This is as close as anyone can get to Niagara Falls—without riding over them in a barrel, of course. This seasonal (May-October) tour travels to the edge of the falls, and safely back.

The journey begins at Niagara Falls State Park, the oldest state park in the United States, and all the key viewing areas of the Niagara region—from the relatively unknown to some of the most famous tourist spots in the world.

Take an elevator ride down into the Niagara Gorge, where wooden walkways along the Niagara River lead to the observation deck of the Cave of the Winds, just a few feet from the powerful rush of the falls. It’s like being caught in a tropical storm here. This is what it means to be close to Niagara Falls. Really close.

Take another elevator ride up to the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls—the American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls—from the Niagara Falls Observation Tower. Stand over Niagara Gorge with an unobstructed view as the waters rage below.

Visit Goat Island, that small island in the Niagara River separating the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls.

Hop on board the popular Maid of the Mist for a boat ride to the very edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, the most powerful waterfall in North America.

Get to know Niagara Falls—from state parks to islands; from power plants to the iconic falls themselves, this tour of Niagara Falls, USA, covers it all.

Unhappy about safety measures. Was told the bus was going to have social distancing and assigned seats neither happened.
Beautiful

People did wear masks but even guide who was otherwise great didn’t wear his mask properly. Would not recommend anyone go to Niagara Falls and take a tour till pandemic is over. Not safe long lines

Thank you for providing us with your feedback with regard to your experience while on our tour. As always, but even more so this year, safety of our guests is our number one priority. It is unfortunate to hear that it seems some of the safety precautions and standards we have in place were not to your satisfaction. Although we do have control over our capacities on our vehicles as well as mandate masks be worn at all times along with providing additional cleaning methods before, during and after each tour. We do not have control of the outside factors at the included attractions and when inside the parks. Our guides have been trained to be conscious of trying to distance their groups from others while outside of the vehicle. We take your concerns very seriously and invite you to contact us at 877-285-2113 so that we can discuss your experience in greater detail. We appreciate your review and look forward to hearing from you, so we may additionally tend to your concerns.

John was good. The 4-5hr tour turned out to be more like 6hrs including pickup and drop off. We stopped at the high points of Niagara and had the opportunity to take tons of photos. Now that I know the lay of the land, I’ll probably venture out on my own if there was a next time.

Ross was a great tour guide. Me and my husband really enjoyed every part of this tour. He would give us plenty of time to take breaks, take pictures and give us interesting stories to keep us entertained. Very friendly and everything went smoothly. Definitely recommend this tour. Maid of the mist was breath taking.

Grey line tour on the American side was excellent as was Tom the tour guide. If you take this tour it is best to lodge yourselves on the American side since it can be a hassel going back and forth through customs. Tom is funny, engaging and knowledgeable about the falls, the development of hydro electric and all other related matters. My husband and I went with our adult daughter and enjoyed getting wet at the falls and on the Maid of the Mist. I highly recomment this tour.
