Fall in Love with Niagara Sightseeing Tours

Enjoy fall foliage & fantastic views of Niagara

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

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!

Choose from a huge selection of cruises, tours and attractions in Niagara Falls with Niagara Falls Tours and Reserve123.

If you want to see the city of Toronto but want to call your own shots, take the Toronto Hop On Hop Off City Tour.This option combines the knowledge and skill of a professional tour guide with the convenience of picking and choosing which spots to explore.You have the luxury of getting on and off the bus to have a closer look at an area, and you can rejoin the tour at any time within 3 touring days.This allows you to see what you want, skip what you don’t, and pick up where you left off.It is perfect for those who are in town for a conference or to visit loved ones since you can fit it into your schedule whenever you have time.

This double-decker tour does not disappoint.The bus has two loops, one running north to south and the other east to west.Each loop has some distinctive stops, so some might decide to take both, one each day. On the north-south loop, one of the highlights is the stop at Casa Loma, a beautiful castle on a hill and the estate of a well-known Toronto financier.Guests also appreciate some time at the Entertainment and Fashion Districts as well as the Toronto Music Garden.On the east-west loop you will want to pay particular attention to Little Italy, Chinatown, and Koreatown where there are some great buys and of course mouth-watering food.Take the opportunity to hop off the bus at some of these points if you decide you want to spend some more time there; it is very easy to find the bus again and hop back on to continue the tour.

Toronto from Above

Helicopter tours are a unique way to see the city from a different vantage point.  One popular tour is the Vertical Reality Helicopter Tour, which takes you 2,000 feet into the air for amazing aerial views and it travels an average of 100 miles per hour.   A similar tour called the Vertical Obsession Helicopter Tour in Toronto takes you on an extended version of the flight to get a more comprehensive view of Toronto and its giant skyscrapers. 

There are also several romantic tours – like the Romantic Jewel Helicopter Tour in Toronto – showcasing downtown Toronto, which take place from morning to sunset.  The Romantic Interlude Helicopter Tour in Toronto is a private flight for two that lifts you out over the city for a breathtaking view of the Toronto skyline, the waterfront, and the bay before traveling north to the magnificent Casa Loma castle.  The castle is a historical landmark and the former estate of Sir Henry Pellatt, a prominent figure in Toronto known for his work in finance, as an industrialist, and as a member of the military.  

The Vertical Obsession Helicopter Tour around Toronto gets you oriented to the area while providing a unique experience for those who have never flown in a helicopter before.  There are numerous opportunities to take pictures and look out at the city skyline as you make your way across the city.  For a fantastic opportunity to bond with a loved one or to enjoy time with a close friend or two, I urge you to take this tour.  It is relatively short so it fits nicely into your day even if you are on a busy schedule.

Out and About in Toronto

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.
