What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls Evening Lights Day Trip from Toronto

Friday fireworks at Niagara Falls

Your journey to Niagara Falls begins in the afternoon with pickup from your downtown Toronto hotel for the scenic ride through Niagara Peninsula, a lush region spotted with orchards and vineyards. Depending on time, you may stop for a tasting at a local winery before continuing to the lovely and historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. From here, board the lovely cruise ship and take a promenade along the deck as you float along the majestic Niagara River. Enjoy a wet and wild ride, or find a seat in the cabin, where you can relax and admire unobstructed views of Whirlpool Rapids, the Table Rock Centre and the epic Horseshoe Falls. 

Throughout the tour, a friendly crew member will escort you to the Fallsview Dining Room. There you’ll savor a gourmet dinner buffet while taking in the thundering base of the falls and the captivating, colorful evening illumination show. Friday or Sunday shows includes a free fireworks display!

Your tour ends with return coach service to your Toronto hotel, arriving late in the evening.

Please note: This seasonal tour only occurs May through October.

This was billed as better than the day trip, having not done a day trip I can't say, however this experience was frankly outstanding, the quick visit to the winery for ice wine was great, loads of time at the falls, no queue at the boat trip, stunning, you will get wet, guaranteed, but not surprising. The buffet was outstanding. Loads of free time as well to look around. Not to forget the tour guide who was keen, knowledgeable and very amusing, this was a holiday of a lifetime and this trip did not disappoint.... If you can afford it the helicopter option is worth every penny.

Really enjoyed, picked up right from hotel no worries. Tour guide told us exactly what to do and where to be so we had plenty of time to see the town out on our own to do some shopping and fun things.

The vineyard visit was OK as a break in the journey, but the wine very expensive. However, the falls were spectacular and the buffet dinner superb. Boat trip was included and there was plenty of time to explore. Don't normally like coach travel, but this was comfortable. Worth the money.

Wonderful trip - food fantastic, falls spectacular, fireworks beautiful. Only would advise that the seats at the back of the coach against the back wall were very uncomfortable for the long journey back !

I like how our tourguide David sorry, I might got it wrong, i am really bad with names who was very professional and knowledgable, ANDDDDD humours. You know you dont always remember everything the tourguide covered during the trip, however, you knew at least you should be given adequate information and knowledge while you were visiting amazing places like this. The trip was great. We went for wine-tasting, no pressuring buying any of the products there which I really appreciated you know what I am referring to. But they were nice wine, and I regretted that I did not get one. The buffet was very good I would say. I've been to other buffets provided by tours, they sucked. This was in Sheraton, with nice view and very good food. Plenty of time after dinner to chill and walk around. Amazing boat trip to the Falls as well. We were blessed by the amazing sunny weather, so got beautiful photos with rainbow over the Falls.
Just one thing, I was not very impressed by the fireworks. It was nice over the Falls, but just a few minutes and maybe i had high expectations. It was good, but just not THAT impressed.
Anyways, nothing can be perfect. I would 100 definitely recommend this trip to all my friends who'd like to go Niagara Falls. Thanks for the great trip! P.S. Greyhound service was good as well.

Great experience, I wish I could give more than 5 stars!

This was my first time coming to Canada with my girlfriend, and of course we wanted to see what the falls were all about, after doing some research, this was the best choice we could have chosen!

David, our tour guide, was excellent, very friendly and out going, explaining any questions and giving us background knowledge on Canada and the events that happened in earlier years.

We boarded the bus at the grey hound station, only a 2 minute walk from our Chelsea hotel.

Departure from the bus station, our first stop was at a wine yard. I am not a big wine drinking myself, nor my girlfriend, but we were given a rare wine to try, called Ice wine which was amazing! You stop at this wine yard for approx 20 minutes, giving you just enough time to try wine, and shop around the gift shop where you can purchase wine, glasses etc.

Leaving the wine yard, we than made our way to Niagra Falls. Arriving at the falls, we were given just under an hour to get out and get right up near the falls to take pictures, look around, and shop at the gift stores they have right on site.

Coming back to the bus, we were than driven to a high class hotel, to eat at a gorgeous buffet. They had every food imaginable, musscles, shrimp, chicken, pork, rice, veggies, pizza, pasta etc! The chefs were very friendly and amazing cooks, everything I ate was perfect. The deserts are cheese cake, chocolate cake, carrot cake, donuts, chocolate water fall etc!

After dinner, we than all met up in the lobby and walked towards the falls again, this time being a bit later. We boarded a ship that took us right up into the falls for great pictures, thank god they gave us a poncho becuase you get SOAKED! The winds are like a hurricane!

Once off the boat, you are given approx. 3 hours to do what you want, at this time its night time, and the falls are lit up. At 10PM they set off large fireworks over the lit up falls which was awesome for pictures!
