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 November). 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.

Fantastic trip! I booked small group early bird tour to Niagara Falls from Toronto. Guide Heather was punctual to pick me up, she was friendly, had lots of knowledge and was driving safely! Everything was on time and we had wonderful weather. The group was very small and there was zero hassle. I will never forget this day, and will definitley book more tours with GetYourGuide!

This was a very wonderful trip to Niagara Falls. We were picked up from our hotel at 7:45 am. Our tour group was made up of 7 people including our guide Cameron. The drive to Niagara was smooth and our guide made the ride very pleasant. Upon arrival we headed to the tower were we could see the falls from above. It was a beautiful sight. Then we went to behind the falls and later the boat ride which was an experience of a life time! The whole experience was unforgettable. Our guide Cameron explained in detail what was expected at each event. Before heading back to Toronto our guide took us to see other important places near by and he gave us some time on our own to explore. In general this was an amazing trip. Thank you!

Absolutely amazing tour! Highly recommend her! She was an amazing guide and was super accommodating. She went the extra mile to make sure we had everything Canada wise that day (from food to adventure), she was knowledgeable (from the area), and soooo nice. I’m a solo traveler and didn’t feel lonely at all.
