Itinerary

Day 1: New York City – Niagara Falls, NY – Niagara Falls, Canada

Climb on board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach for an early morning departure from the Big Apple, through Upstate New York to Watkins Glen, a small, quiet town in the scenic Finger Lakes region. Make a stop at Watkins Glen National Park, then continue on to iconic Niagara Falls for a late afternoon arrival. Explore the American side of the falls, which will be colorfully illuminated for the evening, before an overnight stay at Super 8 Niagara Falls Ontario (or a similar accommodation) on the Canadian side of the falls.

The overnight stay is scheduled on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Customers without necessary documentation will receive an overnight accommodation on the American side of Niagara Falls. Please state 'US visa only' in the 'Special Requirements' box at time of booking. 

Day 2: Niagara Falls, Canada – New York City (breakfast included)

After breakfast at the hotel, it’s time for a Maid of the Mist boat cruise. This is the ultimate Niagara Falls activity and no trip to the falls is complete without it. Grab an included poncho and get up close and personal with the falls. Feel the cool spray and the powerful sounds of the water. This is the experience of a lifetime for those taking the tour between mid-May and October. 

Outside of those dates, take an equally exciting “Journey Behind the Falls” to explore the scenic tunnels below and behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Make no mistake — this is as close to the falls as anyone wants to be. The sound is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand back, or in this case stand just close enough to feel the power. It’s exhilarating.

After Niagara Falls, continue on the road back to New York City, making a stop to shop at the Crossings Premium Outlets, one of the largest outlet malls in the US with 100 name-brand stores. 

Finally, arrive back at Gray Line New York in the evening.

We would recommend this tour to anyone that would like to experience both the American and Canadian sides of the falls, we travelled in a comfortable couch and our tour guides Eddy and bus driver Herbert were extremely knowledgable and the made the trip enjoyable. The hotel we stayed in overnight which was the Super 8 in Niagara Falls was extremely clean and very comfortable, it is within walking distance to the falls and entertainment area.

This trip was a pleasant surprise, me and my mom was able to get up early enough to use the subway we got off at the 50th St. stop A train we arrived at the pick up point 6:30am at the Tour Headquarters at 777 8th Ave in Manhatten, NY. The tour guides was very informative about the trip and they were just as much helpful, my mom was having some trouble with her knee and she needed help walking when we were on the American side of the falls, also she misplaced her gloves at the visitors center when we were on the Canadian side of the falls, but our tour guide picked her gloves up and gave them to me so I could take credit for finding them for her, needless to say the tour guides were awesome! We'd consider taking the extended tour with Viator. We've already booked a Washington excursion this coming May and no doubt it will be as great as the Niagara Falls trip.

A busy two day tour that gave us every opportunity to see everything we needed to see in and around Niagara. Richard,, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave lots of commentary that made the long bus drive interesting. The hotel for the overnight stay was comfortable and clean and within walking distance from the main business centre. Well run, on time as scheduled, I would certainly recommend to friends.

This tour was awesome!! Well organised and the tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The bus driver was great too! It was a nice drive to see the area outside of Manhattan. If you can, go when Maid of the Mist operates. We were lucky enough to go before the season ended and you'll have the best view of the falls from there.
