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 thereGiven 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
I can unreservedly recommend this trip. We were collected on time and from there on everything ran smoothly, with the apportionment of time between the various stops just right. Our guide Salvatore gave us a very informative commentary as well as providing useful hints which allowed us to make best use of our time. Overall great value for money.
It’s important to know the area is extremely packed with tourists Also, if you’re coming from Toronto getting back is a beast.....Phone service was a problem for us (US TMobile) and the cost getting to the Falls were $200+ and getting back back was near the same. However we split the cost 5 ways so renting a car would’ve been ideal.
This trip was fun, the boat ride under the falls was the best part. The place itself a little too touristy but the falls are still beautiful. Our guide and bus driver Bernard was such a nice person and guide, he had a great sense of humor, great knowledge, and he went beyond his duties to help out when I needed to get back earlier to Toronto to catch my flight. Magically he arranged for me to go on another tourbus, and he drove me to the new departure location himself. He then followed up to check that everything went ok. Fantastic!
The Tour Guide, Mr. Ziqi Li and the Driver were very informative and patient. Very hospitable and comforting to all aboard. My sister has Parkinson and Dementia, they assisted in every way possible with her walker and caring for her down and up the stairs. June 13th was my (Denise) birthday and Mr. Ziqi greeted me with a birthday wish, so thoughtful.
Wanna see the falls from every angle possible? Then book this tour. You see the falls from above in the Skylon tower and a helo. You see the falls from the river. You see the falls from behind and below. Great experience!
