Scotia ATM, Coach Canada station, Mist\Cave tour, eatery

We stay at "Marriott Gateway" and plan to buy "Ride 24 hr Pass" .

Thinking take both Mist\Cave tour then Coach Canada to Toronto since it has more schedule than train and GreyLine, wondering

1. How long both tour take ? As I read Mist tour will get wet, so probable need take Cave tour 1st?

2. Is"24 Hr Pass" take us to Scotia Bank, Coach Canada Bus Station and downtown? Any suggestion for a family family friendly restaurant which either can walk or bus can take us too?

( don't want to eat at hotel)

Thx ahead

Hi tx_pearland;

Just to clarify...

The Cave of the Winds is located on the American side, so you will need to factor in additional time to cross the Rainbow Bridge twice, and clear Customs twice.

You WILL get wet on both the Maid of the Mist AND the Cave of the Winds.

1. Allow at least an hour for each plus travel time to each.

2. By "Ride 24 hr Pass", I assume you mean the Falls Shuttle. This system has 3 routes:

Green Route runs between Clifton Hill and the Niagara Falls downtown area, where the bus and train stations are located.

Blue Route covers Clifton Hill, Queen Victoria Park, Marineland and the Fallsview area (where your hotel is located).

Red Route runs between Clifton Hill and Lundy's Lane.

There are only 2 Scotiabanks in Niagara Falls, neither of which are on any of the Shuttle routes. The closest you could get is to get off the Green Route bus at Queen St. and Victoria Ave. and walk south 2 blocks to the bank.

Thx, RescueTeam and fallsdude.

Look like we only take Mist tour then.

"get off the Green Route bus at Queen St. and Victoria Ave. and walk south 2 blocks to the bank."--- Is it a pretty safe area to walk? or there's barely any walker?

Any recommended restaurant with a reasonable price close any bus stop?

Will be in Toronto and Montreal next few days to catch up food.

Thx again

You're Welcome, tx_pearland !

Niagara Falls is a very safe place. Use your usual "street smarts" and you'll be fine !

Best Regards
