A comprehensive tour of the Canadian side of Niagara Falls lets you see one of the world’s most iconic natural attractions at its best, and this guided tour comes with round-trip transport for your convenience. Along the way, take in aerial views from the observation deck at Skylon Tower, get super close to Horseshoe Falls on the Maid of the Mist or Journey Behind the Falls excursion (seasonal options), and visit a handful of less-frequented vantage points such as Table Rock Welcome Centre.
What to Expect
After hotel pickup, head to Skylon Tower and ascend 520 feet (158 meters) in a glass elevator to the popular observation tower. Appreciate incredible views of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls, Bridal Veil Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and the American Falls.

Then, don a poncho for the popular Maid of the Mist cruise, which takes your right past the falls from May through October. Visitors from November through April take the Journey Behind the Falls excursion instead, which visits two observation decks and portals right behind Horseshoe Falls.

Other tour highlights include a trip to Queen Victoria Park, Table Rock Welcome Centre, the Lower Niagara River and Gorge, the Upper Canadian Rapids from Third Sister Island, and Whirlpool State Park.

Information the tour company does not tell you on the website. Or in a review.

I felt misinformed about the time length of this trip at first we were told 4-5 hours, then when the bus driver arrived 45 min later than we were told he would be there. He said it would be a 7-8 hour tour. You have...More

A memorable experience

Riding the Maid of the Mist was so exciting and added so much to the adventure of seeing the falls. Being up close to the falls, getting wet, and watching all the faces enjoying this experience was wonderful.

You can take the Hornblower tour from the Canadian side. Exactly the same tour and you won’t need a visa.

Depends - are you using a scooter, a walker or just slow moving? You should look at the Maid of Mist website for input on that part of the trip. You have to be able to board / deboard the bus which has several steps and the... More
