What You Can Expect

Best of Niagara Falls Tour from Niagara Falls, Ontario

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.

We enjoyed our tour in Niagra Falls. Our tour guide, John was pleasant and knowledgeable. He arranged all our tickets and we had a smooth time. We liked the small group idea. We visited the major attractions.

Such a great tour. You get to do the best of the best in one day, with the comfort of transportation. Our guide was so friendly, excited, and accommodating. She shared info with us and gave us advice like the best place to stand on the Hornblower. When our group all decided we wanted to do the Aerocar not an official part of the tour, she changed plans to drop us there and come back for us after handling another group. After our tour, she offered to drop us anywhere - not just back to our hotels - so we got a ride to a restaurant for free. Highly recommend!

We had a great time on our tour. It was a small group so that made it very personable and our guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. We were able to see and learn much more about Niagara than we could have on our own. I would highly recommend the tour.

We had an amazing time on our tour. Mike did a great job telling us all about everything and made our tour so enjoyable with all of his knowledge and stories. We also only had our family of four and one other man with us which made it much easier with our children who are 3 and 6. We had plenty of time at each stop and learned so much. We would highly highly recommend this tour for anyone. Also the tip to get the bottom right of the boat ride for the best view was spot on. Great spot for pictures and great tip from Mike. And if you get Mike as your guide you can add on an extra star for personality and friendliness :

We had a great time! Guy, our guide, was very kind and attentive especially with our two small children. We loved the convenience of seeing the sights while avoiding parking and long lines in order to buy tickets to attractions. Everything was wonderful! We'd recommend this tour to friends. :

Awesome tour with a great and friendly guide. Very complete tour where you can see the falls from above, behind and almost within -
Adults loved the explanations and kids loved the wet experience on the boat!
We also really enjoyed being just the 5 of us with the guide it made the experience even more unique.

Our tour of Niagara Falls themselves and the city went seamlessly. Guy who was our guide was the best guide we have ever had in our travels and I would highly recommend him. He was knowledgeable, funny, and calm and reassuring. And he was so funny as well and kept up with my husband's quips which come pretty briskly! I would certainly use your company again, especially if we could have Guy as our guide again, but would contact your company wherever we go. Thanks for a good time!!
