It was truly a wonderful experience. To the point where my mom cried with joy. This is very memorable and I would reccomend Brian as a great tour guide. He keeps everyone needs in mind and makes sure everyone has a great time.

A good option to Niagara Falls from NYC

Our group was the only tourists at that time so we went all the way by car not bus. That was great for me as I had 2 toddlers, but would be bad for someone who gets car sick easily. The tour manager was experienced , very considerate and flexible enough to modify plans according to the weather (the Hurricane Elsa was approaching to east coast). The strength of this tour is that we have several chances over 2 days to see the falls even if the weather is not great. The falls view was so spectacular. The weakness is meals which we could get on the way. We had junk foods and deli from supermarkets. There was no microwave in our room at the hotel. So my little kids had to drink cold milk. The Made of the Mist tour doesn’t charge under 5 years old, however, this tour price includes the cost for that for over 3 years old ($350 per person over 3 years old). Where did the change go? I would skip going to the outlet mall if that is our option.

I was worried that I was going to cut short my trip to NY if I did this tour! It was worth it- Bus trip with frequent bathroom/sightseeing stops helped tremendously with my 6 & 7 year old- my 14, 15, and 16 year old loved it!! Lot of history in between!! Grandma did wonderful walking!! Totally recommend!! Brian our tour guide was amazing!!!

Took this organized trip in early January 2020. Booking was easy and efficient, we left NYC at 7am from a fairly easy spot to find in the city. Bus ride was made much easier with appropriately placed breaks and pull overs, the driver Harold was a kind, patient man and an excellent, safe driver. Got to the american side of the falls with enough time to enjoy the bridge view and walk around the park before heading back to the bud to cross the border to Canada, we were able to stop at the duty free as well. We arrived at the hotel (Ramada, exceeded expectations) at a very reasonable hour, around 6:30pm, and were given a free night to roam about and walk to the falls at night. Wake up call the next day was around 7am, left after breakfast to see the falls in day light and take the Journey Behind the Falls tour, as the boat ride is unavailable during winter months. From there, with sufficient timing we left to head back to New York with ample stops for food etc. (bus was also equipped with a restroom), got 1.5 hours at the Tannersville PA outlet for shopping and headed straight back to NYC from there, got back around 7:30pm. All in all this trip is very well thought out, not at all overwhelming or exhausting. Our tour guide,Bruno, also elevated the experience with interesting anecdotes along the way, he was very patient with the large group we were and accommodated whatever individual needs he could. I highly recommend this quick and satisfying trip!

terrible experience

I had no idea that my booking for 4 pax is for ONE room night stay! Why was it not stated anywhere? Also Maid of the Mist was not included because it was closed! Shouldnt we have been informed before that ?
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
We are very sorry that that you had confusion of this kind. If one resrvation was made for 4 passenegrs and it is not indicated that family needs two rooms system is asigning only 1 room. On our website it is clearly stated that Maid of the Mist doesn't operate in Winter due to snow and ice conditions. We do have winter attraction Juourney Behind the Falls. Thanks Mike Amadeo Travel
