I loved this trip! It was a long day especially getting picked up from the hotel at 5:10am and not getting back until around 10pm that night but well worth it. Make sure you can access the Canadian side of the falls, those are spectacular! Giuseppe the tour guide was awesome, very knowledgeable and made sure our group saw everything, well done! I highly recommend this tour!
Excellent, dont miss this day trip. Was picked up promptly and taken to the airport. Collected by our knowledgeable tour guide and off to the falls. Started with a spectacular cruise on the Maid of the Mist, followed by some great photo shoot lookouts. Then off to Canada for a buffet lunch overlooking the falls. A nice walk along the top to view the Canadian side of the falls.Some delay in crossing the bridge back into USA by customs but all part of the experience. A full day and worth every minute
Absolutely amazing. We made it on the last day of the maid of the mist! I do recommend rain boots to wear during this because you will get wet and then have shoes to change into for the rest of the day. Be prepared for a LONG day, but very worth it. It's worth a lot more than the cost. You get to see everything! We booked it out of NYC and flew to buffalo and did a day trip. Highly recommend this to everyone!!
AWESOME!!!! What more can I say. Worth every cent. We were very well taken care of and had an absolutely fabulous day. Don't miss out.
My husband and I had lots of fun on this tour!!
Its great deal for this price. I recommend to all the tourist came to New York!
The day was fantastic. It was a long day but well worth it. The guide we had (Eduardo) was very informative and friendly. It was great value for money. The excursion was very thorough in providing all different views of the falls from the American side, the Canadian side, the boat ride and also the option of the Cave of Winds walk which allowed you to go right into the falls....you get very wet but its a great fun experience that i thoroughly recommend!The lunch provided at the hotel was delicious and there was a lot of choice. This day was the highlight of my whole holiday!
The tour was awesome and Niagara is spectacular! Our tour guide Eduardo was great! It is a very long day (5 am-11pm) but well worth it. We did experience one minor glitch connecting with the tour guide on our return.
Faultless from start to finish.
very highly recommended.
Superb, fantastic, unbelievable views .... our guide for the day eduardo was full of useful info and made our experience all the better...no higher praise could I give ...great to see someone so passionate about his job.
Cannot recommend this tour enough!
The day started for us with pick up from our hotel at around 5.30am, which sounds early but to fit everything in this is more than worth it.
We then headed to the airport with a small group of others on the tour, where we were met in Buffalo by the fantastic tour guide and driver Guisseppe, who was a fountain of knowledge from the start telling us all about the history of the falls.
We started with the Maid of the Mist tour which left us sodden from the boat ride to view the falls, before heading over to the Canadian side, where we had a look in a cute gift shop. After that, we were taken for a buffet lunch overlooking the great falls which was stunning and all included in the tour price.
From there we saw the Canadian side of the falls at Table Rock which is a great spot to be up close to the falls.
After that we returned to the American side where we were given a real insight into the history of the falls and the chance for more photo opportunities.
To the end of the tour we were given the choice of another view of the falls or a walk though The Cave of the Winds, which was an additional cost of $9 (cheaper as we were part of a group) as it is not included in the price. The Cave of the Winds gives you the opportunity to go through the hand dug tunnel and under a part of the falls as you are nearly blown away by the force of it.
It was probably around 10.30 by the time we arrived back at the hotel but you really are getting value for money with this tour!
Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and couldn't recommend Giuseppe highly enough as not only a tour guide but also as driver and translator. Fantastic day and an amazing experience with a great tour guide.
5 o'clock am picked from hotel and transfered to airport, 10 am arrived in Buffalo. All very well organized.
Both (especially the old german) guides in Buffalo from 10 am till 7 pm was great. There was no stress, always informative and helping.
The falls were visited at all possible locations and very, very impressive (take out your shoes at the ship :-)).
Enough time at all locations.
We (together with 26 more visitors in our group) had best weather and missed nothing.
Back at 11 pm in NY.
A long, but unforgettable day!
High recommended and high prefered instead of the 2-day bustour
Fantastic experience, perhaps could have headed to the airport a little earlier in the evening but overall an amazing experience, very informative and well planned. Highly recommend, well worth the asked price
Cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Particularly if you are lucky enough to have Sheri as your guide! It was great to have a small tour group so that it was much more informal and Sheri took us around every view of the falls, with insider knowledge showing us some beautiful quieter spots too.
