Harold was an excellent driver and gave us many tips. When the unexpected occurred, he was so flexible and had alternate plans at the ready to flex. He was so in tune with our interests and took us to areas of Canada that were exactly what we were looking for vice the tourist traps. When hubby couldn’t attend due to illness, he provided tips for the next day when he could travel so he didn’t miss out. Definitely recommend Wheelz of Niagra and GetYourGuide!
