  • Toronto: Niagara Falls Day Trip

    1. Toronto: Niagara Falls Day Trip

    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. ...

    The trip was organized and even when the meeting point changed it was communicated well in advance. The itinerary had changed a bit due to the winery portion being changed, but I honestly loved going to Niagara On The Lake even more ! Most importantly I felt safe during the entire trip, and I would definitely recommend it to others.

    We had a great day. We went behind the Falls which was superb-the noise, the views and the whole atmosphere were awesome. The boat to the falls was a fabulous experience too and on top deck we were drenched! It may have been better to be on the lower deck and we may have seen more because there wouldn’t have been as much spray! We also opted for lunch which was a very tasty and plentiful 3 courses and served by friendly staff. We were lucky to visit on a beautiful sunny day and sat outside, facing the falls to have our lunch. We had an excellent driver/guide in Fabio. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and helpful and pointed out many places of interest. We stopped for several photo opportunities and our trip was enhanced by Fabio’s input. We felt there was enough time at each stop and even if you don’t do behind the falls or the boat or lunch, it is a beautiful area to take in the magnificent scenery, have a refreshment break, walk around and if it’s your bag, see a few shops.

It was a smooth pick up and ride! We felt very safe! The bus was comfortable and the Tourguide was awesome! We had 3 hours of free time at the Niagara Falls. We could have used a little more time, but we managed to see all that we wanted to see. We had after that a few more stops that were also beautiful! The wine tasting at the end was very delicious.

I attended the domed jetboat tour. I signed up online, an easy process. I received clear instructions on what was expected of me, and directions on how to get to their site. We were lucky, in that we had good weather, which made the experience that much more enjoyable.

Out Guide Fabio our experience even better. He was very knowledgeable and took care of everyone on the trip. Stopped at nice places and helped Click pictures for all. Niagara's trip experience was awesome. I recommend this trip to all.

Small-group excursion (6 people) with enough time at the falls to follow a walk along the river and a boat ride (unforgettable even if very wet!). Return after lunch, stopping at each interesting spot.

The trip was great, the driver was very nice, the boat trip a must, you just get wet. The only thing you can complain about is the little time spent on the falls. Greetings from Leipzig
