Full description

Depart New York City and journey to Niagara Falls in New York State to experience the natural wonder from multiple perspectives. Ride the famous Maid of the Mist boat and get up close to attractions such as Horseshoe Falls and American Falls.

Leave NYC late at night to arrive in the early morning to morning-mist rainbows and the falls’ magnificent roars. Alternatively, depart New York City in the morning for a chance to see the falls change from day to night, and to witness a light show and fireworks.

Hear the roar of the waterfalls and see magical rainbows that'll take your breath away in the early morning before the crowds arrive. Climb aboard the famous Maid of the Mist boat to get up close to the immense Horseshoe Falls.

Visit attractions such as the uninhabited Goat Island and Luna Island on the Niagara River. Get stunning views of the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls and gaze in awe at the rapids of the Niagara River as it tumbles towards the amazing cascades.

Everything organized WELL. It 's definitely a concussion but in my opinion it IS WRONG. The VERY WELL structured trip. Departures at 07:00 Punctual Stop at 09:00 for breakfast Stop at 11:00 for "pee" Stop at 13:00 for lunch Stop at 15:00 for "pee" Arrived at the falls. Everything really perfect The guides, both on the bus and then those on the ground prepared, friendly, helpful. The waterfalls ... Well ... What can I say ... A marvel of nature, truly spectacular .... The only "NEGATIVE NOTE" but if we really want to find one it was the WI-FI, on the bus it worked VERY bad. Council, on the bus there are power sockets but not USB, so don't be like me and remember the adapter;)

The long drive from New York City to Niagara Falls State Park is worth it. Getting to see the rapids, the falls from the US and Canada on the Maid of the Mist was a sight to behold. You most definitely will enjoy the the walking tour as you will get to see the Falls from different areas of the park and the history of this natural marvel. The Lights that illuminate the Falls at night as well as the Fireworks. Our guides shared their extensive knowledge of the history of the Falls and funfacts about persons who contributed to the legacy the Falls.
