Are you in Toronto on a busy schedule but do not want to miss the chance to see Niagara Falls?
Luckily for you, there are Niagara tours for people like you. Many tour operators offer half day tours of Niagara Falls from Toronto for the busy visitor.
What most tourists do not know is that Niagara Falls has a very interesting historical background.
It was probably first discovered by Native American tribes living in the area. The French explorer, Father Louis Hennepin, was the first European to record its existence when he saw it in December 1678.
Waterfalls are some of the most beautiful natural formations on this planet. Waterfalls are formed by rivers. Rivers flowing over rock cause erosion of the soft rock underneath which get dislodged and the river falls vertically along with the rocks, thus creating a waterfall.
