What You Can Expect

Ultimate Niagara Falls Tour plus Helicopter Ride and Skylon Tower Lunch

Ultimate Niagara Falls Tour plus Helicopter Ride and Skylon Tower Lunch

Get things started with a convenient hotel pickup in a comfortable sightseeing vehicle, complete with an expert guide who knows everything there is to know about Niagara Falls.

The ultimate Niagara Falls activity is a 1-hour Hornblower cruise to the edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. No trip to the falls is complete without it. Grab a poncho and get up close and personal with the rushing water. Feel the cool spray and hear the powerful sound. This is the experience of a lifetime.

Then take an equally exciting “Journey Behind the Falls” to explore the scenic tunnels below and behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Make no mistake, thrill seekers — this is as close to the falls as anyone wants to be. The sound is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand back, or in this case stand just close enough to feel the power. It’s exhilarating.

Enjoy the view from above all of Niagara’s natural and manmade attractions on a 12-minute helicopter ride, flying directly over top of the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then along the curve of the Horseshoe Falls.

Take an exciting ride up to the observation deck at the top of a Niagara Falls masterpiece, 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 go even higher, to the Revolving Dining Room, and choose from among five meticulously prepared dishes for a delightful lunch with a view.

Additional stops include Whirlpool State Park, the Niagara Falls hydroelectric generating plants, and the famous Floral Clock, one of the largest in the world, among others.

Glad we booked the all inclusive tour. Our guide was knowledgable, attentive and delightful. We also lucked out with the weather. Helicoptor ride was too short but an amazing experience. If you want the best shots from the air, try to get a window seat front or back on the right side of the chopper.

Absolutely fantastic!! Wonderful tour guide who kept the tour moving without putting us under pressure. Everything was well organised and well timed and true to the tour promise. The walk under the Falls was stunning the helicopter ride gave an unforgettable perspective of this natural wonder the Skylon lunch was fun - we had great company on our tour- and gave us a good restful break during the day. Finally the Hornblower trip was an essential part of the Niagara Falls experience - you will certainly get misted!! I highly recommend the trip. It's conducted by locals and the tour guide we had was a credit to his company. Well done!

Small group 6 of us in a van we were picked up and dropped off at our B and B knowledgeable, flexible, guide. Our guide, watching the weather, altered the planned order of the tour, taking us to the Helicopter early, because the flights would likely be grounded later in the day. The luncheon was quite good. The whole experience was well worth the money.

This was a wonderful tour. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip behind the falls, to the falls on the boat, lunch in the Skylon Tower and the helicopter ride. Would recommend this entire tour. Carwyn was our guide and did a great job. We couldn't do the helicopter ride on Saturday but called Carwyn and set it up for Monday. Lunch we all had steak at the Skylon Tower was excellent.
