Sam was a great guide: funny, personable, knowledgeable. We felt like the tour was a great value and was love to do it again, maybe in a longer format with visits to more stops within the park.

Darin has been a great guide, and explained everything in so much detail. He kept the tour extremely engaging and made it fun at the same time! I got to see some of the best views of the Falls and also learn a lot about their history. :)

Refund Request
Nichelle_J, Aug 2021
Didn’t go for the tour. The boss said I would get a refund but nobody to contact for that. The discription wasn’t clear and we did not want to walk with a tour guide for an hour
Family fun

Your website is confusing . I was under the impression that I ordered the boat cruise, and come to my surprise it was a ONE HOUR WALKING TOUR. Couldn't even buy tickets at the gate because it was all sold out. I really don't understand how you can pay $55 for a walking tour and all a man does is tell jokes. I was so disappointed.
