My partner and I spent 9 fantastic days in Toronto in June'11. We were working to a 'budget' and on our visit to the Tourist info centre on Dundas St West we saw some info on the Chariots Tour. The assistant kindly reserved 2 seats for us. Really good central location for pick up and drop off. The tour guide Melvin is worth his weight in gold!! What doesn't this guy know!! He even was talking about British history that we should know about!! After driving us there safely and dropping us off fist at the Skylon Tower for those of us who wished to go to 'the top o the tower' to take in the panaramic views. Personally think if i didnt go up the tower i wouldn't of really missed much, the actual Maid of the Mist Boat Ride is by far the best experience!! Besides the soaking (you do get to wear a very fashionable poncho!!) the experience if standing under the falls is incredible!! After the 1.5 hours spent at the boat Mel took us off to the rapids stopping off at Niagara on the Lake(absolutlely lovely little town) then off to the vineyards of the Canidian Ice Wine region!! Lovely tasting session had by all and the chance to purchase some at a VERY good price- about 60% cheaper than the Duty free prices at the airport! During the whole tour Mel keep us abreast with all the history of the region and at the end of the tour he presented us all with a box of maple cookies!! Really REALLY recommend this tour to anyone, well worth the $68 (inc tax). Ooh, but a word of caution to those who like to munch during their journey- Mel wont have anything eaten/drunk on the bus except water- he will mention this many times to all! Enjoy Toronto, its a fantastic, safe, friendly city and we will be back!
