The tour was great. The bus stops at the grocery store about 3 hours into the trip. I highly recommend getting your breakfast and lunch at that time. The food options at the falls aren’t great. You get about 3/4 hours at the falls with the ride on the maid of the mist plenty of time to do the cave of the winds on your own. The guide was very nice and the ride has lots of good scenery.

Carlos Becerra was an excellent tour guide! He was early at the meeting point to check us in. He was very knowledgeable, and was very specific about what we could expect. The trip took 7 hours to get from Manhattan to Niagara Falls, but it didn't feel like 7 hours. The bus was very comfortable, and they gave us a bathroom stop and a chance to grab breakfast at the 3 hour mark. The falls were breathtaking!

We reached the Hotel Renaissance,Times Square at 3.30 am. But when the bus came, the guide told us that our name is not there in the list of travellers going to Niagara Falls. As there was space in the bus, he allowed us to board the bus.If the bus would have been full ,he would have left us. Kindly check ,why our name was not there in the list of passengers ?
