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 the best guide, who was able to answer a lot of the questions we asked that day. Every attraction we went to was well worth seeing.

It was an amazing tour. It was money well spent. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly yet professional.
The family we grouped with was perfect... It could not have been better

Absolutely worth the very reasonable tour fee I do not believe you could do it for less when you consider admission and parking costs.

The guide was courteous, informative and naturally friendly. Felt more like visiting with a friend then a guided tour.

I will use again my next visit, and recommend to all acquaintances visiting the falls

A great tour and one that was well worth doing! We were driven around in a lovely air conditioned car and, as the only family in our 'group', we were made to feel special throughout. Just the right amount of time at each location - enough to enjoy it without feeling hurried and pick up refreshments as required. Daud's local knowledge made touring the area all the more interesting. We particularly enjoyed the 'Journey Behind the Falls' and the Hornblower cruise. Brilliant!

The tour was the highlight of our trip. Carwyn was friendly and informative. There was a hitch when the boat cruise got suspended but Carwyn went out of his way to reschedule so we didn't miss out. The tour meant we skipped public lines so meant it was time efficient as well. Thoroughly recommend the tour to anyone.
