I came across Motherland Connextions while searching for things to do in Niagara Falls. I enjoy history tours but didn't know what to expect. Kevin was professional and personable from the start. Once we got in the van and started the drive he began to educate us on history that I had not studied in school or on my own. My husband and I enjoyed every minute of the tour. Kevin was an outstanding tour guide full of information and good conversation. We truly enjoyed ourselves and learned so much from him. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in history to take this tour with Kevin.

Kevin, our tour guide, picked our family up from our USA side hotel, took us through customs and brought us over for the tour. While you are riding Kevin is talking, offering tons of educational tidbits - as to be expected. We visited all the important Underground Railroad key sites, and we even met the great great great granddaughter of a former enslaved man who fled from South Caroline to St. Catherine’s - talk about emotional and spiritual. We visited Harriet Tubman’s church, which really could be a museum in its own right. Not only did Kevin feed our souls with the amazing stories of the Underground Railroad, he also gave us a tour of Niagara. Several of the sites on our list to visit, Kevin took us. He gave us tips for where to eat or not eat. This was our first part of the vaction and so glad it was, as we didnt need to pay for another tour. But the premise of the tour, Underground Railroad was just awesome! Job well done Kevin,

Mr. Kevin is very professional and really knowledgable about the struggles of the Underground Railroad Story. You can tell he's been doing it awhile, because he has so many inside of Canada connections. Please give Mr. Kevin a chance to take you down through history. Note: If possible, please inquire about touring British Methodist Episcopal Church!

One of the activities I planned was for this tour. In fact it was one of the main things I was looking forward to during my visit. However, unbeknownst to me, apparently as soon as I crossed the border from the U.S. I was no longer receiving cell service. As a result, the day of the tour, the operator who had been trying to reach me since the day before the tour was unable to (sigh). Meanwhile, the day of... I'm downstairs in the hotel lobby waiting for the tour bus and it wasn't until 15min later when they hadn't arrived and I decided to call them that I realized I had no cell service (DOH). I ended up using the hotel room phone, leaving them a message explaining the situation and waited for them to call - which they eventually did. Kevin (the owner/operator) couldn't have been more understanding. He provided all the information I'd need to procure a refund.

Apparently, the issue was he didn't have the location where to pick us up and neither of us realized that I wasn't receiving his calls. Side note: as soon as I left Canada and hit the airport (BUF) state's side waiting for my flight - all of these messages start showing up on my phone... sheesh, yeah, I know.

Anyway, I didn't take the tour. This review however is about the no fuss, professional and great customer service I received from the owner. We all know there are operators who will unfortunately make it difficult when the unforeseen occurs. Many thanks Kevin and yes I'm planning my return visit to take that tour.

The Niagara Falls Canada Underground Railroad Heritage Tour sounded like a great idea for us, given our interest in history and this issue.
We called twice and held for over 25 minutes only to have the call disconnected before speaking to a customer service representative.
We thought about booking it online, but given the poor customer service via phone, thought the better of it.

So sorry to hear about the bad experience with trip advisor. We have no control over that. If you could have hung in there it would have been worth it. You can always call us direct or off our web site

We booked this because we have an interest in history but we learned a ton on this tour! We were the only two people on our tour so we really got a great personal experience! This tour does have a lot of driving, but we learned so much and our guide had such wonderful information that the drives were very quick. We weren't able to go inside the Harriet Tubman church because the people were unavailable, but it was still great to see. We were also able to visit a winery at Niagara on the Lake, and learn more about the area.

We had two days remaining in Ontario and really wanted to go on this tour. All on line bookings were full but I called Motherland Connections and left a message anyway. Kevin returned my call and agreed to take four of us on the tour from 3-6 that day. He arrived at our hotel at 2:45 in full period costume and was a walking and talking book of knowledge of not only the Underground Railroad but took us back to Africa for full understanding of Our history. My favorite part of the tour was the opportunity to meet the descendants of the Freedom Seekers at Salem Chapel. Priceless! In addition to Underground tour we visited a winery, Niagara Falls and general points of history in the area. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the Underground Railroad. Thanks again Kevin.

This tour, which covers the route of the escaped slave entering New York,seeking freedom, was worth every minute and every penny. The tour guide, Kevin, picked us up at our hotel in a 15 passenger van. He took us to several historical areas along the route of the slaves seeking freedom. He was knowledgeable and thorough, answering questions with ease. He ended the tour with a trip to the Falls and explained how and where the slaves crossed into Canada. It was a half day tour, very informative. Highly recommended.

I usually don't care for tours, but the Underground Railroad topic was compelling. Kevin was outstanding! Not only is he charming and warm, but he is an absolute encyclopedia on the topic of slavery in connection with the Niagara Falls area. He had us engaged and learning in the most captivating 3 hours I could imagine!

This was a tremendous experience! Kevin Cottrell, the brother who facilitated our tour, is a master teacher, historic interprerer and griot!

During our 3 hour excursion, we were entertained, enlightened and educated. If you are ever in the Niagara Falls area, don't settle for just the natural wonder of the Falls but connect to the extraordinary history of survival and freedom with Kevin's first person interpretive journey into history!!! It will be well worth the time and effort. We literally got to be in the same space our enslaved brothers and sisters were in! It was overwhelming and significant! Highly recommended!!!
