Upon arrival at Niagara Falls, step aboard a Hornblower Boat for your cruise that gets you tantalizingly close to the base of the falls.

At Journey Behind the Falls, watch one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crash into the basin below. During summer daylight hours, over 2,800 cubic meters of water cascade over the brink every second, traveling 40 miles per hour (65 kmh).

For a bird’s-eye view of the action, hop into a helicopter that swoops over the falls (tickets can be purchased at a discounted price).

Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

The Skylon Tower is famous for its view of Niagara Falls, River, the Toronto Skyline and Buffalo on the American side. The Skylon Tower is one of the top attractions in Niagara Falls and a must for those who want to see a bird’s eye view of the City and the surrounding area. Bring your camera, there’s no other place you can go to where you can take a picture all around the city from one location.

We invite you to stay a while and enjoy a Sunday brunch at the Summit Suite Buffet or enjoy our specially crafted menu at the Revolving Restaurant. Be sure to set aside some time to enjoy your stay. 775 Feet, 52 Seconds to the Top The Skylon Tower features three signature Yellow Bug elevators that was the first of its kind when construction began of the Skylon Tower. They were designed and engineered with our guests in mind. The Yellow Bug Elevator has a glass-enclosed exterior so you can view your ascent up the Skylon. Make sure you don’t blink during the ascent up as the Yellow Bug elevators take our guests straight to the top in less than a minute. Once the ride to the top is over, it’s time to experience the Falls in a way you were meant to experience it.

This unique attraction is a very popular stop on the Niagara Parkway and is photographed almost as often as the Falls! The planted face is maintained by Niagara Parks horticulture staff, while the mechanism is kept in working order by Ontario Hydro, the organization that originally built the clock. The intricate designs on the face of the timepiece are created with up to 16,000 carpet bedding plants. The floral design is changed twice each year, featuring viola in the Spring and four cultivars of Alternanthera along with green and grey forms of Santolina Sage during the Summer and Fall. California Golden Privet and Blue Festuca Grass may be used for contrast. The grounds surrounding the clock feature bedding displays and a tower at the back of the clock houses Westminster chimes that greet each quarter hour. If the door into the tower is open, you can take a glimpse at the clock mechanism and enjoy photographs that show the history of almost every face design all the way back to 1950. MORE INFO

Okay as these things go...

The objectives were fulfilled. The guide was informed. Other guests agreeable. Would have preferred more area tour. Will not recommend tunnels, white water walk to future guests. A little not a lot of time saved by not buying tickets. Loved the area. Exposure to guide caused us to get out and explore.

Tom gave us an awesome tour of the falls and the city. He shared lots of stories about the history and people involved in the locations we saw. We never had to wait in a line. We got far more done than we could have even seen and done if we had done it on our own. We have been on the road visiting the northeastern USA and Canada and our tour with Tom was the best single day of our trip.

I would rate this experience poor. It’s not worth the price. Buy a ticket to cruise and drive around instead.

My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable of the entire area. We got to see the major things that their are to see including riding the Hornblower, which is the Canadian side version of the Maid of the Mist, the Floral Clock and Niagara on the Lake. This tour DOES NOT include Behind the Falls attraction which I thought it did. Their were only a total of 6 of us on the tour and that made it very easy to ask questions and hear what was going on.

Our driver was amazing, but you can save your money by renting a car and go sightseeing yourself. You can also just get the tickets for the boat tour. I would not recommend this tour, but once again, our driver was great.
