Megabus vs King Tours or BG Tours? Skylon Tower or Journey?

Hi there. This is my first time to Niagara Falls and I'm wondering how to get there from Toronto.

It looks like Megabus is cheaper but I was also looking at tours through King Tours (which includes ticket for Skylon Tower or Journey Behind Falls) or BG Tours. Any advice?

Megabus is cheap, but there have been a few problems with it (in the Montreal to Toronto route) including one going on fire.

How long do you plan on spending in Niagara, are you on a small budget? If you want to see lots of the Falls attractions there is a pass that you can get that includes many of them.

If you want a whirlwind, sort of see everthing fast, then King tours "sounds good" I did check out their website, the Skylon tower/Journey.. is extra. There is a lot packed into that trip, so you will not have much time to enjoy places. As it will take approx 3 hrs round trip you will only have 5-6 hrs in the area. I love Niagara on the Lake, the shops on the main street are nice to spend time in, I personally can spend a few hours there.

Hi mcmusgro;

On the Toronto forum, have a look at the "Top Questions" entry titled "How to get from Toronto to Niagara Falls?" which provides you with the various public transportation options from Toronto to Niagara Falls.

King Tours doesn't have a good reputation on the forums. Before booking with torontours.ca, niagaratours.ca, etours.ca or kingtours.ca, I would suggest reading this previous post;

Solid recommendations are posted on this forum, and the Toronto forum, for Chariot's of Fire tours.
