"Although the guide was funny and the trip to the falls was just decent, neither the guide nor the bus drivers ensured COVID-19 safety measures were being followed. No one received a mandatory temperature check before the tour began and masks were not enforced. Several travelers (including the guide + drivers) removed their masks while on the bus, and the couple sitting directly behind me coughed through the entire trip without masks on. They were asked to wear masks after we complained, but they took them off and continued to cough the entire bus ride. It was an extremely uncomfortable trip and I would not recommend anyone that values their health and safety take this tour. Additionally, the company seemed to be unaware of the fact everything at the national park was going to be closed on a holiday (we were there on Thanksgiving day), so the trip was cut short by about 5 hours -- Will there be a refund? Doubt it."
