The twilight cruise to the Falls is the best. The Falls are lit with warm colors that bring the already vibrant natural waters to even greater life beneath the evening light shrouded by the awesome mist of the roiling water, punctuated by the thunder of the falling water.

Excellent tour. We travelled early afternoon and did the boat trip to the falls in daylight and then saw the lights in the evening after nightfall from Niagara town which I would recommend as you get best of both worlds and being up close to the falls in daylight is probably a better experience. We had excellent driver and tour guide who was very knowledgeable. Drive to the winery and through the village of Niagara on the Lake was a great additional part of the day and the meal we had in Niagara, at the Sheraton, was superb. Great day and thoroughly recommend it.

A MUST do!! This tour is such an awesome experience!!! We stayed in Toronto, and wanted to tour Niagara Falls. This tour allowed us to see how beautiful Niagara Falls is during the day and night. The 30 minute, boat ride was so much fun, expect to get wet they do provide rain coats! The food at the buffet was great. We were able to get a couple hours of free time to do more site seeing. They picked us up on a coach bus, the ride lasted about 1.5 hours. They also provided us with a drawstring bag, bottled water and granola bar :-

This trip was the highlight of our stay in Toronto. The tour company were very professional and provided a very enjoyable trip which was very good value for money and of a very high standard of service and quality of organisation. The meal at the Sheraton Hotel we much higher quality and quantity than we had expected. The buffet was was a very large range of food catering for all and it's quality was very good with all you can eat available. Our guide David looked after us very well and kept the tour to our schedule, thanks David.

This is a MUST!! The stop on the way for a wine tasting was a nice touch. Very knowledgeable guide. The best value! Plenty of time to explore on your own. Ponchos are helpful but you still get soaked.

This tour was amazing. Our guide was informative and very engaging. The winery stop was interesting. The falls were stunning especially at night. Lots of free time to wander the town - very much designed like a mini Las Vegas. The dinner was Ok But wouldn't do it again. Many other better options.

This was billed as better than the day trip, having not done a day trip I can't say, however this experience was frankly outstanding, the quick visit to the winery for ice wine was great, loads of time at the falls, no queue at the boat trip, stunning, you will get wet, guaranteed, but not surprising. The buffet was outstanding. Loads of free time as well to look around. Not to forget the tour guide who was keen, knowledgeable and very amusing, this was a holiday of a lifetime and this trip did not disappoint.... If you can afford it the helicopter option is worth every penny.

Really enjoyed, picked up right from hotel no worries. Tour guide told us exactly what to do and where to be so we had plenty of time to see the town out on our own to do some shopping and fun things.

The vineyard visit was OK as a break in the journey, but the wine very expensive. However, the falls were spectacular and the buffet dinner superb. Boat trip was included and there was plenty of time to explore. Don't normally like coach travel, but this was comfortable. Worth the money.

Wonderful trip - food fantastic, falls spectacular, fireworks beautiful. Only would advise that the seats at the back of the coach against the back wall were very uncomfortable for the long journey back !

I like how our tourguide David sorry, I might got it wrong, i am really bad with names who was very professional and knowledgable, ANDDDDD humours. You know you dont always remember everything the tourguide covered during the trip, however, you knew at least you should be given adequate information and knowledge while you were visiting amazing places like this. The trip was great. We went for wine-tasting, no pressuring buying any of the products there which I really appreciated you know what I am referring to. But they were nice wine, and I regretted that I did not get one. The buffet was very good I would say. I've been to other buffets provided by tours, they sucked. This was in Sheraton, with nice view and very good food. Plenty of time after dinner to chill and walk around. Amazing boat trip to the Falls as well. We were blessed by the amazing sunny weather, so got beautiful photos with rainbow over the Falls. Just one thing, I was not very impressed by the fireworks. It was nice over the Falls, but just a few minutes and maybe i had high expectations. It was good, but just not THAT impressed. Anyways, nothing can be perfect. I would 100 definitely recommend this trip to all my friends who'd like to go Niagara Falls. Thanks for the great trip! P.S. Greyhound service was good as well.

Great experience, I wish I could give more than 5 stars! This was my first time coming to Canada with my girlfriend, and of course we wanted to see what the falls were all about, after doing some research, this was the best choice we could have chosen! David, our tour guide, was excellent, very friendly and out going, explaining any questions and giving us background knowledge on Canada and the events that happened in earlier years. We boarded the bus at the grey hound station, only a 2 minute walk from our Chelsea hotel. Departure from the bus station, our first stop was at a wine yard. I am not a big wine drinking myself, nor my girlfriend, but we were given a rare wine to try, called Ice wine which was amazing! You stop at this wine yard for approx 20 minutes, giving you just enough time to try wine, and shop around the gift shop where you can purchase wine, glasses etc. Leaving the wine yard, we than made our way to Niagra Falls. Arriving at the falls, we were given just under an hour to get out and get right up near the falls to take pictures, look around, and shop at the gift stores they have right on site. Coming back to the bus, we were than driven to a high class hotel, to eat at a gorgeous buffet. They had every food imaginable, musscles, shrimp, chicken, pork, rice, veggies, pizza, pasta etc! The chefs were very friendly and amazing cooks, everything I ate was perfect. The deserts are cheese cake, chocolate cake, carrot cake, donuts, chocolate water fall etc! After dinner, we than all met up in the lobby and walked towards the falls again, this time being a bit later. We boarded a ship that took us right up into the falls for great pictures, thank god they gave us a poncho becuase you get SOAKED! The winds are like a hurricane! Once off the boat, you are given approx. 3 hours to do what you want, at this time its night time, and the falls are lit up. At 10PM they set off large fireworks over the lit up falls which was awesome for pictures!
