Very good way to get a glimpse of the falls in a day while still having the evening to enjoy yourself in Toronto. That said, I wouldn't mind a little more time being able to hang around the amusement area of the falls and Niagara on the Lake. Always seemed like there wasn't enough time to take everything in. The guide was nice and pretty laid back, though I did have a little trouble understanding him through his accent.

Driver was knowledgeable and friendly. I would have preferred more time in Niagara-by-the-Lake and less in Niagara. This time of year there are no lines for boat ride. The small town wasn’t crowded - the lunch spot, Tide & Vine, had great chowder and lobster roll. I would not choose the wine tasting either. It was a tasting in their retail space.

Lots of information given by our lovely guide who really looked after us. The trip to Niagara Falls gave plenty of time to take it all in. The hour at Niagara on the Lake village was a bit too short, and the wine tasting was just that- tasting some wine at a wine factory’s fancy sales room. Not an actual wine tour of the vineyard, wine process etc. Altogether a very pleasant day trip that I’d recommend to anyone visiting the area.
