Highly recommended if you want to experience as much as possible at Niagara in a day!
Pick up and drop off from our hotel was included. Flights from JFK to Buffalo were with Jet Blue and took approx 1.5 hours. Eduardo, our guide picked us up from the airport and was very knowledgeable. We felt well looked after throughout the trip.The trip covers both the Canadian and American no visa needed for the canadian side sides of the falls and includes a ride on the boat. Prepare to get soaked! Lunch was at the Sheraton hotel all you can eat buffet with a great view of the falls. American dollars are accepted while in Canada and there are plenty of opportunities to buy souvenirs.
We were the only ones on the tour and it was AMAZING. Our driver was very knowledgeable and friendly, and winter is a great time to see the falls because no mist and no crowds!
Remember, if you're from a country that doesn't customarily tip: you WILL need to tip the driver.
Fantastic trip! From hotel pick up to drop off, it couldn't gone any smoother. Airport transfer perfect. The Falls were breath taking. So glad we went to the Canadian side of the falls. Loved the boat ride. Highly recommend this tour.
Excellent, pick up on time, although flight delayed mechanical, we did not miss a thing and not rushed at all. Guiseppe fantastic tour guide and very well oranised, lovely lunch at the Sheraton, boat trip, a very good day indeed. And picked up from airport hassle free
Great tour! Everything was very well planned out! You fly to buffalo then are met by your guide Eduardo who is extremely knowledgable. Very long day but totally worth it.
Having read the last few reviews, there really isn't anything else to add. But I feel obliged to, just to compound what a great experience this trip was. Viator, really does deserve a pat on the back. For as jaw dropping as The Falls are, a day trip like this is really made or broken with the organisation. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel at 5.20am, to when we were dropped back at 22.00, the day ran like clockwork. This included transfers to and from airports, our boarding passes were retrieved for us. Going through Canadian customs, and USA customs on our return. Transfer to The Falls, lunch at The Sheraton, overlooking The Falls. A boat ride into The Falls. All of this , plus we had the company of our tour guide Guisseppe. What or who that man does't know, isn't worth knowing. Friendly, knowledgable, helpful. The list is endless. I can't speak highly enough of my experience on this trip.
This was a great day, it was a very long day though. We were picked up at 5.30am and returned to our hotel at about 11pm. The transfer staff were friendly and helpful and when we arrived in Buffalo our tour guide Guisseppe was very friendly and very knowledgable and made for a really enjoyable day. We spent most of our time on the Canadian side of the falls which I was really happy with because the view is much much better. This tour is well worth doing, I would do it again.
Absolutely Fantastic!! We flew from Kennedy Airport to Buffalo with JetBlue. We had roomy seats with personal monitors and complimentary snacks and drinks even thought the flight was only an hour long. Our friendly and informative tour guide Giuseppe was waiting for us at the airport. He has obviously been doing this job for a while as everyone knew him and he was extremely well liked this helped a lot when skipping the lines. We had no trouble crossing the border into Canada, In fact the officials there were so friendly they were telling us jokes. Giuseppe showed us the power stations and took us to a lovely and quaint gift shop where they gave us samples of maple syrup cookies. We had lunch at the Sheraton where the views are tremendous. We then went on the Hornblower which was absolutely amazing and it was worth the long day just for that. Afterwards Giuseppe took us to the top of the horseshoe falls where the view is stunning! We loved all of our trip to NY but this was definitely the highlight!
What an amazing experience!! The booking and confirmation was very easy and went without a hitch. All the staff from start to finish was very welcoming and friendly who answered every question with interest. The whole trip was organised amazingly meaning we had a stress free day. We travelled on a mini bus with Spanish people too but the tour guide ensured that everyone was given the same information which was very informative. He couldn't have tried harder to ensure that everyone was happy. We stopped off several times throughout the day at different parts of the falls as well as having lunch on the Canadian side with amazing views of the falls. As we travelled in February the boat was not running so we went behind the falls which was included in the trip. Overall an amazing experience and well worth every penny!! Just be prepared for the freezing temperature if you are travelling in winter.... it was -15 degrees Celsius with a feel temperature of -22!!
