This exciting tour will begin at 12:00 from the hotel with the boarding of a WEGO bus. The bus will first take you for a tour of the Floral Show House to see its collection of orchids, succulents, and other tropical plant species. Flying throughout the greenery are tropical birds that may sing for your entertainment! Next stop will be a ride across the Niagara River Gorge on board the Whirlpool Aero Car (pictured). You’ll be transported through the air in an antique cable car, while far below the torrent of water abruptly changes directions and creates one of the world’s mostmesmerizing phenomena. This leg of the journey is weather permitting. Following this experience, you’ll make a stop at the very popular floral clock (built in 1950) on your way to the final leg of the journey at the Butterfly Conservatory. This magical attraction features over 2,000 colorful tropical butterflies floating freely among lush, exotic blossoms and greenery. Return to hotel for 16:00.
