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.

Next we travel to the falls where your guide will escort you, by-passing all public lines, to the Hornblower Niagara Cruise where you will experience the beauty of the Falls from the gorge’s unique vantage point.

After your cruise, enjoy a relaxing 3-course dinner at the brink of the Horseshoe Falls as they are transformed into an incredible, multi-coloured water and light masterpiece.

For the grand finale, your tour guide will escort you up to the light house where you get a rare and exclusive opportunity to “Light Up the Falls”. Get a behind the scene view of the Illumination Tower and the opportunity to control the new state of the art LED lighting system projecting from the lighthouse onto all three falls.

All tours can enjoy the Falls Illumination and spectacular fireworks during the fireworks season before heading back to Toronto.

2018 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence

” There were so many little details taken care of, from bypassing the crowds with our guide, to our own luxury, private vehicle and driver. I never realized what a difference it could make. Turns out it makes all the difference in the world. I cannot imagine experiencing Niagara any other way. ”

Susan K., Plano, TX

” I brought a customer over to Toronto and we visited the Niagara Falls and the Niagara falls on the lake town, our driver and tour guide was Walter T. He was exceptional, intelligent and a well mannered man. He had answers for every question and he left a good impression on us. I will surely use this company again should I bring over more customers. ”

” I’ve been on many tours around the world and this one by far is the best one! Booking with Crystal was hassle free. She was knowledgeable and able to provide me the best tour option possible considering my mom’s needs. I ended up booking a private tour for mom and I with Emil. Emil, I cannot sum up in words how great of a man / guide he is! Very courteous, knowledgeable, witty, funny, and kind. He accommodated to all of our needs. We did not feel rushed, we were comfortable, all the little touches he added made this experience unforgettable.  ”

LoveTravelWorldxo, TripAdvisor Review

” Absolutely the highlight of our Trip to Toronto and Niagara Falls. A wonderful tour of Niagara Falls, Niagara on the Lake, and a tour of a local winery. It was a trip perfect for children with times to unwind and totally carefree. I cannot imagine driving a rental car to Niagara Falls when you can hire VIP Ontario Tours and learn so much about the history and area. This tour guide is highly recommended and was certainly the highlight of our vacation to Toronto. We had two children with us. They absolutely loved EVERY MINUTE OF IT. Thank you. ”
