My wife and I were amazed at the rapid falls and especially the mist covering all of us from the boat ride
near the falls. A lot of beauty surrounds you . We highly recommend seeing this.
Fantastic day trip, scenery amazing. All of the staff were brilliant, nothing too much trouble. Would totally recommend to everyone
10/10 experience for the day. Well worth the money! I'm from NZ.
1. Got up to meet our Limo bus at 6 am which dropped us off at Long Island airport with 10 other people.
Hopped on our chartered jet plane ( even got to sit in cockpit with pilots) and flew to ? ( can't remember) Which was just on the USA side of the Canadian border. We were fed a yummy breakfast on plane totally spoilt.
2. Picked up by our tour bus and lovely tour guide and we were driven to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Dropped off to enjoy everything Niagara Falls has to offer which is heaps. Had VIP tickets to all major activities to enjoy.
3. I must say we were good little tour participants in every activity as there is so much to see.
4. I learnt some more new things, there are 2 sides to Niagara Falls USA side and Canadian side. So that means 2 big waterfalls, both sides have different activities, but we chose to go to Canada just so we can say we've been there. Lol.
5. We dressed in Oompah Loompah raincoat outfits for each activity a selection of yellow, blue or pink.
6. We went under the falls, in the falls and on the falls.Participated in an interactive movie getting wet at each activity so dress appropriately. The one thing we didn't do was climb the falls.
My one recommendation for other tourists is don't go on the WEGO bus if you have only 40 minutes to meet your returning tour bus to catch your plane.
A round trip is 1hr and 30 minutes. Please don't be like us and be 45 minutes late to catch return tour bus.
However the suspense of missing the plane was just an additional highlight to our day!
The tour guide, limo drivers, pilots and air stewardess were all lovely people!
Such an enjoyable day and extraordinary experience Loved it would do it again!
Can't wait to stick photos up!
This tour was well worth the money excellent from start to finish picked up from hotel in an executive bus and taken to Farmingdale Long Island great flight to niagra our guide Brian was very knowledgeable on Niagra Falls he was a brilliant guide with a great personality who could'nt do enough to make our trip memorable would recommend it to anyone we did the Canadian side which was awesome highlight of our trip to New York glad we did it.
Fantastic day the driver in buffalo was fantastic and very informative. Definitely choose canada side!!!
I thought this was a really well organised trip- coach pick up from Midtown NYC and delivered straight to the aircraft on the ramp. Following an ID check, we boarded and departed to Niagara Falls Int Airport where again we were met on the ramp by the coach. A short drive to drop off on the American side before crossing the border. The driver/guide was helpful and informative. The price included entry to 4 attractions but did NOT include the bus service which links them. We had to pay extra for this. We had about 5 1/2 hours at the resort which seemed a lot at first but was only just enough to visit all the attractions and have lunch. Time may be even tighter in high season when the attractions are busy. On the return journey it took 45 minutes to cross the U.S. border, despite there only being one coach ahead of us. This was frustrating. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable trip which I highly recommend.
This was an excellent trip. Well organised and very enjoyable. It was the highlight of our visit to New York.
A long day, but definitely worth it! Lovely comfortable minibus to the plane, no waiting around, we got straight on which is great after being up so early! Comfortable flight with a light snack and pleasant stewardess. It was all hassle free once we got to the falls, exchanged our voucher then our time was our own to walk around the area, go on the boat and explore behind the falls. Would definitely recommend this trip.
The trip was very well organised trip from start to finish. We had plenty of time to look around, and enjoy the activities. Brian out tour guide was brilliant, he was so enthusiastiac, well informed, and very helpful.
We were also lucky to have been able to fly right over the Falls in the plane which was wonderful
This was the highlight of our trip to New York for both my father and myself. The organisation was perfect, we had plenty of time to see all the attractions, as well as visit the Canadian side too. There was no need to worry as everything was organised for us. A special thank you must be mentioned to the pilot who gave us a special fly-past over the Niagara Falls. Absolutely fantastic!
Well worth every penny. We met the luxury coach in Times Square and after about an hour we pulled up by the side of the plane. The stewardess looked at our passports and we got on, no long queues! We were soon taking off, breakfast was a sandwich yoghurt etc. which was very acceptable, you don't do this for a slap up breakfast!! The journey was very good, bit noisy but you got used to it. We soon arrived and there was another luxury coach waiting to take us to the Falls, again no queues straight out of the airport. We chose to go to the Canadian side and was glad we did, from that side you can see both the American and Canadian Falls, you don't get such a good look at the horseshoe falls from the American side. We did everything we were supposed to do including the boat trip, all in the price and we had a brilliant time. A few hours later we were picked up and taken back to the plane again straight through the gate to the steps. What a way to travel, well worth the price. Thank you to everyone concerned , I would highly recommend this, don't think about it just do it.
Fantastic place--unbelievable really!.The Canadian side encompasses an unsurpassed experience.
The plane flight to and from was very enjoyable and provided the opportunity to see a world wonder and to make the most of our precious time in the USA
The trip to Niagara Falls was awesome. We loved it. We would not have had time to drive up to Niagara Falls during our trip to New York, so this was an efficient way to stay in New York and go see the Falls. We would highly recommend this tour.
one of the greatest most breathtaking experiences of my life .
also want to thank the team at viatour as i had made an error on the date i belives i had booked and after calling them to confirm was told i should have been on the bus that day , my dreams were shattered beliving i had lost the ticket , but the AMAZING COSTUMER SERVICE TEAM relaxed me and enrolled me on the next available date. I highly recommend this tour as well as using this company as my hoilday could have ended in tears but they put the biggest smile on my face . AN PLEASURE TO DEAL WITH AN AMAZING TEAM OF PEOPLE whose costumer service is second to none ,
iI rate this team and tour 6 star ******
We have been in the New York area many times and decided this time to make a day trip to Niagara Falls. We thought one day might not be enough but we were pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed it. In fact, we would highly recommend Viator to anyone and especially those that only have a day to see the falls. We went on the Canada side which shortened our visit because we were dropped off last and picked up first but I don't think there is any doubt that the view from the Canada side is the best. I was a little concerned about flying on a turbo prop plane but it was great and a very smooth ride. The bus was comfortable and it was nice not worry about traffic. We did not feel rushed and had a nice lunch in the restaurant overlooking the falls. Our tickets included a cruise and walk underneath the falls. We loved every minute of it! Thanks Viator for a great day!!
fabulous day, door to door service to the private plane. freedom to plan your own day and not miss a thing. Fabulous!!
The tour was well organised and Niagara was a sight to behold. Pilots and hostess were brilliant and got an air view of Niagara as left. Bus to Long Island a bit of a journey but well worth it for the off bus onto airplane without check and similarly at Niagara, Would recommend tour
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.
I highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants to see Niagara falls in a day! We went on a Monday in August and the customs process was nice and quick. The only problem was that we only got 4 hours of free time and not the 5 hours as advertised. The deal includes 4 activities, however we realistically were only able to do 2 due to waiting times (even though we were pre allocated times). Tip: definitely do the boat ride first and arrange the rest of your day's activities from there as you won't want to miss out on the horn blower!
