What You Can Expect
Your full-day tour from Toronto takes you in air-conditioned comfort through the breathtaking scenery of the orchard-laden Niagara Peninsula to Niagara Falls. You'll get to see as well as experience the grandeur beauty of the Niagara Falls from the Canadian side. Do your own thing at the falls for the afternoon (approx. 3 hours) but don't forget to take a ride on the Hornblower Niagara Cruises boat, included in the cost of the tour. If the boats aren't operating (end October to mid April depending on weather conditions), you can experience the spectacular presentation on the falls at the Imax Theater.
Your freedom visit to Niagara Falls continues by coach to the stunning Whirlpool Rapids observation deck. You'll visit the Floral Clock, then travel through the picturesque historic community of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Your day trip to Niagara Falls from Toronto concludes with a stop at a local winery.
Excellent tour, the falls were just out of this world! If you own a good weather jacket, bring it for the boat trip as their ponchos won't do you much good next to the mighty falls! We also really enjoyed Niagara-on-the-lake and the visit to the Pillitteri winery. It was suitably timed if it wasn't delayed by the helicopter ride booked as an extra by few people. The freedom day trip gave us the opportunity to have a picnic in the parc overlooking the falls, rather than being stuck in a restaurant, which was ideal. Guide seemed knowledgeable although it felt like she was confusing herself at times.
We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Our tour guide and driver were very knowledgeable and quite entertaining. Our time at the falls was great even though it was very crowded because our bus dropped us off right in front of the falls and since we were provided our tickets for boat ride, we did not have to wait in long lines to buy tickets for boat, which is awesome ride. Wish we would have had more time in Niagara by the Lake but it also started raining so turned out ok. Could have done without the winery stop since it was more about buying wine than touring the winery. Nice, comfortable ride to and from Toronto.....
