I cannot recommend this tour enough! Mel, our guide and driver, is extremely knowledgeable and delivers a fantastic tour with ongoing commentary that includes in-depth history, interesting trivia and perfectly timed witticisms. I traveled alone and felt comfortable the whole time. Mel picked us up and delivered us at the promised time. He had expert advice for each place, morning snacks, a water for each, and steered us away from time traps. I loved how personalized the tour was and how the group flowed under Mel's guidance. I highly recommend it for individuals and groups alike. Originally I had only purchased the day trip, but I ended up adding the boat tour and the Skylon observation tower visit and I recommend you do the same; it is 100% worth it.

Our guide Mel was very knowledgeable and very drole. It turned out that we were the only two customers of the day so we had an intimate and fact-filled trip by car to Niagara.

Mel was kind and considerate and his professional tour-guiding made our day - his commentary as full of character as content.

Being the only two on the tour, I am so glad that they went ahead and didn’t pull the pin given the competitive rates because we had such a great time!
The tour was well organised and well executed by our guide/driver Mel whom was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
The falls itself were great, being in March there were little crowds, giving us enough time and space to do what we wanted – downside was that the Hornblower boat cruise wasn’t in service.
Had a fantastic day – would highly recommend.

We were recommended this trip by a really helpful volunteer at the Union Station information desk and we're so pleased we managed to book it.

We were collected from 33 Yonge Street as promised and instantly our guide started to give us information about the day/tour.

There were only 4 of us on the trip today and it was brilliant from start to finish. The guide who told us he'd been guiding these tours for 20 years was a very safe driver, extremely knowledgeable about both Toronto city and each part of the country as we made our way to Niagara Falls. His historic knowledge was second to none and his sense of humour was just priceless!

We booked the Skylon Tower as part of the trip and it was so worth the small amount extra to get the views. This was our first stop of the day followed by the falls themselves, Niagara on the Lake and then finally the Diamond Vineyard.

The full day was just over 7.5 hours for a very competitive price ($101 pp) on an immaculate bus with free snacks, water, cookies and guide books. Additionally our guide gave us options throughout the day of how long we wanted to spend at each attraction - a nice touch.

Some people on TA get hung up on the fact that these are Christian tours and as a non-religious person this didn't matter to me and wasn't at all obvious throughout so please don't let that put you off - enjoy it for what it is.

A note to our guide: we all called you Bill through the day but after reading all the reviews on TA we think we are wrong and that you were actually called Mel - sorry about that!
