We were in Toronto for a business conference but had a free day to explore. We did not renta car so this was a great way to get to Niagara for the day. Mel was amazing, humble and humorously fantastic. If we had driven we would have been lost and wasting time. With Mel at the wheel we were dropped... More

As stated by a lot of other people you do get to see all the various sights but everything feels rushed. You are not allowed to eat on the bus. So when you finally get the Niagara on the Lake you spend your allotted time getting into the village and eating a take away meal. There is no time to... More

Didn't really know what to expect, but what a pleasant day. A very clean and climate comfortable bus. Mel sited facts through a good sound system, from the moment we left the curb, all the way out of Toronto, pointing out sites along the way. Pleasant soft music playing when he wasn't speaking. The stops were just long enough to... More

We recently booked this trip to Niagara Falls. We had a fantastic day. Mel was thoroughly entertaining with his deadpan humour. The only criticism is that we could have done with more time at Niagara on the Lake as we only had time for lunch and no time to look about (maybe by cutting out the wine tasting visit) On... More

We only had a few days in Toronto, so we scheduled the day trip from downtown Toronto to Niagara falls the 1st full day, a Friday. Picked up on lower Younge street at 7:30 am, we drove up to entertainment center to pick up the remaining travelers. Mel was was described in the other reviews, informative and easy going with...

This day trip was a great experience and probably the easiest way to see Niagara Falls when you don't have access to a car. The tour guide, Mel, was wonderful with his abundant knowledge of Toronto and the surrounding areas, constantly citing facts and figures about anything and everything. His deadpan delivery of jokes and one liners was also a... More

This is an all day tour, leaving Toronto at 8am and arriving back around 6pm. The drive to the falls is approx. 1hr 30mins. There is a stop at a few places along the river to do some quick sightseeing and take a few photos. Included in the price of the tour is a boat trip into the falls OR... More

A busy day, Mel arrived on time and we were off and arrived ahead of his scheduled time of 2hrs. Mel got us into all the good photo points plus he was funny/informative with his commentary. O/A very good but if being honest we would have liked a little longer at Niagara on the Lake, another 30-45mins would have been... More

It sounds like there are many tour outfits offering visits to the falls. We chose COF based on the reviews here and could not be happier. Professional and informative, it made for a great day of seeing the sights. Beware that this is an all day trip (7:30 AM to 6:00 PM for us), there is a lot of drive... More
