What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Niagara Falls Day Trip from New York by Private Plane

Viator Exclusive: Niagara Falls Day Trip by Private Plane

Start your Viator Exclusive to the Niagara Falls with a hotel pickup from midtown Manhattan, and travel by minibus to New York’s Republic Executive Airport at Farmingdale, Long Island. No morning traffic to contend with, so your ride to the airport is less than an hour. Here, check in to your private plane: a modern 30-seater Embraer 120. Unlike other air tours — where check-in procedures can take up to two hours — this exclusive experience allows you to board straight away without long security lines or delays from waiting for other passengers!

Relax on the short 1.5 hour flight, enjoy a delicious inflight breakfast, refreshments and friendly service in the cabin while you gaze out the window and take in landscape of Upstate New York. Then, touch down at Niagara Falls International Airport to enjoy your experience at the waterfalls. While other tours take you through Buffalo International Airport, a 40-minute drive once you've landed, this luxury charter takes you right to Niagara, a short 10-minute ride from all the attractions you've been wanting to see. Simply select either option upon booking: a trip to the US side to see the American Falls, or a trip to the Canadian side (passport or visa required) where the full fury of the Horseshoe Falls awaits. After touching down, hop aboard a shuttle coach and travel to your chosen Niagara Falls destination to explore and sightsee independently. How you spend your time at the beautiful natural landmark is up to you!

Each experience include five hours of free time, admission to four Niagara Falls attractions, your return flight and drop-off back in Manhattan. Food and drinks are at your own expense, but several cafes and eateries dot the banks of the Niagara Falls. See the Itinerary for full details on any attractions mentioned.

US Experience
Meet your host on arrival, and travel by coach to the water’s edge. Your experience includes four incredible attractions to help you get the most out of your time at the falls.

Canada Experience
Show your passport or visa on arrival to your host, and then travel by coach to the Canada side of the falls. As with the US day trip, how you spend your time is up to you, but your experience includes four attractions that can be visited at any point during your time at the falls.

Itinerary

US-Side Attractions:
‘Maid of the Mist’ Cruise:
Hop aboard the Maid of the Mist sightseeing boat and enjoy a 30-minute cruise around the base of the falls and into the basin of the thundering Canadian Horseshoe Falls. In operation since the mid-19th century, the historical cruise is one of North America’s top visitor attractions, enjoyed by millions of people from all over the world.

Cave of the Winds Tour:
Enjoy an interactive experience through a stormy mist zone within Niagara Gorge. Wearing a souvenir rain poncho plus specially designed sandals, follow a guide along wooden walkways to the Hurricane Deck, where breathtaking torrents gush a few feet from you to create tropical storm conditions.

Niagara Adventure Theater:
Watch a 40-minute film inside the Niagara Falls State Park Visitor Center, and learn all about the Niagara Falls’ history. Headsets are available for anyone wishing to listen to the film in French, Spanish, Mandarin, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and German.

Aquarium of Niagara:
Support local conservation efforts by visiting this family-friendly aquarium on the banks of the Niagara Falls. The attraction is home to penguins, seahorses and sea lions alongside more than 1,500 other aquatic animals that represent ecosystems from the Great Lakes to coral reefs.

Canada-Side Attractions:
Hornblower Niagara Cruise:
Step aboard a state-of-the-art sightseeing boat and enjoy a 30-minute cruise within Niagara Great Gorge. Have your camera poised, ready to capture close-up sights of the thundering American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls and famous Horseshoe Falls.

Journey Behind the Falls:
Head inside Table Rock Welcome Centre near the Horseshoe Falls, and descend 150 feet (46 meters) by elevator to observation decks behind the gushing cascades of water. Walk through tunnels around the Cataract Portal and Great Falls Portal to both the upper- and lower-observation decks, and gaze in awe as the water crashes to the bottom of the falls in front of you.

Niagara’s Fury:
Stand on a moving platform to get an insight into the mighty power of Mother Nature at the Niagara Falls while hearing ancient stories about the natural landmark. As the commentary takes place, the air temperature drops, and water and snow is sprayed through the air; it’s an all-encompassing experience!

White Water Walk:
Take an elevator to the bottom of the Niagara Gorge, and walk along the boardwalk adjacent to the mighty rapids of the Niagara River.

Great day out from start to finish.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

An amazing day out ..... early pick up near Times Sqaure but everything worked smoothly - after a quick passport check on the bus we were driven right up to the plane at Farmingdale and in the air by 0800 ... completely avoided all the airport waiting and crowds. There was only 26 of us and the plane was great - breakfast was served and we got incredible views of Manhattan as we turned North and the pilot gave us an incredible fly by of Niagara on the way in from 4,000ft - awesome is the only word!! After drop off for those visiting the US side we crossed into Canada and were given our tickets ... and then we had 5 1/2 hours free time to explore - this for me is one of the highlights ... no “follow the tour guide” , just do the day the way you want to. Hornblower was brilliant- queues werent too bad and Falls were fantastic. We decided not to go to the White Water Walk – instead I had booked tickets for the Skylon Tower. It’s only a few minutes walk from the main road and the view across both sets of Falls and down the Niagara River is amazing.
Lunch in the Hard Rock Café – very friendly and then we wanted to do the Walk Beneath the Falls – the lift had been out of operation in the morning but we had seen people there when we were on Hornblower – sadly the lift was out of order all afternoon and we weren’t able to descend – this was our only disappointment of the day. We went to Niagara’s Fury which was fun to finish with. The freedom to enjoy the views, to go to the Skylon and Hard Rock was brilliant – much better than a fully guided tour.
Customs back in to the US took a while but the journey home was right on time and after the main drop off in Times Square we were dropped in Park Avenue close to our hotel …. Brilliant day, brilliant experience …. The private jet was well worth the cost !!! Thanks to our guides, pilots and to Heidi our cabin crew.
