What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls Day Trip from New York by Air

Niagara Falls

Your day trip to Niagara Falls starts with the transfer from Manhattan to the airport, where you’ll hop aboard the plane for your approximate 1-hour flight from New York City to upstate New York. When you arrive, make the bus journey to the falls with your tour guide, who leads you on an exploration of Niagara sights on both the American side and Canadian side.

Fuel up with a buffet lunch at a restaurant overlooking the falls, and then embark on one of two experiences, depending on the time of year of your tour. In the warmer months (usually May to October), take a 30-minute boat ride on the waters of the Niagara River for an up-close look at American Falls and Horseshoe Falls, cruising close enough to the base of the powerful cascades to feel the spray of water on your skin.

During the cooler months (generally November to April), get a deeper look at the waterfall on Journey Behind the Falls, an attraction that allows you to walk behind the sheets of water for a different perspective. When your time at Niagara is up, return to New York City by air to end your day trip.

Please note:
  • Due to the extreme popularity of this tour, a minimum 5-day advance booking is required.
  • At time of booking you are required to provide each passenger's name and date of birth as it appears on their passport(s). You are also required to provide your hotel details so that the supplier can schedule your pickup. Failure to include this information will result in your reservation not being completed. Any name change after confirmation, will incur an amendment fee by the supplier directly.
  • Passenger(s) MUST have the required documentation to enter Canada.
  • Depending on weather at the time of your tour, Niagara Falls boat cruises could continue into November, or may cease earlier than October 31.

A great tour, a great day.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

This was breathtaking...we visited Niagara Falls on one of the coldest days it has seen for some time.
The tour was arranged very very well, when you consider the transport involved planes and buses, and hotels etc.
Our day started at 5:45am and we got back to the hotel that night at about 9:00pm, so a very long day but very worth it.
This is just one of those things that you just HAVE to do.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

This was breathtaking ......on one of the coldest days Niagara Falls had seen for some time, the falls were frozen when we visited in December winter
The tour was very well arranged when you consider catching planes and buses were required to get us to the falls and back again
It was a long day, our hotel pick up was 5:45am and we were back at the hotel at about 9:00pm, but well worth it

This tour overall was great, it had snowed overnight so there was fresh white snow everywhere and it looked beautiful!
Some recommendations, would be nice to get a mock itinerary of whats going to happen on the day, you kind of go into it blind with only a pick up time, nothing else. Why did we stop at a souvenir shop for 25 minutes, would of been better to have more time at the falls.
The view from lunch was great, food was ok. Tour guide Edwardo was good, very knowledgeable and didn't leave anyone behind even if they were running 25mins late from the time he told us to meet. Our plane was delayed 4h on the way back to NYC but that wasn't the tours fault, just bad weather in NYC.
Definitely recommend if you are short on time and want to see Niagara falls. We would of stayed overnight in Niagara if we did it again.

Such awesome sights around Niagara Falls. Well worth the long day!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

Great trip and as you see all the different sides of Niagara Falls including the Canadian side which is spectacular.
Five stars based on the Great service and Care from the Buffalo side of the trip .
Grayline New York service was poor in communication and care and only deserve a one star rating
