Enjoy fall foliage & fantastic views of Niagara

Nothing spells a Roaring Good Time like a visit to Niagara Falls. Now is the perfect time of year to see spectacular views of vibrant fall colors and one of the greatest Natural Wonders of the World. Explore the great outdoors, enjoy fun-filled fall festivals, and be sure to visit Old Fort Niagara to discover its haunted history!

Traffic has become increasingly insane at Niagara Falls over the years. Driving through stop-and-go traffic to then find no parking spaces can leave you stressed out and definitely not enjoying your visit. Do yourself a favor and take a stress-free tour from NYC or Toronto! My favorite is our Niagara Falls Wine Tasting & Waterfall Day Tour from Toronto. You will stop along the way to the Falls for a special visit to an award winning winery where you can enjoy a free sample of Ice Wine, a sweet treat made from local frozen grapes. You will then continue on to the charming village of Niagara-on-the-Lake and then on to the falls.

I would also highly recommend our Niagara Falls All American Illumination Tour. In addition to the spectacular and colorful night time Illumination of the Falls, this tour also includes a thrilling ride aboard the world famous Maid of the Mist Boat, Viewing the Falls atop the American Observation Tower, the adventurous Cave of the Winds Trip to the base of the Bridal Veil Falls, Attraction Fees, Parking Fees, Road Tolls, Pick-up & Drop-off Service, and much more.

On the popular Cave of the Winds tour, you will find that vanity is not an option next to that magnitude of Mother Nature’s incredible power. At Bridal Veil Falls, approaching the “Hurricane Deck,” be sure to take off your hat and hold on tight to it, or it will no doubt be doomed to a watery grave. The Hurricane Deck is so named because tropical storm conditions are present when you are that close to the Falls. It’s wet, it’s windy, it’s cold, it’s scary, and yes – you will get soaked to the bone. And you will absolutely LOVE IT. ;)

Hurry if you want to take a boat tour! After October 24th, the Falls will close as the water begins to freeze during winter. Check out Niagara Falls Tours for all of the best things to do in Niagara Falls from both New York and Canada!

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is one of those places that everyone should see at least once.You can take tours by boat, van, bus, helicopter, airplane, or jet boat to see the magnificent waterfalls.

My personal favorite is the Niagara Falls All American Illumination Tour by Van. This tour features all the adventure, beauty and natural wonders of Niagara Falls, USA. Visit the oldest state park in the USA, Niagara Falls State Park. Enjoy a thrilling ride aboard the world famous Maid of the Mist Boat, view the falls atop the American Observation Tower, experience the adventurous Cave of the Winds Trip and descend to the base of the Bridal Veil Falls, view the powerful churning waters of the Niagara River Gorge and the Hydro-electric Power Plants, and see the spectacular and colorful night time Illumination of Niagara Falls!

Need PassportThere are many other fun things to do for both adults and children. I highly recommend experiencing the mystery and art of illusion at Greg Frewin’s Las Vegas Dinner & Show in Niagara Falls. This Las Vegas Style Magical Review features spectacular appearances by rare and majestic tigers. Your imagination will be captivated and you will be AMAZED “Beyond Belief.” Get your tickets before they disappear!

If you are looking for a great way to see Niagara Falls but have your days filled up with other activities, the Niagara Falls All American Illumination Tour by Van is definitely the way to go.Depending on the day, tours leave between 4:30 and 6 pm for a fantastic chance to see the Falls at night in all their splendor.

When you give this tour a try, you will be impressed by what a brilliant view you are able to get at night.The Falls are lit up brightly for everyone to see, and you get to view them from several vantage points – atop the American Observation Tower, aboard the Maid of the Mist boat, and from the base of the Bridal Veil Falls during the Cave of the Winds Trip. These are only a few of the places featured on your trip, as you will also get to see Niagara Gorge, some Hydroelectric Power Plants, and much more.

