What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls American Side Highlights Tour

Maid in America

This is as close as anyone can get to Niagara Falls—without riding over them in a barrel, of course. This seasonal (May-October) tour travels to the edge of the falls, and safely back.

The journey begins at Niagara Falls State Park, the oldest state park in the United States, and all the key viewing areas of the Niagara region — from the relatively unknown to some of the most famous tourist spots in the world.

Take an elevator ride down into the Niagara Gorge, where wooden walkways along the Niagara River lead to the observation deck of the Cave of the Winds, just a few feet from the powerful rush of the falls. It’s like being caught in a tropical storm here. This is what it means to be close to Niagara Falls. Really close.

Take another elevator ride up to the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls — the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls — from the Niagara Falls Observation Tower. Stand over Niagara Gorge with an unobstructed view as the waters rage below.

Visit Goat Island, that small island in the Niagara River separating the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls.

Hop on board the popular Maid of the Mist for a boat ride to the very edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, the most powerful waterfall in North America.

Get to know Niagara Falls — from state parks to islands; from power plants to the iconic falls themselves, this tour of Niagara Falls, USA, covers it all.
