Full description
Pickup is available across many central meeting points in Downtown Toronto, Mississauga, and Pearson Airport between 7:15 AM–8:15 AM. Your tour leaves Toronto early to avoid traffic and to arrive early in Niagara Falls before it gets crowded. Travel in a modern, air-conditioned minibus with a small group (6-24 people) for a more intimate experience with your local tour guide.

You will arrive in Niagara Falls around 9:30 AM where you will have 3-hours of free time to explore, view the Canadian waterfalls, and participate in optional local attractions, like a boat ride across the falls. Take advantage of your expert tour guide’s advice on how to best see the falls and hints on how to use your time. 

Next, enjoy a scenic ride (and photo opportunities) across the Niagara Parkway and stop or drive through famous sights like a local farmers market and the Niagra Whirlpool Rapids. Bring lunch with you or eat at a local restaurant of your choice. See the famous Niagara Falls ‘Clifton Hill’ strip during your free time.

Continue your day with a narrated drive through Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of Canada's most historic towns which dates back several hundred years and helped to shape Canada's heritage. Explore a country market and try local snacks or buy souvenirs (seasonal). Finish your tour with complimentary wine tasting in the Niagara Wine Region, including the famous local icewine. Return to Toronto around 4:30 PM-5:00 PM to your original location and make it back in time to enjoy dinner and a free evening in Toronto.

Very good way to get a glimpse of the falls in a day while still having the evening to enjoy yourself in Toronto. That said, I wouldn't mind a little more time being able to hang around the amusement area of the falls and Niagara on the Lake. Always seemed like there wasn't enough time to take everything in. The guide was nice and pretty laid back, though I did have a little trouble understanding him through his accent.

Driver was knowledgeable and friendly. I would have preferred more time in Niagara-by-the-Lake and less in Niagara. This time of year there are no lines for boat ride. The small town wasn’t crowded - the lunch spot, Tide & Vine, had great chowder and lobster roll. I would not choose the wine tasting either. It was a tasting in their retail space.

Very friendly driver/guide. We were in town for a medical procedure and didn’t know the city at all, the booking staff could have been a little nicer when I was asking questions. Other than that it was great.
