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
Amazing day worth every penny. Our guide Eduordo was very knowledgeable everything ran perfectly from hotel pick up to drop off.
This tour was amazing! Definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in seeing the falls. It surpassed my expectations. Well worth the money and the early pick up time!
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
What a fantastic trip. Niagara falls was awesome. Highly recommended.
Absolutely fantastic!!!! Cannot fault this trip and highly recommend as a must. The travel arrangements were seemles, door to to transport. Our tour guide Eduardo was brilliant. Knowledgeable and approachable, gave a good amount of time around the various sites, took us to every possible viewing point to see the falls from all angles. Lunch was lovely, great view. It's worth the very early start, would definitely do it again.
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!
I have tried to send this before. Niagara was wonderful. The Tour Guide was great. Well worth the money and a lifetime dream of miner
Excellent trip with great organisation from start to finish. Very knowledgeable guide too for the tour
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.
A trip not to be missed. A long day but a worthwhile one. The excursion was well planned and informative. The boat trip was awesome. Would have liked a bit more time on the American side but appreciate that we needed to get back to the airport.
Highly recommended if you want to experience as much as possible at Niagara in a day!
Pick up and drop off from our hotel was included. Flights from JFK to Buffalo were with Jet Blue and took approx 1.5 hours. Eduardo, our guide picked us up from the airport and was very knowledgeable. We felt well looked after throughout the trip.The trip covers both the Canadian and American no visa needed for the canadian side sides of the falls and includes a ride on the boat. Prepare to get soaked! Lunch was at the Sheraton hotel all you can eat buffet with a great view of the falls. American dollars are accepted while in Canada and there are plenty of opportunities to buy souvenirs.
We were the only ones on the tour and it was AMAZING. Our driver was very knowledgeable and friendly, and winter is a great time to see the falls because no mist and no crowds!
Remember, if you're from a country that doesn't customarily tip: you WILL need to tip the driver.
Fantastic trip! From hotel pick up to drop off, it couldn't gone any smoother. Airport transfer perfect. The Falls were breath taking. So glad we went to the Canadian side of the falls. Loved the boat ride. Highly recommend this tour.
Excellent, pick up on time, although flight delayed mechanical, we did not miss a thing and not rushed at all. Guiseppe fantastic tour guide and very well oranised, lovely lunch at the Sheraton, boat trip, a very good day indeed. And picked up from airport hassle free
Great tour! Everything was very well planned out! You fly to buffalo then are met by your guide Eduardo who is extremely knowledgable. Very long day but totally worth it.
Having read the last few reviews, there really isn't anything else to add. But I feel obliged to, just to compound what a great experience this trip was. Viator, really does deserve a pat on the back. For as jaw dropping as The Falls are, a day trip like this is really made or broken with the organisation. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel at 5.20am, to when we were dropped back at 22.00, the day ran like clockwork. This included transfers to and from airports, our boarding passes were retrieved for us. Going through Canadian customs, and USA customs on our return. Transfer to The Falls, lunch at The Sheraton, overlooking The Falls. A boat ride into The Falls. All of this , plus we had the company of our tour guide Guisseppe. What or who that man does't know, isn't worth knowing. Friendly, knowledgable, helpful. The list is endless. I can't speak highly enough of my experience on this trip.
This was a great day, it was a very long day though. We were picked up at 5.30am and returned to our hotel at about 11pm. The transfer staff were friendly and helpful and when we arrived in Buffalo our tour guide Guisseppe was very friendly and very knowledgable and made for a really enjoyable day. We spent most of our time on the Canadian side of the falls which I was really happy with because the view is much much better. This tour is well worth doing, I would do it again.
Absolutely Fantastic!! We flew from Kennedy Airport to Buffalo with JetBlue. We had roomy seats with personal monitors and complimentary snacks and drinks even thought the flight was only an hour long. Our friendly and informative tour guide Giuseppe was waiting for us at the airport. He has obviously been doing this job for a while as everyone knew him and he was extremely well liked this helped a lot when skipping the lines. We had no trouble crossing the border into Canada, In fact the officials there were so friendly they were telling us jokes. Giuseppe showed us the power stations and took us to a lovely and quaint gift shop where they gave us samples of maple syrup cookies. We had lunch at the Sheraton where the views are tremendous. We then went on the Hornblower which was absolutely amazing and it was worth the long day just for that. Afterwards Giuseppe took us to the top of the horseshoe falls where the view is stunning! We loved all of our trip to NY but this was definitely the highlight!
What an amazing experience!! The booking and confirmation was very easy and went without a hitch. All the staff from start to finish was very welcoming and friendly who answered every question with interest. The whole trip was organised amazingly meaning we had a stress free day. We travelled on a mini bus with Spanish people too but the tour guide ensured that everyone was given the same information which was very informative. He couldn't have tried harder to ensure that everyone was happy. We stopped off several times throughout the day at different parts of the falls as well as having lunch on the Canadian side with amazing views of the falls. As we travelled in February the boat was not running so we went behind the falls which was included in the trip. Overall an amazing experience and well worth every penny!! Just be prepared for the freezing temperature if you are travelling in winter.... it was -15 degrees Celsius with a feel temperature of -22!!
Be prepared for a long and tiring day. In the winter, you will need very warm clothing as the weather can be biting cold. You will be collected from a designated hotel at approximately 05:00. Stops will be made at further hotels to collect others. When you arrive at the Airport, your driver will hand you your boarding pass with information on gate numbers etc.
Once through security and airside, you can shop, have breakfast and rest until your flight is called.
The hour long flight is comfortable with free in flight snack.
Once you have disembarked, you will be met by your guide for the day.
Ours was Giuseppe. A very pleasant, affable and entertaining fellow. He was very knowledgeable in his field. He provided a running commentary and answered all questions with enthusiasm.
All our stops were long enough to visit the attractions with sufficient time for small explorations and photographs.
Lunch was an all you can eat buffet at The Sheraton Hotel on the Canadian side. It was mainly salads for vegetarians but tasty none the less.
There is a further fee involved which is a voluntary 15 gratuity for the guide.
That is 15 of the cost of the tour! I was rather annoyed at being informed of this at the beginning of the tour but by the end of it, I was happy to hand over the cash to Giuseppe.
It is a very long day, especially is you have to get up very early to hop across NYC to the designated pick up hotel for 05:00. Our flight was delayed which meant we did not get back until approximately 22:00.
All in all a great day out and a tour that is an experience you would be silly to miss.
great tour very good guide out of season so no waiting in line good quality lunch included will use again.
