    Great trip. We saw a lot of things but didn't feel rushed. Mel is knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. (I guess knowledgeable is an understatment, he's a Niagara encyclopedia). Our group was only 17 people so we were able to get in and out of places easily. I spent the day with another solo traveler and so that was fun getting to know her as well.

    We came to Toronto on a whim and made it up as we went along really!! My Wife booked the platinum tour, after reading about it here. It was quite expensive but we thought that given the positive comments here it must be ok. It was way more than ok. Really lovely driver/guide. So charismatic, so intelligent, so courteous. His name is Sabi. He normally does the weekend tours. Collected outside the Fairmont York Hotel and after a couple.of additional hotel pick ups we had a 2 hour journey to the falls via the wine tasting at Niagara wine college. Really interesting stop off. Nice wines and got to know our fellow passengers. Then on to Niagra Falls where we all enjoyed a good quality 3 course meal overlooking the falls. Sensational. Then to the boat tour. Incredibly close to the base of the falls and drenched to the bone despite the ponchos supplied. Very exhilarating. Then grabbed a coffee and boarded the bus out to Niagra by the lake. What a charming little town, full of history and interesting shops. Had about an hour there. Then back onto the bus for the 2 hour journey back to Toronto. Couldn't recommend this experience enough or the company that made this happen. Or even the nice guy who took us all the way there and back and made it such a great day!! Thank you

    Day tour guide Micko F was really good and entertaining throughout the day and energetic till he dropped us back at CN Tower.
    Really thankful for him that he waited 15 mins more than what was intended for us at Niagara Falls as we were completing the other place at the same time.
    Really thankful for him.

    This was a nice experience to see Niagara Falls and Niagara on the lake. The town was so beautiful and it was such a beautiful day. Our host and bus driver was excellent. I really enjoyed the wine tasting. It is definitely an all day excursion, so plan on knowing you will be drop off very late in the evening. However, you do get your money’s worth and see and do a lot. The drive is self is almost two hours and if you are visiting it is best to get this tour! You see a lot and do a lot. Thank you!

    I will write this review based on what I would have liked to know prior to purchasing this tour.

    - The pickup is Not at YOUR hotel. They have 2 pick-up points in Toronto and one at the airport. This is misleading in the description. Patrick will however ensure that you are dropped off as close as possible to your hotel on the way back.

    - You will NOT have time to go on the Whirlpool Aero Cars. It read admission excluded, indicating that this could be purchased and conducted at the tour. This will be brought to the attention of Zoom Tours as it's disappointing from our point of view.

    - While you will have a lot of time at Niagara falls most activities will close or be closed after the initial boat ride is done not allowing for admission to other attractions on site. If you expected to arrive and do all of the activities then conduct a day tour.

    - You will have a good view of the falls and fireworks despite not joining the dinner buffet. Don't see this as a prerequisite. We ate at Fresh Burritos for $40/2 people instead of $50/pp for the buffét.

    - You stop at Maple Leaf Place which was not indicated on the itinerary. Here you get to have a maple syrup tasting and have time for purchasing souvenirs and syrup. Note; the syrup here even with the 10% discount voucher is more expensive than in regular supermarkets in Toronto. It's however an enjoyable activity and I decided to purchase items at the shop.

    Now for the review and experience of the tour:

    The guide Patrick was excellent and fun. He gave a good narration along the way down to the fall. He is an experienced tour guide with good knowledge and you notice that he does the job for the fun and not because he has to.

    The tour is fast-paced although not stressed. Listen up to Patrick's instructions and timetable as delays could cause stops not to be skipped to make good time.

    This tour was selected as it was the only option which we found viable for seeing the falls lit up at night including the fireworks. The reduced rating of 4/5 is NOT due to Patrick's efforts but due to the bulletins as mentioned above.

    I would recommend this tour as it gives you time to do things in Toronto before leaving at 1 PM and then enjoying a fully packed rest of the day/night.

    Exciting tour to Niagara Falls with a knowledgable tour guide(Kaleb) who told us interesting aspects about both Toronto and canadian history as well as Niagara. I recommend it especially to newcomers in Toronto.

    They are excellent! We had a wonderful experience, our guide knew the area, he provided us a very deep tour, and told us the stories of the Fall. We had a toddler with us, he was also very patient with her. In one word, I was so happy that we made it through AirLink.

    Started badly - bus was 1 hour late due to traffic, but the experience of Niagara was incredible. The afternoon could have been more productively spent. I loved the trip to Niagara on the Lake, could have easily passed on the wine tasting, but the unnecessary stops at gift/tat shops just meant the day got longer and longer. Many of these stops had not been mentioned until literally minutes before the stop.

    Haroon was kind and attentive. The hotel pick up and drop off was seamless. The hotel lunch buffet was pretty limited and basic, but tasty…and the view was amazing.

    Roy was exceptional. He picked us up in a lovely vehicle battling through the fog and downtown traffic to get to us.

    I am pretty sure there is nothing about the area that Roy does not know. He drove us to Niagra Falls and let us do whatever we wanted taking as long as we wanted.

    Roy then drove us to Niagra on The Lakes stopping several times in the way pointing out places of interest. We stopped at the lakes for lunch and then had a beer at The Angel Inn (the oldest pub in Canada).

    After lunch Roy whisked us of to a vineyard for a lovely hour wine tasting. We were then driven back to our hotel in supreme comfort.

    However King Tours forgot to buy our tickets for the Falls boat trip and this wasted about half an hour of our day whilst Roy tried to sort everything out.

    Would I used King Tours again ? I am honestly not sure unless they could guarantee that Roy would be my driver and Guide.

    A lovely day not least of which is because of Roy. He is a credit to King Tours

    Begining with Crystal: she's just great! She always made herself available to meet every request and to answer every question we may have. From arranging our airport's pickup to fully customize the experience (up to the point of selecting champagne's brand) and ending picking up us at the hotel to get to the airport, she made sure everything went perfect!

    Cheers to the whole driving crew:

    Sasi was so patient and kind waiting for us to clear customs and baggage at the airport, regardless of the delays.

    Walter is a smart, super educated person who knows about economics, politics, local culture and movies, who also kindly meet every request we had. We really enjoyed his company and smart talking.

    And at last but not least, Rickardo is an extremely funny, kind and happy guy who made us felt like we were at home all the time, even singing at the car! We wished we could have spent more time with him!

    We wil definitely definitely DEFINITELY repeat on our next visit!

    Have had a great day at Niagara Falls on a tour with Haroon from Airlink. He took time to explain to us all the best attractions and the history behind them.
