We opted to purchase the 1/2 day small group tour and were lucky enough to get Jimmy as our guide. I'd read other reviews prior to booking and Jimmy was mentioned a lot and always in a great way. He was amazing, he took time to answer our touristy questions, he was very knowledgeable about the Niagra area, and shared some 1st hand interesting stories. He was like our bud during the tour. RP

I would highly highly Jimmy our tour guide again. Jimmy was great. Definitely a people person with a HUGE amount of patience. He made the trip so enjoyable. The best thing we did was booking the tour. It was so nice to bypass the long ticket lines, didn’t have to worry about driving and not knowing where to go. Jimmy took great care of us and the other 4 people in our group. He’s very knowledgeable, great with kids too.

Jimmy, our guide, was phenomenal!! We were on time everywhere. He was full of local knowledge. Clean spinter van was comfortable. My mother has impaired walking and was cared for appropriately. Notifications were great and clear. Make sure to take a drink or maybe they could offer a bottle of water. 5 stars!
