Full description
Depart New York City and journey to Niagara Falls in New York State to experience the natural wonder from multiple perspectives. By leaving NYC late at night, you'll arrive in the early morning to morning-mist rainbows and the falls’ magnificent roars. Alternatively, departing New York City in the morning will grant you the chance to see the falls change from day to night, and to witness the amazing light show while standing in awe of the fireworks overhead. 

Hear the roar of the waterfalls and see magical rainbows to 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.

Definitely "not very comfortable" excursion to do in a day, but the Niagara Falls certainly deserve the effort of the journey and of "little sleep". It is known a priori when you buy the excursion that will be challenging from the point of view of the "grind" but it is feasible ... we even the next day we added Washington and Philadelphia with up early at 4 and we are still alive!

The guide was great: the guides really knew, gave a lot of tips and information, relatively small group ~ 15 people and the Niagara Falls are absolutely worth seeing !!! I only have to deduct at the bus ride. The bus was neat, clean and wifi, but you could not sleep comfortably on the seats (at 7 hours and 7 hours back, should you at least be able to sleep), next time I would definitely take a comfortable pillow

It is very well organized, even if it is good to know that it is very demanding for the many hours of coaching. a bit more expensive excursion you don't understand if they do it.
