Start off your tour with a view of the Falls from Niagara Parkway. Stand at the brink of the Horseshoes Falls for an amazing view of the Niagara River.

You could take the Hornblower Niagara boat cruise up the Niagara River. Get up-close views of all the 3 waterfalls on this thrilling boat ride. When the Hornblower boat ride is not operational during the winter months, you can either visit Skylon Tower or go for Journey Behind the Falls.

Take a scenic drive in the Tesla X on Niagara Parkway, which runs along the Niagara River. Stop by some of the attractions on Niagara Parkway – the Butterfly Conservatory, Whirlpool Rapids, Queenston Heights Park and Brock’s Monument.

Sit back in the eco-friendly Tesla X and enjoy the drive to picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake. Stroll through the tree-lined streets of this quaint little town with lakefront patios, Victorian era buildings, antique shops, cake shops and pubs.

There are many wineries in Niagara-on-the-Lake. If you are interested in wines, you and your group can take a tour of a winery and taste premium VQA wines crafted by the winery. If you like the wines, you can purchase some bottles of wine and ice wines.

The Tesla X is environment friendly and makes your tour around Niagara Falls extra special.

Some of the other options that you have are a lunch at the Sheraton Fallsview Restaurant, visiting attractions in Clifton Hill, and seeing some of the nature reserves and parks in Niagara Falls.

At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back safe and sound at your hotel.
