Tour Information
The tour bus will leave the hotel areas (pick up at each hotel) and drive you to the
Niagara Falls area. They will stop and drop people off at the Niagara Outlet
Shopping Malls (50 new stores this year, has over 200 stores in total).
The bus will then proceed to the Native American Seneca Niagara Casino and drop
people off there, you can choose either one of those destinations but not both.
The bus will then return to the mall and to the casino and pick you (about 3:45
PM) up so that you will be back at the hotels by 5PM.
The mall has an ample food court for lunch and the casino has an amazing buffet
as well – on your own. Lunch is not included in the tour price.
The general Seneca Niagara Casino area is within a block walking distance to the
Falls itself. The Niagara Outlet Mall is not within walking distance to the Falls.
