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.
fantastic day, excellant guide. lovely food, and an alround great day. would recomend it to anyone.
Awesome! It couldn't have been better. All the people we dealt with were top-notch, very professional. We especially liked our tour guide, Giuseppi. He worked very hard at making sure we all had a good time. He was very conscientious and enthusiastic. He was an expert on the subject of Niagara Falls. He and the other staff were an excellent representation of the company.
The pick up and flight to Niagara executed well. Our guide was great , informative. Lunch at the Sheraton was good. Only delay was the flight back, out of your control. On the whole a great day.
This was a great tour sooo glad we did this. Big day with 4.30am start and 10pm finish because plane cancelled and we had to wait for next plane. Bit confusing when we got back to New York because we all were confused about where the driver would meet us. Maybe a card should be given to everyone with instructions especially if plane is late. All in all I wouldn't have missed seeing one of the wonders of the world. Loved the maid in the mist boat ride. Eduardo easy our guide he was lovely.
The trip was fantastic and so well organised. ..I highly recommend this trip as there was so much to see ...not to be missed !!!
An excellent day trip to Niagara Falls - seamless organisation from start to end. Congratulations to Viator
Loved it! Views were spectacular. Tour guide Giuseppe was very knowledgeable.
We were picked up on time and taken to JFK where we were given our boarding passes having already been checked in. Flight time was short and very comfortable airline. Met at Buffalo by our guide who took us to the bus and drove us to Canada. The views were lovely. Guide was clear and helpful and managed to say everything in all three languages our group required. Lunch was amazing far surpassing our expectations in a restaurant with amazing views over the falls. The only down sides to this tour essentially were that is was a tour; we had the obligatory shop stop where the company were clearly on commission and we couldn't leave if everyone wasn't there on time. Our group contained some who once back at JFK took over 45 mins to get to the pick up point (approx 10 mins walk) and so everyone had to wait after a long day. I did think that as two taxi's were present the full one should leave but they were in a drop off zone so if left unattended would be towed. Something relatively simple as parking in a proper parking zone a paying a few dollars for a short parking stay would have reduced all the irritation of those in the taxi that had nothing to do with the dawdlers. It is a long day and patience isn't at a premium by the time everyone gets back to JFK. All in all we would not have seen the different views had we done this ourselves or had the interesting information our guide supplied.
Very long day but worth every moment! Niagara Falls is absolutely amazing! Our guide was very informative and a lovely lady.
Only being in New York for a week, and definitely wanting to see the Niagara Falls as part of my bucket list, this was the easiest way to do it. I read some feedback that said you could book every aspect yourself, or fly then rent a car, but we just wanted someone to make the process go smoothly and take the problems away. I am so glad we made the effort to get to the Falls. Yes, it is a long day, but there's no surprise there and it's definitely worth it. From the pick-up at our hotel, to smooth transfer through the airport, to the coach ride from Buffalo and over to the Canadian side of the Niagara Falls, it was great. Everything went well and we had an awesome day.
Brilliant. Tour guide was excellent and trip was worth every penny
Best tour we had in our holiday in new york. The tour leader was brilliant and took us to the nicest spots of niagara falls.
Wow! The day was amazing, seeing the falls half frozen was very interesting. Italian Joe, our tour guide was very informative - what a lovely guy. It was quiet on the day we were there and the only three on our trip, we had VIP treatment. Lunch at the Sheraton was incredible, the food was first class and our seat over looking the falls made it extra special. A long day but worth it, I would do it again, perhaps in the summer time. You must try the buffalo wings at Buffalo airport with a beer at the end of the day - really good.
Although it was freezing cold, we thoroughly enjoyed the time there.
Our Tour guide was Eduardo and he was extremely informative and polite. We had just arrived to the falls only a few days after it had frozen over. It was truly amazing nothing can describe the beauty of the natural wonder (I am not a real nature lover but WOW)
I've wanted to go to Niagara since I was very young and it was well worth the wait even if the snow made it a different experience than I'd expected - chilly yet very beautiful.
Tour guide was great - knew the area well and adjusted as necessary for both the passengers and the weather conditions.
When the flight was cancelled due to the weather the company made all the arrangements to get us back to NYC by coach - granted 12 hours overnight on a coach was not conducive to sleep, but the fact that they made the effort in conditions when most people were staying off the roads deserves reps.
Definitely recommended this tour and would love to do it again next time I'm in the area - but maybe in the spring this time :)
Great tour!! Our tour guide took great care of us from beginning to end. He was entertaining/ accommodating and provided lots of interesting facts on not only the falls but the surrounding areas. Could have done without trip to power plant- interesting non the less. A must do tour!
The most amazing place on earth. This is a fantastic tour. Highly highly recommended. The day was a little long but nothing to worry about. Would definately do this tour again!!
