Requested a spanish speaking guide twice, was never given one, whats the point of having the option of offering to have the tour in spanish when booking, if theres only one guide in the whole company that is bilingual. (Not to mention that the specific guide wasnt even working at the cave for the day we booked it for. Not to mention that we paid double the price of the acutal ticket( bc we thought we would have someone give us the tour in spanish!) paid $54 per person group of 8 when the tickets for the actual cave at the park are only $19. Save your money and judt wait in line. The guide doesnt even go to the cave with you, they just walk you around the park for 45 minute’s explaining the things you can read in the signs through out the park.

We are truly sorry this was your experience with requesting our Spanish Guide. Our reservation system missed that information with your booking to notify our team. We have fixed that reservation issue on our end and humbly apologize for the inconvenience.

1. Tour guide Bryan! He was very personable, kind, patient, professional, willing to take pictures for us, and full of passion explaining all the history behind the falls, especially about the dare devils - my 18 year old son loved it! 2. Also, my son and I standing under the waterfall ~ absolutely an unforgettable experience!!

Ok Experience

I had asked for a Spanish-speaking guide and wound up with an English speaking guide. That made the whole first part of the trip useless for my husband who only speaks Spanish. The guide was very good and I wish my husband had been able to understand him.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
I'm so very sorry this was your experience with us. Unfortunately, we were completely unaware that you required a Spanish speaking guide until we saw this review. We certainly could've made arrangements had we known the moment you saw it as an issue. Hopefully, if you ever return, we can make it up to you. Our guide Billy absolutely loves to give tours in Spanish.

Way over priced, want money back
Andrew_M

I was in Niagara Falls on May 7th and booked a tour for Cave of the Winds the night before. I showed up at the ticket booth thinking I would get my tickets there. I saw that the price was roughly 75% less than what I paid online. I purchased the tickets there instead and went on the first available tour which was earlier than the one I booked thru Viator. I would like a refund of $109.98 since I didn't use your services or use your guide for the Cave of the Winds. Thanks for your time

Note that most of this tour you can accomplish on your own; however, it was nice to have a guide for the commentary and to ask questions. Also a great "skip the line" for Cave of the Winds tickets. It was quite chilly when we visited so the line wasn't too long but I can imagine how long the wait can be in the summer months.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Thank you Virginia! Yes, it can get quite chaotic in the summer and this experience the process and gives great context to pair with those amazing views!
