The guide, Mel, should have his own TV show. His deadpan commentary sounds like Siri reading Wikipedia in Fargo mode. He delivers historical facts, statistics and humorous quips all in one sentence in a way that would put the rainman to shame. He is also a total gentleman and since our group was small he let us adapt the route... More

Based on all the positive reviews I decided to go with Chariots of Fire to see the falls - am I glad I did! There was only two other people the day I went so it felt more like a private tour. Mel was such a great guide, stopping for however long we wanted and always providing funny and interesting... More

Our tour with BG tours didn't fill so we were transferred to this group. Mel was our driver and guide. He had incredible knowledge and was considerate of everyone in our small group He didn't keep us anywhere just to make us spend tourist dollars and even gave us bread for ducks on the way home Thanks again for the...

I can't rate this this highly enough. Mel went out of his way to run the tour with just one person the day after new years day. After many years showing people the falls, he is a true local expert. A very funny and friendly tour guide and the service they provide is fantastic. The best way to see the... More

My boyfriend and I had such a fantastic day touring around with our leader Mel and three other travellers, who we got to know quickly on such a small group! The small group was great as it was a relaxed environment and we could decide how we wanted the day to pan out! The stops were fantastic, particularly the wine... More

Mel's dry wit really added to what was already an amazing trip of some of the amazing sights of Niagara Falls and the surrounding areas. His commitment was particularly commendable, coming out on a trip for only two due to the weather keeping many away, when other companies have shut up shop for the season!

We choose the Chariots because we would like to get in early to Niagara Falls, and we would like to be in a smaller group. We were 7 persons in total, and the mini van had seats for 14, which was perfect. Mel, the driver,gave us lot of information on the road to the Falls, and we were very satisfied... More

Mel was a fabulous tour guide, a true fountain of knowledge, his commentary throughout the day was really interesting. The stop offs were well thought through and packed so much into the day without feeling rushed. Excellent value for money and a great day out. Absolute must do if you are on holiday in Toronto.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Niagara Falls. Our pick up location (outside the Hard Rock Cafe opposite the Eaton Centre in Toronto) was very central and easy to get to on the subway. Our tour guide (Mel) was very knowledgeable, imparting information in a very dry, humourous manner. The trip to the falls was very comfortable in the new... More
