Get front-row views of the breathtaking Niagara Falls

You're on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, the mighty Horseshoe Falls roaring in the distance. But you won’t have to fight the crowds for a decent view – with this skip-the-line tour, you'll be whisked onto a Niagara City Cruises boat like royalty with special first access to the elevator. Priority boarding means you’ll be at the front and center of this cruise viewing the breathtaking beauty of the Falls after being taken down 19 stories into the Niagara Gorge. While you're exploring, your English-speaking guide will take you through Niagara Falls' fascinating and must-see landmarks like the 3 iconic Falls – Horseshoe, American, and Bridal – and the Rainbow Bridge, and the Queen Victoria Place.

Walk through tunnels to the Journey Behind the Falls

The 3.5-hour guided tour is packed with more surprises than you can imagine! You'll get pre-reserved entry to the secret Journey Behind the Falls tunnels, where you can walk through tunnels right behind the cascading waters of the mighty Horseshoe Falls itself. You may even see a cruise boat inching closer to the Falls with tiny people dressed in red ponchos. This one-of-a-kind Niagara Falls experience is equal parts thrilling, informative, and totally unique, letting you get to know the world’s most popular falls from up close.
