Your Niagara Falls adventure starts with hotel pickup by your guide, who will lead you on a comprehensive tour of the Canadian side of the falls and provide interesting and informative commentary about all the different features you’ll see. The following attractions and activities are included in your tour. Skylon Tower: Ride up to the Skylon Tower observation deck that, at 520 feet (160 meters) above the ground and 775 (236 meters) feet above the bottom of the falls, provides a panoramic view of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls — Horseshoe Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and American Falls. Spend about 30 minutes here. Journey Behind the Falls: Explore a series of tunnels that starts near the bottom of Horseshoe Falls and gives you a look at the backside and underside of the cascade, where you’ll enjoy a different perspective of the thundering water. Spend about 45 minutes here. Hornblower cruise: One of Niagara’s most popular attractions, this 1-hour wet and wild ride gets you as close to Horseshoe Falls as possible so you can hear how loud the water is and feel its powerful spray. Niagara helicopter ride: Take a thrilling 12-minute helicopter ride for aerial views of the waterfalls, Niagara River, whirlpool rapids and the surrounding countryside. Lunch in the Summit Suite Buffet at Skylon Tower: Dine while admiring bird’s-eye views of the falls.
