What To Expect

Get things started with a convenient hotel pickup in a comfortable sightseeing vehicle, complete with an expert guide who knows everything there is to know about Niagara Falls.

The ultimate Niagara Falls activity is a Hornblower cruise to the edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. No trip to the falls is complete without it. Grab a poncho and get up close and personal with the rushing water. Feel the cool spray and hear the powerful sound. This is the experience of a lifetime.

Then take an equally exciting “Journey Behind the Falls” to explore the scenic tunnels below and behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Make no mistake, thrill seekers — this is as close to the falls as anyone wants to be. The sound is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand back, or in this case stand just close enough to feel the power. It’s exhilarating.

Enjoy the view from above all of Niagara’s natural and man-made attractions on a helicopter ride, flying directly over top of the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then along the curve of the Horseshoe Falls.

Take an exciting ride up to the observation deck at the top of a Niagara Falls masterpiece, the majestic Skylon Tower. Enjoy the incredible view of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls — the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls from 775 feet (236 meters) up in the air. Then enjoy a casual fine dining lunch in the Revolving Dining Room at Skylon Tower.

Additional stops include Whirlpool State Park, the Niagara Falls hydroelectric generating plants, and the famous Floral Clock, one of the largest in the world, among others.

Dufferin Islands Park (Pass By)

Explore 10 acres of paradise, where wooden footbridges connect small, secluded islands. You may be surprised at the wildlife you find in this popular escape, Niagara’s hidden secret.

Journey Behind the Falls

Descend 45 meters (150 ft.) by elevator, where a short tunnel gives access to two outdoor observation decks and two portals located directly behind the Falls. At Journey Behind the Falls, you will experience the awesome spectacle of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down to the basin below. During summer daylight hours, over 2,800 cubic meters of water thunders over the brink every second, travelling 65 kilometers per hour!

Great Niagara experience
Baron_D, Jan 2023
The Tour Guide from See Sight was AMAZIN Very knowledgeable hospitable. and kind, the tour includes Way More than advertise, they took us to the Niagara Tunnels, the Niagara Fury, Butterfly conservatory the Lunch was amazing at Skylon Tower with an expectacular View SADLY we were told the helicopter could not fly due to low clouds in the area But I will still give them a Great review service was more than expected
Different guide would have made it great
Kelly_P, Nov 2022
It started with the guide yelling at me for opening the car door. Then fighting with me over the booking. The booking specifically said “in November you will see the butterflies instead of a boat ride”. So we did the boat ride the day before. - we were fine not seeing the butterflies but didn’t want to do the boat again. We didn’t enjoy the guide at all. Crabby. Not personal. However the tour itself was great. Loved the helicopter ride and tunnels and lunch was great.
Amazing seeing falls from all angles!
Jenny_F, Oct 2022
Our tour guide was amazing! It was so relaxing to have him drive us around, skip the lines, & manage each adventure for us! We loved seeing the falls from varying views! Helicopter ride at the end of the day was the cherry on top!
Benny the driver was an excellent tour guide !
Yadira_A, Oct 2022
This tour is a great opportunity to get to know the majestic Niagara fall in Canada side You will get incredible views from the different angle!!!! Recommend
So glad we did it!
Deborah_P, Sep 2022
This was a fantastic tour. Our guide, Judit, was great. She gave us a heads up about being on the boat and where to stand so we wouldn't get wet, because we had the lunch afterwards and would have frozen in the a/c. The guys at the helicopter were great, too. They were going to sit us a certain way in the helicopter, but once they realized my friend was the one out of us who was going to take the pictures, they switched it up. The pilot was fun, too. I have never been on a helicopter tour that took so many banking turns. That was fun!
Knowing the paradise
Pablo_G, Sep 2022
We chose this trip to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was one of the best things we have done as a family. Met all our expectations.
Dan the Man was great!
Timothy_R, Sep 2022
Great tour, coordination, scheduling, etc. no wasted time. We saw all the sight without waiting in lines, finding the sight, or parking. Really made the experience extremely efficient. Thanks Dan the Man!
Experience of the lifetime
Janie_G, Sep 2022
This is an experience of lifetime! Definitely worth it to see Niagara Falls by land, boat and air. Khalid is such an awesome tour guide.
Bucket list Niagra Falls Brilliant
david_r, Aug 2022
Hard to choose a favourite, but if pushed for me the boat ride was great followed very close by the helicopter. Our guide for the tour Erica was brilliant very knowledgeable and made the tour even more enjoyable certainly a credit to the company
Behind, In, Above and Over what more could you ask?
Neil_S, Aug 2022
What a fantastic day. This tour took all the hassle and stress out of trying to do all the major attractions we wanted to complete during our brief stay In Niagara. Erica our tour guide was great. Friendly and knowledgeable. Each activity was great in its own way from Behind the falls, getting to feel the power of the falls close up. The River Cruise putting you in the middle of the falls surrounded by the power (and spray!) of the falls. Then the relaxed lunch at the tower overlooking the falls. ( The food was great too.) But the icing on the day has to be the helicopter ride over the falls, our front seat view was just an amazing experience. The whole day will stay with us as a fantastic memory.
Best Tour Package
Kimberly_G, Aug 2022
Samara was a great guide. I am glad I booked this package instead of booking individual attractions (did not have to deal with parking and ticket lines). The helicopter ride was the highlight for us.

I highly recommend this tour. Great way to see the falls from every vantage point. We only had one day to explore and this tour made it possible to fit everything in. Out tour guide Jay was excellent.

Biggest Bang for your Buck!
Tracy_M, Aug 2022
From the moment I booked online I was completely taken care of. I was constantly receiving emails letting me know everything was all set up. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel until the momet we were dropped off we were treated like royalty. Stephanie was absolutely amazing! She took care of everything including pre-ordering our lunch at the tower. I will 100% book again and I will spread the word! Thank you! I give 10 stars out of 5! It was that good

I recommend .. such a wonderful trip..and My tour guide was Martina.. such a sweetheart.. she is very knowledgeable..
First time at Niagara Falls
Pavel_K, Aug 2022
The trip started on time. Our guide was driving safely and knew many facts about the Falls. He was able to plan the trip to avoid long waiting times on attractions. Helicopter, Boat, Journey behind Falls and Skylon gave us nice overall picture, exactly what we needed for our first time at the Falls. We will definitely go with SeeSightTours next time.
We had a great time! Thanks Stephanie!
Warren_B, Jul 2022
The absolute best part of the trip was the time spent with my bride and our tour guide, Stephanie! She was great! Very knowledgeable and complete with our tour. She knows the history of her territory. I really appreciate all the time she took with our group. Thank you Stephanie.
Extensive tour with an amazing tour operator!
Karen_H, Jul 2022
Our tour guide picked us up.. his first day on the job after training. Andrew, a really nice young gentleman made sure that he made it a very pleasurable experience for everyone. He was a great tour guide and we'll go far with the company. Request him if you can. He was awesome. The trip itself was amazing. Everything they advertised and more.
Wonderful Trip + Amazing tour guide
Jugal_B, Jul 2022
The tour package was awesome and worth every penny. All the sighting were wonderful. We were a family of 7 and we were given a separate guide. Our tour guide Erica was simply amazing and very knowledgeable. She told us all the history realted to Niagara falls and guided us very well in the tour. She was very punctual and helpful. Thank you for the amazing services and tour. Special thanks to Erica our tour guide.
