busrasefer, Sept 2023
It was so good with everything. I highly recommended. Kylab was doing great job. I believe he really likes his job
You can feel the awe inspiring power of the water pushing the boat.
Ellen_B, Sept 2023
Hearing the awesome power of the Falls as it cascades down almost on top of us was my most memorable moment at Niagara Falls.
Excellent trip - totally recommend
Martina_M, Sept 2023
Winston was very informative & offered his number if anyone got lost - gave lots of hints - we bought skip the line tickets - if you want to get really wet go right to the front of the boat - absolutely amazing experience - lots of restroom stops on way to falls & straight back to Toronto
Amazing experience at Niagara
Monika_F, Sept 2023
Our tour guide Tracy was awesome! The boat ride was an amazing experience! We will recommend this tour to anyone looking to come to Niagara Falls
Rosemarie_F, Sept 2023
Excellent experience. Picked up on time. Tour guide was very informative. The highlight of the tour was the boat cruise...amazing....well worth the cost of the tour alone.
Helen_M, Sept 2023
The driver John was exceptional very knowledgeable and informant polite and on time took us to some amazing photo opportunities and made the experience a once in a life time
Awesome experience
Anitha_B, Aug 2023
Tour guide Mr. Vincent was friendly, on time and informative He was knowledgeable about the places to visit in the Niagara
Niagara Falls are amazing!
GraemeAndrew_H, Aug 2023
Easy way to get to Niagara Falls and short stops at some historical and tourist attractions before getting to the Falls. Great to have tickets for the boat ride included. Would have like the option to purchase other attraction tickets as well. Use time wisely as 3 hours at the Falls is not enough.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thanks for posting your review! Just an FYI, the only attraction that gives you skip-the-line tickets is the boat cruise. The others can be purchased on-site at each ticket box because there is literally no time benefit to pre-purchasing them with any tour operator. We don't bother selling them in advance, in case people want to make changes to their plan for the day. The free time is designed to give you time for the boat cruise + 1-2 other attractions and lunch. We offer the most free time of any tour operator that does day tours. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and thanks for again for writing!
Definitely a bucket list item
Joseph_P, Aug 2023
Our guide Winston was fantastic. He started the tour off with our itinerary so we could manage our expectations. In addition, Winston gave us so much info as we were traveling to Niagara Falls. The short stops along the way primed us for the spectacle of the Falls. We had no idea there was so much to do in and around the Falls area. We were glad we added the cruise. Seeing the US & Canadian falls up close was fantastic. We didn’t mind getting a little wet at all. The only downside is the tour operator needs to get better air conditioned buses. It was so hot on the return trip and we sat in so much traffic.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Thanks for your feedback! I'm glad you had such a great trip with Winston. You were on our 2021 bus with dual compressors for extra power. It should be keeping you nice and cool - we'll take a look to make sure nothing is wrong, thanks for letting us know. Also sorry for the long return trip, it's normally a 2-hour drive back to enter the city but last Friday it took 3.5 hours. Totally insane! It must have been quite frustrating for everyone on board and I know for our staff as well. Sometimes we might hit some bad traffic that delays us by 20-30 minutes but this was the worst day of the season for traffic. Appreciate your understanding :)
Brilliant tour
Philine_S, Aug 2023
It was a brilliant trip with Kaleb who offered so much information and made sure everyone was comfortable and happy.

Niagara tour
Michael_E, July 2023
Would highly recommend this tour! Adam was knowledgeable and entertaining. It was the perfect amount of time to explore Niagara Falls.
Nightmare to niagara !
Xaki_R, July 2023
Queen bus company completely MISREPRESENTED this whole trip and the day ! Was a disaster ! Firstly they claim to pick you up from your hotel , totally UNTRUE ! The concierge at the hotel told us this is a common complaint and they have been doing this for sometime . My husband has mobility issues and I would never have booked them knowing we had to walk 1 km to meet the bus . The bus was the next nightmare , it was a very humid day in Toronto and the bus was packed to the brim and the aircon was not working for 2 hours all the way down there . The bus driver claimed to have taken it fro repaid before trip back but it was only marginally better . This company does everything on the cheap .. there are other services available that we were not aware of at time . No one likes to be fed lies and treated like a herd of cattle

Regarding the air-conditioner - I'm not sure why you are saying it didn't work. The only issue was that a bit of water leaked from the fan, and a lovely woman in the back notified Kaleb. Turns out some of the seal came off from the fan. So right away on his break, Kaleb took it to our mechanic to reseal the fan. Luckily we have connections in Niagara Falls that treat us as priority customers so the leak was quickly addressed and it didn't leak water anymore. This did not affect the temperature and was addressed immediately after being notified. I am personally very proud of Kaleb for his quick identification of the issue, and our company for being able to address it so quickly. Regarding pick-up: We have addressed your questions and inquiries prior to the trip as our communication channel is transparent and clear on all instructions. Once booking is complete you receive a confirmation with your pick-up location based on where you’re staying. We also always send a follow-up email the day before the trip. The pick-up info on the page you booked sounds pretty crystal clear to me but you can let me know if a part of it is confusing. This is a copy of the text "Downtown Toronto Pickup is from 7:45 - 8:20 AM and is available from select hotels and other meeting points across the city. We pick up from 11 hotels and landmarks which are around 5 minutes walking distance from most Downtown hotels and Airbnb locations." You stayed at the King Edward Hotel and so we asked you to meet at the Hockey Hall of Fame, one of our pick-up options which was 400 meters away or a 5-minute walk according to Google Maps. As explained to you prior to the tour when you asked why we won't take you exactly from the hotel entrance - if we picked everybody up from their specific location, everyone on board would need to spend multiple hours extra on the bus navigating through construction and traffic both in the morning and on the return trip, and nobody would have clear pick-up times since it would be different each day and we wouldn't be able to guarantee a time as we do now. Actually, our 11 Toronto pick-up options are the most that any tour operator offers, meaning people that book with us will generally have a much easier time joining than with any other company, and we just go down the path towards Niagara Falls meaning nobody wastes time going off-route. Sending you lots of positive energy ☺️

Thé expérience was amazing. Tracy was one of the most patient, friendly yet professional guide I have met. The tour was well organized and worth doing.
A Nice DayTrip to Niagara Falls
Stephanie_G, July 2023
John was a great tour guide. He pointed out, and explained, many features of the greater Toronto and Niagara Falls area. He reminded everyone of our departure times often enough that we couldn't forget but not inan overbearing way. He also offered to take a couple pictures of my husband and I at different locations so that was very sweet. The a.c. in the bus wasn't working properly on the way back from the Falls so it did get a little toasty and everyone opened their window to try and circulate some air.
Great tour with Queens
Claire_S, July 2023
Kaleb at Queens Tours was great, really informative and helpful! The falls are amazing and well worth a trip.
