What To Expect

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 a casual fine dining lunch in the Revolving Dining Room at Skylon Tower.

Additional stops include Whirlpool State Park and the Niagara Falls hydroelectric generating plants, among others.

The tour was fabulous. Our tour guide, Samantha was awesome, she was born for that job. Very bubbly and knowledgeable. All aspects of the tour were great. We had very low expectations for the lunch meal but it was good. I highly recommend this tour.

Where is my refund?
Rick_K, Aug 2023
Communication prior to the trip was great. Guide was good. No problems. 100% happy until we get to the helicopter flight. It was cancelled due to low cloud. Apart from the fact that the guide went missing for half an hour while we stood around like stale bottles of piss. We were told that we would receive a refund of around $100 per person because that is the cost to them of the flight. That's crap because it was the main reason we chose the tour at it cost around $480 per person. Anyway three weeks later and no refund. I emailed them a week ago and crickets......
Good tour package
Kristin_P, Aug 2023
The tour was wonderful! Our tour guide Vinny was excellent! He was very informative, nice, and professional. We didn’t have to wait long for the the helicopter ride and boat ride. The only complaint we have was lunch at the Skylon Tower. It was hot inside the restaurant and our waiter was not very good. He never brought us our drinks we requested and was slow. I’ll chalk it up to maybe they were short handed but he was not attentive to our needs at all. Overall though, we had had a great time and experience.
Perfect Day at Niagara Falls!
Agnes_K, Aug 2023
This tour is really a great option if you are visiting for a short time since it covers nearly all attractions. Our tourgide, Jovan was the best. He made sure that we had our best time exploring what Niagara offers while we also learnd about its history from the stories he told. Overall, it was an amaizing experiance and we would highly recommend it to everyone!

The tour of the falls,...
Douglas_B, July 2023
The tour of the falls, helicopter ride and lunch from over 500 ft up were all amazing! Our tour guide Eduardo was such a great leader for the day - we highly recommend him and the tour! My 12-year olds were engaged every minute of the 5+ hours and I wouldn’t change a thing!
Great experience, especially the time flying over Niagara in the helicopter
REBECA_C, July 2023
Excellent insight into Niagara Falls and all the excitement around it, especially our helicopter ride and ride on the Hornblower. Dan, the man was awesome in his approach to encouraging everybody to be part of joining in and enjoying the day Solely recommended for somebody who has only a short amount of time and wants to experience as much of Niagara as possible
Very good except the lift guy Ram. Very rude for a lift operator.
Ravendra_S, July 2023
Tour guide Vince was excellent. Gave us tips as well for a better experience. Pretty good experience overall.
A birdseye view
Deon_J, July 2023
The helicopter ride was my family’s favorite. It was beautiful and peaceful experiencing Niagra Falls from above it all. The staff were through courteous and prompt. The made the experience seamless only giving way to a memorable experience. Our second fav was the boat ride. It was majestic! This entire experience was one of a lifetime.
