Steven, our tour guide was wert knowledgeable and friendly. Fall looked raging yet beautiful. We got lucky with the weather. I am extremely satisfied with the tour and the experience, this tour is -must do -in my opinion. Thank you.

Very friendly and knowledgeable bilingual tour guide. We chose to walk to the bottom of the falls to get better views of the falls. 487 stairs I believe!! The view from different levels was worth it though.

The guide Salina was the best. She was friendly , knowledgeable and showed us all the various site with so much enthusiasm.

The bus AC wasn’t working on a very hot day. However, the driver (Celine) was excellent and made the experience worthwhile.

Amazing tour and tour bus driver/guide! Enjoyed every minute of it
