Full description

Visit Niagara Falls on an immersive guided tour. Embark on an exhilarating journey that takes you through tunnels behind the Falls and take a cruise on the famous Hornblower.

Start your tour bright and early with pick-up from downtown Toronto and make the 1.5–hour drive to Niagara Falls.

Upon arrival, take a trip to the observation deck of Skylon Tower, 520 feet or 160 meters above the ground, to experience some of the most awe-inspiring views of Niagara River, American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls.  Next, head to Journey Behind the Falls for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Falls. Explore a series of cave-like tunnels that allow you to see behind Niagara Falls.

The final stop on your tour is a trip aboard the Hornblower Cruise "Voyage to the Falls" (May to October). Set foot on the Hornblower Cruise boat and head out onto the waters of the gorge. Get so close to the Falls that it feels like you could put your hand out and touch them. In addition to the amazing stops on the tour, take the opportunity to see and experience the shops, street vendors, restaurants, and other attractions in Niagara Falls for 1 hour before you head home.

Head back to Toronto from Niagara Falls to Toronto, and take time to relax on the 1.5–hour drive. Depending on traffic, arrive back to the city by approximately 4:00 PM.

Very well organized and amazing day. Only reason I don't rate it excellent is the fact I got an email informing pick-up would have been 6.30 to 7.00am, so I woke up in time while pick up happened at 7.50. Not nice is you landed the night before.. A part this all was extremely well organized, our guide was very good and knowledgeable and just loved to skip the queue.

Our guide was Kaleb (with a K as he'd say :)) and boy did I have a good time! Having booked off-season, and hence missing out on activities like the boat cruise, I was initially a little apprehensive about how good the trip would be. But our highly knowledgeable and friendly guide more than made up for it. He showed us pretty much everything Niagara falls has to offer, gave us a lot of very interesting trivia and tidbits about the place and in general ensured the trip was loads of fun! Being a small group, we were able to make a few extra stops for nice scenic views, pictures etc. This being the early bird tour, we barely had any other tourists and so didn't have to wait anywhere. As far as the main attractions go, the Skylon Tower and the Butterfly conservatory were the best IMO. On the way back to TOR, the somewhat boring journey was offset by some nice friendly convos I had with Kaleb. A day well spent!

Great Guiding

Whilst pricier than other Niagara tours, skipping the lines & getting straight on the attractions was a definite plus. Also, it was a small group of 4 in my tour & the guide Hassan was very informative & welcoming making for a relaxed trip. All topped off with the falls themselves - you’d be mad to miss it!
