The tour I went on with my mom was fabulous. The bus picked us up and dropped us off at the campground we were staying at. Debbie (our tour guide) was fabulous! She was very nice to call ahead of time to confirm our pickup location and to warn us that she was 15 minutes out. Debbie was very knowledgeable about the falls and surrounding area and extremely well organized. She was able to corral all 15+ of us at each tourist location (being very accommodating for wheelchair occupants); giving us plenty of time to look around, eat lunch, buy things and get plenty of pictures, but also keeping us on track to get to the next item on the itinerary. The Maid of the Mist and the Cave of the Winds were the absolute highlights of the tour. From down in those perspectives you really get a sense of how large and how much water and power these falls actually have. I quite enjoyed the excitement of getting in the provided poncho and being pelted with the mists and droplets form the falls; Awesomely Fun!!! It may have been a four hour tour but the time really flew buy with all that we got to do and see. I would definitely recommend anyone to become one of Debbie's Daredevils and take this tour!

Amazing tour of Niagara Falls, the Cave of the Winds and the Power Plant!! I typically like to wonder on my own when I take a new adventure but I'm SO glad I took this guided tour. I learned so much from Debbie Carlson about the history of the falls and had a chance to see the amazing views of Niagara Fall from Goat Island, Luna Island and travelled to the first electric power plant. It was so worth it and I recommend anyone that travels to this area take this amazing tour. I was with "Debbie's Daredevils" and she was so professional, informative, friendly and a fabulous tour guide!!! I stayed close to The Falls and went at night to see the amazing lights and went to view the falls each day and they looked more spectacular every day with the the sun and night skies, truly a marvel. I also loved that Deb was bi-lingual, very impressive! I had an amazing time, something I will always treasure!

My daughters and I had the privilege of attending this tour with the group, “Larry’s Legends”. Larry, the tour guide, did an amazing job showing us Niagara Falls and the history behind everything. He was very organized and made the day easier by planning out each excursion while giving us enough time to enjoy ourselves. In between the different sites, Larry would entertain us with jokes and stories to keep the energy up and the excitement alive. We would recommend anyone to take this tour as we felt we got to see more of Niagara with the help of Larry without the extra stress of being a tourist.

I paid $129 each for family of 5 plus all the taxes, little I know and found out that we can buy it on our own for 1/2 of the price. Cave of the winds it’s only $19 on the park and maid of the midst is $25. This is the only
Highlights that they took us, and the whirlpool too which was given only 15 mins. to look at it. Everything was in hurry given so little time, we can not even stop to eat. There’s no really historic places that’s interesting to what driver shows- ( it’s a HE )the abandoned turtle building. I didn’t enjoy coz everything was such a rush, at the end we told him we’re just going to walk. To be completely HONEST I don’t recommend the tour you could buy it yourself at the park for way cheaper and on your own time esp if you have kids. Whatever on the package it’s unreal mostly just driving you around the streets. Ah well charge to experienced I guess.

Larry was an amazing guide. The tour around the Niagara Falls area was about 4 hours, which was worth the price! In addition he showed us a few extra sight seeing stops along the way. Larry explanation of the history of the area was very detailed and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. We certainly enjoyed the time spent under Larry's guidance and highly recommend all those tourists who are considering visiting the Falls.

The passion and knowledge, love and dedication of our tour guide was the link for having all the participants engaged with Niagara Falls!! Mr. Larry Soos was one of the more instructed guide tours I ever met. Every detail provided, every joke, every history or legend told about Niagara was shared with passion for the job and for the site. That I really like, Mr. Larry Soos loved for his job. When I got back, I checked over the internet some of the stories and facts we were told during the tour, and became amazed for the opportunity I had to know one of the most interesting places I every visited. The tour was well designed, organized and conducted. It is 100% worth the value and definitely will share my experience and recommend to family and friends visiting Niagara Falls. One more time Mr. Larry, THANKS!!

Our family of 4 (3 adults/1 teen) booked this tour through the activities desk at our hotel. The bus arrived right on time to pick us up right in front of the hotel (Sheraton/NY). Tammy the tour guide handed out lanyards to everyone and assigned each family a number. This number was used multiple times during the tour for roll call purposes. We began the tour with a trip to the Whirlpool, we were able to get out and explore for about 15 mins. From there we headed to the falls riding Maid of the Midst first. After that we went up the Observation Tower for some amazing photo ops. From there we quickly made our way to Cave of the Winds. After that we got back in the bus and headed to a food truck called The Silo to grab dinner (we did the 5:30pm tour). Got food to go then headed to Goat Island to watch the fireworks at 10:10. Boarded back on the bus after fireworks and was drove back to our hotel.

The bus driver Steve stayed on the bus the entire time so you could safely leave your items on the bus anytime we didn't want to take them with you. The bus was super comfortable. The cost of tour is definitely more than buying these things individually but its worth it to not have to do any of the work or drive anywhere.

Definitely recommend this tour. There were people of all ages and sizes an everyone had an excellent time.

The tour guide Barbara was great. The pick up in the morning was on time. She is knowledgeable of the history of the Falls, very outgoing, and very serviceable. As an example, She offers to take pictures with the falls in the back ground and gives stories about the area with a little humor.
As for the the value of the tour, I would say it is reasonable, it covers the cost of parking, the entrance for the 2 main attractions: Cave of the Winds and Mist of the Maid, and driving. There is traffic to enter the state park, with the tour you avoid it. If you had to come to visit, parking is not free; you my pay between $10.00 - 20.00 dollar to park. I would recommend the tour, it gives you a idea of the area and hopefully if you get Barbara, she will advise of other sites available to visit during your stay in Ni-a-gara. I would suggest to book the tour as soon as to arrive, especially if visiting during a holiday weekend. Our bus was full. Once you complete the tour, you can plan your next Niagara activities with the information that your tour guide provides. My husband and I live in Florida and this is our first tour ever taken and now as Grayline as an example, I know what to expect if visiting other popular cities. Another first, is that this is my first review ever. Barbara was great and I sincerely appreciated her service and the reason for actually taking the time to provide a review of the tour. I hope this gives any visitor some insight to Niagara Falls if you're considering it to be your next vacation in the near future.

We had a great experience with Vic as our tour guide. We came here four years ago and only saw half of the scenery and history that Vic showed us in five hours. We learned more about the falls in a way that was informative and entertaining. Vic was well organized and had a great disposition, especially when getting everyone to show up at our meeting places along the way. This was well worth the money and I would recommend this tour to anyone that wanted to see and get the most out of their vacation at Niagara Falls.

This was so manageable when someone else is directing the tour. He knew where to go, he was very knowledgeable, told stories, gathered us up, and made it a great time. Larry Soos was our guide I would definitely highly recommend folks ask for him