 

For those who do not have 5 or 6 hours to spare but still want to get the most that Niagara Falls has to offer, check out the Niagara-on-the-Lake Wine Tour by Van, which departs during the day to Canadian Wine Country for a chance to taste an assortment of wines and learn about the history of four area wineries.

If the thought of a wine tour doesn’t excite you, the Niagara Falls Royal Canadian Tour by Van should.In four to five hours, this small group tour takes you inside the key viewing areas of the Falls and also includes a trip on the Maid of the Mist for a closer look.

Out and About in Toronto

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Visit Toronto, the largest city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario.  Toronto is considered to be Canada’s economic capital and is known for its low crime rates, diversity, and clean environment.  The best way to tour Toronto is…any way you want! There is tremendous variety when booking tours and activities here because there is always so much to do, and Niagara Falls – the area’s most popular attraction – is only 80 miles south. Tours are offered on jet boats, helicopters, airplanes, bicycles, vans, boats, buses, limousines, and pretty much any mode of transportation you can think of.  For those looking for tours that incorporate an athletic activity, try out one of the bicycle tours around Beamsville in the Canadian Wine Country.  This tour starts in Niagara and takes you to wineries around the area to sample wines and enjoy lunch.  There are plenty of other options for bike tours, including the Jordan Wine Country Tour by Bicycle, and Niagara-on-the-Lake tours.  Segway Distillery District tours are also available for those who would like to learn how to ride around town in a fun new way.

For a more relaxed time, the Niagara Falls Freedom Tour from Toronto is a fabulous choice.  The tour is semi-escorted and allows you to explore more at your leisure.  It includes admission to the Maid of the Mist boat, a stop at a local winery, and a drive through Niagara-on-the-Lake.  The tour lasts about 9 and a half hours and the afternoon is yours to enjoy the Falls at your own pace.  Other activities to consider while you are visiting the Toronto area are the Medieval Times Dinner Show and the Casa Loma Tour where you can have a self-guided glimpse inside Toronto’s most majestic castle and gardens.

 

 

Fall for the Falls

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Those traveling from the Toronto area and looking for tours of Niagara Falls have many options to choose from.  For a more relaxed time, the Niagara Falls Freedom Tour from Toronto is a fabulous choice.  The tour is semi-escorted and allows you to explore more at your leisure.  It includes admission to the Maid of the Mist boat, a stop at a local winery, and a drive through Niagara-on-the-Lake.  The tour lasts about 9 and a half hours and the afternoon is yours to enjoy the Falls at your own pace.

Another great option is the Niagara Falls Day Tour from Toronto.  This tour lasts 11 hours and takes you through some of the most gorgeous lakes and vineyards from Niagara-on-the-Lake to the main attraction, Niagara Falls.  There is plenty of time to go off on your own and explore the area, and this tour includes admission to the Maid of the Mist as well.

For those wishing to take advantage of a combination package, try out the Niagara Falls Day Tour and CN Tower Combo from Toronto.  This tour provides access to everything you see on the Niagara Falls Day Tour and adds on VIP admission to the CN Tower Observatory Deck, which you can utilize the same day or any other day within a year from the date of purchase.  The CN Tower is known as ‘Canada’s Wonder of the World’ and is the world’s tallest building and free standing structure.

The Niagara Falls Evening Light Tour from Toronto allows you to see the Falls in a way that you may not have ever seen them before – illuminated as a true display of brilliance and color.  The tour starts in the afternoon so you are able to see quite a bit before nightfall, and then once the sun goes down the Falls light up! If you go on a Friday, you can see the tremendous fireworks show over the Falls after a delicious buffet dinner at the Penthouse Dining Room, which also provides a wonderful view from above.

 

The whole experience is incredible and will far surpass your wildest expectations.  Whether you have been to Niagara Falls in the past or are seeing it for the first time, I would strongly recommend going to see them at night for enhanced viewing pleasure.
