What To Expect

Why choose between an American tour of Niagara Falls or a Canadian one? A proper visit to Niagara Falls includes activities on both sides of the border. This tour takes care of that important detail.

Get things started on the right foot with a convenient hotel pickup (from Niagara Falls area) in a comfortable sightseeing vehicle, complete with an expert guide who knows everything there is to know about Niagara Falls.

This day trip to Niagara Falls hits all the hot spots of the area.

What more can be said about the Maid of the Mist boat cruise? This is the ultimate Niagara Falls activity and no trip to the falls is complete without it. Grab a poncho and get up close and personal with the falls. Feel the cool spray and the powerful sounds of the water. This is the experience of a lifetime for those taking the tour between late April and October.

Outside of those dates, take an equally exciting “Journey Behind the Falls” to explore the scenic tunnels below and behind the Canadian Horseshoe Falls. Make no mistake—this is as close to the falls as anyone wants to be. The sound is like thunder and the view is breathtaking. Stand back, or in this case stand just close enough to feel the power. It’s exhilarating.

Other stops on this tour include the Niagara Gorge, Goat Island, Prospect Point Park observation tower overlooking the falls, Queen Victoria Park, and the famous Floral Clock, one of the largest in the world.

Please note: The Maid of the Mist 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.

Dana gets a 5. She was so friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. We went to the Maid of Mist which was an awesome experience and to other falls which were all breathtaking to take pics and videos of. We had lunch in the Hungry Moose which was mediocre food and very overpriced. I bought 2 Panninis and 2 small chicken soups with 1 beer and was charged 81 bucks... After lunch we went to the Canadian side. I was looking forward to visiting the Skyline but it wasn't at all what I was expecting, in fact it was very boring to us but all in all it was a very pleasant experience and Dana was lovely to have as a tour guide. Thanks

Team Nick for life
Cynthia_K, Apr 2024
Nick gave our family of 9 the best possible Niagra Falls experience we could have hoped for. Everything was handled and ran so smooth. Nick shared stories between stops, answered all of my kid’s questions and made us all feel welcome. After the tour was over, there was nothing we missed experiencing. Checked all the boxes!
Get Brian
Ralph_L, Apr 2024
Brian is an exceptional tour guide. I wish we had had him on some of our previous large group tours in other destinations. He gave us in depth knowledge of Niagara Falls plus tips that made our experience even more memorable. He is articulate and funny.

Great tour to see everything
Pamelina_B, Mar 2024
Nancy was a great guide. This trip was worth the price. We got to see so much in one day. Our group was small (10) so we easily navigated through the areas. Nancy provided a lot of historical facts to go along with each area. It was truly a great experience.
Niagara Falls is awesome
