Niagara Falls Canada Trip

When in Toronto, Niagara Falls is only an hour and a half away. A day trip is the perfect outing to visit the falls, ride the Maid of the Mist boat and even tour above Niagara Falls by helicopter.

Niagara Falls Tour

Day Trip from Toronto to Niagara Falls

A good day trip from Toronto to the falls includes stops to a Niagara winery for wine tasting (before the helicopter ride!), visits to the Floral Clock, a ride on the Maid of the Mist boat and Niagara on the Lake. offers discounts for the day tour and also allows you to spend more time in Niagara Falls than large bus companies.

A good company will also bring you right to the falls instead of some bus parking lot that is not walkable.

You don't have to take the optional helicopter ride over the falls, but it is highly recommended to take the Maid of the Mist boat tour which will only be in operation until 2014. (unless a new contract is initiated).

A visit to a Hydro power station is also a bonus and included in the day trip from Toronto to Niagara Falls. This is a day trip to remember and Niagara Falls are a wonder to behold.

New Niagara Falls Canada

Niagara Falls and the surrounding area on the Canadian side of the border has experienced tremendous growth over the last decade. Niagara keeps reinventing itself with the addition of a brand new casino as well as eclectic restaurants, upgraded modern hotels and thrilling attractions. A view from the top of the Skylon tower helps to get oriented to the entire area along with a stunning view of the Horseshoe Falls.

The Maid of the Mist boat ride continues to operate until 2014 and the Journey Behind the Falls also is in operation. The bus trip from downtown Toronto to Niagara Falls is about an hour, but with several planned stops including a visit to Niagara on the Lake and a local winery for wine tasting, the actual transit time is longer as the Falls are part of an all-day adventure.

A day trip is also great to discover new areas and then a longer trip can be planned to the hotels, restaurants, attractions and areas that are scoped out on the first sweeping visit.

You will love exploring Niagara Falls and all it has to offer visitors from around the world.

View of the Falls

At the top of the Skylon Tower which rises 775 feet up in the air, the view of the falls is stunning. There is still a better view right from the foot of the falls where, on the Maid of the Mist boat, you can feel the splash of the falls and hear the thunderous roar.

View the American Falls and the Horseshoe Falls during an awe-inspiring day trip from Toronto. You may just see a rainbow and will definitely experience the refreshing mist of the falls.

    Going by smaller bus makes the trip alot more fun - plus the smaller bus spends less time picking people up in Toronto and more time at the Falls. It also is allowed to park right at the falls instead of at the big bus parking area which is far.
