest of the people at Niagara Falls. The Falls were spectacular. Canada side is definitely the way to go. We got to check out several other cool spots in the area and even tasted maple syrup. Lunch was good and we got a nice view of the Falls while we ate. All in all, it was a good time and worth it. Would recommend.

        We were really disappointed with them. Not only that they were 45 minutes late. The tour did not deliver as it was explained on the website.

        Even though the boat was not running, our tour guide was the best! Had an awesome time. We are from California and visited the falls for the First Time.

        Not the Best Value for the Cost
        I booked with zoom tours through third party provider getyourguide. In the attached screenshot on the booking site a boat tour is included, however, was not delivered. In an act of bad faith, zoom tours fails to mention that boat tours are not available in the winter time. This is dishonest and takes advantage of consumer trust. The tour guide was jolly but made polarizing statements regarding politics and religion as well as presenting as facts history that is scientifically false. Several times he lamented the decrease in numbers of people attending church as a practicing Christian. He also minimized the presence of indigenous people in the Niagara region, saying they arrived 2000 years ago, when the signage in the Journey of the Falls lobby dates their presence since before the formation of the falls 12000 years ago. He imitated some Indian accents while telling a story. When he announced how glad he was that Canada had no problem with illegal Mexican immigrants trying to cross the border, the Mexican mother and daughter in the front seat looked clearly uncomfortable. The tour guide is a quirky and hardworking older gentleman, but his humor may not be to everyone's taste. If you want to be driven around on a time constraint to visit the Journey Behind the Falls (instead of the advertised boat tour), taste some maple syrup, and visit the quaint little Niagara-on-the-lake town, this trip may be worth it. However, as tourists without mobility issues, we would have preferred more free time, as well as access to the more family friendly Clifton Hills Niagara Falls Attractions. Next time we visit, we would purchase the go train ticket available for $17.79 and spend the day exploring Niagara Falls at a more leisurely pace and with more attention to our personal points of interest.

        Breathtaking niagra!
        Gary our guide was fantastic. Really informative and easy going guy. The views of niagra both day and night were amazing. Our dinner buffet in the evening was delicious, so much to choose. Gary made sure we had a window view of niagra too. Loved niagra on the lake, what a lovely little village. The fireworks at the end were spectacular. Fantastic trip.

        Great day out - great guide Johnny
        We were a group of 11 from Australia and didn't have much time in Toronto. We booked this the day before - the agent was so helpful. As we were such a big group the bus came to our accommodation to get us first. Johnny was our guide and he was awesome - he really made the trip. Highly recommend this if you are short for time. We saw so much and Johnny was so knowledgeable, funny and entertaining!!

        Day tour gone very wrong, unprofessional company and not about customer satisfaction.
        Our group tour turned into a private tour that went very wrong. The driver stated he was supposed to open the doors for us but wanted to know if we minded that he didn’t do that. Our tour guide Johni then needed to hurry back to Toronto for another tour, our tour was rushed and at the end he gave us a parking pass to park close to the boat tour and instead of taking us and waiting as he was supposed to he gave us this pass and made it sound like a great help he was until we found out from Sheraton that the pass is only for tour busses and that if we parked their we could be fined and have our car towed. I reached out to management to inform them of our bad experience and after a run around and constant following up, they finally decided to give us $50 back as if that was sufficient enough for the trouble and inconvenience that this company left us with on our vacation. Very disappointing and would not recommend this company tour for anyone.

        Very good. The sights can’t be spoiled
        Good tour. Late confirmation of hotel pickup done only one afternoon before departure. The lunch offered, frankly, is bad with an emphasis only on quantity not quality and next to nothing for vegetarians. Flies hovered over the dessert section. Our guide, Gary was, however, outstanding. His humour and the information he gave and his friendliness gives him 5 stars or ten out of ten. Gary is outstanding as a guide

        Great tour to see all the great Niagara sites!
        Great time visiting all the sites. Beautiful day with partially cloudy skies made for great photos. Friendly guide provided great information and bypassed all the ticket lines and showed us all the great photo locations. Enjoyable day. We signed up for the day/evening cruise/dinner tour but subsequently notified that that tour was full. We ended up switching to a day/lunch tour. Not what we originally wanted but still a great day.

