For a tour that never grows old!  See the many wonders of Niagara Falls for a tour full of adventure and awesome sights.

Niagara Falls, one of the “seven scenic wonders of the world”.  The sight and sound of which never ceases to amaze the visitors to this majestic place.

Bird Kingdom Niagara Falls is the world’s largest, indoor, free flying Aviary. Located on the scenic Niagara Gorge, and only a few minutes walk from the Falls, Bird Kingdom hosts a diverse collection of almost 500 birds representing nearly 80 species from around the world, many of them threatened or endangered in the wild. Bird Kingdom’s authentic walk-thru environments create an intimate, up-close interaction between you and free-flying birds, including opportunities to personally interact with the different species. The Main Atrium is truly a sight to behold and is a multi-level rainforest environment, complete with 35 foot tall Palm Trees, a 40 foot tall waterfall, ponds and streams! There is nothing else like it in North America!

A visit to the Butterfly Museum is a must…A butterfly is the closest we will ever see to flowers in flight. Their meandering flight patterns seem to paint the room with color. Exotic greenery and flowing water set the stage for the fluttering and soaring of several hundred butterflies. Dozens of different species of butterflies move through the climate-controlled 11,000 sq. ft. conservatory. Enjoy the butterflies as you make your way along a  600 ft. network of paths. In the Emergence area, watch as the butterflies make their way out of their chrysalides. There is a wide variety of foliage inside the conservatory, so the butterflies always have a source of food from the plants in bloom. As you walk along the pathways, look closely and carefully to observe the grace and agility of these beautiful creatures of flight. You might even catch a glimpse of them feeding, uncoiling their mouthparts to sip nectar from the colorful flowers.  If you wear bright colors they just might land on you!

Hornblower (Formally the Maid of the Mist)…Experience Canada’s natural wonder at Niagara’s newest attraction aboard a state-of-the-art 700-passenger catamaran for an intimate experience with the mighty Niagara Falls. Hold onto your heart and keep your eyes wide open because you’re in for the thrill of a lifetime! Their intimate Niagara Falls boat tours bring you as close as possible to the breathtaking flow of water, power and mist that is the magnificent Niagara Falls. Within the Niagara Great Gorge we’ll journey past the American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and into the very heart of the famous Horseshoe Falls for an exhilarating experience with the waterfalls that make up the famous natural wonder, Niagara Falls.

Journey Behind the Falls…The sound is like thunder; the sight is awe-inspiring! Take an elevator down 150 ft through bedrock to tunnels leading to the Cataract Portal and Great Falls Portal, one-third of the way behind the massive sheet of water. Walk behind the heart of Niagara, and stand in the mist where the mighty Horseshoe Falls tumbles from 13 stories above!  Walk on Lower Observation Deck at the very foot of the Falls and experience the awesome spectacle of one-fifth of the world’s fresh water crashing down to the basin below. During summer daylight hours, over 6 million cubic meters of water thunders over the brink every minute, traveling up to 68 miles per hour! (Google)
