Full description

Visit Niagara Falls on an immersive guided tour. Embark on an exhilarating journey that takes you through tunnels behind the Falls and take a cruise on the famous Hornblower.

Start your tour bright and early with pick-up from downtown Toronto and make the 1.5–hour drive to Niagara Falls.

Upon arrival, take a trip to the observation deck of Skylon Tower, 520 feet or 160 meters above the ground, to experience some of the most awe-inspiring views of Niagara River, American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls.  Next, head to Journey Behind the Falls for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Falls. Explore a series of cave-like tunnels that allow you to see behind Niagara Falls.

The final stop on your tour is a trip aboard the Hornblower Cruise "Voyage to the Falls" (May to November). Set foot on the Hornblower Cruise boat and head out onto the waters of the gorge. Get so close to the Falls that it feels like you could put your hand out and touch them. In addition to the amazing stops on the tour, take the opportunity to see and experience the shops, street vendors, restaurants, and other attractions in Niagara Falls for 1 hour before you head home.

Head back to Toronto from Niagara Falls to Toronto, and take time to relax on the 1.5–hour drive. Depending on traffic, arrive back to the city by approximately 4:00 PM.

Fantastic trip! I booked small group early bird tour to Niagara Falls from Toronto. Guide Heather was punctual to pick me up, she was friendly, had lots of knowledge and was driving safely! Everything was on time and we had wonderful weather. The group was very small and there was zero hassle. I will never forget this day, and will definitley book more tours with GetYourGuide!

Unfortunately the van that was supposed to pick us up didn't have room for us anymore! The driver ordered another one, but when it didn't come after 20 minutes and our early bird tour developed into a later tour, I called the service number. The staff member was very friendly and accommodating and offered a full refund for the tour but I didn't want that as I only had 1 day in Toronto and really wanted to spend it at the falls with my daughter. So the employee organized an "Uber" and the 2 of us drove to Niagara Falls. Our tour guide Jay was already waiting for us there. Jay was very well prepared for us, already had everyone! got tickets (caves, boat, tower) for us; we never had to wait and so we could enjoy the trip to the fullest. For transportation to Toronto, Jay organized our Uber, which was already waiting for us. It was great, many thanks to the service person and to Jay!!
