epart the city mid-afternoon on this unique Niagara Falls evening experience.
First our tour begins with a brief stop in Niagara-on-the-Lake, a quaint and historic town in the heart of Niagara’s wine region. There, you will have the opportunity to savour some of Ontario’s best wines, shop the many unique culinary and fashion boutiques.
Next we travel to the Falls along the scenic Niagara Parkway where you learn the history of the region, stop along the Parkway and visit key sites like the historic Fort George, Mackenzie House, Queenston Heights, the Floral Clock, Sir Adam Beck power station, Laura Secord’s homestead, and the Whirlpool Rapids before heading to the Falls.
At the Falls, your guide will escort you to begin your boat cruise (bypassing all public lines), helicopter tour, or other tour (add-on available at the time of booking). The boat cruise is a unique way to experience the beauty of the Falls from the gorge’s unique vantage point.
After your cruise, enjoy a relaxing buffet dinner (add-on) at Sheraton at the Falls – a beautiful panoramic view of both the US and Canada falls.
After dinner, you can explore the Niagara park area where you will be treated to a spectacular display of fireworks as the Falls are transformed into an incredible, multi-coloured water and light masterpiece.
