Kevin was an awesome tour guide. His knowledge and humor were perfect. We had a great time and learned a lot about the history in our own backyard!! Would recommend this tour 100%

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.