      The Niagara Falls are a sight to see. Nobody tells you that you need to walk down a 190 foot ramp that twisted and turned down to the Niagara River below. The boat ride was spectacular as shown in the photographs. However, there is no way to go back up the ramp with disabilities. We finally had to convince someone to use a golf cart to get us back to the top. Then we had to walk around the park to get back to the bus. What a nightmare. It’s not cool that the city of Niagara doesn’t have capability for disabled people.

      We had such an amazing experience! From the tour to our tour guide Fabio. He knew everything, was kind and took some amazing pictures of us. Fabio made us feel welcomed and warm on a cold day. I really enjoyed the tour specially with Fabio. I really can’t say enough but how amazing he was. He made the tour fun. He showed us places that were on the way to Niagara Falls that no other tour would. If you get the chance to have Fabio as your tour guide, best believe you will have the best experience!!! Here are some pictures Fabio took of us. Beside a tour guide he is good at taking pictures. he can even be your photographer. Take care of Fabio because this man works extended hours and made the tour group feel comfortable.

      This tour was a wonderful way to see all Niagara Falls has to offer without the stress of not knowing your way around. Our tour guide Gary was great. We went to Niagara Falls, the whirlpool, the Floral Clock, drove around the city, had lunch at the Sheraton and even made a pit stop at a Maple shop for syrup and fudge tastings. Highly recommend!

      My husband and I were part of a day group tour and were greeted warmly by Fabio, who is the driver AND also our fantastic tour guide! :)

      The trip was smoothly planned and we definitely recommend the whole package if you are up for an adventure and memorable experience!
      As for Fabio, we couldn't thank him enough for being so informative and we really liked how straightforward he is with instructions.

      We will definitely book with the same tour company when we come back to Ontario w/ family & friends and would recommend it highly.

      John was an amazing tour guide. He went way above and beyond what I feel a tour of Guide should do. If you decide to book a tour in Niagara falls, request zoom and John if possible. Talks a little fast but the fact that he was born and raised there knows a lot of little things that you probably wouldn't find from a normal tour guide. His knowledge of the history of that area is also very interesting. I learned a lot and had a great time on the tour, especially with the group that was with us. Took up group photo together. So like I said choose zoom request John. Thanks for the great tour John. Bye,

      We had the best day with our guide Fabio, it was so hard to say good bye. What a gem! We got picked up in Toronto and had the best day and evening in Niagara with a walk behind the falls, boat ride, we visited the cutest little marked and Fabio spread his wisdom and wittiness the whole trip. Thank you, Fabio!

      The boat trip, journey behind the falls and whirlpools were amazing. The views were stunning and I got absolutely soaked on the boat, but it was totally worth it to be that close to the falls! There was a good selection of food at lunch.

      Our tour guide Gary was friendly, informative, shared interesting knowledge and truly made the trip one to remember. Would definitely recommend!

      Johnny was great! His pacing of the trip was excellent. We’d booked behind the falls experience, but decided to skip it - both due to time and the completeness of the boat trip. One thing I would pass on is lunch at the Sheraton.

      Hi K9558V, Thank you for your feedback and for choosing Zoom Tours. We are glad that you enjoyed your tour with Johnny, he really is great and loves what he does at Zoom Tours. We are glad your parents had a great time. Hope to see you again in the future. Lunch at Sheraton Fallsview is great experience, by pass on lunch? However, I respect your opinion, thank you for your amazing review. Best regards, Zoom Tours

      Our driver,/tour guide Johnny was awesome! He was very funny and engaging the entire day which made the drive enjoyable. He also treated us like VIPs throughout the whole day. He was on time, very professional, and even got our boat tickets for us so we didn’t have to wait in line. The day was organized The food was great, and the company was even better. Being a tour guide myself, I would definitely recommend and would book again.
