What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls Canadian Side Sightseeing Tour

Niagara Falls July 4th Fireworks

There are some things that simply must be seen when visiting Niagara Falls, Canada. This 4-hour sightseeing tour has it covered. All of it.

Following a hotel pickup, an expert guide will begin this scenic and informative bus tour by sharing a bit of the history about Niagara Falls and the surrounding area. Listening (and learning) is only half the fun, though. The rest is doing. Lots of doing.

This tour includes a trip down the Niagara River and past the American and Bridal Veil Falls, right to the edge of the Horseshoe Falls on the Hornblower Niagara cruise. Feel the cool spray and the powerful sounds of the water. This is the experience of a lifetime for those taking the daytime sightseeing tour.

There’s also 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 from 520 feet in the air. It’s a sight to behold. Then just below the tower is Table Rock Centre, the closest view point of the falls on the Canadian side. Experience it and feel the roar of the mighty falls.

Also on the itinerary is a visit to Whirlpool State Park, overlooking the Niagara Whirlpool with spectacular views of the swirling waters of the rapids, the whirlpool itself and the Niagara River.

There are many more stops, including Goat Island, Queen Victoria Park, the famous Floral Clock and much more.

Choose from four different departure times, including an alternate evening illumination tour at “Journey Behind the Falls” (which replaces the Hornblower cruise in the evening) to explore the scenic tunnels below and behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.

Very good guide and we loved the tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

It was everything the web site said it would be. We got picked up in the hotel parking lot and dropped off there after the tour was over. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the experience a lot of fun. There were some older people on the tour as well as some with mobility problems which made it difficult to maintain the schedule, but the tour guide Alice did an excellent job with everyone.
