  • Your magical Niagara Falls – Canadian Rainbow Tour begins when you are collected from your hotel in Niagara Falls. On this 4-hour excursion you will travel by bus and your guide will share fascinating facts about Niagara Falls and the area around it. You’ll see the 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. If you are visiting from May to October, you will board the world famous “Maid of the Mist” boat for an incredible 45-minute journey into the mist and spray inside the curve of the Falls. ”Maid of the Mist” is North America's oldest tourist attraction; millions of visitors have enjoyed the boat tours since 1846. In the low season (winter), the cruise will be replaced by the “Journey Behind the Falls” experience. This takes you deep below and behind the heart of Niagara to stand in the mist where the mighty Horseshoe Falls tumble from 13 stories above! At the Niagara River Gorge, you’ll 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 located 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 water. At Queen Victoria Park, centerpiece of the Niagara Falls recreational tourist area, you’ll see gorgeous displays of daffodils and roses in-season, with many of the plantings done in a carpet-bedding design. Queen Victoria Park is also the focal point for the annual winter Festival of Lights. Another lovely area to relax and enjoy the scenery is the Sir Harry Oakes Gardens. Oakes, an entrepreneur and investor, was also a member of the Niagara Parks Commission. He donated the land at the foot of Clifton Hill and Niagara Parkway to the 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. After spending a total of around 4 hours at Niagara Falls, you will be dropped back at the pick-up point.
