Historically informative
, Nov 2019
The guide was well versed in relaying the historical information associated with the guided tour. However, the tour was a bit overpriced for what we experienced. Overall, we enjoyed the tour.
Good African American History

We enjoyed this informal Tour of the connection of the Underground Railroad to Canada. Very informative and Kevin the tour guide went over and beyond to ensure we got as much information as possible. We learned so much as well as got to see some major sites in this area.

Excellent Tour with great information. Guide was excellent. Lead up to the Tour was spoiled by misinformation given by Viator to the Tour Guide about our location - they advised him we were in British Columbia - we were Niagara Falls! This problem didn't get resolved until about 45 minutes before the tour was due to start - the guide went out of his way to get in touch with us to sort out the problem.

Wish I had not gotten into the van provided for this tour. It was filthy. Windshield was cracked all the way across. Not a good start. We cut it short ,very short. CertainlyNot worth what we paid.

Wow, we work very hard to provide a good experience and to educate so, when we get a review like this it causes us to scratch our heads in amazement because its not even close to what our clients say about us. I actually take personal offense to our van being so-called filthy - funny nobody else that day lodged the same complaint. Sounds like this person wasn't a history lover - it helps to be one when taking our tour or it could be a long day. We NEVER cut a tour short, if anything its always over the allotted time and as for the cracked windshield it happened that morning but instead of cancelling the tour we went ahead with it not to disappoint our clients as long as it wasn't a safety hazard. I've learned that you can't please everyone but, thanks for taking the time to provide feedback unfortunately, we can't correct this complaint because we see it as internal within this person, however the windshield has since been fixed. Hopefully this person learned a nugget of history.

Spectacular. The guide was knowledgeable and was able to transport us back in time...we could appreciate the dangerous undertaking to freedom. The most interesting part of the tour was Harriet Tubman's place of worship and one of the stops on the Underground Railroad. Great care has been taken to keep it in it's original exciting. The walls in the basement display dozens of historical photos including Harriet Tubman at various points in her life. This tour is a must complete to complete your visit to the Canadian side of the Falls!

I took this tour and the guide was very informative. I was even able to arrange a pickup a from an alternate hotel that was not necessarily one of the pickups listed. We had actually scheduled for an afternoon tour, but there ended up being a conflict and the tour guide gave us the option for the morning tour and this worked out very well. The guide was very knowledgeable and he even had pictures to show. He took us to certain sites where the slaves had crossed, showed us a slave burial ground, and even the first church Harriett Tubman attended in Canada. If you want to learn more about certain history, this is the trip for you.

This was an amazing tour. I thought I knew a lot about the underground railroad but there was so much more to learn not only in general terms but seeing and learning about some of the historical sites and having Kevin explain their stories really added to my knowledge. Keven was simply wonderful, he was a few minutes early, patient with our 2 kids, very knowledgeable about the subject matter and willing to spend time at stops. While this tour was primarily about the underground railroad and how it involved the local area we did get to see a lot of the surrounding areas and stopped at several spots to view the river, the flower clock and other sites that we would have missed without a car.. Would highly recommend this tour..
