This Review is Two Parts:
1) Tour Itself - Randy was awesome. Other than being an awesome chaperone of our group during a busy holiday weekend as the country is opening up, he gave us tips and best practices on how to be a visitor vs. a tourist. Case in Point - Randy obviously knows the itinerary of the boat (where the boat will go, when the boat will turn, etc). Randy told us where to stand and when to get the best views, pictures, where to get wet, where not to get wet. He also told us where to position ourselves on the way back so when the boat docked, we were the first to exit out of dozens of people. When he gave us "alone' time, he was very clear where and when to meet. However, the highlight of the tour was the Cave of the Winds. Other than telling us how to navigate that breathtaking tour, he assisted me with my proposal to my now fiance and took the pictures when I proposed. Randy was amazing.

2) Vacation Itinerary. Dawn was equally as amazing. Over the Falls Tours also offers transportation services to and from (at least) Buffalo / Niagara International Airport. When I was determining how to get to and from our hotel in Niagara, I also noticed on the website they provided transportation services. My research told me that renting a car for a holiday weekend made absolutely no sense so I decided to use them to get to and from Niagara. It was professional limo service to the point that, at the airport and at the hotel, the driver held a sign with our last name (like the movies) waiting for us and taking care of us for the entire ride and also giving a tour as they were driving. And lastly, when I was working with Dawn on the itinerary, she informed me of a better located hotel with possibly better rates and worked that. After a week, she was able to move us from a hotel located a distance away from the downtown to the downtown right across the street from the state park and at a lower rate.

In short, the tour, the hotel, and the transportation to and from the airport / hotel were arranged by Over the Falls Tours. They even helped with my proposal to my now fiance. I expected a tour and got a total solution from Dawn and Randy. How could I possible not give them my highest recommendation? 6 stars out of 5!

Dayna was an absolutely amazing guide! She went above and beyond to give us a terrific Niagara experience. We visited countless sites, Dayna gave us bountiful information about the parks, the politics, and the history of the entire region. More over, she took a small practical joke to the bank. Not only a tour guide, but for us a new friend. Words really cannot describe the level of service we experienced with Over The Falls Tours and especially the true sincerity of Dayna. We highly recommend them for your trip to Niagara Falls and we will definitely be calling them for our winter trip next year!

We all loved being on “Team Christine”!
Christine was our driver AND tour guide. She managed to keep tabs on a full bus load of tourists amidst unusually crowded attractions. “Team Christine” had such diverse cultures and ages, including one needing a wheelchair. Even though some people got lost and caused quite a delay, Christine responded with patience and a great attitude, and made sure we still saw everything on the tour. She is a credit to Over the Falls Tours!

Wow! In a word WOW!! The tour with Team Paul was amazing. Paul was super entertaining and accommodating. History of the Falls sprinkled with a bunch of laughs made for a great time. The American Falls were great and the experience of the Maid of the Midst boat ride into Horseshoe Falls was incredible and is a spiritual experience you will never forget! Tips: Eat a big breakfast or bring a bag with snacks and drink thermos cuz it’s go go Go! No time for snacking or drinks cuz the group will keep rolling if you dip for a quick drink/snack. Also, wear light clothes you don’t mind getting wet.

This 'Over The Falls' small group tour was thoroughly enjoyable with Nick, who ensured, from start to finish, that each one of us enjoyed the tour. He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotels. His personality is warm, with infectious smiles and laughter that engaged us all. He made certain that the group, which ranged from 7 to 75, all had a great time, and bonded. He educated us with the history, anecdotes, quizzes, kept us appraised of the current point of the itinerary, the timing, things to watch out for, and that we were o.k. He effortlessly kept "Team Nick" moving, with food and drinks, and on time for each phase of the tour. This tour was approximately 4 hours, which was just perfect to see and experience the highlights of the Niagara Falls area. I owe a debt of thanks to Nick and the 'Over The Falls' for finding my cell phone and bringing it back to my hotel. They are incredible!!! - Team Nick

Nick was excellent in personality and knowledge and stories of the area. He was enthusiastic and kept the group entertained. He was very skillful in keeping the group together and recognizing and interacting with the members. He expertly avoided a situation when a unknown person tried to join the group on the bus. He handled the situation excellently. We would highly recommend the tour and our guide without reservation.

I took my father and my wife to see the falls because they never had before and the entire experience was absolutely wonderful. After booking our tickets, we had a member of their team call us to verify all our information the day before, and to situate our pick-up location and time. Everyone was very friendly and professional. Our tour guide, Dan, was well versed in his knowledge of the area and the falls which made for a very informative time as well. The time frames and directions given to us were well planned out and on top of that, Dan was exceptionally patient with some of the others in our group. I definitely recommend the Over the Falls Tour to anyone who wants to experience Niagara to the fullest without having to spend so much for as much as was included. Made for an extremely memorable day. The Powers family thanks you all!

We had never been to the area before and came upon this tour option! I am so glad we chose this. The rates were reasonable, the person at the ticket booth (Amber) was very helpful and our tour guide Marcello was the best! He has full knowledge of the area, was great in getting us to our stops timely and provided us with some laughs along the way. We visited key locations and sailed on the Maid of the mist which is a must when visiting.
No doubt our trip was made better by this tour. We will recommend to friends and family and we will use this service in the future.

Our Tour Guide Randy was absolutely amazing. From the time he picked us up until the time we were dropped off he showed professionalism. He made sure we were well informed about our tour on the Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Wind, visit to the State park, and even our lunch stop. Visiting from Tampa, Florida, I can truly say I have never experienced a more caring and thorough guide as Randy. I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting the Niagara Falls, NY area and by all means, request Randy. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks Randy for making our tour so memorable.
