The Tour Details

Experience the breathtaking, natural wonder of Niagara Falls up-close, where you will have time to explore at your leisure and enjoy many fantastic photo opportunities.

On your Niagara Falls tour ride With Chariots of Fire tours, you will see the Niagara River flowing over both the American and Canadian waterfalls into the Great Gorge.

Niagara Falls is a young waterfall.  Around 12,000 years ago, at the end of the last ice age, glacial melt water filled the five great lakes.  Four of these lakes- Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Michigan and Lake Erie, drain through the Niagara River into the fifth lake- Lake Ontario, then the water flows through the Saint Lawrence River to the Atlantic Ocean.  The Niagara River is only 58 km (36 miles) long, connecting Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.  Lake Erie is 99 meters (326 feet) higher in elevation than Lake Ontario.  The combination of the large volume of water flowing through the river, together with a high drop in elevation has caused the erosion of the Niagara River Gorge and resulted in Niagara Falls.With the Niagara River acting as the border between the USA and Canada, the waterfalls are divided.

The American falls are smaller while the larger Canadian Horseshoe Falls have more than 90% of the river water flowing over them at 57 meters (188 ft) in height.  Their combined volume flowing over both falls is 28,000 cu. M (100,000 cu. Ft.) or over half a million gallons of water per second, enough to fill a million bathtubs per minute.
Your Fall for Niagara day tour includes a beautiful drive following the Niagara River to Lake Ontario.  There are four photo stops on the Niagara parkway which include the Queenston Heights, hydroelectric dams, Floral Clock and Whirlpool rapids.

Hydro-electric Dams
Two large power stations produce approx. 5 million H.P. (4 million KW) of electricity from the Niagara River. On the American side it is the Robert Moses Station, and on the Canadian side, the Sir Adam Beck Station. Water is diverted before Niagara Falls in a series of underground tunnels and canals, into two large reservoirs behind the big dams. Using the high drop of elevation back into the Niagara River Gorge, the water flows through the penstocks, driving the turbines and producing electricity. On your Niagara Falls day tour with Chariots of Fire, you will have a good view of how this takes place.

Floral Clock (Seasonal)
A favorite place for photos on your Toronto to Niagara bus tour, this electric clock was built in 1950 and consists of over 15,000 small plants imbedded close together and changed twice a year during the growing season. It is one of the world’s largest floral clocks with the face being over 12 meters (40 ft.) In diameter.

Whirlpool Rapids
At Niagara Falls, there is a 90° bend in the Niagara River. The only other big bend in the river is at the Whirlpool, another 90°. This Whirlpool is up to 35 meters (120 ft.) deep. The Whirlpool phenomenon is created by the large volume of water flowing at a fast speed. Then narrow river gorge has water moving at 40 km (25 miles) per hour with class 6 rapids- the highest rank.
