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.

The tour can only be recommended with reservations. Niagara Falls is one of a kind and the onsite guide was great. But it is relatively exhausting to be on the road for 24 hours and the day after was half wasted because we had to recover from the drive. And that's the weak point. The long bus ride. The bus was old and not really comfortable. That together with the not really good roads wasn't fun. Sockets didn't work. The air conditioning was always on and everyone was freezing. The drivers were rather disinterested and did their thing. Better to arrive and stay overnight independently.

The trip is highly recommended, we had a great time, with memories for life. Bus left on time, there were enough breaks planned. When we arrived at Niagara Falls, we were picked up by our guides, who were great. The boat trip then took place, followed by the visit to the national park with great views of all three waterfalls. A lot was said and questions could be asked at any time. After that we had free time and in the evening we could marvel at the waterfalls in the play of colors and the fireworks. It should be noted that you sit in the bus for a very long time, 7 hours there and 7 hours back.

Great guide, languages only English and Spanish. Italian seems to be a dead language, otherwise it would be 5 stars. The trip is very well organized, many breaks that allow travelers to refresh themselves. The falls are great and worth the price. The restaurants on the spot have prohibitive prices, at least for those who live on an Italian salary so it is better to bring food. Otherwise excellent.
