It was a full day tour that was very well organised. The whole day ran smoothly from pick up to drop off.
Upon our arrival in Buffalo after flying from NYC, we were greeted by our friendly guide and driver. From that moment it was a non stop day of seeing all the sights. Niagara Falls was spectacular and the Maid of the Mist boat trip was a great experience albeit a wet one!! There is a lot to see in the area and our guide made sure we got the most out of the experience. I would highly recommend this trip and felt that it was good value for money but be prepared for a long day. Our pick up was 6.30am and our drop off was around 11pm.
You get up very close to the falls from the top on both falls.
The Maid of the Mist is great and surprising, especially the wind that's generated and you get wet!
The Canadian side was great, especially the lunch from the top of the Sheraton Hotel - great view!
Was great day but a long one. Totally worth the effort and we were blessed with a sunny day.
FANTASTIC !! The organisation was superb, everything going like clock-work. Pick up at hotel right on time, Transfer to airport, boarding passes, arrival at Buffalo, and transfer to our bus for drive to Niagara, Maid of the Mist, cross to Canadian side, lunch at (was it the Sheraton?) excellent. Back to American side for final photo op then back to airport for flight to New York and transfer to our hotel. The whole experience, and organisation, perfect in every way. Thank you Viator !!!
It was an early start for us as we were picked up from our hotel at 4.15am and arrived at JFK airport an hour later and take off was at 6.30am with Jet Blue and the flight was only 50 minutes to Buffalo/Niagara Falls airport. We were met there by our tour guide Guissepe (an italian, but his knowledge of the falls was excellent) and then taken to American Falls for boat trip on "Maid of the Mist". After this we were taken across the border to see the Canadian side of the falls and the Rainbow Bridge gift shop. The buffet lunch in Sheraton Hotel was very good and then we were back across the border into USA to look down on the falls from American side. Flight back to New York was at 4.35pm and arrived back at our hotel at about 7.30pm. It was a very good day trip to visit the second "must see" attraction in the world, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Wonderfully knowledgeable guides, plenty of time spent at each location. Food excellent
Excellent every thing went like clock work. I highly recommend the company and their staff
Excellent and well organised trip. Staff were so friendly and help especially when we got to buffalo...... Big thanks to Francesco and his son (think I got their names right) they were both excellent.
Please be prepared to get up earlier....our pick you was 4.10am...and little bit earlier than stated when booking.
Fantastic experience, trip perfectly organized and guided, very helpful and friendly staff
This tour was great!! Eduardo our guide was wonderful and took us to some great places. The Falls were amazing and our lunch overlooking the falls was very nice. Our return flight was delayed and it ended up being a very very long day, but so worth it.
What can I say it was a fantastic day. The tour guide in Buffalo was fantastic. Giovanni or Jo and he was so good with all passengers. Loved it want to go back and do it all again!
The guide was excellent , with very good knowledge of the area , the only fault we had was trying to get confer Matin of pick up time from hotel, that should be emailed to us.
Fantastic ! Just ensure your guide provides booking numbers (partners etc) in plane seating together !
A very early start - 4.45 am but the driver arrived spot on time and took us to JFK. for the 7.30 schedule flight to Buffalo. On arrival the minibus was waiting to take us to the falls, lots of photographs, lots of water and a GREAT buffet lunch at the Sheraton hotel with fantastic views over the falls. Back to Buffalo airport after a long delay at the border, (why do the border guards all take a tea break at the same time?) Got back to the hotel at 10.30 pm, so quite a long day but worth it. The whole trip was very well organised and I can thoroughly recommend it!
I think we saw Niagara Falls from every possible angle. We had a fantastic day which ran smoothly until our return plane was delayed by about 2 hours but this did not even phase us as our tour had been so wonderful. Highly recommend this tour. A long, long day but you can sleep on the plane home. DO IT!!
Was fantastic, couldn't fault anything at all! The day went better than expected
The trip was fantastic and the tour guide is very experienced! The tour may be for Niagara falls but it is too much of falls for a day, it would be better to have something small included in the trip.
I did this tour together with my 18 year old niece and 10 year old nephew. The only negative I can find is that it was a REALLY long day. Our pick up was 4.30am and return 9pm.
That said it was fabulous, we were time limited so the tour was perfect for us. Niagara Falls is just magnificent and we are all so pleased that we were able to get to see everything we did. Everything was arranged and the whole tour went like clockwork.
