I was concerned when I saw this tour was a lot cheaper than others on offer, but would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone. The guide's knowledge was encyclopedic! delivered with a dry wit which particularly appealed to me. Excellent day gauranteed to educate and entertain. Bill Mc

The tour itself is pretty good. We met the bus downtown around 7:30 a.m. and made it down to the Niagara area by 9:15 a.m. First stop was the Skylon tower which is definitely worth it. You get a ticket included with your package for either the tower or the Maid of the Mist boat ride. I'd suggest to pay... More

We used this company to do a day trip from Toronto to Niagara Falls. I'm fairly well travelled, and this has to rank as the most bizarre day trip ever. The guide was frankly very odd; spoke in a thoroughly monotonous tone throughout the trip; and the "full day trip" ended with us back in downtown Toronto by 3pm. We... More

We are so pleased we booked this trip with Chariots of Fire. The tour guide, Melvin, was friendly and gave us a detailed and interesting narrative as we drove out of Toronto and headed towards the Falls, which included some history of Canada and Toronto, followed by information about the Falls. We arrived at the Skylon Tower just before 10am... More

I booked this tour for our family reunion-a diverse group where everyone wanted something different. This tour included different activities, such a the Maid of the Mist and wine tasting. My whole group was happy. Mel picked us up on time, and gave us a steady commentary about the history of the area, with humour. I found it excellent value,... More

Tour was excellent value costing $68 each including taxes. Coach was comfortable and commentary was very informative with some interesting stories. The package offers either Maid of the Mist or Skylon tower but you can do both for just an extra $12. As we arrived fairly early in the morning, there was still quite a lot of mist/fog in the...

Mel our driver/guide had a brilliant memory for facts, and delivered them all exactly at the right moment, interspersed with wit and comment to ensure we were "with him." Tour went to time, he was clear and audible, and on the journey home had the grace to let us sleep aswell! At $60 plus tax it's a bargain, leaving you... More

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Canada. The tour guide was very friendly and informative. He pointed out different landmarks throughout the entire ride from Downtown Toronto to Niagra Falls. Niagra Falls, was without a doubt, beautiful but Chariots of Fire made it an overall amazing experience. I would definitely recommend this tour over and over!

Firstly, the cost was $68 Cdn (tax included, not approx. $200 Cdn for two as claimed by another reviewer) which was a good deal considering the quality of the tour. Time was used efficiently and the guide provided a lot of interesting information and history, spiced up by excellent humour. We saw the awesome falls, went on the Maid-of-the-Mist (ticket... More
