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.

Seeing a natural wonder in person Is a million times better than seeing it on TV. Our guide, Mickie, did a great job in answering our questions and driving us around to see the sights. We were looking for a way to take it all in without the stress of parking and navigating, and we were very satisfied with the whole tour.

Loved it!

Our guide, Dalton, was so awesome and knowledgeable. We loved the intimacy of our small group. The only thing I would recommend is to make it clear to bring your own water and snacks because it is a long day. There were a few stops to purchase snacks. Naturally I left my wallet on the tour bus. Even better if bottled water was provided, it would have elevated the experience. But overall, this tour made for a memorable day.

Maid of the Mist does not disappoint!

They were very accommodating considering our Covid tests did not result within time to cross the border and allowed us to change our excursion last minute. The stops were amazing including the cave of the winds and the maid of the mist with being able to see both American and Canadian side falls! Jimmy (is the best) was a great guide! Very nice, helpful, and super knowledgeable about the surrounding area and the falls! Highly recommend.

Great Way to See the Best of Niagara Falls

This was such a nice tour. We got picked up at the hotel and there were only 6 of us. We bonded very quickly and really had a nice time. Jim was very informative and told lots of stories about the area. He also gave great recommendations for places to eat. It was crowded, but Jim got us to the different sights with his van and had our tickets ready, so we spent very little time in lines, and we could spent as much tine as we needed at the different sights.
