Niagara Falls Day Trip from Toronto
From US$129.73
The spectacular Niagara Falls lie just south of Toronto and can be easily visited on a day trip. This tour includes one of the most popular Niagara experiences—a Hornblower cruise or the Journey Behind the Falls, depending on the season—as well as exploring the Niagara Peninsula, including Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Whirlpool Rapids, and a wine tasting at a local winery.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your Toronto hotel. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, set out on the scenic 1.5-hour journey to Niagara Falls.

After catching your first glimpse of the mighty falls, stop to enjoy a buffet lunch at a local restaurant before continuing to the first of the day’s attractions. Depending on the season, either hop aboard for a thrilling Hornblower cruise (mid-April to mid-October) and enjoy spectacular views as you glide right beneath Horseshoe Falls. Alternatively, visit the Journey Behind the Falls (mid-October to mid-April), which includes access to the tunnels behind Horseshoe Falls and dramatic views from the Upper and Lower Observation Decks. Then, enjoy a midday buffet lunch.

As you journey back along the Niagara Peninsula, make a stop to admire the Whirlpool Rapids and take photos from the observation deck, looking out along the Niagara River. Continue to the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and see the famous Floral Clock and then pay a visit to a local winery, where you’ll have the option to enjoy a wine tasting (own expense).

On return to Toronto, your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.
