Full description

Embark on a day trip to Niagara Falls from New York City. Witness the dramatic views of the falls and avoid the hassle of border-crossing traffic and visa checks as this tour visits only the falls on the American side.

Head north towards Niagara Falls in the late evening, making one stop along the way. Upon arrival in the morning, have breakfast and relax before traveling to the American side of the falls.

Board the famous Maid Of The Mist, bringing you to the Horseshoe Falls, the most spectacular part of Niagara Falls. Continue to other major sights on Goat Island, including Bridal Veil Falls.

Beautiful experience to be recommended absolutely. You travel at night so upon arrival you are rested enough to enjoy a unique show! The guide Emily is very good and very prepared. The only pity is that in the cold period you don't have access to all the viewpoints as it is risky for the ice. Highly recommended

The round trip by bus is very tiring, it takes no less than 16 hours. Little time at the falls, In November you can not have the experience of the boat, at least from the US part, in the Canadian part we did see activity. The 2-day trip would be a better option. When the weather is tolerable, they shouldn't turn on the heating, it really became a torment at times.

Tour was very well organized. Appreciate Emily for managing to handle the conversation and commentary in Spanish and English alike and for keeping it short and sweet. It was an unforgettable moment for us to see the rainbow at Niagara falls in the morning. Thank you Emily and Get your guide team.
