Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that’s situated on the international border between Canada and the United States; more specifically, between the province of Ontario and New York state. Niagara Fall is the most visited attraction in both Canada and United States with 40 million visitors every year. I visited Niagara Falls in July 2017 in Canada, and I’ll share my experience through this post.
How to book Niagara Falls Tour?
Booking the tour in Toronto was very easy and affordable. it cost around $60 USD for the entire Niagara Falls tour and the journey takes 2 hours from Toronto to Niagara Falls and vice versa. There is a very professional tour guide who also drives the bus and do commentary in Engilsh. I booked my tour from the following website in Toronto:
I actually took a combo tour which costed me around $80 USD for both City Sightseeing Bus Tour in Toronto and a full day Niagara Falls Tour. You can explore your options by visiting the above website.
The Full Day Niagara Falls Tour
The tour starts from “Starbucks Coffee Shop” near Union Station in downtown Toronto. it starts in the morning at 10am and everyone has to be there at the bus stop before departure time. The driver of the bus checks all the tickets and lets everyone board the bus. the bus leaves for Niagara Falls at 10am. it has total four stops. it’ll return at 7pm in the evening.
The bus will reach Niagara Falls in approximately two hours. it has a long one and half hour break there for you to take as many pictures and videos as possible. after Niagara Falls, the tour will continue into Niagara Fall region including the river and Ontario lake. The best thing about the tour is the “Canadian Village Experience”. The Canadian village is located in Niagara region, and around 40 minutes from Niagara Falls. The bus will have a 40 minutes stop there.
The tour guide who is also the bus driver, will give you each and every detail of the places you visit in the tour. And usually, the tour guy also entertains you during his commentary, which is a great thing. Niagara falls region is the most beautiful region in Ontario province. and I fully enjoyed the tour.
Niagara Falls Helicopter ride
At Niagara Falls, there are many amazing activities which you can do if you can afford. The Helicopter tour is the best thing to do which only cost $110 USD, and it’s available every day from 9am to 5pm. you can book the Helicopter tour on this website: https://www.niagarahelicopters.com
There is also Cruise tours which take you exactly where the water actually falls. and it also cost around $20, so not very expensive. I would highly recommend taking Helicopter and Cruise tour during your stay at Niagara Falls. there are many other activities you’ll find at the Niagara falls such as Cable sliding, sky diving and many more.
Please watch my travel video about Niagara Falls, and let me know if you have ever visited Niagara Falls? I visited it from Canadian side of Niagara Falls, but I intend to visit it from the US side as well. I must say that one should visit this place once in lifetime 🙂 Happy Traveling!
