Small Group Niagara Falls Sightseeing Tour from Toronto with Hornblower Boat
Take a Niagara Falls sightseeing tour with pickup from Toronto or airport hotels. This tour is well-equipped to serve groups of all sizes.
This luxury 9.5-hour sightseeing tour from Toronto starts with pickup from your hotel. Drive 1.5 hours to Niagara Falls.
Visit the Whirlpool Rapids to experience the natural phenomenon of the Niagara River. Choose to enjoy a Hornblower cruise (seasonal), the Journey Behind the Falls experience, or admission to the Skylon Tower.
Then enjoy a full Canadian buffet lunch (additional cost) at the Sheraton Fallsview Restaurant, in the Sheraton Hotel Penthouse Level. Savor a tasty meal with a lot to choose from while enjoying the spectacular view of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and American Falls. This is an awesome photo opportunity.
Next take a scenic drive on Niagara Parkway. Winston Churchill famously called this 'The Prettiest Sunday Afternoon Drive in the World.' Visit the Floral Clock, one of the most popular sights in Niagara, between the Botanical Gardens and Queenston Heights Park. This 40-foot-wide (12-meter) working clock is one of the largest in the world.
Do some souvenir shopping and make a stopover at Queenston Heights, where you can learn about the famous Battle of Queenston Heights. Queenston Heights Park is the site of a War of 1812 battle in which Sir Isaac Brock was killed. A 150-foot (50-meter) monument, perched above the Niagara Escarpment, was built in his honor.
Stop at the 'Smallest Chapel in the World' and have 75 minutes to explore Niagara-on-the-Lake. You will appreciate the quaint shops and boutiques that line Queen Street, the main drag of Niagara-on-the-Lake, as well as the proximity of wineries, brew pubs and even a chocolate factory.
Be treated as a wine connoisseur at a world-class winery, Pillitteri Estates Winery, where you'll enjoy a complimentary wine or grape juice tasting. Feel free to purchase any wines of your choice. The famous Ice Wine is available here.
You'll be dropped off at your hotel upon return to Toronto.
Excellent tour despite not being picked up at the hotel. However credit must go to the tour operator who picked us up and took us to Niagara to catch up with the rest of the party. Would recommend this tour. Have given it four stars because of the oversight at the start.

Absolutely brilliant day out. Extremely well organised and we were able to jump some long queues. Lots of photo stops included en route too. I would highly recommend this trip. One small thing, I was led to believe we were going on the Spanish Aerocar during the trip, but we only stopped to take photos of it which was a little disappointing. This was not clear in the booking conformation. Despite this, I would highly recommend this tour as it was crammed full of fun experiences.

Great day visiting the Falls. _br/_ A few misleading points on the trip eg, you do not get to ride on the Aero car whirlpool,You do not get to stop to take Pictures at the floral clock and you have to pay a fee to sample the Ice wine.

The actual tour was good but the bus we were on left a lot to be desired . When we went on the tour it was around 34 degrees and the air conditioning didn't really work at all , so it was very hot in the bus . This tour is not cheap at over 320US for 3 people , the least a traveler can expect is a modern clean and air conditioned bus . We booked through Viator but the company who picked us up was Airlinks , so while the guide and driver were fine, the vehicles Airlinks used were not do be careful when booking this tour and check who is actually taking you on the tour.

Complete overview around the Niagara falls, a day efficiently managed, and in a small group... time spent in Niagara on the lake city really appreciated, quick stop to taste some wine, quick stop at a typical market, some other spots for photos, and for sure time to see the fabulous Niagara falls!

The trip to Niagara Falls was great. Everything and more than I had anticipated. Our driver was very efficient, kind and considerate.

I gave it three because Niagra falls was beautiful . The accommodations awful the van was uncomfortable . My brother in law sat in the back and it felt like the seats were coming undone . We felt every bump on the road . I had to sit in a straight up position for the 1 1/2 ride so the rest of the passengers could be comfortable . Honestly it was a van that they drilled chairs on to
