GUEST REVIEWS

2018 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence

" There were so many little details taken care of, from bypassing the crowds with our guide, to our own luxury, private vehicle and driver. I never realized what a difference it could make. Turns out it makes all the difference in the world. I cannot imagine experiencing Niagara any other way. "

Susan K., Plano, TX

" I brought a customer over to Toronto and we visited the Niagara Falls and the Niagara falls on the lake town, our driver and tour guide was Walter T. He was exceptional, intelligent and a well mannered man. He had answers for every question and he left a good impression on us. I will surely use this company again should I bring over more customers. "

" I've been on many tours around the world and this one by far is the best one! Booking with Crystal was hassle free. She was knowledgeable and able to provide me the best tour option possible considering my mom's needs. I ended up booking a private tour for mom and I with Emil. Emil, I cannot sum up in words how great of a man / guide he is! Very courteous, knowledgeable, witty, funny, and kind. He accommodated to all of our needs. We did not feel rushed, we were comfortable, all the little touches he added made this experience unforgettable.  "

LoveTravelWorldxo, TripAdvisor Review

" Absolutely the highlight of our Trip to Toronto and Niagara Falls. A wonderful tour of Niagara Falls, Niagara on the Lake, and a tour of a local winery. It was a trip perfect for children with times to unwind and totally carefree. I cannot imagine driving a rental car to Niagara Falls when you can hire VIP Ontario Tours and learn so much about the history and area. This tour guide is highly recommended and was certainly the highlight of our vacation to Toronto. We had two children with us. They absolutely loved EVERY MINUTE OF IT. Thank you. "
