Optional add-on: Hornblower Cruise Boat Ride
Enjoy a scenic walking tour of the Canadian side of Niagara Falls between the picturesque Dufferin Islands and the majestic Niagara Falls.
Your Niagara Falls Walking Tour begins at the meeting point at Dufferin Islands. Your guide will meet you outside and take you on a walk through of the area. You will marvel at the picturesque trails and be pleasantly surprised at how secluded the islands feel despite being so close to the Falls. The Dufferin Islands are truly one of Niagara’s best hidden gems. 

After your walk through the Islands, your guide will take you on a stroll along the Niagara Parkway to view famous Niagara landmarks including the Old Scow, Upper Rapids, the power stations, the Illumination Tower and of course, the Niagara Falls themselves. Your knowledgeable guide will share lots of fun facts about the area and will be sure to make sure you have time for photos at each stop so you can remember these sights and share them with loved ones. 

Along the way you will also pass by the Nikola Tesla Monument and catch a glimpse at Goat Island, NY from the Canadian-side of Niagara Falls. 

At the end of your tour, your guide will bring you to the Hornblower loading area in the heart of Niagara’s tourism district. If you’ve chosen to take part in the cruise, you will continue onward to a refreshing, socially-distanced boat ride into the mist. For guests not taking part in the cruise, you will be able to continue exploring the beautiful city of Niagara Falls on your own.
