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.

Our terrific guide, Ricky Ray conducted a wonderful tour with both interesting factoids and humorous asides that kept us entertained. It never felt like he was rushing the group, with plenty of time to enjoy the awesome scenery of the falls. And it was great not to have wait on long lines for the more popular activities. We were so happy to cover all the activities we most wanted and that certainly lived up to expectations (Cave of the Winds, Maid of the Mist especially). We totally recommend this tour.

It’s very hard to put into words all the feelings and thoughts from this experience. It has no comparison. Just brilliant. Try not to go on a Saturday though. That’s their busiest day. Our tour guide was the icing on the cake. John paid attention to detail and was very helpful

FANTASTICAL TOUR GUIDE
Michelle_H
, Jul. 2022
I tried to share photos, it kept giving an error message. The tour was fantastic and the sites were amazing. It included the main attractions and introduced you to other places you could visit. What made the tour fantastic and not just your average tour was our FANTASICAL tour guide BRIAN. He was absolutely the best. He was friendly, laid back, extremely knowledgeable, caring, diligent and FUN! He also seemed to be magically inclined to get us to the attractions and not have to wait in lines :). He even took us around the building at the end of the day to drop us off closer to our hotel and had chargers on the bus ( iphone, but if you need micro usb or c bring one. I'm certain he will plug it in for you! ) There were may convenient pick up and drop off points as well, btw. The customer service of the company was also awesome and easy to reach. This was a nice half-day tour especially if you are on a time line and want to see a lot quickly. You could leave belongings on the bus as he locked it and could bring a lunch and snacks. There was a stop where you could eat what you brought or buy food at a food truck.

This was a great way to hit all the Niagara Falls highlights without all the stress of finding parking, buying tickets and finding entrances! Great to have a knowledgeable guide to provide local history and anecdotes, also! 4 stars only because we wish we had more time at one of the sites, which wasn’t possible on a tour.

I would give it one star but they came back to get us when they left us at one of the sites. The guide was knowledgeable but was older and couldn’t keep up with the 50 person group. Unorganized, couldn’t hear the guide and not worth the value.

All of it was cool, but you got to experience maiden of the mist and Cave of the winds. A lot of information given by tour guide, that’s why we really wanted the tour. It’s definitely a plus that I didn’t have to do all that driving in the busy weekend traffic!

Our tour guide Brandon was knowledgeable and funny. And this tour allowed us an opportunity to just sit back and not have to worry about planning where the most memorable spots of Niagara Falls were This tour made everything very easy. Company was great, picked us up at the hotel, on time, couldn’t ask for more.

Ross was our Captain for the day and we were his Fish. He is timely, on his game, knowledgable and quippy. Runs a fun tight ship/bus - and has stories the ENTIRE TIME. Each stop. Every sight. And the entire drive - he was on his game and attentive.
