Wat je gaat doen

I'll meet you in downtown Niagara Falls and together we'll escape the tourist mayhem for a bike tour in the serene, natural part of Niagara most don't even know exist. Our first stop will be a beautiful Buddhist Monastery located right at the foot of the paved bike path. This monastery is a local gem that is incredibly rewarding to visitors who find it. Since I know the monks, I'm allowed to give you a tour around.

Once we're finished up, we'll grab bikes and head straight for the scenic Niagara Parkway. We're going to be cruising along a cliff that follows the Niagara river through canyons and gorges. We’ll ride through botanical gardens, beside giant hydroelectric dams, visit a whirlpool and more. Along the way I’ll share with you quirky/fascinating tales of Niagara’s past that will definitely leave you with a newfound appreciation for the area’s history.

We'll finish our ride right on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment at at a National Historic Site - the Battlefield of Queenston. We'll spend some time walking around the grounds to take in the stunning views that overlook wine country and Lake Ontario. When finished, I'll have a ride waiting to take us back into town.

Hi there, I'm Sean! I'm a nature lover who just returned home from living 4 years abroad in Germany. While in there, I worked full time as a city tour guide in Munich and part time as an alpine guide in the Alps.

Now home, I find myself continuing my passion of meeting travelers and showing them true Canadian Nature and beauty.

I am a licensed Niagara guide.

Waar je naartoe gaat

I'll pick you up, we'll escape the hordes of tourists in Niagara and drop by a Buddhist monastery for a tour and then we'll bike along the scenic Niagara parkway. We'll be riding a bike path that follows the Niagara Gorge to the birthplace of the falls 12,000 years ago.

The tour was fun and Sean is a great tour guide. Was nice seeing the area by bike and having someone provide some historical info and local insight to the sights.

We began the day with a lovely tour of the Buddhist Temple, hearing stories, gazing up at the HUMUNGOUS Buddha, counting 1000 Buddha statues and talking to the monks. Next we were on our way to the famous whirlpool of Niagara Falls on our exceptional bikes. They were strong, well-kept and comfortable. Sean kept up a reasonable pace and was an excellent photographer during the entire adventure. He will go the extra mile in his quest to give a perfect experience. Thank you very much Sean!

The five star ranking is an understatement for Sean’s bike tour. It far exceeds it! He is an amazing tour guide; a wealth of knowledge! Super friendly, easy-going and has a special knack for photography. The bike ride was well-paced, packed with awe-inspiring sights and plenty of time to spare for many, many photos. Sean definitely went out of his way to accompany my sister and I; and we are truly grateful and appreciative towards him. 10/10.

Sean was such a great and entertaining guide through the lesser traveled beauties of Niagara. He’s full of fun facts and will keep you thoroughly engaged - from the Buddhist temple to the whirlpool, flower clock, and battleground, you’ll take away more than just gorgeous pictures. Just don’t be surprised if you end up loving the area more than you thought you would.

Highly recommend this tour with Sean! He provides a wonderful experience exactly as described. The Monastery visit is unique - Sean's family has long been involved with the Monastery and he knows all the nooks and crannies - He'll get you behind the scenes! It's really interesting and adds a unique twist to the trip. The bike ride was great. Sean grew up in the area and not only knows all the good spots, but the stories to go with them. He got us some great views of the sites off the beaten tourist path - at a couple of stops, we were the only people there. Sean is full of great info, stories, and in general, is a delight to talk to and spend time with. He loves the area, loves people, and is one of the nicest and most genuine people you'll meet. All around the perfect combo for a great tour guide!

We've given Sean a 5-star rating for his Buddha's and Beauty tour of Niagara Falls only because we can't give him more than 5 stars. He was easy-going, accommodating, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in making the experience enjoyable and informative for us. We booked Sean's tour after spending a day enjoying the wonderful but standard (wait-in-line--elevator-down--have-photo-taken--wait-in-line--see-the-falls...) Niagara Falls attractions. Sean took us away from the crowds and refrigerator magnets, and gave us a chance to enjoy the natural settings and views along the river. He planned the stops along the path just perfectly to allow us to easily manage the modest physical demands of the ride while pausing for a stories about the river, the history of the area, or even the impressive engineering marvels of the conversion of the river to a sustainable energy source. And speaking of energy sources - the Granola Bars - we simply can't say enough about the Granola Bars, a topic that came up over and over on our ride! And while we're not authorities on Buddhism, we have a curiosity and interest in Buddhist principles. Sean gave us a relaxed, informative tour of the Buddhist Temple at the outset of the ride and answered all the questions we had. He responded to our level of interest and was very accommodating.
