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.

Stopover and visit the historic town of Niagara on the Lake on your own. 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 (you must choose the Guided Day Trip including Voyage to the Falls Boat Cruise option for the cruise to be included). Your guide will escort you to the cruise departure point so you can benefit from expedited access to the boat boarding area.

Practical and well organized tour, very prepared guide, we were able to get on the boat at the best time of the day when everyone was having lunch, in this way the wait was almost nil. The only black and embarrassing point was the explicit request for a tip for the guide and driver. I understand that it is a custom and I agree when I sit down in a restaurant to give it, but for a service paid from start to finish to a tourist agency, I honestly do not find it necessary to add more money.

We had a lot of fun with our guide Michael and learned a lot about the region. On the bus ride to Niagara Falls, there is a 1 hour layover in the town of "Niagara on the Lake" which has great historic buildings with small shops. At Niagara Falls you have another 1 hour at leisure, then another 2 hours in which you can take the boat trip if booked and the rest of the time you can still spend freely. The boat trip very close to the falls should not be missed. Stunning!!! Be sure to book tickets for the boat trip at the same time, so you save yourself the long queue.

Une expérience à vivre au moins une fois dans sa vie! Le guide était très prévenant, très souriant. Le groupe a été servi en blague, ça fait du bien de voir des gens rire. Voyageant seule, il a pris des photos pour moi et nous avons eu l'occasion de parler. Comme tous les expéditions en visite guidée, tout était timé. Expérience courte dommage... La visite en bateau vaut vraiment le coup mais préparez vous à recevoir de l'eau (voire beaucoup d'eau, heureusement on vous offre des imperméables par la compagnie du bateau), à rigoler avec les autres passagers et à saluer les américains qui passent à proximité. Encore merci pour les conseils du guide qui étaient très utiles ! C'est une expérience que je ne risquerais pas d'oublier d'aussi tôt!
