Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that stretch across the international border between Ontario, Canada and New York, USA. The Falls are renowned for their beauty and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power. They are also known as a favorite spot for wedding ceremonies and daredevils. The first daredevil to jump the brink was Sam Patch in October 1829. Calling himself “The Yankee Leapster,” Patch jumped from a high tower into the gorge and survived.
These days, Niagara Falls tours are on the bucket list for many and, as one of the top natural wonders of the world, the city receives a large number of tourists every year. There are many reasons to visit, not the least of which is to see its stunning natural beauty. The Table Rock Welcome Centre is a fantastic place to take pictures and see the incredible cascade up close. Most attractions are family-friendly and offer food and fun that are sure to satisfy you and your kids.
A growing trend among travellers called ecotourism is about travelling responsibly by being environmentally friendly and using local guides, hotels, and services. Fortunately, local companies tend to offer better and more interactive experiences that give you enough autonomy to have the most comfortable experience. If you’re interested in ecotourism, consider a walking guide through Prospect Park and Goat Island, or a pedicab experience.
Before you book your vacation, make sure you’ve chosen the right company to deliver the perfect experience. The most important things to look for are a good reputation and a reasonable price. If you’re hoping for a relaxing or romantic vacation, you don’t want to wind up packed on a bus with a bunch of young children. On the other hand, a family vacation could be more enjoyable if you explore the area in a private van, a service offered by See Sight Tours.
Everyone’s dealt with the crowds of a jam-packed sightseeing bus, but if that’s not how you want to spend your vacation, spare yourself the headaches and do some research on boutique guided experiences. A Niagara Falls tour package from See Sight Tours can be yours to plan. Take a helicopter ride in the skies above the city and cruise below the crashing water on a Hornblower cruise. You can visit Terrapin Point, Luna Island, and the Crow’s Nest on the American side, or the lights and excitement of Clifton Hill on the Canadian side.
A guide can bring your trip to life — sometimes in ways you might not expect. They’re normally recruited from within the local community, which means they have a deep and passionate knowledge of the area’s history, culture, and traditions. They are also able to provide up-to-date factual information and answer any questions that you have about the site or attraction. The guides at See Sight Tours are full of stories about daredevils, tightrope walkers, barrel jumpers, and historical events from the War of 1812. Book your dream holiday experience today.
