What To Expect

Want to get to know Niagara Falls? This is the tour with the most iconic, must-do experiences. Let’s get started.

After a hotel pickup from the New York or Ontario side, start with an exciting ride up to the observation deck at the top of the majestic Skylon Tower. Enjoy the incredible view of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls—the American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls from 520 feet (158 m) in the air.

Next, cross to the US side and get ready for the experience of a lifetime on the Maid of the Mist cruise. This is as good as it gets, the best way to experience one of the world’s most amazing natural wonders. The cruise runs from early May to late October.

During the rest of the year, experience the Journey Behind the Falls excursion, where the sound of the falls is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand in the mist and feel the rush where the Horseshoe Falls rumble from 13 stories above—dropping over 700,000 gallons of water every second at 40 miles per hour. Now that’s powerful.

Other highlights include Table Rock Centre, a retail and observation complex located at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls; Queen Victoria Park, the main parkland in Niagara Falls, opposite the Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls (with Sir Harry Oakes Gardens); the Upper Canadian Rapids from Three Sisters Island, the Lower Niagara River and Gorge, and Whirlpool State Park, overlooking the Niagara Whirlpool with spectacular views of the rapids, the whirlpool itself and the Niagara River.

Please note: The Maid of the Mist portion of this tour departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers booking this tour must have appropriate documentation to enter the United States and Canada.

Boat ride was spectacular as was the Cave tour..should not miss the walk down to the base of the falls.
MaryBrigid_I, Jul 2021
Our tour was changed to the American tour due to COVID but it was a great set of attractions. I wish there was a bit more depth to the commentary by our tour guide Roland.

Great Time
Loren_S, Jul 2021
Well worth it. Randy was an excellent guide. It’s nice having someone pick you up and drop you off at your hotel and you can avoid traffic and the endless search for parking. The attractions had hours long wait times and even then the Maid of the Mist sold out with people at 9AM having to buy tickets for a 3 PM boat ride. With the tour, no wait and all your tickets were purchased and you were ready to go!
