Get things started with a convenient hotel pickup in a comfortable sightseeing vehicle, complete with an expert guide who knows everything there is to know about Niagara Falls.

The ultimate Niagara Falls activity is a Hornblower cruise to the edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. No trip to the falls is complete without it. Grab a poncho and get up close and personal with the rushing water. Feel the cool spray and hear the powerful sound. This is the experience of a lifetime.

Then take an equally exciting “Journey Behind the Falls” to explore the scenic tunnels below and behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Make no mistake, thrill seekers — this is as close to the falls as anyone wants to be. The sound is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand back, or in this case stand just close enough to feel the power. It’s exhilarating.

Enjoy the view from above all of Niagara’s natural and man-made attractions on a helicopter ride, flying directly over top of the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then along the curve of the Horseshoe Falls.

Take an exciting ride up to the observation deck at the top of a Niagara Falls masterpiece, the majestic Skylon Tower. Enjoy the incredible view of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls — the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls from 775 feet (236 meters) up in the air. Then enjoy lunch at the Summit Suite Buffet at Skylon Tower

Additional stops include Whirlpool State Park, the Niagara Falls hydroelectric generating plants, and the famous Floral Clock, one of the largest in the world, among others.

I purchased four Tickets for this Ultimate Niagara Falls Tour plus Helicopter Ride and Skylon Tower Lunch. The ground tour of the Canadian side was well delivered and we had an excellent guide. The Skylon Tower lunch was very good, but a little crowded.The weather was bright and clear, although a little windy. Apparently it was too windy for the Helicopter Ride, and this part of our package was cancelled. This was very disappointing as we were visiting from Australia . I applied to Viator for a refund of the Helicopter Flight component of the tour (about half of the cost). Although Viator acknowledged my claim and advised that it would take a couple of weeks to process, I have not heard from Viator since submitting my claim and am still waiting for a result. In the absence of any response from Viator regarding my request to refund payment for tour services not delivered, I cannot recommend this tour.

Hello, That is very unfortunate about the helicopters not flying for you. Can you please email us at info@seesight-tours.com and provide your tour reservation name and date? We would like to make sure Viator issues the partial refund of the tour. Much appreciated, Chris.

My wife and I wanted to get away from the normal every day life in central NY plus we hardly ever get away and have fun so I surprised her, for our 17th anniversary with a weekend getaway to Niagara Falls, on Canada side, which I have never been there and she had been, as a child. I ended up getting the package deal for us both, so we can have the joy and experience and memory of a lifetime and we did!! It was such a great trip and experience and our tour guide Brandon, was excellent, from start to finish, he was very knowledgeable on everything and we also met 2 other couples, who were here from Germany, that we now call friends. They too were great people, to get to know, the day we spent together. The behind the falls was great, boat ride was wet but terriffic, helicopter ride was so cool and fun and lunch at the towwr was top notch and good! What a great time we had and we won't forget this and will be back again, prob in 2020 or 2021. Thank you.
