Niagara and Toronto Tours

Niagara & Toronto Tours was established in 1978 and was originally a small airplane sightseeing operation based out of the Toronto Island Airport. Passengers would take aerial tours of the fast rising Toronto Skyline and the Niagara Region. As the Airline Industry drastically changed over the next 15 years we were forced to take our show on the road, literally!

Multiple Niagara Falls Tour

With More Than 250,000+ Passengers

Niagara & Toronto Tours has been running Niagara Falls tours since 1978 and have safely carried over 250,000 passengers from downtown Toronto!

Now into our 6th decade of operations we enjoy the most beneficial and rewarding tour experiences throughout the entire Niagara region. Under expert care from your qualified, insured and entertaining tour guide, you will enjoy a perfectly curated tour with the best possible timing! We do not waste your hard earned vacation time and money with unwanted souvenir shops. You will be returned into downtown Toronto with plenty of time to relax before your evening plans. Our long standing tradition of quality day tours has often been replicated but not yet duplicated. You may only visit Niagara Falls once; you should do it right, you should do it with us!

The Tour Guides

We Take Great Pride in Hiring & Maintaining our Guide Roster!

Renzo Picture

Renzo is “The Original Guide.”

He has been with Niagara & Toronto Tours since day 1. Born in Montreal, he left for Toronto in 1977 with only three things: his wife, a dream and a pilot license. He turned those three into a rewarding and long lasting career that is still going strong today.

In addition to his genuine hospitality Renzo speaks fluent English, French and Italian. There are only a hand full of people that know and understand the tourism industry like Renzo, and when you are on board with him you will understand why!
