Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This time-saving tour includes queue-free entrance to three top attractions on the Canadian side.
After a hotel pickup, head to the central part of Niagara Falls with a guide, who will provide a detailed tour of the Canadian side of the falls, offering stories, history and fun facts along the way.
Start with an exciting ride up to the observation deck at the top of the 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 it’s down the elevator and off to the lookout point at the brink of the Horseshoe Falls, arguably the most popular spot to see the falls rolling over the edge of a cliff.
Next, experience the Journey Behind the Falls excursion, where the sound is like thunder and the view is unparalleled. See the Horseshoe Falls rumble from 13 stories above — dropping over 700,000 gallons of water every second at 40 miles per hour.
Then, during summer and fall months, take a Hornblower cruise for an up-close look at the falls. In winter and spring months, enjoy the Butterfly Conservatory and Niagara Fury. Afterward, continue to the Whirlpool Rapids, the largest series of standing waves in North America, for a whitewater walk and a look at the Niagara Parks Floral Clock, a unique timepiece that has been photographed almost as often as Niagara Falls.
Should hunger strike along the way, there are a number of food stands to grab a quick snack or beverage.
The intricate designs on the face of the Floral Clock are created with up to 16,000 carpet bedding plants and are changed twice each year. The planted face of the Floral Clock is maintained by Niagara Parks horticulture staff, while the mechanism inside is kept in working order by Ontario Hydro.

Perfect private tour.

This tour was a blast and our guide was awesome. The best part was the timing of our vacation. Most tourists visit later in the spring and summer so it was just the two of us and our guide and was a lovely personal tour. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly. Would highly recommend this experience, especially during this time of year.
It was a great tour to see all parts of Niagara Falls. It was a perfect size of us. Just wish more history was provided about Niagara since our tour guide never stayed with us to give us more information.
It's a reasonable package if you don't like to walk, wait in line or worry about parking. Otherwise the price is a bit more than paying for the individual attractions, and some of the descriptions are misleading. The Beck Power Generating station says includes admission, but we just drove past the building. The floral clock had no flowers nad was another waste of time.
We had a wonderful time on this tour. We didn't know it at the time of the booking, but we ended up with a private tour! Our tour guide, Robbie, was awesome, courteous and friendly! He was not only informative about the tourist spots along the way, he gave us a lot of background information about the area and we had great conversation about many of the differences between the US and Canada, given that we were from the US.
We were staying on the Canadian side of the falls and did not want to go over the boarder and back, based on other reviews stating that some of the tours experienced long delays at the bridge so we booked this tour which included the Hornblower ride into the falls, the Skylon Tower, and the Journey Behind the Falls. Our tour included all of the attractions that we wanted to see and then some. It was convenient to have transportation to all of the sites with pick up and drop off at the hotel. We had ample time to explore the areas and the tour took about 4 hours. I would highly recommend booking this tour.
This was a wonderful small group tour - just seven of us. Our Guide, Nick, was amazing! So knowledgeable about the Falls and the area and nothing was too much trouble. The highlight is definitely the Hornblower Boat ride, followed by the Behind the Falls visit but all of the sights visited are well worth it. I highly recommend this tour.
I would like to commend our tour guide Kaleb. He's very informative and courteous. You can clearly see how passionate he is on his job. He is very knowledgeable and gave us an in-depth tour of Niagara. We are only a group of 6. He created a good atmosphere for the group even when we don't know each other. The itineraries covered the highlights of Niagara. Overall, it's an amazing an fun trip. Definitely worth it.
We were fortunate to have Brandon as our guide. He was excellent and full of meaningful information and was able answer every question that was asked. He was able to get us to each "stop" on the tour in a timely manner and handled all the ticketing and logistics in getting us quickly and efficiently into the attraction. That alone was worth the cost of the tour. We managed to by-pass some long lines and what would have been parking difficulties if we had tried to do this on our own. Brandon anticipated precisely the amount of time need to fully appreciate each stop on the tour. There was no rushing but also no trying to "kill" excess time before proceeding onto the next stop. It was pretty clear that Brandon enjoys his role as tour guide. He is an excellent ambassador for Viator and the Niagara Falls area.
