Detailed Tour Itinerary
Drive By American Falls
One of three waterfalls that make up the Niagara Falls, the American Falls are completely within the state of New York. The Falls lie to the far left of the Horseshoe Falls in the U.S. State territory, and the estimated water flow over the Falls is 75,000 gallons per second—10% of Niagara Falls total water flow!
Drive By Canadian Horseshoe Falls
The largest of the three waterfalls making up the Niagara Falls, the Horseshoe Falls in Canada are 173 feet tall and 2,600 feet wide! Roughly 90% of the Niagara River flows directly over the Horseshoe Falls, producing 600,000 gallons of water per second.
Drive By Konica Minolta Tower Centre
Built in 1962, the Konica Minolta Tower Centre is located in the fall view of the district of Niagara Falls, Ontario. As the first of the modern observation towers erected near the brink of the Falls, the tower features an indoor observation deck, restaurant, wedding chapel, and hotel. In 2010 the tower underwent renovations and the banner displaying Konica Minolta was removed and replaced with Tower Hotel.
Drive By Niagara River
The Niagara River flows in a northern direction from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario, completing a distance of about 35 miles. The Niagara River makes up the boundary between the United States and Canada, separating the state of New York from Ontario. Halfway along the river lies Niagara Falls, a major tourist attraction.
Drive By The Rainbow Bridge
Stretching across the Niagara River Gorge, the Rainbow Bridge at Niagara Falls is a world-famous tourist site.
