Full description
Escape the hectic atmosphere of New York for a night on this 2-day tour to Niagara Falls. You will travel to both the US and Canadian side of the Falls, get the chance to ride under the Falls on the famous Maid of the Mist, and enjoy some time to shop for bargains at the outlet mall. Day 1: Your air-conditioned van or bus departs from the Big Apple and heads north, where it passes the beautiful Delaware Gap and then makes its way to Watkins Glen State Park in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. Stretch your legs on a walk through Watkins Glen Canyon for views of the beautiful waterfalls. On the way to Niagara Falls, pass by the stunning Seneca Lake. Arrive in Niagara Falls in the late afternoon. Tour the American side of Niagara Falls, including the American Falls, Goat Island, and Sister Island. Once the sun sets, a night tour of Niagara Falls showcases colorful lighting of the thundering waters. Day 2: After enjoying a continental breakfast at the hotel, head to the thundering water of Niagara Falls. See both the Niagara and the Horseshoe Falls up close and experience their true power from the Maid of the Mist, available from May to October. In April, when the Maid of the Mist is not operating, take a tour of the Scenic Tunnels. Around noon, its time to head south and back to New York City. Stretch your legs in a more urban area, with a shopping excursion at one of the large outlet malls along the way. Then, relax as the van or bus delivers you back to the city in time for you to grab a late dinner.

For anyone who has never been to Niagara this is a must. We expected the Falls to be spectacular but this completely surpassed our expectations. Fairly essential to do the two day trip as it goes in to Canada for a short while, where we found the Falls were even more spectacular!

This was definitely a trip I would highly recommend ! It was a magical experience seeing The Niagra Falls in the snow ! The guide was great and the trip so well organised. Loved it ! My daughter and I went for her 21 st birthday treat and it was a fantastic choice !

Best tour ever

This tour was the best part of my holiday in NY. From the booking to the arrival back to NYC, everything was smooth and well organised. Our tour guide was just great, he gave us such an extensive information from the history of the USA to every single piece of place we went to or saw. He spoke three languages (four actually if I include his mother tounge) and translated everything to our Italian and German tourmates too. The way up to Niagara Falls went well, the driver drove safely and impeccable. We stopped two or three times on the way, so nobody had to suffer for not being able to use bathroom or not having a meal. The Falls itself is AWESOME! Hard to describe it with words, this is a must-see attraction. Both side, the American and the Canadian as well. I personally preferred the Canadian side, although, knowing I woke up only a couple of minutes walking from it gave me extra boost to feel like that. The little city on the Canadian side is pretty cool too, can't wait to go back.
