What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls Day Trip from New York by Air

Niagara Falls Day Trip from New York by Air

Your day trip to Niagara Falls starts with the transfer from Manhattan to the airport, where you’ll hop aboard the plane for your approximate 1-hour flight from New York City to upstate New York. When you arrive, make the bus journey to the falls with your tour guide, who leads you on an exploration of Niagara sights on both the American side and Canadian side.

Fuel up with a buffet lunch at a restaurant overlooking the falls, and then embark on one of two experiences, depending on the time of year of your tour. In the warmer months (usually May to October), take a 30-minute boat ride on the waters of the Niagara River for an up-close look at American Falls and Horseshoe Falls, cruising close enough to the base of the powerful cascades to feel the spray of water on your skin.

During the cooler months (generally November to April), get a deeper look at the waterfall on Journey Behind the Falls, an attraction that allows you to walk behind the sheets of water for a different perspective. When your time at Niagara is up, return to New York City by air to end your day trip.

So amazing. It's a really early start (4am pick up for your hotel) and you get back to Manhattan about 6.30 / 7pm but it's such a good day. Eduardo the tour guide is with you all day and he really knows his stuff. Definitely expensive but such a wonderful trip

The whole day was exceptional. From the comfortable flight to the time spent at both sides of the falls, everything was great. The buffet lunch was lovely and sitting eating and looking at the falls was brilliant. The sheer power of the water is amazing. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable

This tour is approximately 13hrs long with a really early morning pickup. Our hotel pick up was at 4am and the whole trip was so well planned. Definitely worth waking up at the crack of dawn to witness the Magnificent Niagara Falls from both USA and Canada. Two thumbs up!

Long but fantastic day. The travel arrangements were fine and the guide, Guiseppe was great. The falls themselves were spectacular and lunch at the Sheraton was excellent. Would have liked a little longer at each of the viewing areas rather than the stop at the gift shop/shopping mall but otherwise a great day.
