Table Rock

Table Rock is the heart of Niagara Parks - where every year millions of visitors stand close to the thundering water rushing over the brink of the Horseshoe Falls!

Whirlpool Rapids

The huge volume of water rushing over Niagara Falls is crushed into the narrow Gorge, creating the Whirlpool Rapids. The Niagara Whirlpool is formed at the end of the rapids where the gorge turns abruptly counterclockwise. The river's abrupt change of direction creates one of the world’s most mesmerizing natural phenomenons.

Queenston Heights

Nestled high atop the Niagara Escarpment, Queenston Heights Park combines leisure and history in one scenic location.

Tour Itinerary

We’ll pick you up from anywhere in our downtown Toronto pick up zone and take you directly to Niagara Falls.  Since we’re such a small group, we’ll have plenty of time for questions and photo stops during the tour. 
When we arrive in Niagara Falls, our first stop will be the iconic Hornblower Niagara Cruises boat tour.  This once-in-a-lifetime boat tour will bring you up close to the glorious Great Gorge, American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and, of course, the majestic Horseshoe Falls. 
After the boat tour, guests who have purchased the lunch option will enjoy a superb buffet lunch overlooking the Falls.  Guests on the Tour + Boat option will have time to explore Niagara Falls and enjoy lunch on your own.
Next, we’ll spend some time at Table Rock which is the very heart of Niagara Parks.  Our Niagara Parks licensed tour guides point out the best spots to get some fantastic, up-close shots of the Falls.    
From Table Rock, we’ll travel along the magnificent Niagara Parkway which connects Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake.  We’ll make several brief stops along the route at the Floral Clock and Whirlpool Rapids. 
Finally, we’ll walk around Niagara-on-the-Lake, one of Canada’s prettiest towns and a designated National Historic Site of Canada.  From Niagara-on-the-Lake, we’ll travel back to Toronto. Drop off is provided anywhere in our downtown drop off zone.
