Joel was a fantastic and very accommodating guide. I booked and arranged everything last minute and we played by ear until I arrived since there was really bad weather (winter storm). He showed me the falls despite the freezing weather temp and also drove me around town.I got to taste the most amazing buffalo wings and hot sauce. He has... More

Thank you for the review. It is extremely rewarding to introduce people to this region--not just Niagara Falls, but Buffalo as well. You were very brave and came at the coldest time in recent memory. I will have warm memories of your visit and wish you the best of luck in your world travels. Joel More

We LOVED this tour! I have visited the Falls many times, but this tour gave us a whole new experience. Joel was great fun, and packed full of fascinating facts and stories. He had us laughing and enjoying ourselves all evening. I'd highly recommend this tour for first time visitors and locals alike.

I recently had a private walking tour with Joel and it was far better than I expected. I could not imagine seeing Niagara any other way. Joel is knowledgeable and entertaining without being rehearsed or boring. He genuinely loves the Niagara region and enjoys sharing the beauty with his guests. I felt like I spent the afternoon with a good... More

I've been to Niagara Falls before so I wasn't too sure of what to expect. I've never seen the fireworks display and I've lived in Buffalo most of my life. I was pleasantly surprised by this tour. Our tour guide, Joel, was humorous, knowledgeable, and incorporated his "followers" into the tour. He did his best to engage the minors in... More

We were very excited for our first trip to Niagara Falls. I booked the walking tour and to my surprise, we were the only ones in the tour that day. He was very informative and quite funny. We all enjoyed the conversations we had with him and the tour was wonderful. I would highly recommend taking the tour, but make... More

Since we had only one day at Niagara Fall's we found Joels information online only the evening before. He was prompt to reply and and provided clear instructions on the booking process and followed up by phone to make sure we were comfortable with the tour content and format and the rendezvous location. Since we were with our 2 young... More

We can't say enough good things about Joel! Somehow, we wound up being his only tourists for the day, so we lucked into a private tour. I thought it might be a little awkward, but hey, we're kind of awkward so it worked. Joel and my husband nerded out over the history and science surrounding the falls, plus Joel doubled... More

Joel is so full of information about the history of the Niagara Falls region and he presents it in a way that would keep even the most easily bored person interested. He is hilarious and engaging and clearly enjoys what he does... which makes it a great time for everyone. The fireworks at the end were the icing on the... More
