It was a smooth pick up and ride! We felt very safe! The bus was comfortable and the Tourguide was awesome! We had 3 hours of free time at the Niagara Falls. We could have used a little more time, but we managed to see all that we wanted to see. We had after that a few more stops that were also beautiful! The wine tasting at the end was very delicious.

Small-group excursion (6 people) with enough time at the falls to follow a walk along the river and a boat ride (unforgettable even if very wet!). Return after lunch, stopping at each interesting spot.

The trip was great, the driver was very nice, the boat trip a must, you just get wet. The only thing you can complain about is the little time spent on the falls. Greetings from Leipzig

Pick up at various points in the city. Small group in a very comfortable mini bus. Very friendly and attentive guide.

We were only 6 people which was the good side. Nathan was very informative . Amazing experience.
