Niagara Falls' unique location between Canada and the US comprises of three waterfalls, not just one! Whether you want to see its frozen winter splendor or thunderous power in summer, both sides offer very different spectacles to choose from.
90% of the Niagara River flows over Canada's Horseshoe Falls. It doesn't just look awesome, its raw power is literally eroding the US-Canada border!
As the name suggests, the American Falls is on the American side. It offers some of the most extreme views, with visitors able to get nail-bitingly close to the edge!
Located in New York State, Bridal Veil is by far the smallest of the three. It's worth visiting the Cave of Winds attraction to see the water flow over you from the falls' base!
63-year-old Annie Taylor became the first of many to journey over Horseshoe Falls in a barrel. Horseshoe is terribly dangerous, but the others are too rocky to survive!
Boat tours operate in Niagara Gorge at the foot of the falls. Each country has different tour operators, so compare before deciding which side of the border to journey from.
A day should be enough to see Niagara Falls but it's worth scheduling more time if you plan to take advantage of the many activities, tours, and boat cruises available. It is very common for people to set aside a day-trip as part of a longer stay in Toronto or New York.
July to August are, unsurprisingly, the busiest months. If you want to avoid the crowds then going in June or September will make a considerable difference. Having said that, there are few things as awe-inspiring as the frozen Niagara in winter!
Both Toronto Pearson Airport and Buffalo Airport offer shuttle bus services, some with group discounts. It's worth noting that Toronto is much closer than Buffalo so, unless you're travelling from elsewhere in the US, you're probably better off accessing the falls from the Canadian side. There are direct trains twice a day between Toronto's Union Station and Niagara Falls.
- When should I visit?
- The falls can be be viewed 24 hours a day.
- Is it expensive?
- It is free to view, but you will need to pay parking fees, which can be around $20.
- Will I need a guide?
- It will definitely help. It's worth checking out our best-selling tours.
- How to get there
- Given the location of Niagara Falls between two countries, there are unlimited possibilities to get there. The most direct way would be by car, but there are various bus and coach options, too - it is best to research online first which would suit you best as part of a larger trip to Canada or the US.
- Additional information
- **You're going to get wet from the spray of the falls, so bring a rain jacket! | Make sure you have the appropriate travel documents (e.g. passport, visa) if you plan on crossing the border.*
What people are saying about Niagara Falls
Me and my wife were extremely dissatisfied with disorganization and lack of summer heat preperation that this tour offered. Literally standing over an hour in the full summer heat with no awning, umbrellas or fans through almost the whole line. We're from Florida and almost any attraction we've ever been in is fully prepped for heat. Once we finally decided to wait the entire line and made it down to the boat, all the bad experience with the line seemed to disappear. The beautiful view and mist of the falls cleared way for my 5 star review. Boat takes you within feet of the roaring falls. You get ponchos to keep you from getting soaked. That cool mist kept us cool the rest of the day. Definitely worth the bad line experience.
Pat R was the perfect balance of knowledge and adventure. He was quick to get us from place to place. He gave us the right amount of time to view each site. Our entire family loved spending the day with Pat R. Niagara is beautiful and he enhanced the experience by being prompt and timely from each stopping point. We left feeling like we had seen it ALL. Thanks Pat R.
The tour was well organized and managed! We have enough time at each stop to enjoy the activity. Though the last stop at the Skylon Tower was awesome, the views are breathtaking, I was slightly disappointed that the stops at the Canadian side didn’t include a visit to the cave Behind the Falls. However that isn’t a reason to not do the tour again!!!
Our trip was elongated due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control. Our driver and guide, Jay, made all the difference in the world. He remained positive and upbeat throughout using humor to keep us calm. Jay is a true asset to your company and anyone who travels with him has hits the jackpot!
We were picked up at the hotel and Luis, our tour guide, arranged the tickets and getting to the sites. He also gave us an excellent overview of the sites and what to expect. Overall, a convenient and fun way to see the sites.
