Do you have tours from Niagara Falls, ON Canada?

With a prior email request, we might be able to pick you up for a tour starting from Niagara Falls.

Queen Tour’s Niagara Falls tour is a small-group tour, meaning you will be with groups of up to 6, 14 or 24. Most tour operators in Toronto use a coach bus with 48 seats. We feel that it becomes too impersonal, so we prefer a more intimate group. In our view, a tour is more enjoyable with smaller groups.

During COVID-19, we will be restricting tour guide sizes to a max of 12 people. You will experience an even more intimate experience. This is subject to change as conditions improve.

No. We arrive early in Niagara Falls before other tour groups and large groups, so lines are not long. There is no reason to pre-purchase tickets because line skip is not available. You can decide on the day of your tour which activities to participate in. Options include the Hornblower boat ride, a helicopter ride over the falls, the Skylon Tower or Journey Behind the Falls.

The Niagara Cruises boat tour operates from May to November, depending on the weather. It might operate as early as April or as late as December. Operating days may vary from September to closing. *As of now, the Niagara Cruises boat is available:

  • Every day in the summer
  • Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from September 7 – October 31
  • Closed starting November 1st

These schedules are subject to change. Click here to view the most updated schedules. In the event that the boat tour isn’t operating, we suggest doing the Journey Behind the Falls add-on. You will have a very enjoyable time. Ask your tour guide for other suggestions!

We will have around 3 hours of free time in Niagara Falls. There is time for 1 activity to be guaranteed. You might be able to do a second activity depending on lines and daily conditions. Most people prefer the Niagara Cruises boat tour in the summer and Journey Behind the Falls in the winter. Other options are available such as the Skylon Tower observation deck.

The Niagara Cruises boat tour will take about 1 hour in total. The Skylon Tower will take about 1 hour. Journey Behind the Falls will take about 1 to 1.5 hours. Times may vary depending on lines and do not include travel distance.

Yes. Ask your tour guide in advance. We can drop you off at one of our other meeting locations with prior notice.

Unfortunately, Niagara-on-the-Lake has decided to disallow all tour groups from stopping in town. The only option would be to spend an extra hour taking a shuttle bus or walking to Niagara-on-the-Lake. Although it is a nice town, it’s not worth taking away from the free time in Niagara Falls or the other tour stops. We are hoping that the town council will reconsider this decision soon. For now, we will be doing a drive-through of Niagara-on-the-Lake, so you can see the heritage town.

We may be able to accommodate this request for larger group sizes (3+) depending on the day. Make your request by emailing us before booking. We will need to adjust the tour schedule for the day to accommodate this, so we will check if it is possible for your date.

Large luggage will not fit. Small bags or carry ons can fit.

Large wheelchairs will not fit. Foldable wheelchairs are permitted if they are thin enough to fit in-between a seat.

Our Niagara Falls winter tour operates from December 1 – February 29. Please note that we must have at least 3 guests for the tour to operate. On rare occasions in the winter, we may need to cancel the tour. If you booked alone and we don’t have a tour group (2+ people), we need to move your tour to another day or refund your payment. If this is the case we will notify you with at least 24 hours’ notice of the change. We will offer you an alternate day or a full refund.

The tour is generally the same. In the winter, the itinerary will vary from day to day depending on weather conditions. Niagara Falls is beautiful in the winter and recommended.

The Niagara Cruises boat tour, a popular summer activity, is not available in the winter. Our guests normally take the Journey Behind the Falls or Skylon Tower add-ons instead.
