Another great tour have used this company before 10 out of 10 good service all the way
If you visit New York, you need to take the time to see Niagara Falls. The entire experience is wonderful. You fly from NYC to Buffalo. In Buffalo, you meet your tour guide for a short ride to the falls. After getting wet on the Maid of the Mist ride, you will have a lunch with very scenic views of the falls. Just be aware you will be flying on a commercial airline (JetBlue) and you could get delayed in Buffalo like us. The staff is excellent from the gentleman who picked us up at the hotel (very clean van) to the organizer at the airport and most importantly, the guide in Buffalo.
Excellent tour, had a brilliant tour guide. Visited every sight possible around Niagara. Its a very long day, flying is definitely the way to go, costs more but saves you a day in travel. Would have been happy to head back a couple of hours earlier though, but with flight schedules I don't think that this would have been possible. Best tour so far in NY.
This trip is a must do worth every penny the tour guide was excellent the food was excellent it was a long day but well worth it ,was an experience I will never forget .the boat trip is something else when you are in the falls its hard to take in how near you are .
Awesome day, long, full. Still had snow and ice at start of April - cold - take hat, gloves and coat. Great lunch looking out at falls. Would recommend.
this was one trip we enjoyed very much. tour guide was very good. kudos to Edquardo. Applause!!!!!! sorry I don't how to spell your name correctly.
Excellent tour, well organised, varied experiences and value for money.
This tour was amazing!!! we saw the falls from both the american and canadian sides, went on the maid of the mist and had a delicious buffet lunch at the Sheraton hotel. Our guide was fantastic, happy to answer all our questions. Luckily we were on a small bus with only 8 other people, this made it more personable. Unfortunately coming home our flight was delayed 3 hours due to terrible rains in New York. we spent our time at the buffalo airport bar, and made some new friends! It was an extremely long day getting up at 430am and due to the delay didn't return until 1am but it was absolutely amazing and well worth the money. I would recommend it to anyone in an instant! the only disappointing issue was with Viator, once you apply for the tour it takes 48 hours to confirm if there are available spots of not! Our first one was full, as we found out 2 days later and had to reapply for another day. this was a huge inconvience when travelling and trying to plan days. As it outsources to the tour companies they're unable to tell you over the phone if there are vacancies so you had to reapply and wait another 2 days!! i found this frustrating as they also put a hold on the amount on your credit card, when travelling the extra 1000's of dollars here and there are important. The tour however, absolutely incredible and the day ran very smoothly. DO IT!!!!
Excellent tour from pickup to drop off, all of the staff we met were helpful and informative. Our tour guide at Niagara was Eduardo, he was very informative and extremely helpful throughout the day, he managed to make a very full day a pleasure.
This trip (although a very long day!) is well worth the money. It was well organised and the scenery was breathtaking. Highly recommended!
Overall the tour was fantastic.
The driver collecting us from the hotel was very rude and drove badly to the airport. All pickups were late.
Person who met us at JFK Airport was also rude, when we asked him any questions he said we should wait until the whole group was together so he didn't have to say everything 30 times.
For the trip back the organisers had already collected Boarding Cards and my boyfriend and I were not sitting next to each other, it was the same for a few of the other couples too.
Tour Guide was very dull, boring and didn't have a sense of humour. From the time we left the falls till we arrived back at Buffalo airport he kept teling us he wasn't paid and that he relied on tips. He must have asked 8-10 times for tips.
Driver collecting taking us back to the Hotel was late, talked constantly on his mobile phone while driving and dropped us off more than a block from the Hotel because he said it was out of his way.
The airline used - Jet Blue was amazing, check in was easy, staff were friendly and plane took off and landed on schedule.
Niagara Falls is unbelievable, scenery is spectacular.
Didn't queue for the Maid of The Mist Boat.
Crossing the boarder as part of the tour group was painless.
Lunch was fantastic with a great view of the falls.
Stopped at some fantastic spots on both the Canadian and American side of the Falls. Fantastic opportunity for photo's.
Would definitely take the tour again and recommend it to my friends but I do hope they sort out the transfers and guides.
This tour was very good it was an early start but well worth it. The falls are amazing to see. Everything was well organised. lunch was excellent and in a nice location overlooking the falls. Our guide for the day was a great guy and very informative. This tour is definitely one to do.
This was a great tour! The tour guide was tri-lingual and explained everything in three languages. He was professional, knowledgeable, and always kept an eye on all of us so that we were, where we should be. Lunch was at the Sheraton on the Canadian side that over looked the falls, spectacular! The "Maid of the Mist" ride was a once in a life time awesome experience. You can get wet only if you want to, because you are given a rain poncho. Then you are taken to see the falls from all angles both from the Canadian and American sides. There are plenty of potty breaks and souvenir stops. Don't forget to bring your sunglasses.
Breathe taking, pinch me moment, bucket list check off, what more can we say. Very long day, but worth it. Our tour guide Guiseppe was amazing and knowledgeable.
We booked the tour with a German guide. All was perfect. Excellend guide (Manfred).
We decided to book this trip during our Honeymoon stay in New York and it was definitely one of the highlights of our stay. It is a long trip but we were back in our hotel by 11pm and the timings of the day ran very smoothly. Our guide, Guiseppe, was very knowledgable and friendly and was always happy to answer any questions. The lunch was also very good in a hotel with beautiful views of the falls.
Would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting New York the Maid of the Mist is also fantastic and should not be missed..
We had such a wonderful time and would highly recommend this trip. Our tour guide, Eduardo, was an angel and he made our trip so memorable and fabulous! He not only showed us where to go but also what to watch for and treated my 70 year old mother like a princess. Even though our flight was delayed due to weather, it couldn't erase the fantastic memories that we made and the happiness we felt all day. We can't thank you enough for making this trip to New York so special.
well organised from start to finish.a wonderful experience.seeing the falls from both sides was un believeable and the boat trip was superb. we had a wonderful guide,guisseppe,he explained everything about the whole area and was extremely knowledgeable. you felt you had learnt so much about the area in such a short space of time.getting up early for flight from newark was well worth it. lunch in the sheraton was excellent (buffet lunch )with great variety of dishes and you could have as much as you want! the view from the sheraton was superb so dont forget the camera.all in all an excellent 14 hrs experience. thank you guisseppe.
Absolutely fantastic, it was the highlight of our holiday. A very early start and a long day but well worth it. The guide in Buffalo was excellent providing clear information and very helpful. A very big thank you to him. I would most certainly recommend the trip to anyone.
I thoroughly enjoyed Niagara Falls the guide was great his name Guiseppe, and had a great day. The lunch at Sheraton was nice and I would recommend it to anyone.
This fabulous, our pick car in New York was 30 minutes late but this was due to 2 other passengers forgetting their passports and the car having to return to their hotel to collect .
Our plane was about 1 hour late taking off on both the outward and return flights but this was due to American air traffic controllers taking industrial action.
Everything else was perfect and went according to plan. Our guide was first class speaking 3 different languages for the 16 people in our party.
The lunch time buffet meal at the Sheraton Hotel on the Canadian side of the falls was excellent with a good selection of both hot and cold dishes plus salads and desserts.
Because visitors to the falls were not very many we were able to see other sights near the falls without being rushed.
Needless to say the Maid of the Mist trip was the highlight of the day and it was worth every penny.
A long day but worth every minute.
