Fun Unofficial Tour of Cornell - Adriana was flexible with us as we really wanted to see Cornell but the official tours were full. She was very knowledgeable about the university having graduated from there. She also led us on a cool hike up one of the gorges to the campus. Very enjoyable experience.

Great tour guide but poor coordination by TripAdvisor - Originally booked for Saturday but due to rain weather forecast, I changed to Sunday morning for 9am tour. Even after email confirmation of changes I made, TripAdvisor says they never got change notification so ended up having tour at 8am on Sunday instead. It seems like there’s lack of communication with TripAdvisor and Viator(another tour company trip advisor is working with). Actual tour lasted approximately two hours and was well worth the time and money! Tour guide was very knowledgeable, well prepared, informative and learned tons of Ithaca history which made up for all the confusion with booking issues
