This tour was great. Got to see some amazing sites! Very well organised. Our guide was fantastic. Very good value for money!
This tour exceeded my expectations! The bus journey was quite long, but it was made up for by stopping at the lakes and a beautiful gorge on the way (I slept the rest of the journey!). Once arrived, we had plenty of time to look at the falls, take photos and visit the souvenir shop. Then we were taken to the hotel, which was FAR better than I was expecting - we had a king sized bed with a jacuzzi bath in the room, it was amazing! We were then taken back to the falls to see them illuminated at night, which was really good. We had free time after this to do as we wanted, so we went out for a meal and walked through the 'strip', whilst others had the option to go out drinking or visit the casino etc.. The following morning was an early wake up call but we had a fantastic time on the Maid of the Mist! Again, the drive back was quite long, but broken up by a shopping trip. The outlet was huge and we didn't nearly have enough time to go to all the shops I wanted to! Perhaps more time spent here would have been ideal, but I understand that the shopping wasn't for everyone (particularly the men!). But I managed to buy a few designer handbags with 70 percent off :) I thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and would recommend it to anyone. The tour guide was fantastic, had a very dry sense of humour but really made the trip worthwhile. Timings were kept to, and the people on the trip were a lovely mix of cultures, ages and nationalities.
Great Tour, well worth it.
Definitely stay on the Canadian side as it is beautiful.
Tour guide on the bus was great, very informative.
Plenty of stops along the way to stretch your legs.
Love it! Enjoyed the stops, niagara falls and the shopping on the way back
its a long trip to NIagara falls by bus but the whole affair were very relaxing. The hotel we stayed is nice and comfortable. They are several stops for toilet breaks, lunch and dinner. Great buffet place!
we made a stop at one of the parks before Niagara. Its beautiful and the landscape is amazing. Thanks for including that in the itinerary.
Just have to mention to anyone taking this tour that timing is important and crucial because of immigration queue at USA and Canada. We have to ensure that our group don't get delayed due to the long bus queue by other operators too.
We booked this tour hoping we would get to see the Autumn trees and we were not disappointed.
The tour was well organised and the tour guide Ben was a wealth of knowledge and also spoke 3 different languages fluently.
Niagara Falls are amazing and is a must see, we stayed on the Canadian side for the night, which was awesome, and included in the price with breakfast. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were very large with very comfortable beds.
We loved our tour and would highly recommend anyone to take this tour.
Although the bus ride was long, we had many stops in between for breaks and stretching. Guide was good and patience. Wonderful for those who want to see the Niagara Falls as everything was planned for. Will definitely recommend to friends!
This trip was excellent, our tour guide Ben was so informative and was able to speak 3 languages, very seamlessly. Our bus driver Jessie was great as well.
We had a great time at Niagara Falls, there were plenty of stops along the way to stretch your legs and go to the bathroom.
The stop at Watkins Glenn and walk down the falls was spectacular. We were lucky that all the trees were changing colour - spectacular.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to go to Niagara Falls without the hassle of driving down, everything is done for you. - Love, Love, Loved it....
Absolutely awesome. Even though it was an 8hr bus trip it was planned with designated stops every couple of hours so it didn't seem that long. The walk through the State Park was good to stretch the legs. Buses were comfortable and hotel clean and comfortable. Would not hesitate o recommend this tour, great value for money.
I had a great time, I went by myself and meet two sister from Holland, they were cool.
This tour was really good and fab tour guide Ben very through. Could of done with little more time at malls to shop but would Deffo do again thanks
What an amazing weekend! Though it was a lot of time on the bus, the tour guide really helps to break it up by mutiple rest stops and side excersions. On the way up we stop for breakfast and lunch as well as a surprise visit to Watkins Glen. Only 20 minutes but well worth it! Once we got into Canada, we saw the falls, just as the sun was setting! So many rainboys! Then, once we got to the hotel (which is probably the nicest Super 8 I've ever been to), we took a bus ride into the main part of town and got to see the falls at night. Another treat! It was an early wake-up call, 6am, to eat breakfast and make it through customs on time but, again, well worth it. We walked along the falls on the American side and wound up on the famous Maid of The Mist boat! I recommend you wear rain boots but they give you a poncho! Make arrangements for waterproofing your camera/phone. Then, on the way back, we stopped for 2 hours at the Waterloo Outlets. I got some GREAT deals though the food selection for lunch wasn't the greatest. Then it was 5 hours home with a stop in between. That is when I started toget antsy but overall, the trip was totally worth it and I would recommend it to anyone! :-)
This tour was amazing! Ben was the best tour guide! And I commend him on his patience with one very overbearing tourist that got on everyone's nerve! Would suggest the overnight tour to any one wanting the Niagara Falls experience...
Congratulation for this wonderful package, everything was amazing, it's was a great great trip, the landscape, the places, the boat, the guide and the hotel were fantastique. i think I'll do this again.
Excellent trip and well organised. It's a long ride but don't let it put you off booking. It was worth every penny. I would of prefered longer at the shopping outlet on the way back. I would definately recommend this trip.

Early start on Day 1. Coach was very comfortable and much better than expected. Our Guide was excellent and always kept us motivated and informed. The majority of our party stayed on the Canadian side except just Five Adults. Our Hotel was first class. Outside there was a Street Party and just a short walk to view the Waterfalls. We joined the Festivities with Live Music and Dancing till late at night. Day 2. Maid of the Mist was the Icing on the Cake. WOW. The journey back to NYC was so relaxing. Thank you Viator 5 Stars from me.
Long Trip, but really worth it. Plenty of time to see the falls or enjoy some free time in Niagara Falls Canada.
Watkins Gelnn on the way over was a nice surprise, but the Outles shoping center on the way back isn't for everyone.
A good way to see the Falls from New York. Great to be able to stay on the Canadian side and see the Labour Day fireworks over the falls. The guide was excellent - enthusiastic and organised us well without being overbearing. Perhaps just a little more advance info from the guide earlier in the day as to what the schedule was for each day.
Walking the gorge at Watkins Glen and the outlet shopping were great additiong - the gorge is spectacular.
