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.

Our tour Guide was really friendly and informative. The tour was perfect for our family that ranged from 9 years up to 67 years old. It is worth the 4 1/2 hours. We all had fun and definitely will be using this again when we come back.

Really enjoyed the trip, We had Ed for a guide and he was very knowledgeable and funny. The tour included a lot of stops with a lot for us to see and do. Really glad we went on the tour, we wouldn't have gotten to all those places otherwise.

The tour guide Dan was quite helpful, although it seem as if we were in a rush when driving around in the bus from location to location. The sites were awesome, even though a freak windstorm created a hurricane simulator on the Maid of the Mist and dock. My hats off to the poor gentleman don't know his name who in shorts and a light jacket who soaked to the bone picked up almost all of the spilled ponchos on the stairs. I felt sorry for him. Other than that well worth the money even though we got wet!!!!
