Skylon Tower
Niagara Falls Tour Attraction

Available in:
Summer Tour ☀️
Winter Tour ❄️
45 Minutes⌛
The Skylon Tower takes you on an exciting journey 226 meters or 775 feet above the water. There are 3 floor at the top of the tower – the top one is dedicated to the observation deck and the lower levels are restaurants. You’ll enjoy an impressive elevator ride to the top and then be able to see the waterfalls from high above. Most people spend around 45-minutes at the tower. When the sky is clear you can even see Toronto across Lake Ontario! The Skylon Tower observation deck tickets can be added to your package when you are at Niagara Falls. The Skylon Tower costs around $20 per ticket. PRO TIP: Don’t book advance tickets! We advise deciding on the day of your trip just to make sure there is good visibility and the skies are clear.

    3 to 4 hours of free time in Niagara Falls

    You will have around 3 hours (winter) to 4 hours (summer) of free time in the waterfalls area of Niagara Falls. Your licensed tour guide will provide you with information and advice on how to spend your time. Each attraction you do will take around 1 - 1.5 hours. There are many great restaurants for lunch, with plenty of options for sit-down restaurants or fast food. Your tour guide can also tell you about lunch options that have beautiful views overlooking the waterfalls.

    Add skip-the-line tickets for popular attractions when booking your tour, or purchase tickets on the day of your tour. In the summer (this year it is March 28 - November 30) we include the Hornblower boat cruise, a 20-minute ride into the mist of the Canadian Horseshoe waterfalls. When the boat is not running, we include admission to Journey Behind the Falls (a viewing balcony and tunnels that are right next to the Canadian Horseshoe waterfalls).

    Other optional and popular attractions you can add when you are in Niagara Falls include the Skylon Tower observation deck (approx. $20 per ticket) or a 12-minute helicopter ride over the waterfalls ($151 per ticket). If you are interested in these options ask your tour guide. Most people don't add these extras and instead opt to explore the beauty of Niagara Falls at their own pace, take a scenic walk along the waterfalls and check out the Clifton Hill strip. No matter how you spend your free time, you will have a fun and memorable experience.

    Time - 10:50 - 14:30


    Scenic Niagara Photo Stops
    Enjoy a scenic drive across the famous Niagara Parkway with commentary from your tour guide, and scenic stops at our favorite landmarks. Your tour guide will take photos of you along the way. The stops vary depending on the time of year but generally include 2-3 of below. The Niagara Whirlpool, Niagara's giant floral clock, the huge Canadian and American hydro-power stations and the majestic Queenston Heights scenic lookout point. The floral clock in particular is only available in the summer time when flowers are blooming.

    Time - 14:30 - 15:10


    Return to Toronto

    Tired from a long and memorable day? You'll have a chance to rest on the way back to Toronto! Our drive will usually take around 2 to 2.5 hours on the return trip. Depending on traffic conditions, you should arrive back in Mississauga around 16:30 or Toronto around 17:30. We’ll get back early enough that you can enjoy the evening in Toronto.

    We strive to make this a very efficient and value-packed day. Our pricing is highly competitive compared to other tours and also public transportation, taxis, etc. If you aren't sure if this tour is right for you or if it's worth the price, check out our guide for how to get to Niagara Falls from Toronto to see screenshots comparing pricing and timing with other transportation methods like the train, bus or Uber. We aren't shy to share all possible options with you because we are confident in our value and pricing. Also, if you are looking for a multi-day trip instead of our 1-day tour, that guide can help you figure out different travel options!
