Niagara Falls Day Tour FAQ

What’s the best way to get to Niagara Falls with 35 students?

There are public transit options available (Greyhound and Go Transit), but neither drops you off right at the falls and the logistics of getting 35 students on and off are a bit of a nightmare. Our famous Niagara Falls day trip is offered at 45 dollars per person for students, and group rates are always available. Relax and enjoy while we take care of all the details.

If you’re looking for a private tour, we charter buses of all shapes and sizes. Give us a call at 416-516-7827 and we will happily make sure you and your group enjoy everything the falls has to offer.

I’m interested in going on one of your tours but I’m visiting from out of town and am not too familiar with the city. Is there a way that I could arrange to be picked up the morning of the tour?

Of course! We do pick-ups at most hotels in the dowtown core: we’ll come right to the main lobby. To make sure that we do pick-up at your hotel, give our office a call and we’ll be happy to help you get on your way. Alternatively, we always make a pick-up at 277 Front Street West, which is at the corner of Front and John. As always, for all tour inquiries, give us a call at 416-516-7827.

When we get to Niagara Falls, we’re going to have all kinds of time on our hands…what should we do with ourselves?

There are all sorts of great attractions available at the falls, including: The Maid of the Mist (seasonal), Skylon Tower, Journey Behind the Falls and more! The best part is that we sell discounted tickets for all the best attractions, so make sure to ask your driver how you can make the most out of your time at Niagara Falls.

Niagara Falls is a good hour and a half away from downtown Toronto, what kind of vehicle would we be travelling in? I want to be able to kick up my feet.

Our tours are all conducted in the highest quality air conditioned luxury coaches so that you can spend your time seeing the sites and learning about the history of Niagara Falls in comfort. But don’t get too cozy, we’d hate for you to doze off and miss some really interesting stuff!

Do your Niagara tours run through the winter?

This is one of the five most common questions we get here, especially as the winter season approaches. And yes, we do run our tour all throughout the winter. With fully-equipped luxury coaches, you will always be traveling in comfort, regardless of weather conditions.

There’s a certain charm to the falls in the wintertime, as you can see here. Don’t let a cold day prevent you from enjoying one of the world’s great natural wonders!

What kind of clothing will we need for our tour?

That really depends on the season and, well, how warm you like it. Our tour does run year-round, and there is an obvious difference in the clothing needed for July versus January. That being said, we recommend dressing in layers that you can easily remove if need be. The Maid of the Mist boat tour provides a rain jacket, but the rest is up to you.

Do you sell discounted tickets to some of the attractions in Niagara Falls?

We sure do! We have discounted tickets available for the Maid of the Mist, the Skylon Tower and Niagara Helicopter tours. You can purchase the tickets from either your driver or your guide on the bus itself. We accept cash and most major credit cards, so there’s no reason to miss out on the things that make Niagara Falls so great.

What type of bus is used for transporting us to Niagara Falls?

Star Coach uses only the highest quality luxury coach buses. After all, we want you to enjoy yourselves and the informative commentary provided by our guides. What better way than in a climate-controlled coach bus with all the expected amenities?

I want to book my tour ahead of time, what are the steps I need to take?

A: Booking ahead of time is always a good idea to make sure that you get a spot on the tour. The first thing you need to do is pick a date. Our tour runs year-round, so choosing a day that will accommodate your schedule should be a piece of cake. The second step is to give our office a call at 416-516-7827. One of our representatives will verify there is space available on the day requested, make the booking, and then provide you with a confirmation number. We have a number of downtown pick-up locations: our representative will gladly help you find the one that is most convenient for you.

Et voila. When the day of your trip arrives, just be sure to be at the pick-up location on time and with your confirmation number. And that’s it, you’re on your way!

Can your bus accommodate my luggage?

It is often possible for us to accommodate traveler’s luggage, however it is necessary to call ahead to make sure that there is still room available on the bus. Remember, when calling, if you can include the dimensions of your bag, this will be very helpful in determining how much space is available. Our guests’ comfort and security is always at the top of our priorities: we will endeavour to accomodate your needs as best we can.

How long does it take to get to Niagara Falls from Toronto?

This is one of the most common questions that we get here at Star Coach services. It takes about 90 minutes for our buses to get to the falls from the downtown core, assuming good traffic. This last point is crucial, and especially so in determining our return time. We strive to get you to the Falls with as much time to enjoy them as possible, but traffic can be trying. Just know we’re always doing our best!
