The falls were fantastic, this is a must see! Our ghide was very knowledgable and had everything well organized. We also made a stop at Niagara on the lake which is a gorgeous little town.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

How long does the entire day trip take from start to finish? Do you pick up from hotels by the airport? What about private residence in Toronto area?

Sorry it has taken a while to get back to answering your question. To the best of my knowledge, pick up is only from Hard Rock Cafe in central Toronto or from outside main station. Cheers

The boat ride is 30 mins total and your stop at Niagara is about an hour tops - by the time you get on the boat and do the trip the hour goes quick. There are areas to sit and get a drink/something to eat right by the boat... More
How big is the coach, we don't want a large bus with 30/40 people. What is the general number of visitors in June? Thinking June 8th for two passengers. Do you pick up from hotels, or do we need to meet somewhere. Thanks
