    A very fun (and a little wet) experience
    Kathleen_P, Oct 2022
    The boat we were on gets really close to the falls. The scenery and experience were great. Our walking guide was informative and funny. We could barely hear the guide on the boat.

    Thank you so much for touring with us!
    Niagra Falls a must
    Kevin_L, Oct 2022
    The falls is some experience a must is the boat trip to the fall to feel the power of nature. Get right up close with the falls the power of water.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    I could not agree with you any more! Getting that close to the power of the falls is so special!
    I received a call to...
    Judi_H, Oct 2022
    I received a call to confirm my appointment. I told the female that my reservation was for 10/29 and not 10/22. She said she would change it; but she didn’t. Hence I just lost over $160 AND had to schedule through another website for next week.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Hello Judi, I'm sorry you are seemingly frustrated. According to our system we did change your reservation as you requested on 10/21 and still have your party booked for Saturday, 10/29. Please call our customer service at 833-868-7632 with any other questions you might have.
    In the belly of the beast

    Being in the middle of the falls was n exhilarating experience that eveyone should experience at least once in their lifetime.

    Maid of the mist sounds...
    Peggy_E, Sept 2022
    Maid of the mist sounds of the falls. Wet and wild. Honeymoon was something to remember. Guide (Billy) was great.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Happy honeymoon! What a great place to come to to celebrate! And thank you for allowing us to be a part of the celebration!
    A pleasant way to see Niagara falls
    Manish_T, Sept 2022
    I booked with Viator through Adventure tour. The price with Viator is quite high as they have tie up with Adventure tour compared to if you book directly the Maid of the Mist boat ride at the counter. We had Rob as our guide of adventure tour who was very cooperative and provided great information.
    Response from Host, Oct 2022
    Thank you so much for the positive review! To address your comment on the price, the boat tour alone is less expensive, what you paid for extra was the walking tour, guide AND the boat ride. Thank you!
    Great experience!
    Teressa_L, Sept 2022
    Very informative guide. Very easy to make reservations. Very enjoyable excursion. Would definitely do it again.
    Response from Host, Sept 2022
    Excellent to hear you had such a great experience!
    Mary_E, Sept 2022
    Nate, our tour guide, was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about the area, and very kind. My dad ended up not feeling well towards the end, and the staff was very helpful. Enjoyable overall.
    Response from Host, Sept 2022
    Thank you so much for the kind words and for touring with us! Come again soon!
    Wet, wild, and amazing!!
    jsato, Sept 2022
    The history Zach gave us was great. Special bonus was the waterproof carrier for our phones!!! No one else had them.
    Response from Host, Sept 2022
    Thank you for the review! We just started the lanyards for the phones this season and will definitely be keeping them as they have gotten so much great feedback!

    Awesome adventure! They did a great job of getting us right up to the Falls. What an experience. And the tour guides are great telling the facts and stories of the Falls.
    Response from Host, Sept 2022
    Thank you so much, Mary!
    Laurie_C, Sept 2022
    Awesome experience. First time on the American side. Amazing the force of the water. Can’t wait to return.
    Response from Host, Sept 2022
    Excellent to hear! We look forward to your return as well!
    We were unable to go...
    Ronald_B, Aug 2022
    We were unable to go since the directions to meet at the Hard Rock were so in clear and then we were sent to the waterfall to catch the boat. When called by the tour guide we were unable to get back to the shard rock. It would be nice if you stated where at the HardRock to meet. Ask 10 different police and employees and that is how we ended up down at the waterfall.
    Must take this tour as part of Niagara Falls visit
    Ruth_J, Aug 2022
    Walking tour was great! Helps to have a guide to learn the history of the falls. Love the US side of Niagara Falls and boat ride best way to see all of the falls without going into Canada.
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    Thank you, Ruth! We are so glad that you enjoyed the tour!
    Let's go again!
    Sandi_C, Aug 2022
    Darin (our guide) was great. The boat ride was wonderful. The poncho kept everything under it dry. Face, hair, arms, shoes, and lower legs get wet not being under the poncho or covered very well, but that is expected. The stories and history tidbits Darin shared are interesting and engaging. Had a blast.
    Response from Host, Aug 2022
    We are so glad that you had a blast (literally)! Darin will be thrilled that you enjoyed the day!
