After a hotel pickup, head to the central part of Niagara Falls with a guide, who will provide a detailed tour of the Canadian side of the falls, offering stories, history and fun facts along the way.
Start with an exciting ride up to the observation deck at the top of the Skylon Tower. Enjoy the incredible view of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls — the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls from 520 feet in the air.
Then it’s down the elevator and off to the lookout point at the brink of the Horseshoe Falls, arguably the most popular spot to see the falls rolling over the edge of a cliff.
Next, experience the Journey Behind the Falls excursion, where the sound is like thunder and the view is unparalleled. See the Horseshoe Falls rumble from 13 stories above — dropping over 700,000 gallons of water every second at 40 miles per hour.
Then, during summer and fall months, take a 1-hour Hornblower cruise for an up-close look at the falls. In winter and spring months, enjoy the Butterfly Conservatory and Niagara Fury. Afterward, continue to the Whirlpool Rapids, the largest series of standing waves in North America, for a whitewater walk and a look at the Niagara Parks Floral Clock, a unique timepiece that has been photographed almost as often as Niagara Falls.
Should hunger strike along the way, there are a number of food stands to grab a quick snack or beverage.
