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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

My daughter and I booked this day trip as part of our Christmas holiday in New York. We travelled on the 27th December 2016.
It was a very long day pick up at our hotel was 4am and got dropped off again approx. 9.30pm but the whole experience was amazing.
We were collected from Buffalo airport by our driver and guide Giuseppe who was lovely and very knowledgeable.
We went under the Horseshoe Falls into the tunnels and the noise of the water and the views were simply incredible, be prepared to
get wet! There was snow when we were there so it was extra beautiful.
We had the most wonderful lunch at the Sheraton hotel it was buffet style with so much choice we could have stayed there all afternoon The dining area was up high with excellent views of the falls and a balcony that you could take more photos from if you were brave enough to go outside. Visited the Niagara State Park too and also the viewing platform beside the American Falls.

An amazing day from start to finish! I will give a brief summary of what happened that day as I wasn't too sure what to expect when I booked this. Picked up by a friendly driver from our hotel in New York and taken to the airport. After the flight to Buffalo, which only took about 1 hour, we were met by a lovely tour guide and driver called Giuseppe who took us to Niagara falls on the Canada side first. We spent a few hours in Canada and had great views of the falls from lots of different angles, and even stopped off in different places to look at other things that surrounded the falls, like the worlds largest hydro power station and the cable cart over the whirlpool. Got to go behind the falls too in tunnels and had a great view of the vast water that comes down. Had a buffet lunch at a really nice restaurant which gave you a great view of the falls while you ate. Went back to America afterwards and had another view of the falls before going back to the airport and been picked up and taken back to our hotel. Our day started at 4am early start but you get the most out of your day and it finished at around 7pm. A very busy but exciting day and I feel was the best part of our week's holiday in New York! The tour guide, Giuseppe, was really fantastic too, very friendly and approachable and gave you lots of different information about Niagara falls and what surrouns it. Excellent day, would recommend this to everyone!

This tour was amazing. All the spots that we were brought to gave us breathtaking views of the falls! Was initially worried about the flight procedures but everything was pre-planned so well, and the flight itself was about an hour. Highly highly recommended, best highlight of my trip this year!

Well worth the trip. Very happy to have ticked this off my bucket list. Make sure to do both the Canadian and US side. Top and bottom.

Amazing! Very long day but very worth it. I was picked up at 3:45am by their transfer shuttle, once we arrived at JFK, everything went smoothly. The flight to Buffalo NY was quick and once we arrived, we were greeted by our guide Giuseppe. He was fantastic! So knowledgeable and friendly. Niagara Falls was fantastic and we visited both the American and Canadian sides. My personal favorite was the Canadian side and I was glad that we spent the majority of our time there. Lunch at the Sheraton was delicious and provided beautiful views of the falls. It was an unforgettable day and I would highly recommend this tour.

A great tour guide in Giuseppe who took us to all the sites, timed things perfectly to beat the crowds at the borders and gave us plenty of time at each location. An early start to the day but would highly recommend it - everything ran smoothly the whole day. Excellent!

An absolutely brilliant day and I would highly recommend the day trip to Niagara. The tour guide/bus driver that picked us up from Buffalo Airport couldn't do enough to make our day complete.
The only recommendation I would have is at drop off and pick up at JFK. Our group was a little lost and there needs to be better clarity and support. But otherwise a perfect day
