Want to get to know Niagara Falls? This is the tour with the most iconic, must-do experiences. Let’s get started.

After a hotel pickup from the New York or Ontario side, start with an exciting ride up to the observation deck at the top of the majestic Skylon Tower. Enjoy the incredible view of the Niagara River and all three waterfalls—the American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls from 520 feet (158 m) in the air.

Next, cross to the US side and get ready for the experience of a lifetime on the Maid of the Mist cruise. This is as good as it gets, the best way to experience one of the world’s most amazing natural wonders. The cruise runs from early May to late October.

During the rest of the year, experience the Journey Behind the Falls excursion, where the sound of the falls is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand in the mist and feel the rush where the Horseshoe Falls rumble from 13 stories above—dropping over 700,000 gallons of water every second at 40 miles per hour. Now that’s powerful.

Other highlights include Table Rock Centre, a retail and observation complex located at the brink of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls; Queen Victoria Park, the main parkland in Niagara Falls, opposite the Canadian Horseshoe and American Falls (with Sir Harry Oakes Gardens); the Upper Canadian Rapids from Three Sisters Island, the Lower Niagara River and Gorge, and Whirlpool State Park, overlooking the Niagara Whirlpool with spectacular views of the rapids, the whirlpool itself and the Niagara River.

Please note: The Maid of the Mist portion of this tour departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers booking this tour must have appropriate documentation to enter the United States and Canada.

Great people - too long, food costs $$$

Our guide grew up in the area and was very knowledgeable and personable! Everyone we interacted with was great! Downsides- 1. We were on this tour for 9 hours! We could have definitely done it all in 4-5 hrs. 2. We were hijacked and taken to a lunch spot (isolated from main drag) where food was outrageously expensive. Since we were told we had another 3 hours on the tour, we had to eat - unhappy about that! For $120/person, they could have provided snacks, a lunch credit, or not kept us out so long so we could decide if we wanted to eat or not.

Adam was a fantastic host and guide. We learned so much more than we anticipated and under-estimated the history we thought we knew about the falls and both US and Canadian Parks. We would do this again with more friends or family.

First of all, there was Danya and she is worth the trip. This young woman puts her heart and soul into her journey with you. Intelligent, knowledgeable, and practical. She knows everyone on the tour so instead of standing in line, you get to go to the front and pass lots of others. The sites were also incredible. Maid of the Mist was awesome and spectacular. Behind the falls, and fury which is a 4d movie are both excellent. My wife and I would suggest you sign up for all the fun. The Aero Car is an incredible view of going over the falls and looking down at the whirlpools and the speed of the river. We hope you enjoy. Thank you. T&B

Jessica was a fantastic guide! This was a wonderful excursion with all the best stops! Jessica provided great tips throughout the different stops. Brought us not just to the planned activities but also some highlighted features along the way that were a pleasant surprise! We travelled with elderly family with a wheelchair and she was incredibly helpful with guiding us to the best routes to experience everything possible. Jessica was energetic, executed a great travel route, and made this a memorable and fun experience! Go Team Jessica!