Be prepared for a long and tiring day. In the winter, you will need very warm clothing as the weather can be biting cold. You will be collected from a designated hotel at approximately 05:00. Stops will be made at further hotels to collect others. When you arrive at the Airport, your driver will hand you your boarding pass with information on gate numbers etc.
Once through security and airside, you can shop, have breakfast and rest until your flight is called.
The hour long flight is comfortable with free in flight snack.
Once you have disembarked, you will be met by your guide for the day.
Ours was Giuseppe. A very pleasant, affable and entertaining fellow. He was very knowledgeable in his field. He provided a running commentary and answered all questions with enthusiasm.
All our stops were long enough to visit the attractions with sufficient time for small explorations and photographs.
Lunch was an all you can eat buffet at The Sheraton Hotel on the Canadian side. It was mainly salads for vegetarians but tasty none the less.
There is a further fee involved which is a voluntary 15 gratuity for the guide.
That is 15 of the cost of the tour! I was rather annoyed at being informed of this at the beginning of the tour but by the end of it, I was happy to hand over the cash to Giuseppe.
It is a very long day, especially is you have to get up very early to hop across NYC to the designated pick up hotel for 05:00. Our flight was delayed which meant we did not get back until approximately 22:00.
All in all a great day out and a tour that is an experience you would be silly to miss.
great tour very good guide out of season so no waiting in line good quality lunch included will use again.
It was excellently organized and everything went extremely smoothly. Our guide Eduardo was very knowledgeable and considerate. We would highly recommend it for those with only a day to spare.
I really enjoyed the trip. It was off season so we didn't have any queues , everything was efficient. Our guide Eduardo was very helpful. I was the only English speaker with 6 Spanish speakers but he always tried to make sure I was included with all the info as did my fellow travellers. I understand that the tours need to be a bit flexible with regards to the amount of time there is allowing for traffic, delays etc. so our trip seemed to be just filling in time at some points even with our inbound flight being delayed over a hour. Our group all wanted to go up the Skylon tower and we had enough time to do that at our own cost. I would recommend tha be given as an option to be included in the tour. Otherwise great way to see Niagara Falls when time you only,have one day free.
Fantastic tour from pick up at hotel, to flight , to tour bus, to a great tour guide Guissepe , the Niagra Falls were spectacular, from beginning to end, it was 100 we even had blue skies and sunshine to top it off, I would definitely go again, also the lunch was fantastic too. REMARKABLE!!!!!!
I cannot explain in words how incredible this experience was. I loved every minute. Even the flight to Buffalo and back was great Jet Blue is an awesome airline The whole day was organised extremely well. I felt like we had plenty of time at all our stops and our tour guide/bus driver Giuseppe was the best!! Funny and informative, couldn't ask for anyone better. Lunch was also great with a view you could not believe. I would do this day again in a heartbeat... you will not regret booking this tour!
Great tour, great sights, very well organised. However its a very long day, pick up starts at 6am and by the time we reached our hotel it was 11.45. But a great way to see the falls since we were in NY for 6 days
Everything worked like clockwork, very pleased and satisfied.
Helicopter flyover was an extra excitement we all enjoyed tremendously, since we didnt have Canadian visas and still got to see the Horseshoe.
Terrific day. Brilliant guide/driver. Well organised, with excellent lunch at the Sheraton included.
And the falls were just so impressive, a wonderful experience not to be missed.
A very big day but well worth it! Glad we saw the falls from both USA and Canada. We were looked after really well all day and had a great lunch. Giuseppe was wonderful!
This was well worth the expense and the long day. We were picked up at the time stated outside our hotel and taken to the airport for a short flight to Buffalo and met by Guiseppe who was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone stayed together all day. The views from both sides were superb and we had lunch in the Sheraton overlooking the falls. We didn't get back till 11.30 pm from 6 am but enjoyed it
A fantastic day, which my family enjoyed thoroughly! Thanks to Eduardo, our guide at Niagara.
great trip from start to finish our guide Eduardo was fantastic , even though we lost 2 hours of our trip due to bad weather delaying our flight we had a brilliant day
My wife and I both thoroughly enjoyed Niagara Falls. It was beautiful to see. Our guide Giuseppe was great- very informative!!
