About the Tour

ShopDineTour Niagara is the best way to enjoy the spectacular natural beauty of Niagara Falls and the surrounding region. Our tour includes an enthusiastic narration delivered by a licensed tour guide who tells you all about the Niagara region and its history, answers questions, and provides helpful advice. A ShopDineTour Niagara ticket is the best way to experience the Falls because it includes a ticket for the famous Hornblower Niagara boat tour, a seasonal attraction that runs from May through October. At times of the year when the Hornblower Niagara is not in operation, guests get to visit the stunning Skylon Tower instead, an attraction with unbeatable panoramic views of the Falls. With stops at Table Rock, the Niagara Whirlpool, Queenston Heights and Niagara-on-the-Lake, guests can be sure to get the full Niagara experience with us. But wait, there's more! On the way back, everyone gets to visit to an award-winning winery and enjoy a free ice wine tasting.

After guests have explored Table Rock, the tour continues along to the Hornblower Niagara, a world-renowned boat tour that gets you as close as possible to the impressive Niagara Falls. Between mid-October and May when the Hornblower Niagara is not in operation, guests are treated instead to the Skylon Tower, a popular attraction with fantastic views and countless photo opportunities. After this exciting experience, everyone gets ample free time to enjoy the Falls and surrounding area. We can also drop adventurous passengers off at the Niagara Helicopters, a thrilling and unforgettable way to experience the Falls!

After getting back on the bus, a few more great attractions are waiting to be discovered. One of these is a lookout above the Niagara Whirlpool, where guests get the chance to marvel at the beauty of this fascinating geographical wonder. Another such visit is Queenston Heights, a hotspot for hiking and picnicking where guests can relax and enjoy the area's scenic beauty.

The memorable day concludes with a scenic drive back into downtown Toronto while continuing to enjoy the narration of a knowledgeable and entertaining guide.
