I did the trip to the Niagara Falls today and it was awesome. The tourguide picked everyone up in the morning and tried to make it comfortable for everyone. He explained some of his knowledge with us during the ride, which was pretty interesting. We had stops at the helicopter station, where we had the chance to fly with a helicopter above the Niagara Falls, the whirlpool, the American falls (the boat ride was there too), the Canadian falls and the small city Niagara-on-the-lake. We had free time at each station (about 1-1,5 hours except for the heli+ whirlpool station). I felt in such good hands with them and I would book a trip with them again definitely. It is a big recommendation from me!

Let me tell you what, I’ve never had so much of a good time. Not only did I get to see the gosh dang falls, I ALSO got a fantastic afternoon with my man Bernard. He had jokes. He had knowledge. He was getting down to business and keeping us on schedule, but giving us the best experience possible. I had an effervescent time. It surpassed all of my wildest expectations. I thought I was in for a trip to Niagara Falls. Great. But I also got a trip that was full of edutainment. Top notch. My compliments to the chef.

We had a very nice afternoon with Nic our guide, a very good aknowledge of the place and loves to share it with us. All activities were interesting by the different point of view of the falls and a well organisation of the time ! Thank you Alix & Clémence

This is as a spur of the moment tour and I am so glad I went. I truly was a wonderful trip.

Nic our tour guide was perfect. He was very knowledgeable and funny. Thank you!
