A comprehensive tour of the Canadian side of Niagara Falls lets you see one of the world’s most iconic natural attractions at its best, and this guided tour comes with round-trip transport for your convenience. Along the way, take in aerial views from the observation deck at Skylon Tower, get super close to Horseshoe Falls on the Maid of the Mist or Journey Behind the Falls excursion (seasonal options), and visit a handful of less-frequented vantage points such as Table Rock Welcome Centre.
What to Expect
After hotel pickup, head to Skylon Tower and ascend 520 feet (158 meters) in a glass elevator to the popular observation tower. Appreciate incredible views of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls, Bridal Veil Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and the American Falls.

Then, don a poncho for the popular Maid of the Mist cruise, which takes your right past the falls from May through October. Visitors from November through April take the Journey Behind the Falls excursion instead, which visits two observation decks and portals right behind Horseshoe Falls.

Other tour highlights include a trip to Queen Victoria Park, Table Rock Welcome Centre, the Lower Niagara River and Gorge, the Upper Canadian Rapids from Third Sister Island, and Whirlpool State Park.

Good fun experience

Brilliant thing to do, we did get a little wet, but we were also standing right at the front. The falls look spectacular from the boat.

Ask for Dayna as your tour guide, if you can. Well worth it! Wasn’t just the boat but a very nice tour of the area.

Best to call the company anyway to confirm as you have to let them know which hotel you are getting picked up from even if you wrote it when booking.
