Niagara Fun Tours harnesses a multipassenger vehicle to transport falls-goers on guided expeditions around the radiant scenery of area light displays. Adventures kick off with a spin along the Niagara Parkway that treats eyes to an effulgent buffet of more than two million glimmering lights and thousands of hitchhiking fireflies. Sightseers then shuttle up the Skylon Tower to view the illuminated falls from above and, on Friday nights and the occasional Saturday night, to bathe in the colourful glow of firework displays from inside or on the outdoor observation deck. Guides then whisk their merrymaking flocks to the seasonal display at the Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse, granting them a chance to wander among a host of holiday-themed topiaries, carved bushes, and lush tropical blooms.
After excursions roll past the Dufferin Islands’ twinkling light exhibitions, vehicles pull up to the Table Rock Welcome Centre for a complimentary ice-wine tasting. Tourists wend along the awe-inspiring observation deck and admire the majesty of Horseshoe Falls’ illuminated cascades. Niagara Fun Tours permits guests to bring along their own balmy libations and snacks to bolster spirits and prevent stomachs from interrupting the tour with incessant honking.
