The tour itself was very good, but not well suited to a rainy day such as we had. The bus wasn't particularly great for taking pictures as we saw various sites, and the only stop was at the falls - so much of what was seen was difficult to photograph. I personally wasn't comfortable walking in the rain on the wooden boardwalk around the falls. Of course, the views of the falls were the most important and best part of the tour in my opinion, and it's just a shame we had bad weather for it. My biggest problem with all of the Get Your Guide activities is they don't provide enough detailed info to enable you to find your guide, e.g., this trip indicated the guide would be in period dress, and our guide was in a shirt and trousers - not what I would consider period. I didn't care except that we walked around in the rain for quite a while looking for the appropriate bus.
