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.

At the beginning I thought oh you start so early, but since you slept a lot on the way there it went great. We took a pee break every two hours and a longer break. The guides on site drive great and gave tips for photos again. I'm still on the Canadian side which went for Europeans without a visa. I would recommend the tour to everyone because you can't get there quickly

Great organization, great travel companion and great guide on site. The guide took a lot of time to explain everything, to answer questions and, if requested, to take photos. Visiting the Canadian side was also possible, the guide took you to the border. Enough breaks (2-3 breaks) during the 7 hour bus ride. Breaks didn't get the upper hand either, mostly between 5-10 minutes. All in all a very successful excursion, even if it was very strenuous because it was 22 hours on the road. We were able to sleep a little on the bus overnight and that was enough for the day. Then again 1 night sleep properly in the hotel and everything was great again.

The two drivers were really nice and took enough breaks (too long for me personally). The bus was relatively noisy, luckily I had earplugs with me and on the way back the air conditioning was set a bit too high, it was really cold. The length of the tour at de Niagara Falls was perfectly adequate. The two tour guides were in a great mood and explained all questions several times.
