My teenaged daughter and I had one of the best days together on this tour. Mel was a complete treasure of information and extremely knowledgeable about all of the attractions and the route. We were able to see all of the attractions and had quite a few stops to take pictures. All in all this was a great choice for... More

I have taken many tours in the last few years, but this was the best group tour ever. Melvin, our driver and guide, was entertaining, informative, organized, very polite and calm, managing to move things along without making us feel rushed. He was also very thoughtful in providing some snacks and water along the way, leaving us with a complimentary... More

Wow,what a full day of all the wonderful sights of Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake! It's an early start to avoid traffic and beat some of the queues at the Niagara attractions.Traffic was helped by the high occupancy lane in force on the highway ahead of the PanAm Games. So to the tour it's a full on day... More

My son arranged this trip for us to celebrate my 60th birthday, but did not mention it on the trip! Our driver and guide, Mel, was excellent, so very knowledgeable and had a dry sense of humour. He knew the perfect places. to stop to take pictures on route. The boat at Niagara Falls was great fun too! Mel took... More

I was really looking forward to this tour and I was really annoyed and uncomfortable all day. The driver was late, so whilst waiting I decided to make a last minute dash to the toilet as I knew there were none on board. I got back to find everyone on board and the driver (mel) rushing me on board. He... More

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We do try to be on time for the pick ups. The highway was indeed closed that morning due to a major accident. The driver took the most efficient alternate route until the highway was open again. Since we do usually have people that have chosen our tour specifically because they need to be... More

I could have rented a car and driven my family from Toronto to see the falls, but I am so glad that I went with COF instead. I was in Toronto on biuiness and only had one day for sightseeing. Mel picked us up on time at 7:30 AM and the van was comfortable for the 2 hour drive to... More

What an incredible day out I had. This tour was amazing and worth every penny you pay. You get comments about the city the whole way out, you go up the tower, go to a look out, get the boat, stop at other places like the whirlpool, then Niagara at the lake, wine tasting and home. It is so well... More

I found out about Chariots of Fire through my internet search on the Niagara Falls tour. I don't normally like to join tours as I always feel that it is too "touristy" but since the location is quite far from where I stayed - I definitely need one. I took the complete tour on my visit (basic tour + Skylon... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
