This tour is a great way to see the falls in a day. Everything is organised so well, once you have found your way to the pick up point you don't even have to think, it's all too easy. Recommend this trip, absolutely.

Great Tour, the Manhattan pick up location was near Times Square so nice and central. Taking a private plane allowed maximum time at the falls, and also an aerial view of the falls to start the trip off. Pick the Canadian side.

My experience with Viator was amazing. Everything (the bus, the plane, the bus, the driver) lined up beautifully, our driver was sooo considerate and helpful, and we had a brilliant time. I would recommend Viator to anyone!

Excellent
Trip was exactly as described in brochure
Falls were a sight to behold
Had to pay for local buses on the Canadian side which was disappointing as I expected everything to be included

Great day trip - as other customers have commented feels like a "VIP" experience.
Just note that if you choose to go to the Canada side we only have 3.5 hours to do the activities and could only do the main 3 as the white water walk was a long distance away. However our driver made up for this by taking us to Goat Island on the USA side so got to see both which was great!
Worth the money and awesome experience I will never forget!

It was pretty fabulous! Not a glitch!
It was the perfect way to see the falls and nothing is quite comparable in terms of the experience!
I travelled with 2 little ones in tow.
Excellent and I didn't have any difficulty whatsoever.

The Niagara day trip was awesome. I came from Queens and the Van was sitting at the meeting spot a half hour early so I did not have to stand on the street. The airplane was great. The breakfast was better then I expected. The second van was waiting for us when we landed. We were dropped at the American Side, given our tickets and on our own. We now had 5 hours to run around which was just enough time to see what we wanted. The only change I would want is if we could be picked up in Queens. I could have met the van at exit 25. I enjoyed the trip and would recommend it.

If your in New York for a short stay this is a brilliant way to see the Falls. Do some research before booking the Canadian or USA side.
Our tour guide was briilliant even drew me a map of the order to do things in and stopped at a couple of other places because we were ahead of schedule.

Very well organised, luxury coach to drive us to airport and then great flight and crew , Sandra and the pilots were truly first class , thank you. Then short bus ride where Rich the driver showed us where to go at Niagara US side and recommended what to see first then on our own to explore. Wasn't hard to find the water etc . It was a fantastic experience.

Well worth the price of the tour. My only complaint is that the amount of time given in Niagra was about an hour too short, not quite enough time to do everything we wanted to without rushing through the experience. And after we rushed back to the airport, we had to wait for the airplane anyway, should add at least another hour of time at Niagra to the trip.

Note from Viator: Thank you for sharing your experience. Many of the guests have mentioned wanting more times at the Falls and we've listened. Starting in July, flights will be leaving later out of Niagara so guests will be able to enjoy an extra hour visiting the attractions.

All staff and elements of tour came together brilliantly. This was an amazing day and was well worth the money. If you are limited with time, but want to see The Falls,this trip is a must!!!

Phenomenal!
We had a terrific day in the Niagara Falls. The day was excellently organized and executed.
We were picked up at early morning hour by a very luxurious minibus, drove an hour to a private airfield near NYC, where we boarded a small airplane. The flight was great, and the pilot had a special surprise for us, making a flyby over the Falls in a low altitude ! (something you can do only with small aircraft of course).
We then had another ride (right from the steps of the aircraft) to the falls themselves. You get your vouchers and then it's all up to you how to spend the next 5 hours.
We took the US side (you can opt for the Canadian side), immensely enjoyed "Maid of the Mist" (a must), "Cave of the Winds" (very recommended), "Terrapin Point" (a must), the Observation Tower (a must). The falls are phenomenal and the US side feels truly like a natural park.
Back on the bus, our driver took us to the "Whirlpool", a terrific place with world's largest natural whirlpool, and then to the "3 Sisters" islands. From there, back to the plane, and we were back in Manhattan by 6.30 PM.
All in all, I can't recommend this enough. If you haven’t been to the falls, and are on a tight schedule – this day trip is the ultimate trip. You'll feel like a celebrity, have your own free time, all arrangements are done for you in the highest level – no headaches – just enjoy !
Hats down to the guys at Viator, this was absolutely great, Thanks !!

A really great day out. I was over in NYC for a couple of weeks on business and wanted something to do at the weekend. I've done the usual tours and fancied getting out of town - typically I've dismissed Niagara as too far and any flights are via JFK/Buffalo which is a pain having to do all the security checks. Saw this option was via private plane and without the usual hassles so decided to give it a go. Ok its a fairly long day with the early pick up but just means you can cram a lot in and always grab a bit of sleep on the bus transfer if needed. Flight was a lot of fun - not often I've been in something as small and was met at the other end by a coach on the runway. I decided to stay on the US side of the falls as again didn't want to wait around at immigration - had enough time to do the boat trip, caves and see the park - all a lot of fun although be prepared to get a bit wet! Overall a fantastic day out and covered a lot of ground, definitely recommend it, especially if you're a bit short on time.

A remarkable and memorable experience! From the moment we were greeted at the hotel by the driver, until the very end of it, every part of this trip was just well put together. We were transferred by a luxury motor coach in New York with nice leather seats. Motor coach was extremely clean and in great working conditions and the driver was very nice, friendly and professional. We arrived at Farmingdale private airport in Long Island and I could see our plane from the bus, ready and waiting for us. This got me extremely excited! When it was time to board, I felt like a very special passenger. Flight attendant was greeting us as we all entered the plane. The private plane flight to Niagara made me feel like a true VIP celebrity. A big plus was also having our own flight crew and a dedicated, pleasant and gracious flight attendant; this makes a big difference in this entire experience. During the flight, we were even served breakfast on the plane. I visited the Canadian side and was delighted about the smooth customs and immigration process into Canada. It took us no more than 10 minutes to get through it and we were back on the coach and started heading towards the visitors’ center. Once in Canada, the amazing view of the Falls in all of their splendor exceeded my expectations. I could not believe what I was seeing. This natural wonder is definitely a must see on your list if you have never seen them. We picked up our passes and headed towards the Hornblower Cruise. What a breathtaking experience! This is a must see and do for all those going to Niagara Falls. All of the attractions were as good and fun as I expected them. I even had time to shop for souvenirs and grabbed a quick bite as well in the main visitors’ center. Sadly, all good things come to an end. It was time to return back to the States and we all had to go through US immigration too. Once we crossed the border, we boarded the plane at Niagara International Airport and headed to Farmingdale in New York. Our flight crew surprised us with an aerial tour of the falls and we were all able to take aerial pictures of the Falls from the plane. This was another unexpected highlight of our trip! This trip has exceed all of my expectations as no details were forgotten or left behind. It was fun, exciting and unforgettable. I highly recommend it and encourage everyone to do it!
