Treat Yourself To An Amazing Light Show In Niagara Falls

In the summer evenings the Niagara Falls are lit up in spectacular colours at 10 p.m., you are treated to a dazzling fireworks display held over the Niagara Falls.

On our ToNiagara Day and Evening Tour from Hamilton to Niagara Falls, you will board the Voyage To The Falls Cruise by Hornblower, where you will get up close and personal with Niagara Falls. The Voyage to the Falls Cruise is perhaps the most popular attraction because people love to witness the power of the Falls up close (you are provided rainponchos to keep you dry). ToNiagara passengers are given VIP access to the Hornblower boat and can skip any long lineup.

We then travel back in time to the picturesque town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. This Victorian era town still retains much of its 19th century architecture. You will learn about the history of Niagara-on-the-Lake and visit some historical monuments.

No Hamilton to Niagara Falls day and evening tour is complete without visiting one of the region's many wineries, where you will get a behind-the-scenes look at how grapes are grown, crushed, and pressed to produce some of the world's finest wines.

Finally, (in the summer and fall, you will witness a dazzling fireworks display over the Niagara Falls (fireworks begin at 10 PM on May 20, 2024, until October 10, 2024, every day) before you are dropped off back in Hamilton.
