What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls Day Trip from Toronto

Hornblower Niagara Cruises Boat Ride at Niagara Falls

Your 8-hour Niagara Falls adventure begins with morning pickup from your downtown Toronto hotel. Relax in a comfortable coach as you traverse the scenic Niagara Peninsula, a lush region spotted with orchards and vineyards. Disembark at the falls and recharge with a buffet lunch before hopping on the lovely Hornblower Niagara Cruises boat. (Note: Cruise does not operate from late-October to mid-April). 

Stroll the deck or grab a seat inside for the float along Niagara River to the epic Horseshoe Falls. If the cruise is not operating, pop into the Imax Theater for a dramatic presentation or witness the thundering falls from land at the ‘Journey Behind the Falls’ exhibition. Finish with a visit to the stunning Whirlpool Rapids observation deck.

Afterward, board your coach for the return ride to Toronto. Stop en route at Floral Clock, the charming town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, and at a local winery. Enjoy an optional tasting at own expense. 

Your tour ends with evening drop-off at your hotel.

Loved this tour! It was the perfect way to get around to a bunch on places from Toronto and Niagara Falls was absolutely stunning. We had plenty of time in each place and it was very easy to always know where your driver was without being on a guided tour. Would definitely recommend!

Trip was great, guide was great, lunch was great, excellent value for money. Trip was truncated from the notes due to the fact it was winter, but in my view there are fewer crowds so nicer to see the falls. Shame the guide felt the need to ask for tips as I would have freely given them anyway.

A fantastic tour. Our guide Grant was knowledgable and entertaining. His knowledge in regards to all the areas we went to was exceptional. It was a very cold day with snow falling all day, this just added to the mystique of the falls. Some vision of the sites was diminished due to the weather but that was not the fault of the your company. The meal at the Sheraton was very good. Buffet lunch with plenty to choose from. We toured at a quiet time of the year but I could imagine it would be very busy during summer. Great tour, worthwhile doing it.

This is just what I needed. Someone else to take over all the organization and details. I'd been on the road for a month and needed a rest. I got that with Emile and his humourous wording up for us. He was ever present with information and details for us to get the most out of our day...a yummy meal overlooking the falls, a drenching trip on the Hornblower right up to the falls hot day so drenching was welcome and free time to get closer to the Canadian side of the magnificent 'Thunder Falls'. Thanks Emile. Loved your book and your committment. Ozzi Anni
