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.

The tour guide Carwyn?? was really smart, nice and funny, extremely knowledgeable of the area. My entire family felt like we saw the best of everything. Well worth the cost.

Great tour! We had a lot of fun and enjoyed everything. No line ups, no parking fees or traffic problems, and great commentary and discussion from our friendly and punctual driver. I would book this tour again!

Great tour! I love that it is a small group. We were dropped off at each location and given our tickets or passes. Our tour guide then promptly retrieved us and off we went to the next stop. It was great that we didn't have any long lines. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very personable. I would highly recommend this as a great way to see the Falls area.

Fantastic tour! A must do trip if visiting Niagara. Our guide Guy was very informative and fun too! Had plenty of time at each location and did not have to queue. Unless you wanted to hire a car which may stress you out having to conquer the traffic system you couldn't organise yourself and do all that is in the tour in the 5hrs. It gives you time then to enjoy the rest of the area, chilling in the sun, taking in the views etc. excellent trip all round. Thanks! :

more than we expected. Great tour.

Very good tour. Pick up went without a hitch and the tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. The sites were worth seeing. The only downside was the fact that the guide had to split his time between two tour groups, thus we did not have his undivided attention.

The Hornblower experience was excellent.

Guy was an excellent tour guide! Great humor,cordial, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. Wear old sneakers for the boat ride, because you will get wet, but a great experience!
