Niagara Falls Day Trip from Toronto
The spectacular Niagara Falls lie just south of Toronto and can be easily visited on a day trip. This tour includes one of the most popular Niagara experiences—a Hornblower cruise or the Journey Behind the Falls, depending on the season—as well as exploring the Niagara Peninsula, including Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Whirlpool Rapids, and a wine tasting at a local winery.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your Toronto hotel. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned coach, set out on the scenic 1.5-hour journey to Niagara Falls.

After catching your first glimpse of the mighty falls, stop to enjoy a buffet lunch at a local restaurant before continuing to the first of the day’s attractions. Depending on the season, either hop aboard for a thrilling Hornblower cruise (mid-April to mid-October) and enjoy spectacular views as you glide right beneath Horseshoe Falls. Alternatively, visit the Journey Behind the Falls (mid-October to mid-April), which includes access to the tunnels behind Horseshoe Falls and dramatic views from the Upper and Lower Observation Decks. Then, enjoy a midday buffet lunch.

As you journey back along the Niagara Peninsula, make a stop to admire the Whirlpool Rapids and take photos from the observation deck, looking out along the Niagara River. Continue to the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and see the famous Floral Clock and then pay a visit to a local winery, where you’ll have the option to enjoy a wine tasting (own expense).

On return to Toronto, your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

Old Bus - No WiFi

We took this trip to Niagara Falls and we were disgusted, no WiFi on the bus in this day and age is appalling. The stops are too short to even see anything. The only good thing about this tour was the guide/bus driver Mike. Otherwise...More

Wonderful Day Tour from Toronto

Took a trip to Niagara Falls with my son from Toronto. The motor coach left on time and commentary by the guide, Grant, was just the right combination of informative and self-depreciating. He had a great double-act with the driver, Peter. Had plenty of free...More

Good tour but could be improved

It was a good tour, but we have noticed that it was way too fast. More time is needed in all places rather than just the average of 45min. There was no time to have a look at souvenirs shops after the boat ride in...More

Fantastic tour!

I have to say I was so pleased with how our experience was with Gray Line. The bus was super clean w/bathroom and our tour guide made sure our 90 minute ride was full of fun facts and stories about Toronto. We arrived in Niagara...More

If you worried about a long bus ride, the longest time on the bus between stops is only about 90 minutes.
