What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Niagara Falls Day Trip from New York by Private Plane

Viator Exclusive: Niagara Falls Day Trip by Private Plane

Begin this Viator Exclusive guided tour from New York City to Niagara Falls with hotel pickup. After arriving at Republic Executive Airport on Long Island, skip the airport procedures, security check and long lines and hop right on the private plane.

During the 90-minute flight, enjoy the view from the window and indulge in an in-flight breakfast. Once on the ground, get ready for the waterfalls. While other tours take you through Buffalo International Airport, a 40-minute drive once you've landed, this luxury charter takes you right to Niagara, a short 10-minute ride from all the attractions.

Board the comfortable couch for the short ride to the falls and learn about the history of the area from your guide. Enjoy the legendary waterfalls and the many attractions nearby. Indulge in a delicious lunch (if you're traveling independently, lunch is on your own). Choose to explore on your own with five hours of free time or go with the local guide where you'll visit sites on both sides of the border (don't forget your passport). 

At day’s end, relax during your return flight with drop-off back in Manhattan. If you’re lucky, the pilot may fly over Niagara Falls en route, giving you the opportunity to take aerial pics from a unique vantage point.

I was keen to see Niagara Falls during my stay in NYC and didn't mind the early 5.45am start, especially as the pick-up point was only 1 minute walk from my own hotel. This might've been a problem if the hotel had been further away.
Picked up in a party-style coach, and then whisked off to airfield in Long Island and straight onto a small 30-seater plane for the 80min flight to Niagara. A light breakfast was served on flight, and the pilot took a diversion to fly over the falls - amazing!
Straight from plane to coach, and then to Maid of the Mist boat trip excellent! followed by lookout point above the American Falls and then the border crossing to Canada. Stopped for buffet lunch in hotel opposite the falls and then two further stops to admire the views from different places.
The only negative - didn't get to visit the tunnels behind the falls. They include this in the tour in the winter months, when the boat trip isn't running, but would've been nice to do it anyway, maybe missing out one of the other view point/shopping stops.
Excellent tour guide with us all day, we could leave bags etc on the coach whenever we stopped.
The border crossing can take a bit of time, but we were lucky and sailed through quickly.
Dropped back at airfield, flight back to NY, then back on the bus to Manhattan - this took ages due to traffic.
All in all an excellent day, so glad I did it!

An truly amazing experience. If you're short on time while in NY and want to see The Falls, then this trip is a must. From the coach transfer in NYC to the private airport in Long Island, no queues or hassles to worry about, fast and efficient. The Falls were breathtaking especially on the Canadian side, you really get to feel the intensity of the water flowing over the top. On the American side, we experienced the Maid of the Mist which was exhilarating. A long and tiring day due to the traffic from Long Island to NYC but worth every minute. Not to be missed, a must for the to do list.

Highly recommended as you get to see all the sights. I am pleased we upgraded to the private plane option and also went to the Canadian side as the views were fabulous.

We had a fabulous day with Randy as our tour guide. We had a slow start to the day as the weather was too stormy to fly so we had to wait until it was safe to leave New York. Randy made sure we didn't miss anything in Niagara Falls and provided lots of interesting information about the area. Would recommend this tour as a fantastic way to see a truly magical natural attraction.

Amazing trip and amazing experience. Very well organised Viator and The Over the Falls company were very good and professional. The private plane is a must! no queues at airports and landed 10 minutes from the falls. Definitely see the US and Canadian side do not miss the Canadian side!
Well done Viator I totally recommend this!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This trip was amazing! Safes time and hassle esp if you are travelling with young children and time-tight.
I was there with my husband and 2 young children. We took the US side - Niagara Falls. Wonderful! We had our own time to explore and enjoy Niagara Fall.
All went well except the driver of the van from the Niagara Intl Airport was extremely rude. Nonetheless, the assistant lady made it out on behalf. Suggest you change this driver - Spanish-speaking and rude guy!
