This tour gives you 4 hours of free time in Niagara Falls, more than any other tour! This includes time for sightseeing at the Horseshoe Falls, attractions, the Clifton Hill strip and lunch. In the summer you can add the Hornblower boat ride, a cruise that takes you deep into the heart of the Niagara Gorge and takes you right into the mist of the Horseshoe waterfalls. In the winter we make a special itinerary that includes the options of one or both of the Journey Behind the Falls or Niagara's Fury attractions. Journey Behind the Falls lets you experience the 130-year-old tunnels beneath the bedrock of the Falls and get a once-in-a-lifetime view of one-fifth of the world’s freshwater crashing down in front of you. With Niagara's Fury, you'll step inside a 4D motion theatre and discover the ancient story of Niagara Falls in this multi-sensory simulation of the last Ice Age. The temperature will drop, mist and snow will fall and you’ll be surrounded by visuals of the Niagara River.
