Day Trip (Saturday August 22)
Niagara Excursion (8:30AM-10:00PM; $226.00): Niagara Falls is one of the world’s natural wonders. With the highest flow of any waterfall on our planet, the falls are a spectacular sight. Your journey begins with an IMAX presentation about the 12,000 year history of human interaction with the falls. You will next visit the Daredevil Museum and the Skylon Tower Observation Deck for breathtaking views. A highlight of the day will be the Hornblower Journey to the Falls boat tour, which brings you close enough to get nicely dampened. This will be followed by free time in downtown Niagara Falls. Possible activities include visiting Bird Kingdom or enjoying a Fun House for those traveling with children. This exceptional day trip will finish with wine tasting and dinner at a local winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
