A trip to Southern Ontario would not be complete without a visit to this most beautiful of the world's wonders! The Niagara region boasts some of the world's most beautiful scenery and flavourful wines.


In the Niagara area, a detailed tour will begin, outlining the historical, cultural, and geographical highlights of the region. Board the Maid of the Mist and experience the majesty of the Falls close up. Lunch will be provided in a restaurant overlooking the Falls - a wonderful way to relax. Afterwards, browse through the gift shops or simply just enjoy the view.


The return to Toronto may, if time permits, be routed through Niagara-on-the-Lake. Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of the oldest settlements in Ontario, famous for the War of 1812 between Canada and the United States. The town has been beautifully restored to depict its heritage. En route, the tour follows the Niagara River, passes the Whirlpool Rapids, as well as the historic sites of the Brock Monument and Laura Secord House.

The perfect activity to capture a glimpse of the many wonderful sites available in Toronto! This "get acquainted" tour includes such famous attractions as Nathan Phillips Square, Old and New City Halls, Queen's Park, the four city block shopping complex Eaton Centre, the Victorian splendour of Cabbagetown, Allan Gardens, Queen's Park, Royal Ontario Museum and the trendy Yorkville area. Next, visit one of the most popular tourist attractions in Toronto - Casa Loma. Sir Henry Pellatt built this castle between 1911 and 1914, with every painstaking attempt to replicate the homes of European royalty. The childhood dream of his took three years and $3.5 million to complete. The S8-room creation includes gold plated bathroom fixtures, a pipe organ larger than those in many cathedrals, underground tunnels, and secret passageways. This attraction is not to be missed! On the way to the last stop, you will pass the Annex, Chinatown, Art Gallery of Ontario, Roy Thomson Hall, the CN Tower, Rogers Centre and St. Lawrence Market and Hall. Your last stop will be in Toronto's Distillery District. It was founded in 1832 by William Gooderham and James Worts. The Distillery was a venue where movies like Chicago, The Recruit, Cinderella Man, and many more of your favourite movies were filmed. Enjoy lunch on your own at one of the restaurants or cafes that The Distillery District has to offer.
