Hi Ann;

You can take an organized bus tour of Niagara Falls. Check out Gray Line Canada for tours of Niagara Falls from Toronto. Gray Line is the tourism division of Greyhound Bus Lines, North America's largest inter-city bus company.

grayline.ca/tours/…

If you're willing, you can make the trip to Niagara Falls using public transportation, tour around on your own, and save yourself some big bucks !

Best Regards

You're Welcome, Ann;

You have four transportation options available to you;

1. rent a car and drive yourself, numerous companies, provides the most flexibility.

2. take a VIA Rail train, but limited number of trains between the two cities. www.viarail.ca

3. take a bus, frequent service. www.greyhound.ca or www.coachcanada.com

4. take a combination of GO Transit train & bus.

gotransit.com/public/…seasonal.aspx

From the Sheraton Centre...

The Toronto Coach Terminal (bus station) is one city block, approx. 0.3 mile / 0.475 km north.

Toronto's Union Station (train station) is approx. 0.419 mile / 0.675 km south

I hope that helps.

Best Regards

There's information on a tour from Toronto on another post of yours that you may not have seen yet....

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g154998-i97-k53392…

Even though a tour might not be your first choice, it might be more relaxing in the end and you will see far more of the area in one fell swoop. This is the description of the tour from the thread above:

World Famous Maid of the Mist Boat Attraction

Visit to the Historic Town of Niagara on the Lake

Niagara Winery, Wine Tasting Included

Queenston Heights Brock Monument

Niagara Parks Floral Clock

Canadian & US Hydro Power Stations

View of Whirlpool Rapids and Niagara Gorge

Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls

Free Time at the Falls for Lunch, Sightseeing, Shopping, Casino...

Not bad for one day in Niagara! :)

One thing to keep in mind if you do this by yourself via public transport is that the Niagara Falls bus and train station are not located near the tourist attractions of the city. You will have to take a taxi to the station and back -- and you probably miss Niagara-On-The-Lake altogether. For this reason I would recommend most people stick to a guided tour from Toronto -- or better: rent a car and drive themselves.
