Had an absolutely fabulous few hours with Kevin, his recital and historical knowledge is just awesome. Stops along the way included the church in St Catherines, Niagara on the Lake historical places and crossing points, a half hour visit to the Inniskillen Winery for a little wine tasting (at our own cost), and various other points of interest on return to Niagara Falls. Anyone booking I am sure will enjoy. Just for info a fuel surcharge for pick up/drop off of $20 is now additional charge.

This was a great tour. Very informative. Lots of history here. Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and shared some amazing history with me. And we stopped at a great ice cream store by Erie Canal. I highly recommend this tour.

I'm glad the client enjoyed the tour and yes, we did not increase our rates but felt compelled to charge a pick-up flat fee of $20 per group (i.e $20 per 4pp =$5 ea.), very modest

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!!!

This tour was excellent in many ways. Kevin took us to a number of locations and explained how each place played a role in the underground system. We walked away with a very clear understanding of how the system helped enslaved people gain their freedom. Seeing and standing in places that were actually used by former slaves to escape to Canada gave the tour a powerful historical context and a greater sense of understanding as to their desperation and arduous journey.

Absolutely a captivating tour. Great information for any audience. The overall message was presented in an engaging and accessible way that truly just left us speechless and yearning for another hour of time. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a unique way to experience Niagara Falls’ history and have a culturally immersive experience learning about the underground railroad.

The tour with Kevin was awesome! His energy and passion for history was appreciated! The gems of knowledge with explanations were awesome. I also appreciate the stop at the museum! The tour is worth the money-the hotel pick-up, factual information and professionalism. You will not be disappointed!

A great experience. Something different and informative aside from the usual attractions of Niagara Falls. Very interesting for history buffs. Our guide was so genial and informative. He drove us all over the area, to bring together the story of the Underground RR and its major significance in Western NY. Try this for a new and educational experience.
