“Beautiful - worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We took the bus tour from Toronto - about 1.5 hour ride. The falls are breathtaking. Maid of the Mist is worth the money. Could have done without some of the other stops on the tour - especially the special stop for trinket (a.k.a. junk) purchases. Our tour guide/driver, Alex was great though!

“unmissable and very good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I'm assuming, from the other reviews, that the tour we took was the same as theirs. Ours started with a pick up at the hotel, then we drove to Niagara, with a constant commentary by our driver John, who was amazingly well-informed about everything Canadian. The bus stopped for a brief look downriver of the falls and to stretch our legs.When we got to the Falls we had time to walk along to see the US waterfall- impressive, but nothing like the Canadian side. Then a very good buffet lunch was provided, followed by the Maid of the Mist boat trip, which was quite unforgettable and awe-inspiring. After that, we were driven round what the driver accurately called the tacky parts of Niagara, and then we drove to Niagara on the Lake, which is a prettily preserved little tourist town, not unlike Concord, Mass., where you can walk about and have tea or ice-cream. Finally we were taken to a winery, where we tasted Canadian wines, particularly their ice-wine, which they are deservedly proud of. There was an opportunity there to buy the wines and other grape products. Then we were driven back to our hotels by about 7pm. It was a most enjoyable day, including so much more than we'd expected. Thoroughly recommended.

“Niagara Falls, Toronto, Canada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

A visit to Niagara Falls should not be missed. It is a fantastic view from the Canadian side since the Falls are seen entirely. From the American side (Niagara Falls, New York) you see the Falls sideways. Also, a close range of the Falls can be seen on a boat trip in the Maid of Mist. You will get wet, but yellow raincoats are supplied to the women and black raincoats to men, unless colors have been changed.
