Your magical Niagara Falls – Canadian Rainbow Illuminations Night Tour begins when you are collected from your hotel.

You’ll experience the spectacular nightly illumination of the mighty Falls on this 4 hour sightseeing trip. Your guide will share the area’s history and facts on a scenic and informative bus tour.

See Canadian Horseshoe Falls, where approximately 90 per cent of the Niagara River flows. The curving, horseshoe-shaped crest is 2,201 feet wide and the water passes over the crest at about 20 mph, producing great clouds of mist.

At the Niagara River Gorge, view the Mighty Whirlpool and be awed by the intensity of these Class Six rapids.

You’ll visit Table Rock House, a retail and observation complex at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. This is the closest view point to the Falls on the Canadian side, so you’ll hear the thundering roar of the torrent.

The tour takes in Queen Victoria Park, centerpiece of the Niagara Falls recreational tourist area, and the focal point for the annual winter Festival of Lights.

Another lovely place is the Sir Harry Oakes Gardens. Oakes, an entrepreneur and investor, donated the site to the Niagara Parks Commission in 1936.

You’ll ascend the Skylon Tower – soaring 775 feet (26 meters) from the bottom of the Falls. From the top you will see unbeatable views of the American Falls and Horseshoe Falls. The Skylon complex, which has a 3D/4D theater and two restaurants, still retains much of its look and feel from the 1970s and 80s. The tower features three outside mounted "Yellow Bug" elevators that can carry passengers to the top in 52 seconds.

The highlight of the night includes a 40 minute cruise after dark, along the lower Niagara River on board the Niagara City Cruises Fireworks Cruise. From the deck of the catamaran, you’ll enjoy views of the nightly illumination of the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and Horseshoe Falls, and watch the nightly fireworks show as it lights up the sky above Niagara.

Enjoy the nightly boat cruise along the lower Niagara River on board the Niagara City Cruises Fireworks Cruise.

After spending a total of around 4 hours at Niagara Falls, you will be dropped back at the pick-up point.
