Joel couldn't have been a better tour guide for my family, who normally wouldn't want to pay attention during a tour. Im 20, and my brother is 8 and we both got a kick out of Joel's humor- He was able to keep his attention the entire time while still being very informative about the history of Niagara. I would...

Our guide-Joel was funny & informative. We went on the 2 hour walking tour & ended with watching fireworks display. Joel incorporated our kids in illustrating facts about how the falls were formed. Fun time & we highly recommend this tour. Thanks Joel!

My 18 year old son (nicknamed Dr. McDreamy by Joel because he looks like a young Patrick Dempsey) and I enjoyed this tour very much! It was a good balance of history, humor and attractions. It's nice that Joel gets the tickets for the Maiden of Mist and Cave of the Winds and takes care of the details :) I... More

We ended up touring with Joel as the American portion of our Niagara Falls tour and we are so glad our paths crossed! Joel is so smart and knows everything you need to know about the area and as a bonus is funny and kept us smiling the whole time! Touring with Joel is a must if you are touring... More

Not only interesting and informative, but Joel had us laughing throughout the tour as well as learning. One of the great things was that a lot of the information was driven by participants' questions. Joel told us a lot of interesting history about Nicola Tesla because someone asked. Even for a native of the area, I learned new things about... More

Thank you for your kind words. The Tesla question was a plant...I always have a fake person on the tour to ask "improvised" questions that make me look knowledgeable. Sincerely, thank you for taking the time to write a review, it makes a big difference for me. Joel More

We had a wonderful time on our walking tour with Joel. He has a great memory and a real knack for the history of the area. He is very accommodating while on the tour...recommending pictures, stops, etc. He has an endless supply of corny jokes with some sarcasm thrown in the mix. We saw many of the top sights in... More

Dear Nebraska people, my wife would challenge you on the comment that I have a good memory! I think I remember only the trivial things. Still I'm glad those appealed to you. I sincerely hope you had a safe journey home. Joel More

We had a great time on this walking tour. Something different to do on a Sunday night in the summer. Great way to experience the falls even if you've been there a bunch of times. Joel was very knowledgeable about the area and its history. Good for all ages for those who can walk around for 2 hours. Good for... More

Thanks Joel for the terrific tour. We teamed up with James on 28 June for your walking tour. It was a great way to learn about the history of the falls. Your light hearted approach in telling the story, made it very intriguing. You kept the attention of our 12 and 15 year old sons for 3 hours. You can... More

Joel is a great guide. He was very knowledgeable about Niagara and was very entertaining. Even after returning to Malaysia, my kids (age 16, 13 and 10) still remember his stories. I thoroughly enjoy the tour and highly recommend it

Just finished the tour today and it was great. Joel is incredibly knowledgeable about Niagara Falls, specifically, as well as the history behind the park and the indigenous Native Americans as a whole. He had a good sense of humor, accommodated everyone's needs, and shared lots of details that other groups probably don't know. Just be forewarned, it is a... More
