Tour highlights

See Niagara Falls

Located on the border between Canada and the USA, the iconic Niagara Falls are a must-see for any visitor to Toronto! Niagara Falls is actually a group of three waterfalls located on the Niagara River, where Lake Erie drains into Lake Ontario. The Horseshoe Falls sits on the border between Canada and the US, and is the largest of the three, while the smaller American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls sit entirely within the US. Take a boat trip to see the Falls up close, walk behind them and visit the museum to learn about the many daredevils who have attempted to navigate the Falls in various different vessels!
Did you know?

At the current rate of erosion, scientists have predicted that the Niagara Falls will disappear in around 50,000 years!

Visit the CN Tower

An icon of the Toronto skyline, the CN Tower is the western hemisphere’s largest free-standing structure! For over three decades, it was actually the tallest free-standing structure in the world, until it was surpassed by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. One of the main attractions of the tower is its famous glass floor, which allows visitors to look down at the city below them from 342m up!
Did you know?

The CN Tower boasts an LED illumination system which means the tower can be lit up in various colours. Throughout the year, the tower is illuminated to promote various charities and national awareness days. Lighting usually begins at sunset and ends at sunrise, except during autumn, when it finishes at midnight so as not to affect the migration of birds.

Visit the Ontario Science Centre

One of the first interactive science museums in North America, the Ontario Science Centre was designed specifically to spark people’s interest in the science around them! Learn all about space at Toronto’s only planetarium and discover how your body deals with danger. Find out what you might look like when you’re older and take a walk through a rainforest. And make sure you visit the ‘Question of Truth’ exhibit, where you’ll learn all about how beliefs and prejudices can influence science. There’s also a hydraulophone outside the entrance to the centre. This hydraulic-action pipe organ is made up of 57 water jets – to play the instrument you just have to block the flow of water from the jets!
Did you know?

More than 53 million people have visited the Ontario Science Centre since it opened in 1969.
