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.

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!

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.
