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.

My second trip with viator and as a before well worth the money.We joined up with the coach at the coach station as it was close to where we were staying.Our guide JUDY was amazing and a lovely woman.Told us all about herself,her background and and gave us all the history of Toronto and then moved on to the story of the falls.She genuinely cares for peoples safety and that everyone is happy and having a good day.Viator,when this woman decides to call it a day ye are going to struggle to replace her.Her knowledge and dedication is second to none.The trip itself was excellent a quick stop to a winery was enjoyed by all.then onto to the town of Niagara on the Lake.Lunch was in the Sheraton on the 12th floor.the views were excellent and the food choice was the same.something for everyone.We then did the Hornblower out to the Falls which was amazing..Plenty of time allowed for every aspect of the trip.If you want a day trip to Niagara then book this you will not be dissapointed. There is also the option of flying over the falls but it is not pushed on you at all..Great day and will always be remembered.

Absolutely fantastic, you need to go on the boat to really experience Niagara falls at it's best. Our guide Judy Holland was very friendly and very knowledgeable. The whole day was fun and enjoyable.

This was a very well organised tour and very good value for money. The tour guide and driver were both very helpful and went out of their way to make the trip special for all clients. The buffet lunch at the Sheraton Hotel was very nice and the views from the restaurant were spectacular. All in, a trip well worth it.

The Niagara Falls Day trip exceeded our expectation. Our guide Crystal and driver Tim were fantastic. They kept the crowd entertained with various bits of trivia and humor. In this tour, you get a lot of value for your money. The visit to the vineyards to sample ice wine and lunch buffet at Grand Buffet Fallsview were a pleasant surprise. There was good amount of time to see the various attractions near the falls and even squeeze in some souvenirs shopping. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in spending a day at Niagara Falls while in Toronto.

The whole tour was brilliant made even better by our excellent guide Judy and driver BJ.
The wine tasting experience was good the sample of Canadian Ice Wine was lovely and there was no pressure to buy, they just seemed very happy to show off their wares.
The stop at the town of Niagara on the Lake was great and another half an hour there would have been appreciated.
The Fallsview buffet in the Sheraton at Niagra was very nice and the selection of food was great, this is an aspect of the tour which was not heavily publicised but is a great selling point as the view is quite spectacular.
The Cruise was fantastic a real experience and not to be missed.
The helicopter excursion again not heavily publicised was well worth doing and there was no pressure to take it. All in all a really great day not to be missed.

A well planned day out from start to finish. Pick up from hotel right on time. Great wine tasting, great lunch, plenty of time to view the falls, optional helicopter trip was fantastic and well worth doing. Are guide Judy was the best.

Fabulous day trip to the falls. Excellent guide with loads of information and facts related to places all along the route. There was time to wander on your own and take pictures as well as go into the tunnels under the falls, have a lunch that was extremely good value for money with so much choice. I also took the helicopter ride and it was awesome, perhaps helped by a sunny blue sky, would highly recommend this tour with the helicopter trip which easily makes up for not going on the boat still too much ice coming down to have the boats out.

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!
