New York City, New York
We had a terrific day in the Niagara Falls. The day was excellently organized and executed.
We were picked up at early morning hour by a very luxurious minibus, drove an hour to a private airfield near NYC, where we boarded a small airplane. The flight was great, and the pilot had a special surprise for us, making a flyby over the Falls in a low altitude ! (something you can do only with small aircraft of course).
We then had another ride (right from the steps of the aircraft) to the falls themselves. You get your vouchers and then it's all up to you how to spend the next 5 hours.
We took the US side (you can opt for the Canadian side), immensely enjoyed "Maid of the Mist" (a must), "Cave of the Winds" (very recommended), "Terrapin Point" (a must), the Observation Tower (a must). The falls are phenomenal and the US side feels truly like a natural park.
Back on the bus, our driver took us to the "Whirlpool", a terrific place with world's largest natural whirlpool, and then to the "3 Sisters" islands. From there, back to the plane, and we were back in Manhattan by 6.30 PM.
All in all, I can't recommend this enough. If you haven’t been to the falls, and are on a tight schedule – this day trip is the ultimate trip. You'll feel like a celebrity, have your own free time, all arrangements are done for you in the highest level – no headaches – just enjoy !
Hats down to the guys at Viator, this was absolutely great, Thanks !!
