Niagara Falls Tour Video Testimonial and Vlog
One of our guests, the lovely Mrs. Prince, took our trip in the fall of 2021 with her husband and two kids. She surprised us with a video testimonial on Youtube, along with a full vlog of her day. Check this video out to see her review of Queen Tour Niagara Falls Tours as her Toronto tour operator for this trip, with a special shout-out for our tour guide Nathan (0:40), followed by recorded clips from her day!
Mrs. Prince records her 1 hour and 16 minute journey from Toronto to Niagara Falls (1:35), her experience seeing the waterfalls (4:01), the Journey Behind the Falls activity (6:23), Clifton Hill (13:15), the Niagara Whirlpool (15:25), the Hydro Power Station (15:4), the world’s smallest church (16:50), and wine tasting (16:55). Our itinerary varies based on daily conditions, and we no longer stop at the winery as we opted for more free time in Niagara Falls instead – but this is a great summary of what your trip will be like!
