This full-day tour of Niagara Falls begins in the afternoon, allowing you to experience the falls both during the day and illuminated at night. If you’re visiting during the summer, you’re in for a treat—fireworks light up the skies on Wednesdays and Fridays.

After pickup from your Toronto hotel, travel with your guide through the orchard-laden countryside of the Niagara peninsula and relax during a 25-mile (40-km) drive along the Niagara River from the base of Lake Ontario to Niagara Falls.

En route, hear about the area’s history and geography. Stop at highlight attractions, including the Whirlpool Spanish Aerocar, the Sir Adam Beck I Generating Station, the world’s smallest chapel, the Floral Clock, and a winery stop in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Settle in for dinner (own expense) at a restaurant of your choice, or upgrade to enjoy a buffet meal at the Sheraton Hotel that overlooks the falls. After sunset, a light show displays the falls in captivating colors.

Enjoy free time to explore Niagara Falls on your own or opt to visit the Journey Behind the Falls attraction where you descend via elevator to get a closer look underneath and behind the crashing waters (at your own expense).

Your tour ends with return transport to your Toronto hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Journey Behind the Falls
Journey Behind the Falls is a year-round attraction that offers an unique view of the Falls from below and behind. Visitors descend 150 ft. by elevator, where a short tunnel (150 ft.) gives access to two outdoor observation decks and two portals located directly behind the Falls. At Journey Behind the Falls, you`ll experience the awesome spectacle of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down to the basin below. During summer daylight hours, over 2,800 cubic meters of water thunders over the brink every second, travelling 65 kilometers per hour! Your Journey Behind the Falls visit will take 30 to 45 minutes and in the spring and summer months, you`ll receive a free souvenir biodegradable rain poncho as protection from the mist of the Falls. Elevators descend 150 feet through bedrock to tunnels that lead and to the Cataract Portal and the Great Falls Portal which is one third of the way behind the massive sheet of water. Then you walk on to the Upper and Lower Observation Decks at the very foot of the Falls. Posters of information are a great resource of information about the history and evolution of the hallways you walk through. Journey Behind the Falls is an iconic Niagara Falls experience, make sure you take a waterproof camera. (tickets available to purchase)

The tour driver/guide was friendly and helpful but we could not hear most of what he was saying while driving. We purchased the supper which was mediocre at best. I would not recommend adding the supper on. There are plenty of places to eat around the falls, like Rainforest Cafe, Hard Rock Cafe, Wendy’s, DQ and many others. The stops are all brief and cool to see. The horn blower cruise was awesome. I thought there was supposed to be a winery stop, but that didn’t happen. It wasn’t a big deal though. It is a long day, so be prepared for that. We left @ 1pm and returned by 11pm.

Our tour from start to finish was amazing! Our driver Fabio was incredible and very knowledgeable, he stops at many unique places and leaves time for pictures He was extremely accommodating! Do to covid we were the only ones on the tour and got to experience short line ups and cute places of interest! The only disappointment was on the company was there was no fireworks we did the night tour and they didn’t take us to the winery which we paid for and they didn’t tell us till we were on the trip. It was the reason we booked the trip as we could do winery falls and fireworks Fabio said it cost $10 I mean the price of our trip could have easily covered $10 wine tasting. Just a sneaky thing a company left out and should be taken off the itinerary But other than what we didn’t see our trip was good

The tour was good, but due to Covid-19 we were not able to do the Hornblower Cruise which was a main reason for booking. We did journey behind the falls which was okay but not what we wanted. We enjoyed the scenery and our driver and guide Fabio was excellent, very knowledgeable about the area. Wine tasting was nice. Disappointed that The Keg was closed in Niagara so we couldn’t celebrate my daughter’s birthday the way we had planned. Overall it’s a great way to see the falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake during the day. If you’re willing to stay till dark then you can see the falls at night lit up. Very not nice day trip, lots to see and do. Also due to Covid-19 there is no Fallsview buffet open so check online before choosing this option.

No fireworks, food not tasty and tourguide had heavy accent

A lot of information, but due to bad weather the fireworks was cancelled, but no mention of it. Our tourguide had no information. We waited outside for 30 mins but nothing was announced or said. Food at the Sheraton was not eatable and too crowded. Also our tourguide had an heavy accent, very difficult to understand. Overall 2 out of 5, I wouldn’t recommend this tour.

2D was an amazing driver. Winery was a very robotic experience and not what I am used to from California. Falls amazing. Boat ride fun. Dinner at Sheraton - no bueno. Stuck in back of restaurant away from everyone else. Only a couple of decent dishes. Drinks very expensive.
