This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Niagara Falls, Ontario L2G 3Y9 Canada

After being collected from your Midtown Manhattan hotel, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight to Upstate New York (approximately one hour). On arrival, you will be met by your guide for the day to board the bus to Niagara Falls.

After lunch, it's time to board the famous "Maid of the Mist" boat for an up-close Niagara Falls experience. The 30-minute cruise takes you through the foaming waters to the base of the American Falls and the basin of Horseshoe Falls. You will get close enough to the falls to feel their cool mist on your skin.

The "Maid of the Mist" operates only in the warmer months, from May to October, so if you are traveling from November to April you will visit the Journey Behind the Falls instead. An elevator takes you behind the great sheet of Niagara Falls for a thunderous up-close view of Niagara Falls.

I have wanted to see Niagara Falls since I was a very young girl. Our tour guide, Edwardo, made it such a special visit! He was knowledgeable with his comments about the history of the Falls, current facts, and taking our group to all points of viewing both in Canada as well as the US. He saw to it that we all boarded the Maid of the Mist boat ride in a timely way, as well as gave us all postcards of our experience. Lunch was delicious and in such a scenic location. Edwardo is such an asset to your tour company; a friendly and caring man, who not only gave us the tour in English but also Spanish to members of our tour who did not speak English. He was incredible!!

Very well organised tour. Collected by taxi from hotel on time and boarding passes supplied by driver. Greeted on arrival at Bufallo by Martha, our tour guide for the day. We took the boat trip then had excellent lunch at Sheraton Hotel. Afterwards we were driven to local venues of interest and given time there to explore and take photos. Martha was extremely knowledgable, having 25 years experience. She saw us off at the airport and left us with a lasting memory of her friendliness. The same driver brought us back to the hotel and he was very friendly as well. We consider the whole day good value for money and would recommend it.

All worked out very well with on time pick up in a comfortable car. Flight was good, despite the delay on return to JFK (but not the tour operator fault). The Falls were amazing and I recommend this trip to all.

I was a little dubious about this trip after reading some of the reviews but I couldn't have been more wrong. It was a fantastic day - very well organised and worth every penny. It was an early start - 5am hotel pick up for transfer to JFK. Escorted to the terminal and provided with boarding passes and gate details for flight to Buffalo. Met on arrival at Buffalo airport by our guide Eduardo and onto the bus for transfer to Niagara. Got to see the Falls from every angle, on both American and Canadian sides with plenty of time at each stop. Very nice buffet lunch at the Sheraton hotel. Transfer back to Buffalo for flight back to NY and then picked up by bus for trip back to our hotel. Very professional staff throughout. Highlight of the trip was the boat trip on Maid of the Mist - unforgettable experience!

A truly memorable trip fully professional and well organised from start to finish. The lunch was tasty and plentiful. Plenty of time for photo opportunities. Would fully recommend this trip. Safe to say my husband had a truly memorable birthday. The whole trip ran so smoothly from early pick up at 3.30 am to our pick up at Buffalo airport to our flights and pick up from JFK to return to our hotel. Our flight home was 3pm so got back to our hotel by 5pm. Early enough to enjoy our evening. Thanks to our guide and driver Martha

What a great spectacle the falls are but be aware this is an extremely long day. We were collected at 4am for a 6.30am flight to Buffalo. Unfortunately that day our Jet Blue flight was delayed 2 hrs so our time in the Niagra area was shortened. The ride on the "Maid of the Mist" is exceptional and not to be missed. We were then scheduled to go to the Canadian side of the falls for lunch and further viewing. There were huge queues at the Canadian border and it took over an hour to get to immigration control. In effect we went to Canada for 1 hr then had to return to the American side as we couldnt be late for our 5pm flight back to New York. We did spend an hour on Goat Island where you can view the falls but between flight delays and hold ups at the border there was more sitting and waiting than viewing. Disappointing but not the companies fault at all.

You see Niagara Falls from a lot of different vantage points. The trip is worth the price when you consider all the park entrance fees, the buffet, the bus, tour guide, Maid of the Mist, and the air travel. I just wish that our tour guide ate lunch with us at the buffet and joined us on Maid of the Mist. I would have loved to have had a conversation with him at lunch and ask him some questions while we were on the boat.

Cab driver was nice on time, boarding was a bit messy (but not the foult of Viator), good flight and excellent pickup at Buffalo of a guide who spoke 3 languagues. Great group from all different part of the world. We saw every part of the Niagara Falls. The Canadian and the American part. The trip with the boat was excellent as well. The lunch and the view from the Sheraton was very good! No regrets taking this tour!
