Ambassatours acquired Double Deck Tours, Niagara Falls' longest operating tour company on November 1, 2018. Double Deck Tours was founded in Niagara Falls by the Watson family in 1965. The company operates deluxe tours of Niagara Falls aboard their iconic London buses. The company’s livery of 12 double deckers are pristinely maintained, authentic in original British colour tones and interior. The company thrived under its founder, Norman Watson; and continued for second and third generations with Bert Watson, assisted by his son, Dustin Watson. At one time, the company operated up to 20 Routemasters from its base in Niagara Falls. Repairs and maintenance are conducted at the company’s nearby service facility. Double Deck Tours employed approximately 16 seasonal staff at time of sale. When Ambassatours purchased of the company, owner, Bert Watson retired, and Bert's son, Dustin Watson joined the new company as Service Manager for Niagara Falls operations. Ambassatours retains the iconic Double Deck Tour brand as it re-launched the business in time for the 2019 tourism season in Niagara Falls.
