Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide at your hotel in Niagara Falls, New York prior to an 8:30 a.m. or 3 p.m. departure (choose upon booking). Upon arriving at the waterfall, one of the largest in the United States, take an elevator 175 feet (53 meters) down into Niagara Gorge. Prepare to get wet by donning an included poncho and specialty shoes, and then make your way to a series of wooden walkways that will bring you as close as possible to the falls at Cave of the Winds.

Then, hop aboard the Maid of the Mist boat to watch the Majestic Falls from the water, before heading to the American Observation Tower for views of Whirlpool Falls, Three Sister Islands, and Luna Island. Travel to Goat Island to see Horseshoe Falls, American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls up close and from various angles; bring your camera (if it’s waterproof).

Complete your trip with drop-off at your hotel or accommodation in Niagara Falls, NY.

My wife and I had a great time experience going to Niagara Falls. I have been as a child but never experienced anything like this. The best part of the tour was the hurricane deck, you could feel the force of the American side Falls. I do recommend this tour to all. Note: prepare to get very soaked when you do this. Water isn’t cold!!!

The tour was very good. Mohammed was knowledgeable and informative. It was well organized and we were able to go on the maid of the mist and to the cave of the winds on the day we planned because he secured our tickets early. This was well worth the money during a busy holiday weekend.
