You will experience the stunning grandeur of Niagara Falls and surrounds by day and into the night, as we host you on this afternoon and evening Executive Tour from Toronto. Groups are kept small (maximum of 10-24 people) so you can enjoy a top-quality, Executive experience.
You will be chauffeured in a first-class, luxury minibus along the captivating Niagara Parkway and visit the Floral Clock, Niagara-on-the-Lake, a winery and more. At Niagara Falls we will escort you past any queues, onto the Hornblower Boat, to come spectacularly (and safely!) close to the famed falls. The Hornblower does not operate from December to late March due to weather – during this time we will replace it with either the Skylon Tower or Journey Behind the Falls attractions.
Skylon Tower gives you unparalleled elevated views of the Falls, while the Journey Behind the Falls short walk will bring you face-to-face with the Falls. Once the sun has set, a light show will highlight the majesty of Niagara Falls, beautifully combining the creativity of mankind with nature.
By this time your appetite will be more than ready for an excellent buffet dinner (optional Add-on), overlooking the falls from the Penthouse level of the Sheraton Hotel.
As our guest, we will pick you up and return you to your hotel in downtown Toronto (other pickup points can also be arranged).
Every day is different, so our hosts may vary the sequence of attractions to give you the best Executive experience. This is a typical itinerary:
Toronto Pickup (included)
At 1:00 PM your welcoming Executive Tour Host will collect you from Downtown Toronto Hotels and Toronto Airport Hotels in a first-class, climate-controlled Mini Coach Bus. If you are staying outside the area, you can:
- meet us at a close hotel or one of our three pickup rendezvous (no extra charge)
- order the “Outside Toronto” pickup option when booking
- see Pickup FAQ for more detailed information
|Mercedes Sprinter 14 Passenger Luxury Van
Reclining leather seats, tinted windows, designed for comfort, individual reading lights, plenty of headroom. Perfect for longer trips. 24 Passenger Ameritrans Luxury Mini Coach Bus, as well as several other luxury coaches and buses, are also available.
Scenic Route (included)
On the very scenic route from Toronto to Niagara, your host will entertain you with informative and historical commentary of the area, covering topics such as the Native population and the Niagara peninsula geography which has made the area world-famous.
Located on the shores of Lake Ontario and at the mouth of the Niagara River, Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of the most beautiful historical towns in Canada. We will spend about an hour in the town so you can stroll around, have an ice-cream or coffee and soak in the serenity! The town has many fascinating historical houses, curious stores and classic boutiques.
Local Winery (included)
Indulge in some complimentary wine and grape-juice tasting from a local award-winning winery. If any catch your fancy, feel free to buy and take home any of the locally-made wines. Of particular note are the acclaimed Canadian ice wines.
Niagara Whirlpool (included) and Helicopter Rides (optional addon)
The Niagara Whirlpool Rapids are a must-see; the white-water rapids are some of the most violent in North America.
While there, weather permitting, Niagara Helicopter rides above the Niagara Falls are also available. We cannot take bookings for helicopter rides due to frequent weather cancellations, but we can obtain a 20% discount for you on the day if you decide to take a ride. Payment is made directly to Niagara Helicopter Rides on the day.
Floral Clock / World's Smallest Chapel / Hydro stations (all included)
This extremely popular stop is quite unusual as it is a large, functioning clock created with approximately 16,000 carpet bedding plants.
The World’s Smallest Chapel is exactly that – the World’s Smallest Chapel!
Drive through the Niagara Hydro Power Stations and turbines generating huge quantities of power by harnessing the energy of the River.
Cruise (seasonal - included)
Included in the tour, and a real highlight is a ride on the Hornblower boat, which brings you as close as possible to the tremendousness of Niagara Falls. On the water in the Niagara Great Gorge, you will be treated to American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and then be astounded by the sheer magnitude and raw power of the water as it pours over the top of the Horseshoe Falls.
NOTE: The Hornblower Cruise is included in your Executive Tour. You can also book one or both of the Skylon Tower and Journey Behind the Falls options. However, please note that the Hornblower Cruise is closed from December to late March (exact dates are dependant on the weather). If the cruise is closed for your tour, we will replace it with either the Journey Behind the Falls or the Skylon Tower view.
Skylon Tower & Journey Behind the Falls (optional addons)
As an optional Tour Addon, the Journey Behind the Falls takes you into the very heart of Niagara Falls, where you start by taking an elevator 45 metres / 150 feet down through the bedrock. A short walk through a tunnel brings you to the Great Falls Portal and the Cataract Portal. This is so close to the huge falling water sheet – only 1/3 of the way behind! You can then stand on the Upper and Lower Observation Decks at the base of the Falls and soak in the view. Free biodegradable rain ponchos are provided in spring and summer as the Falls generate a lot of mist.
Another optional Tour Addon, the easily accessible and iconic Skylon Tower provides stunning elevated views of the Falls.
Penthouse Level Dinner (optional addon)
The Fallsview Restaurant located on the Penthouse level of the Sheraton Hotel is famous for its views of the Falls and its buffet. What better way to enjoy a delicious meal!
Table Rock (included)
Table Rock is at the top of the Horseshoe Falls, where you can almost touch the water as it pours over the edge. When the sun sets, floodlights illuminate the Falls in different colours, bringing out even more of the beauty of the Falls.
