Absolutely breathtakingly...
Michael_W, Mar 2023
Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful and informative. Our guide, Briana was a pleasure and answered all of our questions.
Our tour guide, Brianna,...
Rayven_K, Jan 2023
Our tour guide, Brianna, was very knowledgeable about the state park and then things in it but was limited in where she could take us based on the renovations/construction in certain areas of the park. It's mid January now so the nightlife is so eerily quiet and calm but great for our small group to have the most clear space to take pictures and wander a bit more. Great communication, timeliness, and ease of scheduling a tour time. If you need a bit of guidance on where to go and what to look for, this tour is a great option.
It was nice walking...
Samuel_Z, Nov 2022
It was nice walking around the falls and the tour guide showing us the different views of the falls. I was a little sad about not being able to go on a boat when I booked a walking and boat tour.
See beautiful Falls with color, and learn from a fascinating guide!
Kathy, Oct 2022
I strongly recommend this tour for single women especially if you want to see the falls at night and don’t want to go solo. The Falls and the Park are completely different at night and very beautiful with the gorgeous colored lights. What I also loved about this tour was our guide Cherie. She is a historian, and she’s so interesting! Her knowledge of the area is incredible. She brought Niagara Falls to life by talking about the people in its history, the struggles of those trying to escape slavery and the physical changes over the years of the area. It was so unlike any tour I’ve ever taken, and I just found her information fascinating. Cherie has inspired me to do some research of my own and to return and see Buffalo as well when I have more time. Thanks Cherie for an enlightening, engaging tour! Loved it!!!

Seeing the falls at night was breathtaking. It's beautiful during the day but at night was just amazing. Tour guide was awesome and fun to be around. My boyfriend and I had a great time.

Camillo_D, Aug 2022
Amazing views, location, great experience. Guide wasn't the best, too junior. Surely an experience to live
Rachel_S, Aug 2022
Our tour guide did not even show up and we were “toured” by a woman who was not even hired yet by company yet. She was gracious enough to to walk us most of the way of tour-without the history as she did not know it yet. She was very kind and would be a great guide. We were extremely disappointed with the whole experience though as we had to leave to catch our ride shortly after an official guide arrived. Our tour was for 830p and an official guide showed up at 920p.
Loved it!
Nicole_S, July 2022
Cherie was a wonderful guide! Very knowledgeable and entertaining! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to see the American side of the falls.
Beautiful night tour
Jeremy_W, July 2022
The tour guide was excellent witty and funny. She really explains alot with a flair and make thw tourbcome alive and a difderent way rather then the same sort of tour guide you get every where else.
Highly recommend!
James_M, July 2022
This tour was fantastic! We had the pleasure of getting Cherie as our tour guide. She was so sweet and knowledgeable! She took us to all the falls and we learned all about their history. She was so patient with the kids and all their questions. And the fireworks show at the end was the cherry on top! Highly recommend!!!
The illumination at the...
Dinesh_S, July 2022
The illumination at the Horseshoe fall was beautiful. The walk through the other two falls was equally beautiful.
Brittany_J, June 2022
Worst experience ever. Please save your money!! This company has the worst customer service. Myself nor the guide was able to get a hold of management when issues arose. I will be sharing this horrible experience on every platform that I have available as well as the other 6 people who were present and unfortunately had the same experience.
The guide can definitely improve
Vinod_K, June 2022
I have mixed feelings about this tour. I enjoyed the tour but the guide left me without letting me and I was very disappointed.
The view and the falls...
Yolanda_M, May 2022
The view and the falls was amazing. The tour guy was funny, but Not really worth the cost. The price per person was to expensive, it’s something you can do on your own. It was nice to have a tour guide.
Response from Host, May 2022
This is a small group tour and the tour guides are experts on the falls and do provide a full guided tour.
Just want ur money
Farman_A, May 2022
Did not get the tour and once I booked They would not listen. Just want your money. Use other vendors if possible.
Response from Host, May 2022
We scheduled a tour guide and you changed your mind 20 mins before the tour. Unfortunately tour guide full time job is to give tours and cancelling last minute mean they would not work. This is why we have a 24 hour refund policy. I hope you understand
Pretty Colors on Falls
Daniel_S, May 2022
The falls in color were pretty. We had seen them in the daytime so it was a new experience for us. Not as dramatic as we had envisioned.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for taking the time to write this review and we hope to see you again.
This is a total rip off
Arthur_P, May 2022
Save your money, what they don’t tell you is this is a walking tour, the pictures with their ad are from the Canadian side. You will not see the falls as they advertise. You are going to walk probably over 2 miles and climb several tall sets of stairs. You can do the same tour and see the same thing by driving to the parking area for Maid of the Mist and the one on Goat Island.
Response from Host, May 2022
You refused to join the tour. The tour is a very relaxing night tour with the photos on Viator from the actual tour and not from the Canadian Side. From the Canadian Side you can not see the full falls with all the illuminating lights the way you can see it from Luna Island. The full tour is only about 1/2 a mile. On the first line of inclusions in says walking tour.

It was very cold but beautiful. Wished it wasn’t so fenced in but still got some amazing pictures. Definitely wanna do it again when everything is open.
