Enjoy a comprehensive visit to Niagara Falls as you get up-close on a Hornblower Niagara Cruises boat ride, go to the top of the Skylon Tower, and descend underground to feel the Horseshoe Falls tumbling above you.
What to Expect
Enjoy a combination 5-hour tour of Niagara Falls to experience the mighty waterfall from several different perspectives. You will see the power of Niagara up close, with just a few feet to spare, on board the mesmerizing Hornblower Niagara Cruises boat ride. One of the most enjoyable attractions at Niagara Falls, it enables you to witness the thundering waters face-to-face.
But only half of the waters of the Niagara River actually go over the falls! The other half is diverted by the international control dams and stored in large reservoirs underground for later use by the Canadian and American power plants. On this tour you will make a short visit to learn the origin of the Falls and the power plants.
You will also view the beautiful Floral Clock, made up of more than 16,000 carpet bedding plants. Stroll through the 99 acres of the Botanical Gardens, filled with beautiful perennials, rhododendrons, azaleas, a formal parterre garden, herb and vegetable plantings, as well as the world-famous rose garden, featuring over 2,400 roses.
Learn about the Niagara Glen, and the Whirlpool Golf Course. And get fully narrated stops at the Whirlpool Rapids Observation Deck, and the Brink of the Falls. A highlight will be to ascend the Skylon Tower for panoramic aerial views, but you will also descend behind the falls and feel the Horseshoe Falls cascading above you.
