About the tour

Experience the thrilling sights and sounds of majestic Niagara Falls as we get up close and personal, and maybe even a little wet! Join me to discover why Niagara Falls is known as the Honeymoon Capital of the World, delighting thousands of newlyweds each year; a tradition that began over 200 years ago with some very high-profile couples. Find out how hydroelectric power from the Niagara River has fuelled the growth in Ontario and the USA, and how it has changed the Niagara Falls you see today. You’ll be surprised by how such a powerful force of nature has been tamed and manipulated to meet our needs. But where does Nikola Tesla fit in? Come along on this tour to learn about Tesla’s contributions and to see how he is honoured in Niagara Falls today. Of course, we can’t forget about the powerful forces that shaped this area, the colourful history, and the interesting tales surrounding this world-famous landmark. This is a unique time to visit because there are absolutely no tourists, so we’ll have Niagara Falls all to ourselves.


Meet neil

Neil is new to guiding, but was bitten by the travel bug early in life and has had travel fever ever since. He grew up in Southern Ontario and knows it well, but he has also explored most corners of Canada’s provinces and territories and six out of seven continents. He especially loves getting off the beaten path and discovering the unusual. Neil genuinely enjoys sharing the special places and events that make Southern Ontario and Canada such fantastic places to live or visit. As a photographer, Neil gets most inspired when travelling and uses his photographer’s eye to highlight the beauty of Southern Ontario, Canada for Heygo Voyagers. Skating and cycling tours may even be in the mix. Travel transforms us, especially international travel. We learn and grow, we gain empathy and tolerance. We develop a greater appreciation for the new and the old, and we reap new insights into ourselves, others we meet, and the world. Let’s explore together!


What to expect

Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Niagara Falls with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.

This was a visually stunning tour. At times I felt like I was actually there right on the edge of the Falls. Really enjoyable tour !
