Zack was a knowledgeable, fun and funny guide. The Maid of the Mist was magical and an absolute Must… as was the cave of the wind Add to this the customer service and you all get 10 stars. We missed our tour because I didn’t pay attention to details yet when I called, your team did not hesitate to rebook us and make sure we got to the right location for our tour. This was a blast!!

Everything was smooth and no surprises along the way. The walk to the Maid of the Mist was full of fun information. Caleb did a great job explaining everything that was happening along the way. The times we were given for each event were right on time. My grandkids had a terrific time. Would do it all again!

Nate was our guide. He did great getting us where we needed to be. It was perfect weather. We had a fabulous time that day. The only reason I’m giving it a 4 is that I felt it was over priced. I do believe the amount of actual tour against admission prices was more than doubled. There was no transportation involved only walking. I take lots of tours and feel extra pricing is well worth it. This I did not. It is easy to get these tickets on your own and get where you need to be.
