Begin with pickup at your downtown or Toronto airport hotel, and listen to stories about Niagara’s history, native people, and geography as you drive the scenic Niagara Parkway. Get panoramic views of Niagara Falls from Table Rock, see the Whirlpool Rapids and get an amazing view of Goat Island and the American Falls.
Board the Hornblower boat for a misty ride to the edge of the falls: this is the perfect place to feel the power of the churning water up close (April - November). Pause for a Fallsview Buffet lunch at Penthouse Sheraton Fallsview Restaurant (if tour and lunch option is selected), whose floor-to-ceiling glass windows look directly at the waterfall.
Explore 19th-century architecture in the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, where you’ll have independent time to explore at your own pace—the old fashioned community is the only place in Canada with a ‘Lord Mayor,’ and was a longtime destination on the Underground Railroad. Meet back up with the group and guide to visit a local winery and sample Ontario wines. A complimentary wine tasting is included. This tour concludes with return transfer to your Toronto Hotel.
