If you are coming from the USA side, you can still follow the loop tour through the Falls area and onto Niagara-on-the-Lake before looping back to the border crossing.

Niagara Falls can be overwhelming, so our professional tour guides have filled the guide with interesting and entertaining stories, loads of tips and advice on how to best spend your time and will point out places of interest as you approach them. There are 100 commentary points along the drive. Its just like driving around with a local expert.

** Once downloaded, this tour REQUIRES NO DATA to operate and activate, so you won’t incur roaming or data charges. YOU DO NOT REQUIRE A CELLULAR NETWORK CONNECTION TO TOUR!! You will not incur any data roaming charges to use this tour, even if you are from outside of Canada. The app does not work the same way as traditional Maps apps, the commentary and maps are not "beamed" into your phone.

Just download the app on Wi-Fi from your network at home or use any free Wi-Fi network. Because the app is filled with audio commentary and maps, its larger than "normal" apps. Many phone/data networks will block the download because of size - so download over a Wi-Fi network.

After you download the app it only uses GPS signal to tour. GPS signal is FREE. It comes from satellites - not cellular networks.

The on-screen map will display your position and upcoming audio points. You can also preview the tour before you arrive, or re-live your vacation after you return home.

On our drive from Toronto along the QEW, we will introduce how the Falls were created and some of the characters from its colourful history. We'll explain the most popular attractions to help you decide which ones appeal to you. After visiting the Falls, the tour continues along the Niagara Parkway, which follows the Niagara River and Gorge, where there are several excellent attractions.

The tour then visits Niagara-on-the-Lake with its stately homes, historic fort and stunning wineries. From NOTL, we rejoin the QEW where you have the choice to loop back to the Falls area to enjoy the nightlife, or to drive back to Toronto, and we'll have a whole new series of stories to keep you entertained all the way.

This tour is not just a directory but a designed tour to follow, just like how a tour guide would take you. It’s simple and entertaining; just let GyPSy provide commentary automatically as you travel.

** iPad users - please not that Wi-Fi only iPads will not activate the commentary automatically. Any iPhone or network-capable iPad will work just fine.

++ Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life - we strongly recommend taking a car charger.
