fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I didn't really have any expectations for this trip and maybe that's why it was so extra. I guess I just thought I was going to another Niagara Falls. Our guide, Hector, asked us if we wanted to take helicopter trips over the falls ($120/person, 10 min.) Probably the best bang for my buck ever spent. The falls were magical. We had great weather so everything was just perfect. I fell in love with RY extra hard on this trip. It's hard to put into words, but I'm a devoted skier--when I have those extra special days, I feel like that's my connection to a higher power. I felt that on this trip.
Awesome experience. Hotel was super nice. Fun activities and great tour guide.
A fun weekend packed full with activity--early mornings and full days. A great way to enjoy nature. The waterfalls were incredible and I'm so glad I went! The only annoyance was how crowded the parks were...lots of pushy tourists, very instagram vs. reality vibe (not a RY issue, obviously). Still very worth it!
I grew up next to Niagara falls and woooowwwwwww these waterfalls are absolutely incredible. I appreciate that we were able to see both sides-- accommodation was lovely and guides were very knowledgable! MUST DO! You'll get a wet both days so I recommend fast dry clothing or waterproof bags!
