A comprehensive tour of the Canadian side of Niagara Falls lets you see one of the world’s most iconic natural attractions at its best, and this guided tour comes with round-trip transport for your convenience. Along the way, take in aerial views from the observation deck at Skylon Tower, get super close to Horseshoe Falls on the Maid of the Mist or Journey Behind the Falls excursion (seasonal options), and visit a handful of less-frequented vantage points such as Table Rock Welcome Centre.
What to Expect
After hotel pickup, head to Skylon Tower and ascend 520 feet (158 meters) in a glass elevator to the popular observation tower. Appreciate incredible views of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls, Bridal Veil Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and the American Falls.

Then, don a poncho for the popular Maid of the Mist cruise, which takes your right past the falls from May through October. Visitors from November through April take the Journey Behind the Falls excursion instead, which visits two observation decks and portals right behind Horseshoe Falls.

Other tour highlights include a trip to Queen Victoria Park, Table Rock Welcome Centre, the Lower Niagara River and Gorge, the Upper Canadian Rapids from Third Sister Island, and Whirlpool State Park.

This was a trip of a life time. The boat ride takes you up close and personal with the falls. Be prepared to get wet and experience a breathe taking ride.

It is easy to walk across the boarder from Canada to the American side but will need passport and to fill out entry customs forms on the American side, took us 5 mins to do and about $30 for us to do.

Hi there, I’m pretty sure you don’t need a visa for the US coming from the UK however check online. If I was you I would also get the Canadian version of the ESTA as the tour goes over the border. Hope this helps.
