    Took the Over the Falls Tours Niagara Falls - American Side. Picked up at our hotel in Niagara Falls on time. Total group size was 10 which was great. Rainy morning so we did the Maid of the Mist Boat ride first since you will get wet anyway. Easy access and no lines. Observation deck was the next stop for some pictures. Short bus ride to Goat Island to view the Falls from above and see Cave of the Winds which gets you very close to Bridal Veil Falls from below. Note: There is no Cave and in late October they begin taking down some of the walkways in preparation for winter.

    Final stop was Three Sisters Islands which is accessed from Goat Island. Then we were returned to our hotels. Tour guide was Josh who did a great job. Very personable, easy to talk to and answered all questions. He provided lots of information.

    Ricardo told a little about himself. He took us around Niagara Falls. Was so knowledgeable about
    all the different events that happen in the past. He made us think and also made us laugh. Our family
    so enjoyed the day with him.
    Aloha Ricardo.........

    The tour was well organised. Our guide Nick was informative and worked hard to make our afternoon enjoyable. The Maid of the Mist ride and Cave of the Winds experience were both memorable.

    Pat R was our tour guide and he was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and knew his history of Niagra falls. The 4 hour tour went smoothly and had a great time

    The attraction is wonderful, it was the price and service of our tour that was horrible. We were told we would not wait in line but we did. Due to other passengers being late we were rushed and received an abbreviated mini tour (12-15 minutes). We didn’t have the time to shop or go to the observation deck at Maid of the Mist. Then our Cave of the Winds was canceled. When requesting a refund we only received $19 per person after paying $99 per person. The cost of Maid of the Mist wasn’t more than $29 we could have saved money, seen everything, and enjoyed our trip by purchasing We traveled from Missouri and only had this one opportunity and it was an expensive rip off. I expected at minimum to be refunded half my cost as I only received 1/3 of what was paid for. This is wrong.
