A visit to Niagara Falls makes for the perfect day trip from Toronto. This tour highlights the best experiences that Niagara Falls has to offer in one day and includes round-trip transportation from Toronto. You’ll get up close to the Falls on a Hornblower Niagara Cruises boat ride (seasonal, May-November), behind and underneath them at Journey Behind the Falls and from up above at the Skylon Tower. You’ll also enjoy some free time to explore on your own and a narrated driving tour through the city that highlights the area’s unique geography and history. 
Your day tour of Niagara Falls begins with pick up directly from your downtown Toronto or Toronto airport hotel before heading to Niagara Falls. 

Your first tour stop of the day will be a visit to Skylon Tower. At Skylon Tower, you’ll head up 520 ft. in a glass elevator to the observation area where you will be treated to an incredible, birds-eye view of all three Niagara Falls (Bridal Veil Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls), as well as the Niagara River and surrounding area. From this vantage point, you’ll even be able to catch a glimpse of the Toronto skyline!

Once you’re back on the ground, your next stop on the tour is a visit to Journey Behind the Falls where you will descend 125 ft (approx. 40m) to explore cave-like tunnels behind the Falls at Journey Behind the Falls. This experience is a treat for the senses as you’ll be able to not only hear the falls, but feel them as well. The tunnels lead to two observation decks, giving you the perfect photo opportunity.

Following your visit to Journey Behind the Falls, we will take you to board the Hornblower Niagara Cruises boat ride (formerly operated by Maid of the Mist, operating seasonally May-November)). On your cruise, you will sail around the Niagara gorge and get as close as possible to the Falls. You can expect to feel the refreshing mist during this boat ride - but don’t worry, you will be provided with a recyclable rain poncho.

After the Hornblower boat cruise, your guide will take you on a narrated driving tour of the city where you will learn about Niagara’s rich history and distinct geography. During the driving portion of your tour your guide will take you to several points of interest including the Dufferin Islands, the International Control Dam, the Old Scow, Whirlpool Rapids and the Floral Clock.

For the last portion of your tour, your guide will give you an hour of free time to explore the city on your own. This is the perfect time to grab a snack, take some extra pictures or pick up some souvenirs. 

At the end of your tour, your guide will bring you back to your downtown Toronto or Toronto airport hotel.
