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!
