What To Expect

Why choose between an American tour of Niagara Falls or a Canadian one? A proper visit to Niagara Falls includes activities on both sides of the border. This tour takes care of that important detail.

Get things started on the right foot with a convenient hotel pickup (from Niagara Falls area) in a comfortable sightseeing vehicle, complete with an expert guide who knows everything there is to know about Niagara Falls.

This day trip to Niagara Falls hits all the hot spots of the area.

What more can be said about the Maid of the Mist boat cruise? This is the ultimate Niagara Falls activity and no trip to the falls is complete without it. Grab a poncho and get up close and personal with the falls. Feel the cool spray and the powerful sounds of the water. This is the experience of a lifetime for those taking the tour between late April and October.

Outside of those dates, take an equally exciting “Journey Behind the Falls” to explore the scenic tunnels below and behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Make no mistake—this is as close to the falls as anyone wants to be. The sound is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand back, or in this case stand just close enough to feel the power. It’s exhilarating.

Other stops on this tour include the Niagara Gorge, Goat Island, Prospect Point Park observation tower overlooking the falls, Queen Victoria Park, and the famous Floral Clock, one of the largest in the world.

Please note: The Maid of the Mist tour departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers booking this tour must have appropriate documentation to enter the United States and Canada.

Josh was the best host for our one day tour of the Falls. He shared a lot of information about the falls, people who went over the falls, and local lore. He was absolutely entertaining. We covered a lot in a little time, but we never felt rushed. Felt like we spent all the time we needed to at each site. Even had enough time for lunch and souvenir shopping. There were folks with kids, honeymooners, and retirees in the group and everyone seemed happy. I recommend this as a good first day for your visit to Niagara Falls. Hope you get Josh as a guide!

Over, under, beside and in Niagara Falls fun
Debbie_H, Jun 2023
The maid of the mist boat ride and cave of the winds. Both on the American side. But we explored the Canadian side as well. Our guide Dayna was knowledgeable and entertaining. I would do another trip with over the falls tour company and would recommend them to friends
Touring Both the American and Canadian Sides

Our tour guide, Jessica, was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable and went out of her way to show us Goat Island and Three Sisters Island that weren’t part of the tour.
Lida_H, Jun 2023
JESSICA WAS A FANTASTIC GUIDE. She was enthusiastic, helpful with offering to take photos, and she suggested many caring ideas. I was especially appreciative that she projected her voice so I could hear everything she said. I am 81, travel alone and have a hearing problem which even my hearing aids often don't help. I was at the end of a long trip, but she helped me be glad I had driven the extra miles and had stayed the extra two nights for this tour.
Great tour

Seeing the falls for the first time. Our guide was great. Telling about some of the history of the falls area.
Our tour guide Roland was...

Our tour guide Roland was amazing! We visit all spots and attractions which were planned. The waterfalls on Canadian side are the best!
Our guide Brian was...
Alan_A, May 2023
Our guide Brian was terrific! He was well informed, entertaining and considerate. The only annoying thing was lunch in Canada. I am shocked at paying just shy of $100 US for 2 plates of poutan, one beer and two ice cream cones. That should have cost no more than $30-$35 anywhere in the US. Very very annoying

Highly recommend this concentrated tour with David that offered enough information to make it interesting without an overload of forgettable facts to bore you! The itinerary’s efficiency and expediency gave a thorough view of the Falls on both borders.
This is a Must!

The tour was great and Eduardo was an excellent guide. Going to recommend this tour to friends. The bus was comfortable and since we visited right before Memorial Day there were no long lines at any of our scheduled stops.

Awesome way to see both sides of Falls shame about the service!!
Glenys_B, May 2023
My reason for taking the tour was to see the Niagara Falls. The tour did not disappoint in that respect. During booking on Viator I was able to select a pickup from my Buffalo Hotel. This was the main reason I selected this particular tour. However the tour company contacted me to advise they didn't pick up from Buffalo and I would need to make my own way to a pickup point in Niagsra. This entailed catching a public bus (or an expensive taxi fare).. The staff at the tour company were less than helpful. The pick up in Niagara was a few minutes late but no real issue as I was last pickup My second issue was at the end of the tour during drop-off. The driver/guide forgot to drop me off during the Niagara dropoff. It was not until we were on our way to Grand Island that I realised. I notified the driver but had to wait until last again and we returned to Niagara and subsequently missed my 5.12pm bus back to Niagara. I had to wait around on my own for the next bus. Not ideal.
