What You Can Expect

Niagara Falls American-Side Tour with Maid of the Mist Boat Ride

Maid of the Mist, Niagara Falls

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

The journey begins with 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. This is what it means to be close to Niagara Falls. Really close.

Then it’s another elevator ride up to the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls — the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls — from the observation tower. Stand over Niagara Gorge with an unobstructed view of all three as the waters rage below.

Finally, 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.

Notice: The Maid of the Mist departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers must have proper credentials to enter the United States.

Operating dates of the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds are approximate and depend on weather conditions.

It was a wonderful experience despite the cold and rainy weather we went in late October. The views were espectacular! And the boat tour was awesome. Our guide Lizardo was the best. He keeps nuts and seeds in his pockets and squirrels and birds come to him. I had a bird eating from my hand! Totally recommendable!!!

Our guide Pat could not have been better. He was a native New Yorker and was very comfortable with the area. It was a very relaxing, pleasing time and I would highly recommend the tour. Make sure you ask for Pat!

Niagara Falls is a beautiful sight and James Egan made it fun and interesting to see. He was very knowledgeable with many facts and stories. He took the time with us to be sure we saw everything and had photo opportunities. We were able to see much more than we could have on our own. It was apparent that he enjoys his job and likes sharing the history of the falls. We enjoyed the wonderful scenery and Jim's guidance.

This is a tour you don't want to miss. The tour bus picks you up at your hotel, takes you to the boat landing area. Your take the boat trip to both falls, getting rather wet on the way! then you get to spend time on the Observation Deck, which is excellent for photo ops. After that, a trip a few minutes away to Whirlpool Rapids. then you get driven to the Cave of the Winds, which lets you out right under Niagara Falls. You will get soaked on the hurricane deck I watched people get knocked over - the deck is aptly named! but it's completely fun!

Maid of the Mist boat ride was something one has to experience. The wind coming off the falls made it all the more exciting and I was awe struck.

The Niagra Falls Tour and Maid in the Mist was fantastic, have been waiting to do this since I saw it in a film as a child. We came during our tour of the States and Canada for our 40th wedding anniversary, would recommend it as something you really should do if you ever get the chance to visit.
Our guide Pat R was brilliant.
