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.

Great way to tour the falls without the hassle of fighting lines or traffic. Our guide was very friendly and shared a lot of interesting facts about the falls. The Journey behind the falls was awesome and view from Skylon tower was great. Be prepared to get very wet on the boat cruise if you want the full experience of the falls, otherwise stay inside the boat. We got VIP entrance to the attractions with the tour so no waiting and saw everything in 5 hours. It was great!

The behind the falls was great because you see the falls up close... The Skylon tower offers great views.... The maid of the mist was amazing (an even more up close view of all the falls) Chris was very nice and got us to each location with little to no wait!

We toured April 30th and had a great time - weather was perfect and skies were clear to view all the sights. Our guide was a pleasure, and filled us in with the history of Niagara Falls and all the other sights we visited. Would certainly recommend this trip to everyone.

We had Caerwyn as a tour guide. We had the hotel pick up and drop off, went to the Skylon and took some fun pictures, then beyond the falls through the VIP entrance, drove around town where we learned the history and got suggestions of where to visit and eat, got to see the whirlpool, and the tour ended with the Hornblower boat ride, where Caerwyn told us where to stand for the best views. It was great experience with a very informed tour guide. We learned lots of information and saw a lot. I recommend this to all ages.
