Full description
Leave Toronto earlier and get back sooner on a fun and leisurely day trip to Niagara Falls. Relax in the comfort of an air-conditioned bus under the expert care of your engaging local guide. Your adventure begins when you meet your guide at the convenient downtown meeting point.

Set off on the 90-minute scenic drive into the Niagara Region. Your driver will share their local knowledge along the way. Your first stop is a structured wine tasting including ice wine at an award-winning winery. You'll also visit a country market and explore the vineyards.

Climb back on board and drive through the historic colonial architecture of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Take in the sights of the Niagara River and million-dollar homes along the scenic Niagara Parkway. Pause for guided photo stops at the Floral Clock, Hydro Power Station, Whirlpool Rapids, and the Niagara Gorge before arriving at Niagara Falls.

Upgrade to include the seasonal Voyage to the Falls boat tour and sail into the heart of the world-famous falls. Your guide will escort you to the cruise departure point so you can benefit from expedited access to the boat boarding area. When the cruise is not operating, you'll instead ride to the top of Skylon Tower's observation deck for unbeatable panoramic views of the Falls. 

Pending on the tour option selected, enjoy up to 3-hours free time in Niagara Falls to explore the local attractions. Your tour concludes with a quiet and cool return to Toronto before 5:30 PM, in time for you to relax before your evening plans.

They are the best! I booked the day before and Michael did everything to arrange the pick up at the hotel. He was always checking with us! And Tony was the best driver/tour guide, super friendly and punctual!Even when we have a problem to come back to downtown (highway was close on thanks giving) they manage everything perfectly to help us. Thank you guys, it was an amazing experience!

Disappointed to waste time to visit a winemaker before Niagara. I would like to use this time for the Niagara. On the way back the driver put all out on the metro station. Exscuse it will take longer regarding the traffic. On Google drive I checked it shows just 5 minutes longer as planned. Metro ticket need to buy myself. The boat tour was amazing and the Niagara place.

Possibly too many stops on way to the Falls

Trip spoilt by return travel difficulties. Road closed so dropped off at Metro station to travel on rail system that we had not used before. Then rail line works caused us to use a busy and crowded shuttle service and finally walked the final mine because of lack of help from so called information personnel.
