What You Can Expect

Best of Niagara Falls Tour

Niagara Falls

After hotel pickup by minivan, head to Niagara Falls with your guide, who will lead you on your comprehensive tour of the Canadian side of the falls and provide fun facts and other commentary about all the different features you’ll see.

Start at Skylon Tower, where you’ll ride up to the observation deck that, at 520 feet (160 meters) above the ground and 775 (236 meters) feet above the bottom of the falls, offers spectacular views of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls — Horseshoe Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and American Falls. Then visit the lookout point at the brink of Horseshoe Falls, where you have about 20 minutes to take pictures and marvel at the incredible amount of water tumbling down the cliffs.

Next, experience the Journey Behind the Falls, a series of tunnels that start near the bottom of Horseshoe Falls and give you a look at the backside and underside of the cascade, where you’ll enjoy a different perspective of the thundering water. Then get ready for one of Niagara’s highlights — a 1-hour Hornblower cruise. This wet and wild ride gets you as close to Horseshoe Falls as possible so you can hear how loud the water is and feel its powerful spray.

After the cruise, continue your tour to the power plant for a 5-minute photo op, and then head to the whirlpool rapids observation deck with your camera in hand. Finally, finish up at the Floral Clock, a nearby attraction and popular photo stop for visitors leaving the falls.

Throughout your tour, there are food stands where you can grab a quick bite if you get hungry (free snacks and drinks not included). Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

We had a great tour! Our tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. He offered facts about the falls but also about the area. He offered local facts as we traveled between sights and gave offered insights into getting the best views. Highly recommend the tour and the group handling the tours.

The tour was fabulous! There were only us and 1 other couple so it was very intimate and very personalized. The tour guide was super knowledgeable and gave us a very keen insight on behind the falls and even where to stand on the Hornblower! It was superb!

Excellent tour by a very good guide. We saw all the main attractions around the falls plus several nearby points of interest which we wouldn't otherwise habe found. Highly recommended.

This was a wonderful tour! Visiting Niagara Falls surpassed all of our expectations. Carwyn, our guide, was absolutely delightful, and very knowledgeable about the area and its recent and historic past. He planned the various stops to take advantage of the late afternoon and #39;s setting sun on all views.

I loved this tour. Got pretty wet on the boat but so worth it. It would be nice to be able to have time to go on the ride over the whirlpool rapids. We really appreciated the guide as he had to work on the Thanksgiving holiday.

We purchased two groups tours and both of our tour guides were incredible. They were very helpful, very well researched, great to communicate with, and they easily established rapport with adults, kids and teenagers in our group. I would recommend the tour to anyone who wants that personalised attention and get the best of their time at Niagara Falls.
