Got to niagra falls on Thursday night to spend Friday walking around sight seeing. It was my girlfriends birthday and she wanted to go see niagra falls so I booked it. Saw alot of amazing sights and had great weathe. Booked a tour Saturday for maid of mist boat ride and cave of the winds. Both were amazing. Our tour guide Nancy was very knowledgeable. And yes even with the ponchos they give you you still get very wet but was well worth it.

The tour was great. We rode on the Maid of the Mist boat, went to Cave in the Winds, Goat Island, 3 Sisters, and saw the whirlpool in the Niagara Falls State Park. We never saw the falls illuminated though. This is what we purchased, but the tour ended at he state park. Then we ere dropped off at place of pick up.

Excellent way to see Niagra Falls

This tour is an excellent way to see Niagra Falls. You are picked up and dropped off at your hotel. Both the Maid of the Mist and the Cave of the Winds are amazing tours! My wife and I had the best time and we got drenched and loved every minute of it!
