What you'll do

In this trip, you'll explore not only the Niagara Falls but some of the major historic landmarks in #Niagara Escarpment area that majority of tourists are not aware of.

Our first destination will be "Niagara Glen (The Gorge)", which was created by erosive power of the falls over 10,000 years ago. Here you'll see 400 million years old Limestone Rocks that contains fossilized coral and other species. Then we'll take a small hike in the woods to see the 'Historic Cannon' that was used in battle of 1812. "Laura Secord Homestead” is our next destination. Laura Secord ranked 35th among the Top 100 "Greatest Canadians" for showing her bravery in the 'Battle of Beaverdams'. After that, we'll go for wine tasting in a family owned cozy brewery where you'll learn about the unique steps of making "Ice Wine", starting from harvesting the frozen grapes to the entire process. We'll have lunch in a local family restaurant that serves mouthwatering Canadian and Mexican cuisines (extra cost).

Our final destination is world famous "#Niagara Falls"...Here you will have plenty of time to enjoy the scenic beauty of this wonder of the nature. Get yourself wet in the mist, observe the giant rainbow on the skyline. Indulge yourself. We will spend approximately 2 hours on the falls and explore every inch from inside out. I am pretty sure you will remember these memories for the rest of your life.

Travel is always in my blood. As a result, I traveled a lot of places across the world. My way of visiting a place is to experience the history, culture, food and lifestyle of people. I believe, the best way of exploring a place is by walking or biking and interacting with the locals. I enjoyed city of New York by walking/biking for 3 days. I took a full day trek in the gorge of Grand Canyon.
If you ask me to describe in one sentence that how do I like to travel, the answer is, I like to visit casinos like a great gambler, restaurants like a expert diner, and hiking the trails like a pro hiker. About myself, I am a licensed tour guide for Niagara region. Also I am first-aid and CPR certified. I love to take my guests to the most exiting places in the #Niagara area, share my experiences with them and see the happiness in their faces.

Where you'll be

I'll show you a rare historic landmark of Laura Secord Homestead. Heroine of the War of 1812, Laura walked 32km through American battle lines to inform British forces of an American attack. Then we'll take a small hike in the woods to see the cannon that was used in the Battle of Beaverdams. We'll also explore Niagara Glen(The Gorge) to witness 400 million years old limestone that contain fossilized corals. Finally, we'll enjoy the Niagara Falls.

The tour with Abi was superb, he had the agenda thoughtfully planned. From promptness in pickup to walking along beautiful trails while telling great stories about past events in Niagara. Abi was a superb tour guide who kept us engaged and gave us a great opportunity to experience the beauty of the fall. It would have been a herculean task if Abi hadn't come to the rescue. From hiking, to wine tasting, to historical places in Niagara, lunch, and finally full view of the fall. I will recommend Abi for anyone going to Niagara for the first time and plans to have a superb experience.

Abijit's experience is something different from other Niagara tours. He knows a lot about histories, areas, and secrets of Niagara. You are not only going to famous water fall, but also going for trekking and winery. The ice wine he told me was really great. Of course the waterfall is outstanding, too. Thank you for your kindness. I highly recommend this is for Niagara tour.
