Barry is very knowlagable and accommodating guide. We enjoyed our trip to Niagara Falls.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a remarkable trip. Your informed group was challenged by thunderstorms, large crowds and traffic conjestion ---- and came-out on top! You enjoyed a splendid lunch and then completed the trifecta --- a helicopter survey of the natural spectacle from the air, eye-level vistas of the mighty Niagara River, and the Hornblower River Cruise charging into the face of the thundering tumbling wall of foaming water. All these experiences were accomplished in under 4-hours. Bravo!!!
Barry knows the area aroung Toronto like the back of his hand, and took us to all the best viewing area's of the Niagara Falls with his minivan. The visit to charming Niagara village was a nice bonus, and we can highly recommend this addition to the trip. You can tell Barry has been teaching his whole life!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Your family, including your wife and three daughters, made for an energetic and enthusiastic day in Niagara Falls. It was a win-win-win day for everyone! You were keen to gain an appreciation of the unique character and features of the overall Niagara region. You took full advantage of the attractions and all the best that Niagara has to offer. You all "came with your game faces on" and determined to enjoy the magic of a world class location!

We had an excellent day on our Niagara Falls tour. Barry was extremely friendly and helpful; also giving an insight to the history of the area and lots of interesting local facts. A thoroughly enjoyable day - would highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very encouraging comments. The whole experience really hinges on the enthusiasm and interests of our visitors --- and your day certainly encountered some challenging weather that did not dampen your energy in any way. Your family group of 4 people were wonderful international visitors!
Fantastic day. Barry was very knowledgable and very easy to get on with. Thoroughly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am pleased to hear that your day in Niagara Falls was both enjoyable and memorable given your very busy and demanding travel schedule across such an extensive area of Canada and the United States. You seemed to accomplish 2-days of site visits in just 1-day! Count-up the 8 separate stops: a winery, the mouth of the Niagara River, the charming town of Niagara-on-the Lake, the Floral Clock, the Hydro installations, a helicopter overview, Maid of the Mist boat ride, Table Rock terrace... Well done!

Thoroughly knowledgeable guide who fulfilled our travel brief totally. Personable, punctual, thoughtful and proudly Canadian. His in depth narrative on Canada's history, geography, geology, and economy was second to none Thank you for a wonderful day Barry. We will never forget our experience of Niagara Falls from every perspective. Janet And Ken Boddington UK
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind remarks. I was delighted to show and discuss such a wide area of topics sparked by your own personal interests and involvement. You certainly took full advantage of the opportunities available on private tours that are obviously not possible with coach travel and the large groups of passengers.

Apologies for the delay on this review. Barry was very responsive before our visit to Toronto, willing to be flexible in terms of start/end time and what we wanted to do/avoid. On time on the day, followed our agreed tour. Barry is very knowledgable and was easy to talk to. We went to Niagara on the lake and then on to Niagara Falls. Barry arranged a discount for us for the helicopter ride, which was great - we also stayed later to see the falls illuminated. A fab personalised tour with a lovely guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to be able to respond to your various personal requests. After all, that is our mission statement: "your tour...your way".

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The glorious weather and your interests and energy made for a very productive and memorable day. Thanks for the opportunity to arrange a day to meet your requests.
Barry is a remarkably patient and understanding guide. No doubt his teaching career has helped him to empathise with visitors of all nationalities better. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would recommend it to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to provide access to so many of the major attractions at Niagara Falls in your limited window of time. I am also pleased that we were able to explore other sites of specific interest to your group.
