Best of Niagara Falls Tour

Niagara Falls

Want to get to know Niagara Falls, Canada? This is the tour with the most iconic, must-see experiences. Let’s get started.

After a hotel pickup, head to the central part of Niagara Falls with a professional guide, who will provide a detailed tour of the Canadian side of the falls, offering stories, history and fun facts along the way.

Start with an exciting ride up to the observation deck at the top of the majestic Skylon Tower. Enjoy the incredible view of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls — the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls from 520 feet in the air.

Then it’s down the elevator and off to the lookout point at the brink of the Horseshoe Falls, arguably the most popular spot to see the falls rolling over the edge of a cliff.

Next, experience the Journey Behind the Falls excursion, where the sound is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand in the mist and feel the rush where the Horseshoe Falls rumble from 13 storeys above — dropping over 700,000 gallons of water every second at 40 miles per hour. Now that’s powerful.

Then get ready for the cruise experience of a lifetime — a full 1-hour Hornblower cruise. This is as good as it gets.

After the cruise, continue to the Whirlpool Rapids, the largest series of standing waves in North America, for a whitewater walk that’s like — wow — and the famous Niagara Parks Floral Clock, a unique timepiece that has been photographed almost as often as Niagara Falls.

Should hunger strike along the way, there are a number of food stands to grab a quick snack or beverage.

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.
