Full description
Niagara Falls is simply amazing. The powerful combination of 3 separate waterfalls that make up Niagara must be experienced in person to realize their magnificence. On this day trip, you will meet at the airport and jump on a plane for a 1.5 hour flight to Niagara Falls, USA. Before your in-flight coffee is cold you'll be landing right outside the Falls. 

You will be met by a driver/guide who will transfer you into the heart of the Niagara Falls action – you’ll be in front of the famous Maid of the Mist. This tour includes a ticket on this famous sightseeing cruise, getting you right up close to the thundering falls! (Niagara Adventure Theater in substitute in the winter).

After a (sometimes wet) cruise, stroll the city to visit various aerospace and science museums, casinos, observatories and much more. For the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls, including the American Falls, the clear choice is Niagara Falls Observation Tower. Extending out dramatically over Niagara Gorge, the architectural wonder affords unobstructed views of the wild cascades of Niagara Falls, as well as the raging whitewater below. 

For aviation enthusiasts, visit the Ira G Ross Aerospace Museum. This organization is devoted to the efforts of Western United States during the war years and includes the recently salvaged P39:The Lend Lease, currently under restoration after 50+ years resting at the bottom of a lake. For children of all ages, perhaps pay a visit to the Wax Museum or the Niagara Science Museum.

After working up an appetite, enjoy a VIP Priority Seating 2-course meal at Hard Rock Cafe Niagara. A delicious meal with just a short wait will fuel you for a short walk to the various casinos where you’ll indulge in some afternoon excitement. The choices are yours – plan your day the way it suits you most. 

At the end of the day, you'll be shuttled back to the airport. Take a 80-minute snooze on the plane back to Washington DC.
